To maximize the return of a renovation investment, homeowners need to understand what buyers in their market are looking for and then select materials, appliances, paint colors, and finishes that will have broad appeal. Quality, cost, and availability must also be considered. But few sellers have the expertise – or patience – to know which materials will maximize value. ROI is doomed from the start.
Curbio’s comprehensive design-build services transform this process. Our Production and Materials Management team studies trends and curates a custom supply chain of the best materials based on local buyers’ preferences. By renovating according to buyers’ tastes, we expand the pool of potential buyers and drive up the sale price of the home.
Data-driven cost control
Many contractors lack a basic system for setting pricing, relying instead on perceived homeowner budget or even how busy they are that month. This is why homeowners often get three proposals that come with very different prices.
Curbio’s technology platform includes a proprietary database of data eliminates the typical guess work inherent in contractor bids. All customers get the same fair pricing, based on national pricing data from similar projects that’s adjusted for local markets. Curbio projects will typically come in 20% below the regional average on price.
The traditional materials procurement can also add cost, since most contractors purchase appliances, paint, etc. at retail prices with a nominal discount, or require sellers to purchase materials on their own. The cost and quality are limited by what’s immediately available at the local big box store.
Because Curbio is a national company completing hundreds of projects at a time, we have partnerships with highly regarded national manufacturers. This allows us to drive down costs and ensure availability, without sacrificing quality. Curbio’s onsite project manager handles all materials procurement, eliminating costly delays.
