Setting the Stage: NAR REALTOR Benefits® Partners That Tackle Clutter and Repairs

Home makeover shows don’t lie: even off the screen, the “After” home always sells faster and higher than the “Before”! If you’re sitting on listings this spring that could use a little TLC before going to market, we’ve rounded up three NAR REALTOR Benefits® partners that specialize in breathing new life into lackluster homes through clutter removal, renovations, and staging.

Follow these three steps below to get your sellers more money in their pockets at closing.

Step One: Tackle Unwanted Clutter With 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

If your listing is bursting at the seams with outdated furniture, rusty lawn equipment, and their great-aunt-twice-removed's novelty salad bowl collection – it might be time to arrange for some clutter removal. With services for projects ranging from simple to overwhelming, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? creates space and peace of mind so that you can get market ready. Setting up junk removal couldn’t be easier. First, book a pickup before, during, or after a move using program code NAR50. 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s friendly, uniformed truck team will call you 15-30 minutes before your scheduled 2-hour appointment window to let you know exactly when to expect them. When they arrive, they’ll look at the items you want removed and provide you with an up-front all-inclusive price. Then they’ll remove your items and sweep up the area, collecting payment once the job is complete.

Step Two: Get Online Repair Estimates and Full Renovation Services Through Bosscat

Once the junk is cleared out, take the opportunity to survey the “bones” of your listing and determine what repairs or renovations need to be made before you go to market. NAR members can get free online repair estimates through Bosscat Home Services, a real estate data platform that provides prioritized online repair estimates and full-scale repair, renovation, and maintenance services. Just head to Bosscat’s NAR member landing page and upload a home inspection PDF to get your free quote emailed to you within one business day. Once you receive your quote, members also receive 5% off the company’s turnkey repair and renovation services, making it a one-stop shop for getting any listing market-ready.

Whether you’re just looking to freshen up your curb appeal or do a major renovation on a historic property, this member benefit was specially designed to move your project quickly from start to finish.

Step Three: Stage, Style, and Sell With Curbio

Curbio not only offers free repair estimates for NAR members who upload a home inspection PDF online, they also provide full-service refreshes and remodels to put the finishing touches on a listing and give it that final “wow” factor. Update painting, lighting and hardware, install fresh backsplashes and flooring, and even touch up the yard with cleaning and landscaping. Curbio has partnered with NAR REALTOR Benefits® to ensure that members connect with a dedicated team who will ensure every project is completed on time, on quality, and on budget.

The best part? Your sellers won’t owe a dime until the home sells. 100% of project costs are deferred until closing with no deposit, progress payments, or interest. Start by downloading the Curbio Build Your Own Estimate app for free repair estimates and a free digital floorplan once your project has begun. They’ll begin right away, so that your sellers can close and move out in no time at all!
