If your home is eligible, they’ll send your cash offer within a few days, and you decide what’s next.

This seems to be the million-dollar question. The real estate sector has undergone a dramatic shift, thanks to tech giants like Zillow and Redfin. Many tech enthusiasts want to offer tech software solutions that cut out the middleman. 

Julie Sandler, managing director of Pioneer Square Labs Venture, seems to think that real estate professionals shouldn’t worry, as they simply offer too much value to the average homeowner. However, it’s important to start thinking about what you can contribute to the customer experience that a software solution can’t replicate.
