Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA, United States, 2013/07/16 - homecoin saves people thousands in real estate transactions by enabling home buyers and sellers to represent themselves - homecoin.com.
homecoin has released the beta version of their namesake website. homecoin (beta) includes innovations to their already cutting edge, cloud-based platform which allows California home sellers and buyers the ability to complete real estate transactions with or without the use of real estate agents. New features of the homecoin real estate platform include the ability for buyers to submit offers on nearly any home - thereby allowing the buyer to have more competitive offers and to capture the cost savings of not having agent representation.
"Representing yourself in selling or buying a home can be the greatest return on investment activity of your lifetime." stated homecoin CEO Jonathan Minerick, adding "homecoin (beta) has the most powerful tools available for buying or selling without an agent. We also provide the ability for self-represented sellers and buyers to work with counterparty agents and we make it easier than ever before."
The secret to the homecoin real estate transaction platform is their fully integrated real estate contracts and disclosures, which gives the homecoin web application the unique ability to pull obligations and deadlines from a purchase contract to show buyers and sellers each parties obligations, how much time remains for each obligation, and the current status of all obligations. "The transparency into real estate transactions that homecoin provides is unmatched." said Minerick,"Buyers and sellers have been in the dark for too long on their real estate transactions and understanding how they work, those days are over starting now."
homecoin has also expanded its popular service of placing self-represented seller homes on the MLS so it now covers over 90% of the homes in California, while maintaining its lowest price guarantee. In addition to the marketing tools available to self-represented home sellers on homecoin.com (which reach > 95% of buyers), homecoin has updated its pricing structure to allow buyers and sellers to avoid paying anything to homecoin.com unless their transaction closes. "We don't want to get paid unless our customers are successful." said Minerick.
When asked how homecoin compares to traditional real estate agents and other for sale by owner solutions available, Minerick stated "The difference is similar to comparing tax preparers (agents) to a how-to book on doing your taxes (for sale by owner websites) to TurboTax® (homecoin). In short, we are faster, more accurate, more transparent, and a fraction of the cost."
"We aim to make real estate the most transparent and trusted industry in America", said Minerick, adding "We firmly believe that the beta release of homecoin.com provides home sellers and buyers the most powerful real estate transaction tools anywhere, even more so than what is available to real estate professionals. It truly is a giant leap forward for the real estate industry."
