When a Realtor® recommends a general contractor to their seller, they put their reputation, and their listing, on the line. The renovation needs to be completed quickly and improve the value of the home, but most general contractors are not known for timeliness, nor are they experts in renovation ROI. A delayed project, a bad customer experience, or a poor return-on-investment for the seller can cost an agent a lifetime of referrals.

With Curbio, there’s no need to worry. We’re more than a general contractor, we’re a full-service design-build firm that specializes in pre-sale renovation, and we’ve reinvented every step of the renovation process to meet the needs of Realtors® and their selling homeowners.

Curbio Renovates 65% Faster

Delays and missed deadlines are simply the status quo for many contractors. In fact, the 2020 National Construction Payment Report found that less than a third of contractors report finishing projects on time. Long renovations are stressful for all homeowners, but for sellers who are ready to get their homes on the market, they can be a deal-breakerFor Realtors®, these delays lead to wasted time chasing down contractors instead of winning more listings.

Curbio renovates 65% percent faster than the typical contractor, helping listings get on the market more quickly. Curbio’s proprietary tech platform accelerates every step of the renovation, beginning with the estimate. Wuse high definition 3D video to assess the property and determine which renovations will deliver the most value. From there, we generate a detailed, fixed-price proposal, with a room-by-room breakdown of the project cost.

While a typical contractor would need weeks to order all of the materials for the renovation once the scope is finalized—or require the homeowner and their agent to handle material procurement on their own—Curbio’s design team has a pre-selected portfolio of materials and a streamlined supply chain of vendors. Everything from appliances and cabinetry to fixtures and finishes are ready to go quickly, and Curbio kicks projects off within 10 days of contract signing.

Better Project Management

Even when renovation projects are on schedule, many Realtors® find themselves putting on their hard hats and becoming the de facto GC for their sellers: spending hours comparing quotes, selecting materials, and dropping by the site day after day to make sure everything is going according to plan.  

With Curbio, agents don’t have to worry about managing the project. We take care of everything. Our on-site project managers are full-time, salaried Curbio employees, so their full attention is on Curbio’s projects. Each has a minimum of 10 years of experience working within their local market.

Curbio’s project portal allows sellers and agents to see project progress in near real-time, no matter where they are. Curbio’s Project Manager uploads pictures and videos of the renovation and maintains a virtual timeline, so Realtors® and sellers know exactly what’s been completed, what’s happening next, and when the home will be ready to list.  

Curbio is the Pre-sale Renovation Expert

Curbio is the only renovation company that specializes in pre-sale renovation. We know what buyers are looking for, and we renovate to their tastes.   

While a typical GC would take direction from the agent or the homeowner and execute on their vision, Curbio studies local and national design trends to ensure our renovations have broad appeal. 

In fact, we’re the only renovation company that guarantees a return on investment.
