Don’t Just Sell Your Home – Sell For 128% of Its Value
Whether you think you are a month away from putting your home up for sale or two years from listing your house on the market, you want to make sure that when you do, you get the most money back. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to sell your home for more than it is currently worth, and we want to help.
At Curbio, we are a pay-at-closing home improvement solution that helps homeowners like you sell their homes faster and for more. Sellers who work with us will see an average return on investment of 269%. That is right. Our houses sell for 28% more than those without any updates before they go on the market. So, by working with us, your home could sell for 128% of its current value. That is a lot of money you could be missing out on if your home hits the market as it is now.
How Do We Do It?
There are quite a few ways we go about increasing home value for homeowners who are ready to sell. Because every property is different, we look at what home improvement projects are best for your house and your local market. These updates can vary greatly, but generally, they fall into a few different categories.
Cover the Basics
No home is ready for the market without a little help. Before any house goes up for sale, the seller should cover their bases and make sure they prep their home appropriately. Some basic home improvement preparations before selling can drastically improve the look of your home as well as increase its value. These types of updates also tend to be relatively easy and fast.
In a previous project, we focused on painting walls and cabinets, refinishing the floor, and updating the kitchen hardware. Together, these simple updates helped the seller make a profit of $222,515 after project costs. If you neglect to make basic updates like this in your home, you could miss out on a significant chunk of change when you go to sell.
Spruce Up the Exterior
Another easy way we help boost the return on investment of your property is with updates to the exterior of the home before selling. The front of your home especially should welcome potential buyers and help draw them in. Do not underestimate the power of some good landscaping to make your home look more inviting. Some power washing and painting can also transform the outside of your home and boost your curb appeal. These updates alone can bump up your resale value significantly and help lure in potential buyers.
Make Fixes and Renovate
Especially if your home is older or has some significant wear and tear, it may need some bigger updates before it can be competitive in the current market. The first step is fixing any problems. These fixes alone can drastically increase the value.
Additionally, remodeling the kitchen, bathrooms, or basement can help take your home from unattractive and dated to modern and inviting. These bigger renovations can also lead to a big payout. One such renovation project we did in the Washington, D.C. area helped the seller to walk away with $106,137 in profit after project costs.
Stage and Declutter
After making any necessary updates or fixes to the property, we want to help you present your home in its best light when it goes on the market. Staging is designed to do just that. Decluttering an overcrowded room, organizing stray items, and putting personal effects away can make a cramped space look much bigger. A few interior design updates and some modern decorations can make a dated room look like new. Together, these updates can help you bump up your asking price as buyers are able to realize the full potential of your home.
