Real estate startup puts its money where its mouth is

Tech company gets paid based on how much buyers save
  • HomeDashboard, an app which gives buyers a control panel to manage their homebuying process, has launched in the U.K.
  • The app will also guide buyers through what price to offer and provide access to an optional concierge team of advisers.
  • HomeDashboard is looking to launch in the U.S. in the latter part of next year.

The biggest difference between the U.K. and U.S. real estate scenes is that, across the pond, buyers are enormously underrepresented and rarely supported. This unbalanced approach to purchasing a home has led young British entrepreneur Jonathan Harris to start HomeDashboard, an online service designed to help manage the buying process online.
