A seasoned realtor knows that a home listed for sale "as-is" rarely elicits an optimum price, and that making renovations before the home is listed is often a financial stretch for the homeowner. Local company MaxSalePrice is reimagining this type of home improvement by partnering with realtors to make pre-sale renovations a reality for every homeowner.
Launched last year, MaxSalePrice aims to help agents and their clients get homes ready for market with no upfront payment required. The company uses cutting edge technology to give a free virtual estimate and then leverages the agent’s market expertise about what buyers are looking for to make smart, efficient renovations in three to six weeks. The homeowners don’t pay for the work until the house is sold. MaxSalePrice calls this their “Fix Now, Pay When You Sell” program.
Last year, Deidre Paige of Keller Williams listed a single-family home in DC for $475,000 in as-is condition. The homeowners wanted to sell the home quickly, but didn’t have the cash to make any updates. Paige reduced the price to $450,000, but the home still sat on the market for five months, never receiving an offer over $400,000. That’s when Paige took the house off the market and contacted MaxSalePrice. The company did $50,000 worth of renovations in about six weeks. When the house was put back on the market, it sold at the full list price of $520,000 in one day.
“Working with MaxSalePrice was a pleasure from beginning to end,” says Paige.
There are no additional finance charges or fees for MaxSalePrice’s work. As a licensed and insured general contractor serving DC, Maryland and Virginia, the company is experienced in every aspect of home renovation: kitchens, bathrooms, painting, roofing, flooring, appliances, HVAC, landscaping, window and door replacement and more.
