Xome announced that they were entering the brokerage industry through the offer of an online portal for consumers and the potential of a rebate to consumers who buy and sell through its service and the agents who are employed by Xome to handle their customers. Xome says they have the largest most accurate data base of homes for sale, some of the best search technology around and that consumers may be able to receive a discount when they purchase through the Xome network.
Most importantly Xome says that they have the first truly end-to-end online transaction process yet to be available. Not only may a consumer buy or sell a home but they can have the entire process handled online so that a consumer can more easily access the transaction as it occurs. Xome says it will have a full concierge program to be available to assist consumers as they move through the process. Should this all be the case, Xome will be the first to tie all the parts of the transaction together in one online process.
