Roomy Pittsburgh Refresh

Pre-listing home improvements from top to bottom helped Howard Hanna agent, Deanna Marra, meet the needs of post-pandemic buyers.

Roomy Pittsburgh Refresh

Howard Hanna real estate agent, Deanna Marra, worked with Curbio to get her listing move-in ready for today’s buyer. It was obvious that we needed to address deferred maintenance and do some deep cleaning inside and out. But we didn’t stop there. To increase the listing’s appeal and achieve a higher price point, we applied a fresh coat of paint throughout, installed carpet on the stairs and in the attic, removed the linoleum flooring in the basement kitchenette, and installed luxury vinyl tile throughout the basement. We finalized the listing with new light fixtures, hardware, and a modern backsplash!

Finishing the large basement and attic spaces was brilliant because as many home buyers anticipate working from home both short and long term, they’re looking for homes with extra space—specifically, flexible space that can function as an in-home gym or office. The project took 6 weeks, and without Curbio, Deanna and her sellers would have had to source and manage a variety of contractors for flooring, deep-cleaning, carpentry, painting, etc.—and the project would have inevitably taken longer as a result.
