For Sale By Owner Listings in Michigan

Many people who are looking to sell a home will often enlist the services of a real estate agent or broker to complete this task for them. In most cases, realtors make the process easier as they will devote their efforts towards selling the home. While a realtor is very beneficial for many sellers, there are some people who prefer to sell a home by themselves. Whenever a person sells a home independently, they will list their property as a for sale by owner. This has been one of the emerging trends in recent years. Many people in the state of Michigan have looked to sell their homes without the assistance provided by a realtor. When looking to list a home as a for sale by owner, it will be important to consider a number of things. These include the types of homes sold, the price, size, condition and also on how to market the property. By focusing on these things, sellers will be in better position to sell their home in a timely manner as well as educating buyers about the property. Sellers who offer FSBO listings will benefit by using companies such as Reozom.com to help them with the process. Continue reading

“Disruptive” Companies You Can’t Live Without

otherdisruptors

A “disruptor” is a company that goes against the grain in order to evolve an industry. Our online real estate transaction platform, Reozom, is considered a disruptive company because we shake things up when it comes to the norm in real estate.

By leveraging technology, we are able to save homeowners thousands of dollars in their real estate transaction by eliminating expensive agent commission fees.

Here are other companies that may not realize were once disruptors:

Amazon completely changed the game when it came to online shopping. By offering unbeatable prices, people began browsing on Amazon to buy pretty much anything.

Amazon also upped the ante when it came to one-day shipping or even day-of shipping. Now we even use Amazon to binge watch our favorite shows or arrange for every day household items to arrive right on our porches.

Our guess is that you’re probably reading this on your iPhone, so all you have to do is take a look at what you’re holding to realize why Apple was a disruptor.

Apple’s release of the iPod back in 2001 was a total revelation for the tech world. Think about it, this was back then people were still walking around with portable CD players. Now, we are able to manage our entire lives right from the palm of our hand.

Can you imagine a world where you couldn’t binge watch Walking Dead for hours into the night? Us either. Sorry, Blockbuster.

I think we can all agree that the on-demand streaming of movies and shows that Netflix brought directly to our televisions was either the best thing that ever happened to us (or the very reason for our own demise).

Ikea isn’t such an obvious one, but it absolutely was a disruptor. Ikea gave us the ability to buy cheap furniture and instantly furnish an entire house, if we so desired.

Although, let’s be real, Ikea could still help out by making the dressers just a little bit easier to build.

Two guys that knew nothing about the taxi industry completely transformed the taxi industry after rolling out Uber. Now, even people who live in the suburbs have the luxury of hitching a ride to a concert or the bar.

Not to mention, documenting an Uber ride on Snapchat now provides all of us with some high quality Friday night entertainment.

All of these companies have become a major part of our lifestyles.
If you love and use these companies, we can guarantee that you will love Reozom.

Real Estate Technology: Zillow VS Reozom

As a real estate tech platform and online broker, our team at Reozom is often asked the question, “Are you guys like another Zillow?”

The answer is, “No. Actually, Reozom does A LOT more than Zillow.”

Reozom is a real estate transaction platform.
From start to finish, Reozom users list, market, manage and sell their properties.

First, the seller lists their home on Reozom and completes all legal disclosures in under an hour. Next, the property is immediately marketed on all major sites like ZillowTruliaRealtor.com and the MLS (which Zillow does not do).

On Reozom, sellers can manage their listings by scheduling Open Houses, accepting Showing Requests and negotiating Offers. Reozom also automatically generates a Purchase Agreement to finalize the deal.

Zillow is an advertisement and lead platform for agents and nothing more.
Reozom is a transaction platform that markets and does a lot more.

Reozom provides real time analytics.
We hate to burst your bubble, but the data on Zillow is very outdated. Zestimates are months behind and can fluctuate based on advertising sales.

Reozom gives sellers a real time look into their listing’s activity. Users know exactly when their property is being viewed and how many people have looked at their home online. Reozom’s numbers are accurate and current by the second.

Reozom connects buyers & sellers directly.  

From scheduling showings to live online messaging, Reozom is the only real estate platform out there that allows the buyers and sellers to communicate directly and effortlessly.

Zillow depends on real estate agents in order to make money through advertising. Therefore, Zillow will never cut out the middleman to bring sellers and buyers together like Reozom does.

Reozom is ad-free. For us, it’s all about YOU and your listing’s success.

Overall, Reozom is a real estate marketing site, transaction tool and management platform all wrapped into one.
