Real Estate

WHAT IS COLDWELL BANKER REALVITALIZE PROGRAM 

Coldwell Banker covers the upfront costs of home improvements and repairs to prep your seller's home for sale
▪ Work with your dedicated RealVitalize project consultant, provided by HomeAdvisor, to identify vendors, schedule
work, and handle payments
ENROLL IN REALVITALIZE1
▪ First, enroll your listing using the RealVitalize Desk Tile App by uploading the seller-signed
Participation Agreement
▪ Receive application approval within 1-3 days - note that there is no credit check required or lien
placed on the property as part of the application
SCHEDULE THE PROJECT
▪ After being approved, you can reach out to your dedicated HomeAdvisor Project Consultant (PC) who
will help understand what work needs completed (they will also reach out within 1-2 days of being
approved)
▪ Review the scope of work with your seller to ensure it’s specific and detailed, covering exactly what
work needs completed on the home.
▪ Your PC will find vendors and schedule walkthroughs that are convenient for you and your seller.
Typically one service provider is sourced per job. (most listings have a visit scheduled within 1 week)
▪ Once the walkthrough is complete, your PC will share the estimate with you and your client. If the
quote is accepted, the PC will schedule work to begin!
WORK GETS COMPLETED
▪ Your service provider will complete the work on the listing, according to your or your seller’s
schedule. Note, someone must be onsite for entry.
▪ The PC will handle all payments with vendors to make sure that they are paid a % upfront to begin
work and will check in along the way to ensure work is progressing
▪ Once work is complete, your PC will confirm that your seller is satisfied with the quality before
releasing the final payment to the contractor
ENJOY THE SALE
▪ You let us know when the home is under contract and at closing, the funds agreed to will be removed
from the settlement proceeds! (no interest, no fees – just the money for the services provided)
