Redefy Corporation, a technology and data-enabled company that seeks to disrupt the way people buy and sell residential real estate, today announced the launch of RedefyDIY, the First “Do It Yourself” residential real estate listing platform.
Built with proprietary technology, RedefyDIY makes it faster, easier and less expensive for homeowners to list residential real estate for sale. RedefyDIY is initially available in Florida and Texas through RedefyDIY.com, with plans to expand nationally. Florida and Texas were selected as preliminary launch states due to their economic growth, real estate market dynamics and perceived market receptivity.
“In an environment where customers are demanding easier and more cost-efficient ways to sell their home, we are excited to expand our service offerings to include a ‘Do-It-Yourself’ platform,” said Chris Rediger, Chief Executive Officer of Redefy. “We believe the residential real estate industry is on the cusp of significant innovation that will make it faster, easier and less expensive for homeowners to sell real estate. It wasn’t too long ago when consumers had to call their stockbroker to buy or sell securities. Today, they can accomplish the same task entirely online, in less time and at lower cost. We believe the innovation introduced through RedefyDIY will transform how homeowners sell their residential real estate.”
Homeowners visiting RedefyDIY.com start the listing process by typing in their property’s address. In the background, Redefy automatically collects information from multiple data sources to help customers complete the listing process faster, easier and more accurately. The homeowner is provided with three flat-fee pricing and service options, including self-service, limited-service and virtual full-service, then enters custom information about the property, and uploads or schedules photography. After the homeowner makes their selection, Redefy’s proprietary software coordinates the process of selling the home.
RedefyDIY provides three pricing and service options, where applicable by law:
RedefyDIY is the first platform to use data from multiple sources to prepopulate home information once an address is entered, thereby saving home sellers time in completing the listing process. There are more than 600 Multiple Listing Services used by real estate agents to share information and each requires hundreds of fields of information about the features of a property. Since each field is determined by local real estate professionals and uses different terminology or data fields, we overcame a significant challenge to create the foundation for a national residential real estate listing platform.
“We took the new Real Estate Standards Organization’s (RESO) recommended standards for listing fields to create a solution that translates all of the database fields to the MLS of the property location,” said Scott Petronis, Chief Product and Technology Officer for Redefy and Board Member of RESO. “This is the fastest, easiest and lowest cost process to get homes listed for sale.”
