Sakneen is young, having been founded in 2019 by El Kheshen and Ramy Khorshed.
The two Co-Founders said in a blog post:
“We’re looking to reinvent the real estate process. Standing in the way of a better real estate experience is disorganized public information, mismatched incentives in the sales process, and a lack of transparency around financials. Sakneen is building the technology that will help tackle all three with the vision of turning the struggle of finding a home into joy for millions of homebuyers.”
Sakneen is still under development, even with its recent success via Y Combinator’s influence, but is expected to launch fully later this year. Its business model focuses on the developers and agents. Users can utilize its next-gen technology platform for a monthly fee for now, but the co-founders say they are actively looking into monetizing transactions in the future.
When it comes to those looking to buy a home, Sakneen offers an inventory search engine for primary and secondary properties listed through the site without the need for paid ads or listings.
