Potomac, MD.,—June 2, 2020—Curbio, the only company providing pre-sale concierge services for all Realtors® and their selling clients, has launched its “Pivot to Curbio” campaign and introduced no-contact renovations. Recognizing the unique challenges real estate agents face during the pandemic, Curbio is arming agents with a complete concierge service and new digital marketing materials to win listings, get homes ready for market, and help clients sell quickly for maximum profit – while deferring all costs until closing.
The Curbio initiative helps agents use the current slow-down to build a pipeline of listings ahead of what is expected to be an active summer selling season. Realtors® can take advantage of
- On-demand virtual seminars with timely insights, including “How to Attract Millennial Buyers During COVID-19” and “Pandemic Proofing Your Business”
- Free digital marketing resources such as co-brandable postcards, brochures, and explainer videos
- Free living accommodations for home sellers who prefer to vacate the property during Curbio’s on-site work. (Homeowners can opt for temporary housing or even get expense money to move in with friends or relatives.)
- A complimentary post-renovation virtual tour, which agents can use to market the listing online
“There’s overwhelming evidence that a summer surge is coming in real estate,” says Rikki Rogers, VP of Marketing at Curbio. “Buyers have been cooped up and dreaming of more space, and they’re coming back to the market looking for move-in ready properties. Sellers must be prepared to capture the pent-up demand that’s about to be unleashed, and Realtors® can help them do just that by partnering with Curbio. The Pivot to Curbio campaign gives agents everything they need to start that conversation—and win the listing.”
Curbio allows any Realtor® to immediately offer their own complete concierge service. Unlike other concierge options, Curbio is a comprehensive, single-partner solution that lets Realtors® focus on selling homes instead of managing renovation projects. By combining pre-sale expertise, materials and labor acquisition and on-site GC and project management, Curbio delivers quality, accountability and consistency on every project. All costs are deferred until closing with no interest or fees.
As the first renovation company that specializes in pre-sale renovation, from spruce-ups and staging through whole-home renovations, Curbio already streamlines many aspects of construction through their online app. The app was built specifically for Realtors® and selling homeowners, creating massive improvements in project completion times, customer experience, project communication and guaranteed ROI. Everything from the initial estimate and materials procurement to labor scheduling and project management happens within Curbio’s proprietary online platform.
Curbio has developed deep expertise in maximizing profit through pre-sale home improvement, using data from nearly 1,000 projects to curate a portfolio of services and materials proven to increase home value and attract buyers. Despite the pandemic, Curbio’s renovations continue to produce substantial profit gains and reduce days on market for homeowners. Homes renovated by Curbio averaged 82% fewer days on market, going under contract in 11 days in April, compared to the national average of 62 days.
Since Curbio only works with homeowners who are represented by a real estate agent, 100% of its business is generated by agents who introduce Curbio to their prospects or clients, usually during the listing presentation. Curbio formally collects Realtor® satisfaction scores on every project and has achieved the highest Realtor® satisfaction rates in the renovation industry.
