"Buyers and their agents are provided direct access to independently prepared valuation reports, and a trusted offer management platform that reduces prices one percent per day until a sealed offer meets the daily price."     Key company metrics and accomplishments ►Recognized as a top industry innovator by Bank Technology News and Connecticut Quality Improvement Award. ►Secured more than $1.5 million in funding from investors. ►Successfully completed two pilot programs for leading financial institutions. ►Obtained additional pilot commitments from domestic and international developers. ►Featured properties in 19 states ranging in price from $20,000 to $680,000. ►Sold more than 75 percent of all properties featured on the platform. ►Sold properties ranging in price from $20,000 to $220,000. ►Average sales price exceeded comparable industry benchmarks. ►Averaged 17 days from list to an accepted offer. ►More than 90 percent of all accepted offers made it to closing. ►Effectively improved overall sales performance on both new and aged real estate-owned (REO) properties. “We’ve been fortunate to work with large institutional clients that are open to innovation and willing to help us set a new standard for trust, transparency, and efficiency in real estate transactions," said Jim Hodson, chief executive officer of Countdown To Buy.
