The ‘startup’ allows the transfer of real estate through a simple and fast process, which lasts no more than seven days
The time invested and the paperwork: factors that hinder the sale of housing
The sale of second-hand housing is a process that can be slow at times, being able to extend much more than desired. Therefore, it ends up being exhausting due to this intense wait until the purchase is formalized, to which the paperwork process is added.
Clicpiso is a Spanish start-up that was born to streamline this process and make the experience of selling a home fast. The platform differs from the two options that, until now, there was to sell a house: in the first person or through a real estate agency.
“Although there is a gradual process of digitization in the process, which is fundamental in the sector, none of the two options that the seller has solves the mystery of when the house will be transferred, nor does it ensure that the sales experience is five stars,” declares Francisco Moreno, founder and CEO of Clicpiso, who returned from New York, where he was in several innovation projects, to start in Spain.
“There is a lot of concern on the part of the person selling the property about how long it will take the buyer to get the necessary financing, this platform solves the problem because, in seven days, the house is sold,” explains Moreno. The startup offers immediate liquidity with a cash payment through a fast, simple and transparent process.
How is it the procedure?
The person interested in selling the house gets in touch with the platform by providing the data of the house in order to make the first assessment using algorithms. If the seller is in agreement with the appraisal, an adviser comes to the property to evaluate and validate both the information and the offer. “If accepted, the paperwork lasts seven days at the most, after which we give the client the corresponding price of the residence,” explains the founder.
Clicpiso is the buyer of the house. After managing the entire process, realizes the reforms and relevant changes in the buildings so they are in the best condition and put them on sale.
The purchase of the house by Clicpiso is an independent process of the subsequent sale of the house to the person interested in it.
