Getting your home prepared before you put it on the market helps you maximize the amount of money you can get for its sale. A renovated home is likely to spend fewer days on the market. This is exactly what iBuyer does with most homes.
You can either decide to do a home renovation completely on your own, although this is not always easy and can be very stressful. However, there are two other choices available to you. These are called home renovation programs. One choice is to use Curbio, and the other is to decide on my team. We break down the differences here to make it easier for you to decide which one suits you most.
Curbio undertakes to drive more buyers to your home by helping you make the smartest updates. They work together with you, the seller, but they also work together with us, the agents. In the end, their process ensures we all get paid at the same time.
Curbio uses technology to ensure the renovations are started and completed on time, making the renovation completely stress-free for you. They use state-of-the-art technology which offers you a virtual viewing of the proposed changes in detail, without the need for a contractor to visit your home.
The progress of the work is tracked completely by Curbio, leaving you the time to pursue other important tasks. Curbio also offers an app where you can track the progress of your home renovation.
The pros of using them include:
There is a downside to using someone like Curbio for your home renovation because they do charge more than it would cost to use contractors of your own.
It is not easy for most people to organize and supervise renovation projects because they often lack experience or are too busy. Many pitfalls need to be avoided when renovating a home that you want to put on the market to sell. A significant one is deciding on which changes will increase your selling price, and which will make no difference whatsoever. The latter is bound to set you back money-wise.
This is where I come in. I have many years of experience in maintenance and renovations. As a student, I did maintenance for my father’s properties for extra pocket money, that was before I decided that real estate was more profitable.
My experience continues to come in handy now. I can advise you which renovations will bring you the best ROI because I know what buyers are looking for in our market. Besides having inside knowledge about all types of building and renovation work, I also have an excellent team of contractors which I use for various projects. They are all experienced in their field and include builders, dry board, tilers, electricians, plumbers, flooring contractors, etc.
If you are willing to act as your supervisor and pay for these renovations out of pocket, I have found that you can save yourself anywhere between 5 and 10%.
Renovations to your home help you make a quicker sale. It’s up to you to choose the way that suits you best.
