A real estate startup backed by one of the founders of Uber launched this week. It’s called Haus.
Let’s not get carried away with this. What Haus does is pretty basic: it’s a tool for managing offers.
A listing agent puts their listing onto Haus, where buyers’ agents can then submit offers. Any and all offers are viewable to pretty much everyone.
Sellers can see what they’re getting, those who have written offers can see how they stack up, and those thinking about writing an offer can see if it’s worth their time.
The terms of each offer, minus the names, are compared side-by-side.
Nothing else changes. Same forms. Same legal rules. Same players, for now.
