Cannon Christian ’07 writes that he founded a booming business in San Diego called Renovation Realty, a one-stop-shop approach to real estate and renovation that adds value to clients’ homes with zero out-of-pocket costs to the homeowners. As both a full-service residential renovation contractor and real estate brokerage, the company adds monetary value to customer homes by using its own capital to renovate the property before placing it on the market for sale as the listing brokerage. Renovation Realty is reimbursed for its services when it is paid after the sale of the property through escrow. The homeowner never incurs any out of pocket costs in the renovation and sale of the property.
