Many people could sell their home or rental property for more money if it was fixed up and made to look better. Sometimes this might mean painting, flooring, outdoor cleanup and fixup, smaller kitchen or bathroom upgrades, etc. The challenge is that many people do not have the cash to come out of pocket for these repairs, even though they know it would bring a higher price fixed up.
Coldwell Banker Southern Realty hopes to help with this through its RealVitalize program.
When you list your property for sale with one of the Coldwell Banker professionals, they will advance the funds you need to do the fixup and repairs. Not only do they advance the funds to you, but they also do not charge any interest or fees for the money advanced. You simply agree to repay them when the property is sold and closed.
Sound too good to be true?
They say there is no “catch.” The program is not designed for major repairs like foundations or complete re-roofing, but most other repairs and fixups qualify.
The only requirement for them to advance you the funds is to have the property listed with Coldwell Banker Southern Realty. The work is done by an Angie (formerly Angies List) contractor. If you have your own contractor, they can likely get them on the list as well.
According to a recent press release, Coldwell Banker has done this for many clients and they have been able, in some cases, to sell their property for tens of thousands of dollars more being fixed up.
