The Windermere Ready Program

There’s no second chance for the perfect first impression. That statement could not be more true when preparing your home for sale. Making small improvements, whether it’s a cosmetic upgrade in the kitchen, a full bathroom remodel or setting up a deep cleaning service, these small investments can lead to a much larger profit. The Windermere Ready program allows every home seller to make the best first impression by providing a concierge-level service that readies your home to hit the market. The Windermere Ready program can provide up to $100,000 to mitigate any expenses incurred with NO upfront cost. 



We’ll first start with a one-on-one consultation and walk through your home to assess any potential updates or repairs. Working with your schedule and timeline, I’ll help you determine the improvements that will yield the biggest return. Ultimately, the homeowner decides what work will be done to the home, but I am here to provide as much information and knowledge I can.

Impactful Updates:

Even simple changes can make a huge difference. Here is a list of the most valuable updates: 

  • Landscaping
  • Interior/Exterior Painting
  • Floor Repair/Refinishing
  • Carpet Cleaning/Replacement
  • Window Washing
  • Professional Deep Cleaning
  • Fixture Repairs or Replacement
  • Cosmetic Updates

Personalized Plan:

Once you decide on your top projects and improvements, I’ll introduce you to my preferred local contractors and service providers. I’ll then schedule out all the work and services needed while working around your schedule. 


Once your home is ready to be listed on the market, we will have it professionally staged. Staging boosts the appeal for buyers and will highlight the features of your home. According to, staged homes statistically sell 87% faster than non-staged homes and net 17% more.

What Fees or Interest Are Charged and How? 

Once you sell your home, you pay the Windermere Ready program back from the proceeds of the sale at the time of closing. The interest on the loan is 4% of what’s borrowed. There is a $218 recording fee that is due at closing as well. Sellers will not be charged a recording or re-conveyance fee if the loan is under $50,000. Windermere will absorb the credit report check. The loan is for 6 months, interest free. 

When Can I Get Started?

We can provide the funds as quickly as up to 3-business days after your application for the program is accepted. 


Selling your home can be overwhelming. We’re here to take the stress off of you and together we’ll set your home up for selling success.
