Homebuyers and sellers aren’t necessarily relying on word of mouth referrals to connect with a real estate agent — especially in today’s technology focused society. HomeLight can still be considered a startup, but they’re making a name by providing valuable data for sellers on real estate pros like who’s likely to close the fastest and could get the best price for their property. As time goes on, don’t expect this to be the only company providing this type of info.
