Sellers' Case Study

The sellers were relocating to another state and knew they couldn't manage to oversee major work on the house.

When they engaged Laura Brookshire, their plan was to list the house as it was, and they thought a fair price would be around $400,000. Making less on the sale felt like a reasonable trade-off for not having to manage any renovations.

Laura introduced the sellers to the Compass Concierge service. This program lets Laura manage and oversee the preparation needed to polish up the house and get it ready for sale, with minimal involvement from the sellers. The sellers worked with Laura to select the things that would give them with the biggest bang for their improvement dollars, leading to a higher list price.

Laura used approved contractors to do the work. The Concierge service paid the contractors when the work was completed, and the sellers did not spend a penny before closing to complete the work. At closing, they repaid Compass Concierge Service for the exact amount spent -- no markup fees, no interest.

What would have happened without the upgrades? While we can't know for sure, we do know the sellers spent roughly $12,000 and the sales price was roughly $35,000 above the price they expected with little engagement of the sellers' time and no drain on their bank account.
