Refreshes

Refreshes

Real estate agents know that in any market, the homes that sell the quickest are updated and move-in-ready. While most homes won’t require a complete remodel, many could benefit from a quick refresh to appeal to modern homebuyers before hitting the market. Refreshes are efficient, cost-effective ways to help a home sell faster and for top dollar.

The benefits of pre-listing refreshes

Normal wear and tear and changes in design trends leave most homes needing a refresh before hitting the market. For refreshes, we work to broaden a home’s appeal by making cosmetic updates that pull modern design elements into the existing floorplan of a home.

From replacing countertops and refinishing cabinets in your kitchen to painting and installing new flooring throughout the home, Curbio’s got you covered with efficient refreshes that help you sell a home faster and for more.  Curbio’s refreshes include projects that are more extensive than repairs and touch-ups, but typically do not require any permits, making them a great option for sellers looking to move quickly.

Below are some of the individual services that might be involved in a refresh:

  • Cabinet refinishing
  • Flooring updates
  • Countertop replacements
  • Backsplash installation
  • Tile reglazing
  • Painting
  • Wallpaper removal
  • Landscaping
  • Any necessary repairs
