Residential Sector

We’ve been building and remodeling homes for over 20 years. We’ve dealt with hundreds of homeowners and looked at thousands of blueprints. Our skilled workers have stressed over millions of details. All to one end: crafting the perfect home. And based on the customer feedback we’ve received, it appears we’ve done our job.

Cheap. Fast. Good.

It’s the trifecta everyone wants, and we work fastidiously to deliver it. Over the years, we’ve developed forceful purchasing methods. When combined with pinpoint-precise project management, it gives us the ability to control costs and scheduling and allow our experienced craftspeople to provide excellent turnkey results.

Improve It to Move It

Most residential real estate transactions involve some physical improvements to the property. In fact, 3 out of 4 homeowners spend over $25,000 in upgrades to increase their selling price and sell faster.

Furthermore, buyers often insist on an upgrade allowance for a sub-standard property—a potential selling hassle. With the scarcity of reliable contractors, issues in the supply chain that make materials hard to source, predictable installation snags, and the intricacies of the sales process, the potential for major stress is high.

And we haven’t mentioned money yet. Improvements can easily start at $20,000-$30,000—out of your own pocket—before the house is even listed.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. The good news is that we know buyers pay more and demand less if a house is up-to-date and looking good.

Renovations Increase Value...

Yes, it’s good news and a fact you can rely on: Homebuyers are drawn to shiny, updated kitchens and bathrooms. Just keep in mind that renovations should survive market changes as well as please a variety of tastes. So, what projects add the most value to a home?

...but Renovations Cost Money

You must spend money to make money, right? Unfortunately, there’s no escaping it. However, Finishes ETC can help you increase the value of your home and sell it for more, while making sure you pay no money out-of-pocket. How? Just list your home through Finishes Brokerage Homes, and we’ll delay getting paid for any renovation work until you close on the sale of your house. It’s a win-win.

People First

Most residential real estate deals have a 6% commission structure, divided 50/50 between the selling and buying agents. At Finishes Brokerage Homes, we offer an alternative: our People First Reduced Commission Program, ™ a discounted commission for either buyers or sellers whenever Finishes Brokerage Homes is the agent of record to at least one party.
