Post Pandemic home sales will need to be more updated than before. There’s a simpler way for you to get that done. Read on…

Retro can be cool, but there IS such a thing as too much

During the last 2 years of COVID pandemic home sale, almost anything could sell as people rushed to get out of the cities and into fresh, non-virused air.

The costs were high, and sometimes renos were inevitable, since there was such a scant few good homes at a decent price available.

As homeowners ‘age out’ as well, they leave homes that haven’t been updated in decades to the now ‘back to reality’ real estate market. Millennials and Gen Zs don’t particularly care to have massive remodeling projects, and these properties will not bring the prices that they could with some (fairly) easy fixups.

Work With Your Favorite Realtor, Get Your Home Fixed!

There are two companies at the forefront of the real estate industry that allow you the homeowner to have your home remodeled BEFORE you sell, so you get the profit, not a ‘home flipper’ who give you pennies on the actual dollar worth of your property.

Even the exterior of your home can see improvements. And you don’t pay a penny until you ‘close’ or sign off on the sale of your home.

What’s the catch? There must be one. Nope, not here.

Curbio & Revive

Curbio was one of the first companies to see that they could be the ‘general contractor’ for those homes that Realtors had trouble selling., thus helping the homeowner, helping the Realtor, and collecting the contractor fee that some other contractor might get from the ‘home flipper’.

Revive is a newer company with a slightly different method. They work WITH a contractor that they vet, but do not work FOR Revive. This gives Revive a wider area in which to offer remodeling work. They also have a Lite program, up to $25,000 that the seller and agent coordinate themselves.

Both companies require you to be working with the Realtor of your choice, and you must keep the partnership all the way through the transaction.

You may either sell the home, or pay for the actual remodeling done, if you choose not to sell after it is beautified. It’s happened!
