Homevana(R) Makes It Simple to Sell Homes Without an Agent
San Diego, CA, Oct 03, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
At a time when consumers have far less disposable income, paying costly commissions ranging from around $5,000 to $50,000 or more can be brutal. That's why the launch of Homevana could be the Holy Grail for cash strapped sellers and buyers, giving them the freedom to save thousands of dollars by not forking over commissions to real estate agents.
This San Diego-based web platform, which launched in September, is free to use and enables homebuyers and sellers to complete their real estate transaction online without an agent. Homevana is the consumer version of Kazork, a business-to-business Internet real estate company, which has facilitated the sale of more than 4,000 homes nationwide since 2008.
What makes Homevana unique? First, this groundbreaking service provides homeowners with free MLS, Zillow, Realtor.com, and Trulia listings to powerfully market their home. It gives homeowners the tools to negotiate the price and terms of the sale online, and offers them the ability to complete and sign all paperwork electronically with the buyer.
Second, paying a large commission is a huge concern for people trying to sell their home, so Homevana offers the best "zero commission" option in the marketplace. Using Homevana, homebuyers are able to submit their offers online and directly to the home seller without agent intervention.
Third, until now no easy way has existed for a home seller and buyer to negotiate the deal and complete all the paperwork on their own without agent involvement. With Homevana, even a first time seller or buyer is able complete all necessary paperwork and negotiate the simplified purchase contract online without an agent.
Homevana enables buyers and sellers to comfortably control their real estate deal. Buyers and sellers can directly communicate to ask questions and arrange showings. Buyers and real estate agents submit their offers online to the seller through the web site. Once the contract is executed using electronic signatures, the buyer and seller utilize an escrow/closing company to complete the deal. All documents are securely stored and are accessible for retrieval 24/7.
Homevana was created to solve a major problem for consumers; there was no existing business model that allowed for the confident completion of a real estate transaction without an agent. There are For Sale by Owner (FSBO) models, but none offer free nationwide MLS listings and third party web site publishing services like Homevana. In addition, FSBO platforms charge subscription fees and don't enable customers to complete the entire transaction online. Many FSBO sites have become little more than lead generation sites for real estate agents.
FSBO transactions comprise about one in every 10 home sales nationwide per year. Those figures are expected to rise as new Internet models like Homevana emerge and consumers grow increasingly comfortable with technology.
