Naples, FL – January 28, 2019 – Southwest Florida sellers desiring to prepare their home for marketing has a new home-selling service created to help them maximize their home’s sales value and achieve a faster sale.

Created by Compass, a national real estate technology company, the newly-launched Compass Concierge is a single source to provide a customized plan for updating and staging homes for prospective buyers. Real Estate developer Joe Belz is a Compass founding agent in Naples. He has tapped into his relationships with area vendors to help create this single source for professional specialties and simplify this process for the seller.

Home sellers will benefit from Compass’s market expertise and financial strength, with Compass Agents providing assessments of what improvements would be most beneficial to the sale.  Following a consultation with a Compass agent and the seller’s approval of their plan, sellers will select which investments they’d like to make in their home.

Compass Concierge will then engage professionals on their behalf to provide the approved cosmetic improvements. The company will cover upfront costs associated with the improvements at no markup and will be compensated at the time of the home’s closing.

By taking advantage of the company’s market expertise and financial strength, an affiliation with Compass Concierge will minimize the seller’s short-term financial burden while maximizing the odds of an improved sales price.

Home preparation services can include deep cleaning, painting, carpentry, decluttering, and landscaping as well as staging of the home with quality furnishings to add greater purchase appeal to the potential buyer.

According to Belz, “One of our Naples customers had her home on the market for six months with no offers. We took it off the market, did some painting, decluttering and staging – adding some new furnishings – and put it back on the market. She had multiple offers within two weeks. Her Compass Concierge investment of $55,000 resulted in an additional $300,000 upon the sale of the home.”

Belz also spearheaded an exclusive partnership with Stage Right, a new staging venture by interior design and furnishings powerhouse Clive Daniel Home, to fulfill the need for the area’s untapped market. Working in conjunction with Compass Agents, interior designers from Clive Daniel Home will provide assessments concerning furnishings, paint colors and accessories that would be most beneficial to the sale of the home.

“One thing everyone can agree on,” said Daniel Lubner, President and CEO of Clive Daniel Home, “is that a beautifully furnished home always sells faster and at a higher price. By joining forces with Compass Concierge, our Stage Right program will provide an effective solution for both sellers and buyers. The Compass Concierge program is exactly what the Naples market needs right now.

Stage Right has immediate access to a huge selection of luxury furnishings and can often measure, design and furnish a home within two weeks. During this setup phase, Compass will promote the home within its online Coming Soon program, generating buyer interest before the home is ready to be syndicated on the worldwide web.

Clive Daniel Home is located on U.S. 41 in Naples with a second store in Boca Raton, Florida. The interior design and fine furnishings company has won over 300 awards for excellence in creative design since its opening in 2011.

With offices in over 20 major U.S. cities – including Chicago, Boston, and New York City – Compass is building the first modern real estate platform, pairing the industry’s top talent with technology to make the search and sell experience intelligent and seamless.
