  • The money side ended up being the easiest problem to solve for people who want to renovate before putting their home on the market.
  • Most contractors don’t really know how to do estimates. It can take 6-8 weeks just to get a proposal out of people and it may not be accurate.
  • One problem with pre-sale renovation is figuring out what needs to be designed.
  • Another problem is the fog of renovation. You never know what’s going on.

  • Most of their pricing will be below the national average.
  • Curbio will give you fair pricing and a process that will get you from your first phone call to a fixed-price proposal in about five days.
  • Realtors and their clients get the same pricing every time.
  • They have pre-curated all of the materials based on what’s popular today in home sales.
  • Their promise to the homeowner is to make that client money on the sale of their home.
  • Software is a cool part of this process because every step of the project is available to the realtor, the homeowner, and the project manager, so you never have to chase anyone down.
