Countdown To Buy, a next generation online real estate marketplace that offers fair and effective solutions to buy and sell properties, has provided a progress update and strategic commentary on its online marketplace that removes uncertainty and restores confidence in the real estate transaction model for foreclosure and distressed properties.
“Over the last seven months, Countdown To Buy has demonstrated that by working closely with listing agents, an accelerated sales cycle can be achieved without sacrificing sales price," said Tom Furey, managing partner of Countdown To Buy. "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."
