Home-flipping startup Curbio expands to Boston

Seven more metros to come

Tech-enabled renovation company Curbio has been busy this year.

The company announced this week it is expanding to Boston, adding to its already lengthy list of metros it serves.

In October, the company promised it would expand into Boston as well as Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Charlotte within the following months.

Curbio already serves Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Phoenix and the Florida metro areas of Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

The company refers to itself as a renovation partner in the remodeling mix. By using software to essentially flip a house, Curbio ensures the renovation process is quick and cost-effective. Clients don’t have to pay the service until the sale on their house closes.

Curbio provides project management, material selection and renovation choices designed to maximize profits for the seller. The company also keeps homeowners informed throughout the process with updates, photos and videos.

Curbio claims they can help customers complete housing projects 60% faster.

Earlier this year, Curbio raised $7 million in funding and partnered with Door.com, both to fuel its expansion. Door.com is similar to Curbio in the sense that customers have 24/7 access to their online portal to view listing performance, buyer feedback, their agent’s analysis and offer details on the website.
