Let Renovation Realty Be Your Guide
There are tasks and timelines to consider, as well as the personal property and then the preparation, marketing and successful sale of the home. As the executor of the home, we realize that it is crucial to work with a probate expert. Renovation Realty is a team that has the experience and resources to guide you through all of the tasks until the sale of the home.
I was in a financial bind and had to sell my house. Maximizing the amount of money I was to receive from the sale was critical. I was attracted to the Renovation Realty concept. They dramatically transformed my old house into a beautiful model home in a short period of time. They received 11 offers on the house within 2 days of appearing on the market! All of those offers were over the list price!
When the time came to sell our parents' home, it seemed an overwhelming task. The house needed a lot of attention. The job was more than we could handle Renovation Realty made an impossible task become an amazing reality. Within 3 months the house was completely redone, sold after the first open house, and escrow closed in a timely fashion!
The Renovation Realty business model is a home seller’s dream. Where else can a cash-strapped homeowner find a partner, who has the financial resources to front the money, design and construction expertise to complete full-scale renovations, and then operate a full-service realty operation with a home seller's profit in mind.
I used Steve and his crew to do some basic upgrades and work before I put my house on the market. With great execution and market research, once we hit the market, we received offers over asking price within 6 days. I would highly recommend using Renovation Realty.
It was a difficult time for our family and selling our home of 37 years was a decision we didn't take lightly. They transformed our well-worn home into a bright new place. We closed in under 30 days at 20K over asking price.
If you’re reading their business model and wondering, what’s the catch? There is none! The entire team at Renovation Realty was professional, straight-forward, and accommodating throughout the renovation and sale of my home. Selling your house is already tough enough-they made it as PAINLESS as possible.
Keith and Griffin were instrumental in advising us what renovations would give us top dollar for our home and then carrying out those renovations in a timely and professional manner. We received multiple offers for our home. We know that this only happened because of Renovation Realty.”
