Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOULDER, Colo. - Aug 01, 2017 - Technology has impacted the real estate industry and not always in the most positive ways for agents and for homeowners. New “instant offers” technology by big corporations like Redfin and Opendoor can get a property sold quickly but often with hidden fees and low-offers that certainly doesn’t keep the seller’s best interests at the forefront. Boulder-based SQFTx, Inc. (pronounced Square Feet) has seen the trend in innovative tech and is about to launch a new real estate technology app that is agent-centric and good for both buyers and sellers.
The app will launch on Aug. 7 in Nashville, Tennessee with its first company-branded (white label) version of the platform with Tennessee’s largest brokerages. SQFT also has a number of firms lined up for launch around the country by the end of the year. With this new app, for the first time ever, real estate professionals will now have one tool to manage their business and provide a unique private view for their clients. Clients are empowered through hands on control and involvement in their personal sales process. The versatile platform can be modeled for transitional full-service brokerage companies, flat fee/discount brokerages and rentals.
“The real estate technology app is the first fully transactional platform to serve and support the entire real estate sales process from beginning to end,” says James Simpson, CEO of SQFTx. “This really is something new and exciting for real estate agents. Many of these ‘instant offer’ platforms in the marketplace today are really investors using limited technology platforms to buy homes at a discount. These platforms have not only upset the realtor community, but also sellers and buyers who get raked over the coals with lowball offers and hidden extra fees.”
This new technology is something else entirely. It’s about putting the control in the hands of the agents and empowering their clients. Agents, sellers and buyers list and negotiate in the app, and the paperwork is created in the background. Even if an agent is away from their client or on vacation, their clients can still make offers and move the process forward while the agent remains in the loop, ensuring no lost commission. The platform provides efficiency, transparency, and access for both client and agent alike,” adds Simpson.
The free app gives all parties total transparency and accessibility 24 hours a day, seven days a week to schedule showings, ask questions, list properties, and make offers in real time. The process begins with listing creation, done by the seller, their agent or both together while in the house or anywhere. Listing contracts are filled and sent for electronic signature automatically to all parties. The platform also schedules all showings and provides an opinion survey post to the client and their agent from those who view the property.
When it comes to making an offer, the buyer, their agent or both together can send an offer in real time to the seller and seller’s agent from the house or anywhere else. The seller can counter, accept or reject the offer in real time. One of the most dynamic features of the app is once an offer is accepted, all the necessary documentation is automatically generated and filled for all parties to sign via Docusign. This gives real estate agents more freedom and time to spend with clients. Using email and push notifications, clients and agents are always up-to-date and in sync throughout the transaction.
This patented proprietary software is what agents, buyers, and sellers have been wanting and needing for some time now. To learn more about the real estate technology app and the company, visit SQFTx.com.
