$40,000 or $7,000 to paint 1368 sq foot rental?

Extensive drywall repair needed in over 1/3 of this 4BR/2BA in Washington,DC. Price includes partial cleaning and then painting of 8 radiators.  Contractor's painters are employees with 10-20 yrs tenure with company.   He uses Benjamin Moore Aura paint.  2 year warranty. He says I would onoyy have to minor touches for next 20 years.  Is it worth it when a p/t painter  will do the same for S10,000 using Sherwin Williams paint?  This painter previously corrected a poor drywall installation of 2 walls and painted with Sherwin Williams small drywall, which looked  good to my untrained eye.  

Current tenant will take good care of property, and paint job for next 2 years, after which I will rent to college students.  

Recommendations?
