A real estate broker who helps the seller renovate?Just curious to see if other REAs have heard of this brokerage approach, or if other potential sellers are aware of similar business models in their area.Essentially, the seller and brokerage agree on renovations and price as part of the listing agreement. The brokerage then performs the renovations (presumably, at an "in house" price) and re-coups the costs from the eventual sale. Inherent to this model is that the renovated house sells for a sufficiently higher price to cover the cost of the renovations.November 30 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
