About

 

MySoldMate Instant Access- Your schedule-Your time 

Hi Kickstarter!  

We are soooo excited to be here with our first project. We are passionate about Real Estate and can’t wait to see how MySoldMate Instant Access will change the Real Estate industry. 

Buying a home is one of the most important decisions a person will make in their lifetime. It’s up there with getting married and having children, and we have been blessed with the opportunity to be part of this amazing experience with our clients for over a decade. 

With our many years of Real Estate experience, we have seen very little changes to our industry. Some very cool things like searching and viewing homes online, applying for mortgages and even finding a real estate agent online have definitely made an impact. Our first design MySoldMate Match, an app that matches buyers and sellers to agents based on personality, was something new and fresh. Yet, something was still missing. One of the things that our industry has not done, that others have, is provide ON DEMAND services, until NOW! 

MySoldMate Instant Access is being created with the busy agent and buyer in mind. Showing a home will never be easier or faster. Our goal is to give the buyer the ability to see any home of their choice within minutes and give agents the flexibility to work whenever they want and from wherever they are. 

So how will we do this? By creating an easy to use app that will identify and locate the closest agent to a potential buyer waiting to see a home, within minutes. That’s right, minutes! 

Get ready for amazing changes in the Real Estate industry with MySoldmate Instant Access. Our app will have a licensed agent arrive within 10-15 minutes to show a home which will give the buyer a better opportunity to get into the home of their dreams. It doesn’t get any better than this. Showing a home and picking up new clients will never be easier! 

We are thrilled about our project and hope you will be too. If you are a seasoned agent, a new agent getting started, or a Real Estate guru, please help us to make the dream of MySoldMate Instant Access a reality in your market.

Important Decisions and Design Concepts  

Creating a great design concept is only the beginning of our vision for a successful user experience with MySoldMate Instant Access. We want to create an experience that will be user friendly, fun, and functional for both the agent and the buyer. We had a few design concepts created that will continue to evolve as the app is built. To ensure a flawless and seamless integration with the app, we will partner with a design company to bring the user experience to life.

One of the most important design decisions we had to consider was creating the app to be available on both IOS and Android at the time of launch. With our Real Estate experience, we are aware that both agents and buyers are split 50/50 between the two platforms. In order for us to create a great experience, the app will be available on both at the time of launch. This will take more time and money, however it will allow for the best user experience. Our goal is to begin beta testing the app in Arizona in May 2017 to prepare for the nationwide launch.

GEO Location Concept 1

Location, location, location. This is very important to the success of MySoldMate Instant Access. We will incorporate geo location which will allow our app to identify the buyer's location and notify agents within a 10-15 minute driving distance from that potential buyer. In the unlikely event that there isn’t an agent close enough to show the buyer a home within the 10-15 minute time frame, our app will automatically locate the closest agent and notify the buyer of the agent's expected arrival time.  

Communication

Communicating effectively to both the buyer and the agent is just as important to us as the geo-location piece of our app. MySoldMate Instant Access will send out messages to available agents and enable them to accept the showing request instantly. Buyers will immediately be notified that the agent is on their way, and will also receive the contact information of the agent that accepted the request. It's that easy!

Rating Scale Concept 1

We believe another key ingredient for a great agent and buyer experience is to incorporate a rating system. This addition to the app gives buyers the opportunity to rate the agent on a scale between 1 and 5 stars (1 being the worst and 5 being the best) which allows us to monitor the buyer’s experience with MySoldMate Instant Access.  

Helping Agents Acquire New Clients  

Creating the MySoldMate Instant Access app is exciting, scary, frustrating and everything in between.  

One of the things that keeps us motivated and working hard through the process has been agents just like you. We personally know agents that started off in Real Estate wanting to make it big, only to find out that the cost to get started and maintain a healthy business wasn’t as easy as the popular shows you see on TV.  

