Potomac, MD.,—May 14, 2020—Curbio, the leading pre-sale renovation company, today resumed in the Seattle metro region. The company, which exclusively completes pre-sale renovation projects for Realtors® and their selling clients nationwide, had halted construction in accordance with Washington State coronavirus-related restrictions. With those restrictions now lifted, Curbio has not only resumed work, but is now offering the only contactless pre-sale renovation solution in the country.
As a tech-enabled renovation company, Curbio already handles many aspects of their turn-key process online. The initial estimate, digital site visit, preparation of fixed price contract, and project management, all occur virtually through Curbio’s proprietary online platform. Realtors®, homeowners and Curbio’s project manager use the Curbio Project Portal to track schedules, select materials, receive video updates and communicate about all aspects of the renovation.
During COVID-19, Curbio is relocating homeowners at no additional charge while onsite work is underway. The relocation service is flexible, allowing homeowners to opt for temporary housing or expense funds to move in with friends or relatives. Curbio will also provide a post-renovation 3D video at no cost, to assist the Realtor® in marketing the listing online.
“The safety of our employees, subcontractors and customers has always been of critical importance to us, and remains our top priority as we resume construction,” says Rikki Rogers, VP of Marketing at Curbio. “As we take steps to safely resume operations in Seattle, we’re proud to get back to our core mission: empowering agents to deliver a better pre-sale renovation experience to help grow their business and create more profit for their clients.”
Curbio was created specifically to help Realtors® and their selling clients renovate before listing, so the home is sold quickly and for the best price, while all costs are deferred until the home is sold. Unlike other concierge-style options, Curbio not only defers payment, but has reinvented the renovation process, so projects are completed 60% faster and home sellers are guaranteed a return on investment.
Curbio has developed deep expertise in which renovations maximize sale price, using data from nearly 1,000 pre-sale renovation projects to recommend, design and manage the entire renovation project in a fast and stress-free process. The company only works with homeowners who are represented by a real estate agent, with 100% of its business coming from agent referrals, and has achieved the highest Realtor® satisfaction rates in the renovation industry.
Every Realtor® in Seattle, and all of Curbio’s 20+ markets nationwide, now has a solution they can offer with confidence that delivers consistent quality, complete online visibility, rapid time-to-market and a guaranteed project ROI. Best of all, Curbio handles everything, so Realtors can focus on selling homes, not managing projects.
Curbio first entered the Seattle market in January 2020, kicking off a busy few months of growth for the company that included expansion into several major cities, a new Strategic Alliance Program for brokerages and its first partnership, with Coldwell Banker Bain. The company is currently completing pre-sale renovation on homes across the Seattle area, including Kirkland, Redmond, and Tacoma.
