Xome-1

The firm has sent 1,400-plus leads to the more than 14,000 agents in its network who agree to charge a commission of — at most — 2 percent for their services.

A licensed brokerage, the firm has no agents itself but sends leads to its agent network in exchange for a referral fee.

Xome uses an online “concierge” service to usher homebuyers and sellers through a transaction from beginning to end.

Nationstar envisions capturing some Xome clients for its title and mortgage divisions, potentially giving it a hand in the full life cycle of a deal.

Xome is among a crop of new online real estate marketplaces such as Opendoor and Owners.com that aim to bring more of the transaction online.
