Preparing your home for sale is a critical, and sometimes overwhelming, task. But the truth is: that homebuyers are willing to pay more for updated, turn-key homes.
In 2019 the National Association of Realtors® reported that:
- For every $100 you invest in staging your home, your potential return is $400.
- 54% of homebuyers are willing to pay more for hardwood floors.
- 53% of sellers’ agents said that staging the property decreased its time on the market.
It may feel counterintuitive to invest in home improvements right before you sell, but rest assured – it can actually be incredibly beneficial. And that’s why Compass has created their service offering: Compass Concierge
. It’s a way for homeowners who are selling their home through a Compass agent to get fronted the cost of home improvement services that can help their home sell faster and for a higher price.
The funds clients receive from the Compass Concierge initiative are loaned with no interest and can be used to pay for more than 100 covered services, such as (but not limited to):
- Bathroom improvements
- Kitchen improvements
- Roof repair
- Cosmetic renovations
- Custom closets
- Moving & storage
- Electrical work
- Plumbing work
- Sewer inspections & remediations
- Carpet cleaning & replacement
