Curbio Inc., a tech-enabled renovation company that's transforming the way homeowners prepare their homes for sale, continues its national expansion by launching in the San Antonio market. Other markets served include Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, the District of Columbia and surrounding suburbs of Maryland and Virginia, Baltimore, Philadelphia/Southern New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, Southern Florida, Orlando, Tampa and Phoenix.
As one of the only turnkey pre-sale renovation solutions on the market today, Curbio lets home sellers unlock the full profit potential of their properties. Although renovated homes sell faster and generate more profit, many sellers opt out of renovations because of the time commitment and stress that accompany typical home renovation projects. Likewise, real estate agents are often reluctant to suggest renovations that might delay time to market and require their oversight. Curbio brings together the people, process, technology, and payment terms to eliminate these challenges. The company not only defers all payment until settlement, with no fees or finance charges, but also offers a fast and stress-free renovation experience for real estate agents and their sellers.
Unlike the financing options some real estate brokerages now offer for pre-sale home improvements, Curbio handles the renovation itself and is the licensed and insured general contractor on every project it completes. The company specializes in renovations that increase sale price, and its technology platform accelerates the entire renovation process – from the initial estimate to the materials acquisition and project management phases. As a result, Curbio completes projects about 60 percent faster than the average contractor.
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Rick Rudman, said:
"Delaying payment until closing is the easy part.
"The difficult part—and the part that will truly deliver real value to homeowners – is transforming the renovation process to align with the needs of home sellers. We've built a team with the pre-sale renovation expertise required to actually increase the value of the home. And agents love that Curbio takes care of everything from beginning to end, always focused on quality, speed-to-market and return-on-investment."
Curbio employs highly rated, full-time general contractors to manage each project, allowing Curbio to control the entire renovation process and deliver the same high-quality customer experience across its markets. Its on-the-ground Project Managers oversee the renovation, including ordering materials, hiring subcontractors, and monitoring project progress. They communicate with real-time photo, text, and video updates to homeowners and agents via the Curbio app.
The Curbio platform also includes a proprietary database of pricing data that eliminates the guess work inherent in contractor bids.
"Most contractors set pricing on the fly, based on gut feeling, homeowner budget, or even how busy they are that month," said Rudman. "If homeowners get three proposals, they often come in with three wildly different prices. With Curbio, all customers get the same fair pricing, based on national pricing data from similar projects, adjusted for local markets."
Curbio has become a trusted partner for residential real estate agents within its areas of operation. The company has worked with major real estate brokerages in the US including BHHS Ebby Halliday, BHGRE Gary Greene, JPAR Houston - The Sears Group, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Fox & Roach and PenFed Realty.