Being realtors ourselves, we know there are a lot moving pieces to get your business off to a successful start. We want to bring real value to agents, without costing them a fortune with MySoldMate Instant Access.

Creating an Experience for Buyers

In the early stages, when we created MySoldMate Match, we knew a great buyer experience was the key ingredient. Even as great as our first app is, we knew something was missing. So we took our time, visited some of our past buyer experiences and really focused on the needs of today’s buyer. What we are creating is magic!

One of the key features we are focusing on is helping buyers obtain more control in seeing homes on their time, on their schedule. This means creating an app that would be easy to use, convenient, and satisfies the need for instant gratification.

Easy to use: The app will be available on both IOS and Android. A buyer will be able to easily download the app to their phone anytime day or night. Requesting an agent is easy too. All you do is enter the property address and click “request an agent”. The closest agents will be notified and the first agent to respond will be headed your way to show you the home within minutes.  

Convenient: The app can be downloaded anytime and used when you are ready to see a home, no need to wait around for an agent to fit you into their schedule. See homes when it’s convenient for you, on your time and schedule.  

Cost Effective: Download the app and give it a try. The app will be FREE for buyers and sellers. 

Instant Gratification: No more waiting hours or even days to get into the home of your dreams. With just a few clicks of the app, an agent will arrive in 10-15 minutes, or sooner. Getting you into the home before it’s SOLD.

In many states the market is hot and homes are SOLD before buyers have a chance to get into see them. This won’t be the case for MySoldMate Instant Access users. We will give these users a competitive advantage over other buyers. Missing out on the home of their dreams will be a thing of the past.   

We also considered that the buyer may not like the agent who arrived to show the home. After the showing, buyers have an opportunity to rate the agent between 1 and 5 stars (1 being the worst and 5 being the best). If the agent receives 3 or less stars, the buyer will be directed to MySoldMate Match to connect them with someone who is more compatible with their personality.

We will take good care of the buyer one way or another.

Why we started MySoldMate Instant Acess

We started MySoldMate Instant Access because we love helping people find a place that they will call home. We realized that more and more people were missing out on their dream home because there wasn’t an agent available to show the house on their time. We know buyers today can’t wait hours or even days to see their dream home, especially in hot markets. We want to create a more convenient and easy way to get buyers in to see a home that gives everyone the ability to work on their schedule. By using MySoldMate Instant Access, buyers will instantly connect to the agents that are the most accessible to meet their needs.  

Our mission is to make it as easy as possible for a buyer to see a home while connecting them to an agent that is willing and able to do that at a moment's notice. Our team came together for one clear purpose – to find a way to connect realtors to the buyers they can help the most and the fastest. 

We are designing MySoldMate Instant Access to fit into everyone’s busy lifestyle. We believe it will be the fastest and easiest way for buyers to see homes and for agents to pick up new clients. We are trying to change the Real Estate industry one showing at a time.  

Many thanks to our amazing team who are all helping bring MySoldMate Instant Access to life. We need everyone's support to make our dream a reality.

Risks and challenges

Producing an app is never easy but we have an AWESOME team that has years of experience in real estate combined with a phenomenal front-end and back-end developer. With our real estate connections and our understanding of the market, we are confident that we can deliver a quality product that will not only work, but change the way Realtors show homes forever.

Keep in mind there are always issues that can arise with developing an app, such as log in issues, geo-location problems, creating the right user interface and having enough agents on board to create a great user experience. We must have a minimum number of agents in each market to satisfy the 10-15 minute buyer wait time so there might be a wait to launch in each new market as we scale the number of agents to satisfy a quick response time for the buyer. We are confident any of these issues will be resolved quickly due the experienced team we have in place.

With our vast real estate & software engineering experience, our team is prepared for all of the unforeseen challenges we may encounter during the development and roll out of MySoldMate Instant Access.

Our goal is to have MySoldMate Instant Access completed and launched in all Western markets by the end of December of 2017. With your support, we can make this dream a reality.
