POTOMAC, Md. — January 24, 2020 — Curbio Inc., the leading pre-sale home renovation technology company, today announced its expansion into Seattle, WA. Local real estate agents in the competitive Seattle market can now leverage Curbio’s pay-at-close model to help their sellers make smart renovations and maximize sale price, without the hassles or financial risks of traditional renovation.
As the first pre-sale renovation company of its kind, Curbio renovates homes in preparation for sale and defers all payment until closing, delivering a fast, easy renovation experience. Unlike the “concierge” options some real estate brokerages now offer for pre-sale home improvements, Curbio handles the renovation itself and is the licensed and insured general contractor on every project it completes. The company specializes in renovations that increase sellers’ proceeds, and its technology platform accelerates the entire renovation process—from the initial estimate to the materials acquisition and project management phases. By aligning all stakeholders, Curbio has built a “no catch” business model that offers competitively-priced renovations with no interest and no fees.
With Curbio’s unique approach to renovation, Seattle real estate agents will be able to win more listings and increase referrals in 2020. The area is one of the top ten hubs for millennials, the largest home buying demographic in the country and a population that expects updated, move-in ready homes. With January 2019 listed as the busiest month on record for home buyers in the Seattle area (with more than 30% more listing views than the next-highest month), now is an ideal time for sellers and agents in the area to begin benefiting from Curbio’s services.
“Renovated homes sell more quickly and generate greater profit, but homeowners often opt out due to the significant time and financial risk involved,” said Curbio’s VP of Corporate Communications Rikki Rogers. “Agents are similarly hesitant to suggest renovations that will delay time-to-market and require oversight. Often, this means sellers skip the process altogether and go with an iBuyer or lowball offer, leaving significant potential profit on the table. Curbio is helping Seattle agents and sellers rethink this status quo. What’s more, a better renovation experience for sellers means more referrals for agents down the line.”
Curbio’s Seattle launch marks the company’s first expansion to the west coast, with new markets including Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles expected soon. For more information on Curbio, visit curbio.com.
