The New Era of Buying & Selling a House

Panelists include: Marc Chesley, OfferPad; Dod Fraser, Opendoor; Thomas Sponholtz, Unison; Moderator: Amy Wan, Crowdfund Insider.

There is a significant amount of innovation happening in home buying; companies Opendoor and OfferPad are platforms that are reducing friction when homeowners want to sell their home; they do this by providing an offer to the homeowner instead of having to list the home through a real estate agent; Unison has two products to help homeowners; the first is a product that provides up to 50% of a down payment and the second is a product that allows a homeowner to sell equity in a house they already own; the various business models of these companies are explored in this panel.
