“When I first heard about Curbio, I was just interested in learning more. I thought it was a great solution for a lot of homes being put on the market that aren’t really ready. A lot of sellers don’t want to or don’t have money to put into improvements. Curbio is an obvious solution for situations like these.”
Background on the Project
We asked Ria about the property and the homeowners’ situation.
“The property was 35 years old and had not been updated at all. Initially, we wanted to find a buyer who had the vision to update it to fit their preferences, but because of the extensive updates it needed, buyers couldn’t see past the current state. Clients who are interested in high-end homes are generally more particular about what they’re looking for, and buyers coming through couldn’t get past the 1980s style gold leaf and plush, wall-to-wall carpeting.
We knew we needed to make updates, but since the home was part of an estate, they didn’t want to front the cost of renovations. Because of the situation, Curbio was a very appealing solution.”
