Investing in physical improvements of a home can increase its sale price dramatically, but can be costly depending on the service. With the Compass Concierge Program, Compass will pay the upfront cost of select services that can increase your home’s value. From deep- cleaning to cosmetic renovations, we’ll elevate your home’s appeal and create a tailored plan to maximize its potential on the market. When your home sells, the cost (and nothing more) will be added to the commission. Other services covered by Compass include organizing, decluttering, and landscaping.
