New online platform, Friealtor, is changing the real estate landscape, giving users the chance to save time and money, by taking back control of their house purchase or sale.
Following on from 10 years working as an agent and broker in MD, DC and VA, William McCoy came up with the idea to capitalize on the frustrations shared by many millennials, who are unhappy with paying 1-6% to agents for the sale or purchase of a property, and feel restricted by the traditional bottle-necks and delays of real estate agents.
With more and more people wishing to “take ownership” of their sale or purchase, the easy-to-navigate, online platform allows users to take back control, while still benefiting from expert and legal guidance along the way.
From listing to closing, Friealtor provides property owners with all the tools and services they would get from a traditional real estate agent, but rather than charging costly commission, users pay a simply monthly fee. Sellers can upload in-depth property descriptions, professional pictures, videos and even a 3D tour.
Following a nominal monthly fee paid to an advisor through Friealtor, users benefit from advice, a scheduling service for showings, an electronic lock box that can be controlled from a mobile phone, e-signature, signage and many other tools. Users can also choose from a list of ‘a la carte’ services, selecting the ones that are needed and leaving out those that are not. For example, holding an open house or a request to attend a home inspection.
A key benefit of the Friealtor platform, is how it utilizes the experience and knowledge of agents in areas where it matters most. Rather than a traditional real estate agent, users are assigned a real estate advisor, so are still able to capitalize on their knowledge, particularly when issues arise.
These real estate advisors are as hands-on or hands-off as the user requires.
Another key advantage has to be the removal of additional time hurdles added by real estate agents, and ‘playing telephone’ that often occurs as agents act on behalf of their clients.
“We are saving property owners $1,000s of dollars on the sale or rental of their homes or investment properties” said William McCoy, Director. “It may sound too good to be true, but we promise it’s not. This is the future of real estate and we want to share it with as many people as possible. We see the software as something of a “system update” in an industry that for a long time, has been relatively stuck in its traditional ways” he added.
Overall, Friealtor is helping property owners to have more control, more transparency, and save a considerable amount of money.
While a largely disruptive maneuver in the industry, it has been well received in the early stages, and looks likely to shape the future of property transactions.
