One Click + Purchase
Today, buying a home is hard, opaque and just plain annoying at times. Each stage of homebuying has its own set of problems - going to see homes, finding an agent, getting a mortgage, making an offer, closing, lawyers!
What if you could simply go online and buy the home you want? What if you had the equivalent of a one-click purchase on Amazon or a "Buy it now" on eBay?
UX / UI Design
How might we...
give a home buyer the confidence to purchase a home with the click of a button.

Design Concept #1
Onboarding and building a profile +
Surfacing similar listings
AI onboarding should give buyers contextual insights on what to expect as they go through their journey.
This would help build out a user’s profile so they can act quickly when they find the one – teaching them the importance of knowing how much they can afford, helping get all their required documents together and even making suggestions on new properties based on search and save history.
Design Concept #2
3D Tour + Inspection
Buyers want to be able to make informed decisions before they purchase. 3D tours give them the opportunity to walk through the space without the need to physically be there, getting a sense of the layout and highlighting key details. It’s not just about the property but also the street and neighborhood.
Knowing the condition of a property goes a long way in making a confident decision. Questions like "Will the roof need to be replaced soon?" become easy to answer with an inspection report, which are performed by local licensed professionals.
