How To Pay For A Renovation After You Sell Your Home

Fixing up your home before you put it on the market can help your home sell quickly and for top dollar. However, not everyone has the funds readily available to make upgrades. What if we told you that you could pay for those upgrades AFTER you sell your home? The Keller Williams Concierge Program could be the solution you’re looking for. Watch our latest webinar, How to Pay for a Renovation After You Sell Your Home, to find out if our program is right for you!

When you begin the process of selling your home, you may realize some projects and improvements can help you get top dollar — if you only have the money to do them. This includes projects like the kitchen remodel that was too expensive, or the redecorating you never got around to. Not all improvements will actually increase your selling price more than what you’ll spend, but some projects really make financial sense if you’re able to do them. And while some basic updates can be tackled on your own, many are better left to the professionals. So Keller Williams came up with a solution for you: KW Concierge.

How the Concierge Program Works

Keller Williams Coastal Properties in Long Beach has partnered with Zoom Casa to create KW Concierge, a service that helps our clients prepare their homes for the market. Services can include remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, painting, deep cleaning, landscaping, staging, decluttering, and more. Improvements can be major or minor, depending on what your home needs.

The best part? None of the money is paid upfront. 100% of the cost is deferred until closing. We know that sellers sometimes need to sell their homes no matter what. And some homes could use a little TLC in order to maximize the bottom line. If getting top dollar is a goal of yours but you don’t have money in the bank to make needed improvements, then KW Concierge may be worth looking into.

Concierge Program Success Story: 2411 Granada Avenue, Long Beach CA

The KW Concierge team assisted Robert Barry, a Shannon Jones Team client, with preparing an Artcraft Manor home in Long Beach for sale. The work included repairs, paint, flooring, and staging, creating a charming space with plenty of appeal for buyers. The result was a charming space with plenty of appeal for potential buyers. The home went into escrow in less than three weeks!
“I am truly grateful to Shannon and Brad for being able to offer Zoom Casa,” said Barry. “They were able to help me when cash flow was prohibitive. They were friendly and professional. The prices (of Zoom Casa improvements) were very reasonable. I truly feel that the service helped us sell our home faster and for a much higher value than if we were not able to use the service. A true life saver!”

Concierge Program Success Story: 750 Temple Avenue, Long Beach CA

Another client of The Shannon Jones Team also used Zoom Casa to make improvements to a home in the Rose Park Historic District in Long Beach, CA.  A classic Spanish-style home with charming original details, 750 Temple Avenue had been a rental for many years and when the last tenants moved out, it was not looking its best.  It needed work, inside and out, in order to show to its best potential.

The home got a fresh coat of paint, the floors were refinished, the kitchen was updated, and landscaping was refreshed, among other improvements. And although the kitchen was updated, care was taken to retain the original, vintage flair of the home. Buyers looking for homes in historical districts often treasure the original details of homes like this one so it’s important that any update be sensitive to that. Staging was also done through the KW Concierge program using a simple, elegant style with a blend of modern and vintage pieces, allowing the details of the home to be the star.

After the renovation and staging, 750 Temple sold quickly with multiple offers in the first week! Thanks to KW Concierge, it was easy for buyers to quickly fell in love with the home and envision themselves living there.
