Compass offers an interest-free, no-fee loan of up to $40,000 for sellers to maximize the resale value of their home. This can be used for most anything you deem necessary. The loan is paid-off through escrow, so out-of-pocket cash is not required.

First impressions mean everything. Online pictures and virtual tours drive in-person showings, which in-turn drives the number of offers and the offer price. This typically includes professional staging, fresh paint, new floor coverings, a deep cleaning and landscaping tune-ups.

Same living room before professional staging. Staging is typically in the $2,000 to $3,000 price range. Professional stagers know how to appeal to the broadest audience, even if it is not your personal tastes.

Kitchens are a big deal. This is the most used room in the house and shows the most wear and tear. The staging of this kitchen consisted mostly of painting the cabinets and replacing the dishwasher with matching stainless steel.

Dark wood-stained cabinets are not that attractive to prospective buyers. Lighter and designer colors brighten up a kitchen.

A new vanity in the bathroom can be high impact at minimal cost and effort. This bathroom looks like it jumped in time from the 1970’s to today.

I’m so over those round-bulb lights over the mirror look. Not to mention the Corian countertop.

Deferred maintenance items can also be addressed. Need a new roof? Need to replace a section of fence. Repair dry rot in house siding or roof eves. Lastly, pest and home inspections are expected in our market and will identify repair items to consider. Buyers use these items to rationalize a lower price or decide to not submit an offer.

This interest-free, no hidden fee, loan is available for up to 5% of the list price, 50% of home equity, with a max of $40,000 (max list price of $4M). A simple online application makes it easy to obtain. You get a debit card that you can use as you please. The loan is paid-off out of escrow, so saves you from using your own money.
