What’s New at HomeBinder – December 2021

We’ve partnered with Thumbtack to expand homeowners’ access to home service professionals
Thumbtack (1)-1
We are excited to announce a new integration with Thumbtack. The integration expands upon the more than 23,000 recommended service providers already listed in HomeBinder to provide consumers with access to hundreds of thousands of home service professionals across every county in the U.S. Partners can populate the ‘Home Service Provider’ tab with a personalized list of recommended home service professionals, strengthening their relationships with those referral partners while providing a valuable service to homeowners. We hope most of you have done this considering how valuable your vetted network is to homeowners. To date we have thousands of home professionals across the country added by our community of partners and real estate agents, however, there are instances where homeowners are requesting additional options for service professionals beyond what exists in the directory. Partnering with Thumbtack enhances HomeBinder’s ability to connect homeowners with local handymen, electricians, painters, and more — and each time homeowners are helped by their HomeBinder, they are reminded of the home inspector, mortgage lender, insurance provider, real estate agent, or other authorized professionals who gifted it to them.

Real Estate Agent Survey According to our latest real estate agent survey, 60% say their top priority for 2022 is to utilize technology to improve the homeowner experience. Recognizing the value of HomeBinder to build asset value and provide peace of mind for clients throughout the life of homeownership, 40% of agents on HomeBinder have referred one or more clients this year to a business that has co-branded with them. Given that businesses are increasingly prioritizing home purchasers to drum up business heading into 2022, HomeBinder fosters referrals from real estate agents by improving the homeowner experience, creating rapid ROI!

Through the integration of our adaptive home valuation tool with Mortgage Coach, we enable homeowners to consistently re-engage their lenders throughout the life of the loan. Borrowers on HomeBinder that view their home value can now, with one-click, leverage the trusted insight and accuracy of Mortgage Coach’s Total Cost Analysis (TCA) to compare how their current mortgage would perform against a standard or a cash-out refinance. Our integration allows lenders utilizing Mortgage Coach to provide automated mortgage reviews on a semi-annual basis, and also empower their borrowers on HomeBinder with an interactive financial modeling experience. For instance, homeowners can adjust variables to see how applying additional money toward their monthly principal would shorten the length of their mortgage and save money on interest. This creates a unique opportunity to build lasting relationships with borrowers and drive repeat business!
