Inman News announces that applications for Inman Incubator, a real estate startup accelerator program, are now open.
The Inman Incubators program is a yearlong mentorship, advisory and promotional program to help up to 25 new companies in the real estate industry succeed. The program is open to technology startups, brokerages, agents, service providers, and others in the real estate industry with new, innovative products and business models.
Registered users of Redfin’s website can now see what the brokerage’s agents thought of listings they’ve toured, whether "the lawn needs to be mowed" or the home "showed well," CEO Glenn Kelman announced in a blog post.
The comments that Redfin agents make in "Agent Insights" notes will also be e-mailed automatically to listing agents, Kelman said.
Given the sheer number of homes Redfin agents tour, the new feature will be a "game changer," for consumers, he said. The 13,793 Agent Insights currently available for homes on the market represent 35 percent of active listings in Irvine, Calif., and 31 percent of Seattle listings, Kelman wrote.
Redfin will give the client who requested the tour two days to decide whether they want to suppress Agent Insight comments.
