What are home-buyers looking for?

1. House renovation on a budget. Buyers usually don't have the capital for improvements after they purchase a house. However, they can use their mortgage loan to afford a house that is already improved. We front all costs of the renovation, so you don't have to pay out-of-pocket and the buyer can roll it into their mortgage loan.

2. How to raise the value of my home. Most people don't have contractor/vendor relationships and finding a team for the first time is difficult. We have those relationships built with vendors and contractors you can trust.

3. Many times, people don't have the time or project management skills to make improvements themselves. We have a team dedicated to managing the renovation projects and communicating with the vendors/contractors. No headache for you!

4. Buyers often have to carry two mortgages while they make the improvements. Buyers often have to live in their current house while the renovations are being completed. It can be hard to balance two mortgages and many don't have the option to. Buying a home that's ready to move in is easier for these buyers.
