Renovate Now, Pay at Settlement


Renovate Now, Pay at Settlement

After Curbio

 

We’re excited to announce that Ebby Halliday Companies has entered a marketing partnership with Curbio, the fast-growing real estate technology company that specializes exclusively in pre-sale home renovations.

 

Curbio uses an array of proprietary technology and other tools to deliver on-demand pre-sale home renovation to Realtors and their sellers. Innovations such as same-day estimates, real-time video updates and virtual walk-throughs enable the company to complete projects faster than traditional home improvement companies, resulting in quicker sales and greater proceeds for sellers. Curbio defers payment for renovations until the home is sold, with no deposit or finance charges. Partnerships with major real estate brokerages like Ebby Halliday Companies support Curbio’s strategic decision to work only with homeowners who are represented by a licensed agent. Realtor referrals account for 100 percent of Curbio’s business.

 

“Ebby Halliday Companies takes pride in continuing to innovate, adding new tools and services that meet agent and market needs and ultimately provide a preeminent experience for our clients,” said Randall Graham, vice president and director of marketing, Ebby Halliday Companies. “Adding Curbio to our arsenal of sales tools is exactly the type of service that sets our agents and company apart. Having a partner like Curbio helps our clients decrease days on market and increase their proceeds at closing.”

“We’re excited to partner with Ebby Halliday Companies,” said Curbio VP of Marketing Rikki Rogers. “High-performing agents know that bringing real value to their clients is what makes them a true partner. It’s clear that Ebby Halliday understands the importance of equipping their agents with tools needed to provide a personalized experience ensuring their clients always receive the best service.”

 

The Ebby Halliday Companies include Dallas-based Ebby Halliday Realtors and Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate and Fort Worth-based Williams Trew. Ebby Halliday is the largest independently owned residential real estate company in Texas and ranked 12th in the United States by sales volume, according to the 2018 REAL Trends 500 report. Founded in 1945, the company has approximately 1,800 agents and staff in 33 offices spanning 12,000 square miles of North Texas. In 2018, the company participated in over 18,000 transactions with a sales volume of more than $7 billion. In 2018, Ebby Halliday was acquired by HomeServices of America, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate. HomeServices of America is the country’s-largest residential real estate company based on transaction sides, according to the 2018 REAL Trends 500.

North Texas Market Sizzles this Summer

While it’s been warm (well, actually quite hot) in North Texas, summer “officially” begins tomorrow. With sales prices up and not a large number of homes for sale, this summer offers homeowners ideal conditions to sell a home in Dallas-Fort Worth. Competition among buyers is heated and multiple offers are common.

 

Just how hot is the North Texas housing market? Consider this:

 

* The average days a home is on the market is only 47 days.

 

*  The median sales price is up 3.4%.

 

*  The number of homes sold is up 2.7%.

 

If you’re considering listing your home, this summer offers a great opportunity. To get started, discover just the right agent for your residential real estate needs at the award-winning, mobile-friendly ebby.com.

Perfect Pools for Summer


Ready to make a splash? Summer officially begins Friday, and there’s no better way to refresh than by taking a dip in your own backyard.
