Real estate brokerage Door.com and real estate technology company Curbio have announced a partnership that the companies claim will make it easier for homeowners to sell their home for more money.
Door.com allows sellers to list, market and sell their home for a flat fee of $5,000. The company says that this has flat fee model has helped customers save a total of $14.5 million in real estate fees since 2015. Door launched in 2016 in Dallas, and has since expanded to other parts of Texas, along with Colorado, California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee.
Curbio, meanwhile, offers home renovation services to homeowners in advance of them selling their home. The company provides project management, material selection and renovation choices designed to maximize profits for the seller. Homeowners are informed throughout the process with updates, photos and videos. Curbio also doesn’t charge clients until the end of the renovation process. According to Curbio, they can help customers complete housing projects 60% faster.
Curbio currently operates in the metro areas of Washington D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, Houston, and Phoenix, and plans to expand to Chicago, Tampa, and Miami by the end of this year.
