Changing how construction operates
Home improvement has been done the same way for decades. Most of the work is completed by independent contractors in the US, who each have their own approach. The problem is that these different approaches are almost all rooted in inefficient labor and manual processes—resulting in waiting weeks just to get a proposal. Once projects do get started, they often suffer from poor communication, frequent delays, and the surprise of added costs. For real estate, this can be a deal killer and present a lot of risk to agents who need to get their client’s homes market ready.
The industry needs streamlining, which is why Curbio is reinventing home improvement for real estate with its tech-powered process that takes the coordination away from contractors, so they can focus on what they do best—their trades.
Powered by technology, an extensive five-star trade network, and rock-steady vendor partnerships, Curbio is able to complete projects 65% faster than the typical contractor. Streamlining not only means the projects get completed faster, but it also means that contractors’ time is freed up quicker, so they can complete more jobs and make more homeowners happy.
Updating homes to meet modern-day needs
There’s more demand than supply for new construction, and yet, new housing starts in April fell 9% from March. It’s not an easy problem to solve—especially when we don’t have nearly enough goods and service providers necessary to ramp up building. While the construction industry continues to recover, we can focus on updating homes—that are either outdated or in poor condition—to meet the needs of today’s buyers who are looking for move-in ready.
