Seattle has welcomed yet another proptech startup.

This time it’s Curbio, which bills itself as the “only turnkey pre-sale renovation technology company on the market.”

The startup is a licensed general contractor that partners with realtors to renovate houses that homeowners are preparing to sell. It handles the entire renovation process from start to finish, and sellers don’t have to pay until the home sale closes.

Curbio is live in 17 markets, and its entrance to Seattle marks its first West Coast expansion. The company will hire local project managers in Seattle and work with local agents and subcontractors. It plans to begin service in San Francisco, Portland and Los Angeles soon.

Curbio claims its technology platform lets it complete renovation projects 60 percent faster than other contractors. The technology streamlines major parts of the process, including creating an estimate, acquiring materials and managing the project.

Rikki Rogers, Vice President of Marketing, said:

“This is a completely new approach to pre-sale home renovations, which traditionally put the burden on real estate agents and homeowners to manage projects, select materials and push subcontractors to meet deadlines."
