A company that has offices in Lancaster and Jenkintown, aims to connect home sellers with those looking for new digs has launched a real estate platform that is aimed to replace a traditional real estate agent.
Ryan Harris has founded Noodigs, a self-guided platform that walks home owners through the home selling process and says it will help them save money as well in the long run. The platform guides sellers through the home selling process including helping them with negotiation and document preparation.
Noodigs says that sellers can create an account in less than a minute, then sellers answer questions while the website analyzes public records and recent sales history on comparable properties before making a sales price recommendation. The company will arrange for a professional photographer to take photos and video of the house. The listing is then created by Noodigs and placed on 60 homesale websites and potential buyers can book showings through the platform. And a real estate agent at Noodigs is available to help clients with questions. Noodigs will then analyze any offers. Offers then can be accepted right through the platform.
Prospective homebuyers can also sign up for an account, schedule showings through the site, and communicate with home owners through the site.
Harris said in a press release that he founded Noodigs after experiencing frustration during his own home buying process, and when it was time for him and wife to sell their house, they decided it to sell it themselves. Harris says that the experience of selling his own house which he says saved him and his wife a lot of money in fees, is what made him decide to launch the website.
Harris has spent the last two years building the business and the software. The company is a licensed brokerage in Pennsylvania and opened an office in Jenkintown, Montgomery County last year and this year opened an office on Liberty Street in Lancaster in June before launching the website in July.
