Refresh with A Fresh Coat of Paint!

It is so important to stand out in today’s world. Today, we have more to distract us than ever before. In the world of real estate, to make an impact, little things can go a long way. 

In today’s blog, we talk about how a small investment can lead to big returns. For example, how just a coat of paint can refresh an old home, giving it new life. If you are selling or renting out it’s important to put your best foot forward and brighten up the living space.

We have put together an easy and quick list for you to be able to give a new fresh spin on your home in a few simple ways:

A bright fresh coat on your outer walls attracts so much attention. Sometimes different colour can help grab attention and give the house character. 

Inside, create a feature wall, use wallpaper or bright contrasting colour to get the colour going and engaging.  If you have a lounge which isn’t the most welcoming space, by just adding a nice bright coloured wall it can not only add some colour but also make it cozy and welcoming. 

Give your furniture new character by just painting over it. Not only will it make your furniture look new, it saves cost and, the colour can complement & add an entire new texture to your home.  

With the new year approaching, this is a great time to invest in your place and, to keep its market appeal!

Achieve your maximum potential!

The real-estate industry is all about developing the right connections and surpassing your potential by understanding the rapidly changing dynamics of the industry. Many agents and property managers face challenges in reaching out to a wider array of clients because they are unable to develop effective networks. 
Cooperative and joint-real estate systems go a long way not only in maximising the success rate of property managers but also in improving customer satisfaction, helping you build a relationship that is based on mutual trust and respect.  Silver Service Real Estate is a cooperative real estate company that emphasises the empowerment of property managers and customers while fostering long-term business relationships.

Many agents prefer to go at it alone while thinking they will be better off without a network mostly because they are unaware of the unlimited benefits that come attached with working with an established firm.

Cooperative real estate teams offer the expertise, experience, and networks that enable property managers to maximise their potential while establishing a strong industry presence. The exposure derived from cooperative real estate teams significantly surpasses the limited outreach of individual agents and managers.

The overall benefits and proactive approach of a stable brand in the market would surely help real estate managers to attain beneficial results in both the short and the long run. The perks of being associated with a formidable brand can only be attained when you will combine your efforts with a proactive brand. The services and approach of Silver Service Real Estate are easy, welcoming and built on trust and teamwork, which makes it easy for different individuals to adapt.

Is your garden spring ready?

Summer is almost here, and before we get carried away with hosting all those backyard BBQ’s and having picture perfect high-teas, we need to get cleaning up the winter weeds and planting those flowering plants to get the garden in full bloom.

To help you make the best of this spring weather, we’ve compiled a list of To-do’s to bring your garden to life;

Fertilise – Start with an Organic based fertilisers. They help new growth and flowering. Liquid fertilisers are a great way to add nutrients to your plants. 

Prune your Shrubs – Early spring is a great time for pruning. Spring pruning triggers new growth, and helps to prevent disease issues. 

Remove winter mulch – Once the temperature starts to warm up in the spring, you can remove any winter mulch you may have added over your sensitive plants last fall.

Clean up the vegetable garden – Pull out any dead vegetable plants that you didn’t get around to removing last fall. Try to remove as much of the plant debris and roots of the plants as you can as you clean up your vegetable garden beds.

Remove those weeds – Spring is a great time to get a jump on garden weeds, and pull them before they have time to become established. Weeds are easy to see in the spring before all the perennial plants start filling in. Hand weeding and using a good thick layer of mulch will not only keep weeds at bay, mulch helps maintain soil temperatures and soil moisture, providing plants with the support needed to grow and perform better.

Maintain your lawns – For the ideal summer lawn, start weeding and feeding today. To keep it looking its best, top dress any bare patches in the lawn, watering in well. Spray with selective weed killer. Fertilising your lawn in the spring will also help it maintain its vibrant green colour and help maintain moisture during the hot summer months.

Pest and disease – A good horticultural oil will help keep plants pest and disease free. Saturate the plant and repeat in two weeks for best results. Treat all types of plants with a horticultural oil every fortnight to keep them bug free.

Pot seedlings – If you enjoy hanging baskets or pots of flowers, now is the time to plant flowering seedlings in them so they will be ready for Christmas. Salvia, daisies, petunias, dianthus, alyssum, lobelia and begonias all look fantastic and grow well in pots or baskets.

This all does sound like a chore, but once you’ve put in that effort your garden would be the blooming with joy ! Last but not the least, remember to wash all your garden furniture and do a big sweep of the garden to remove any debris if left behind.

Happy Spring Cleaning !

Summer is right around the corner and we all love a good BBQ. But sometimes a small mistake can lead up to a huge catastrophe.

Staying safe is everyone’s priority and it is important that we as a part of the greater community take extra precaution and make sure all safety measure are applied.

Some Apartment Building have combustible cladding on the outside. Combustible cladding on the exterior of a building doesn’t necessarily mean that your building is unsafe. However, once a fire starts combustible cladding may contribute to the spread of fire. This not only affects building occupants, but also bystanders and adjoining buildings. When doing a BBQ or using any open open flame outside or in your Balcony make sure you stay fire safe.

There are a few simple steps that you should follow to minimise the risk of fire and will keep you, your neighbours and your family safe

  1. Isolate your BBQ Ensure your BBQ is at least 50 cm from walls, clothing and other materials 
  2. Fully extinguish your cigarette Use a heavy, high-sided ashtray (made of glass, ceramic or metal)
  3. Isolate AC units Ensure clothing and other materials are kept at least 1 meter away
  4. Isolate gas bottles Ensure gas bottles are stored outside, upright and away from sources of heat

CLADDING UPDATES

Cladding safety and essential measures you can take to stay safe during an unfortunate fire emergency. 

Cladding now has been a keen issue for the Victoria building authority and Essential Safety measure (ESM) have been put into practice. 

Essential safety measure or ESM are the safety features required in a building to protect occupants in the event of a fire. ESMs may include :

  • Fire detection 
  • Alarm systems 
  • Fire doors
  • Emergency lighting 
  • Fire hydrants

If maintained adequately these at the time of a fire hazard, are responsible for ensuring everyone can exit the building safely and quickly. Their full functionality is important in case emergency arises.

Owners corporation managers, on behalf of owners, must ensure ESMs are kept up to date and regularly tested. Non-compliance puts occupants, passers-by and adjoining buildings at risk and this can be life threatening as well.  Non-compliance may result in heavy fines. If you would like some more information please contact our partners OC Management Solutions

Essential Safety Measures are more important to be observed around combustible cladding. Combustible cladding does not mean you building is unsafe However, once a fire starts combustible cladding may contribute to the spread of fire.

Non-compliance may result in an infringement notice being issued by your Council or the Fire Authority. Fines may range from $290 to over $17,000 for an individual and over $88,000 if a company is prosecuted.

If you have any questions about how to maintain ESMs, please contact your local fire service fire safety department or your local MBS.

Why Your Property Manager is the Best Person to Sell Your Investment Property?

Are you planning to sell an investment property on your own? 

If you’re the owner of an investment property and struggling to get a deal to the closing table, having a dedicated property manager on your side can make a big difference. For instance, our property managers at Silver Service have successfully been navigating one of the most common problem areas for our clients — balancing the tenant’s rights and obligations with that of the landlord/seller in case they don’t wish to or, cannot afford to sell their investment vacant.

Unlike brokers who exclusively focus on the sale while neglecting the tenant issues, we aim to reach a happy middle ground wherein our client can sell with the tenant in situ without upheaval or required rental deductions.

That said, let’s look at other reasons why the best agent to sell your investment property is the property manager.
