BoomTown Launches Full Suite of Back Office and Transaction Management Capabilities to Manage Entire Client Lifecycle

A deeply integrated front office and back office provides real estate professionals a best-in-class end-to-end solution. Business owners get a bird's-eye view of the entire business process, agents have the tools they need to generate leads and close deals, and back-office employees enjoy efficiency gains to move quickly and accurately through transactions

CHARLESTON, S.C. - August 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

BoomTown, the leading cloud-based sales and marketing automation platform for real estate professionals, announced the launch of back office capabilities through an expanded integration with Brokermint, real estate's leading cloud-based back office and transaction management software, which was acquired by BoomTown. 

Fragmented customer relationship management and back office solutions cause duplication of effort and business inefficiencies, a problem that has plagued the real estate industry for years. Unlike other integrations, this unification of the data layer is the critical component that powers the deep integration and allows agents to seamlessly align the BoomTown and Brokermint platforms, answering the need for an end-to-end solution. While agents, team leaders, and brokers utilize BoomTown's lead generation and customer relationship management solutions, administrative teams can now work in the back-office solution, which handles everything from commissions, offers, and e-signatures, to accounting, transaction management and reporting, and all information is seamlessly synced. It provides visibility into the entire business transaction, and ensures information is accurate, and all relevant parties enjoy a streamlined and efficient process from lead-to-close. 

"This enhanced integration is closing the loop on the real estate transaction process and fostering 'clients-for-life' for our customers by enabling offices to manage their client relationships from first click to close, and deliver more value at every step," said Grier Allen, CEO of BoomTown. "It eliminates inter-office inefficiencies, helps business owners identify opportunities, and creates a solid foundation for continued innovation between front office and back office." 

"The deep integration between the front-end BoomTown solution and back-end Brokermint solution, and the efficiency gains and holistic company view that it delivers, are changing the game," said Chad Priest, Broker in Charge of The Flowertown Group. "Unlike other integrations that still require manual updates and maintenance, this includes data from transactions and commissions, to contact data and user information, so we can confidently manage every front-office and back-office task in one place."

Proposed California Law Restricts Homeownership, National Diversity Coalition Says

Proposed Law Would Effectively Convert Foreclosed Homes Across the State Into 'Rentals'

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - August 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

The Senate Appropriations Committee will vote on Aug. 11 whether to approve AB 1837 (author Mia Bonta, co-author Nancy Skinner), a law that advocates say has the potential to convert almost all foreclosed residential homes in California into rental units. According to ATTOM data, there were 12,800 foreclosure starts across the state of California in the first half of 2022, up 219% from last year[1].

"This is likely an unintended consequence that the bill authors didn't see," says Andre Chapple, Board Member of the National Diversity Coalition and Chief Executive of the African American Empowerment Coalition. "Instead of elevating people out of poverty, the new bill traps them in it." 

Background

AB 1837 revises the "Homes for Homeowners, Not Corporations" program (SB 1079), which became effective in 2021. The current law allows prospective homeowners and mission-oriented organizations a 'last look' to buy homes that go to foreclosure auction, which are usually purchased by corporations. The intention of the program is to recirculate homes to owner-occupants and first-time homebuyers.

But advocates say that the new bill does the opposite of promoting home ownership because it restricts the homes as 'affordable housing' for at least 30 years. New homeowners of these properties would still need to shell out down payments, take out mortgage loans and pay for all home repairs. But when they try to sell, owners would need to sell the home for roughly the same price that they bought it. Sellers could even end up "under water" (owing money at closing) to keep the property 'affordable' for the next homeowner if the economy goes into recession and average wages decrease. The average American moves 12 times in their lifetime, or roughly once every seven years[2].

According to Jack Miranda, Board Member of the National Diversity Coalition and Executive Director of the Jesse Miranda Center for Hispanic Leadership, "They may be called homeowners, but the law basically turns these properties into rentals without a landlord to replace the furnace when it breaks." He added, "We appreciate the intention to keep homes affordable, but we can't put the entire burden of fixing California's affordability crisis on the backs of our minority and low-income communities."

The new law has a loophole - prospective homeowners who can buy a home with cash are not subject to the affordability restriction.  Foreclosure sales require buyers to pay with all cash. According to the Federal Reserve Board's latest Study of Consumer Finances, the average American only has $5,300 of savings in their bank accounts[3], while the average California home cost $865,000 in June 2022, according to the California Association of Realtors[4].

About National Diversity Coalition

National Diversity Coalition is a 501c3 nonprofit advocacy organization that represents almost 3 million diverse and minority constituents across the state of California from San Francisco Bay area, Central Valley, Greater Los Angeles, and San Diego.

Zephien Inc. Launches Top Agent Program Nationwide

In the changing market, Zephien's Top Agent program helps home buyers and home sellers achieve exceptional results

DENVER - August 2, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Zephien Inc., the real estate concierge service that helps home buyers and sellers find the top agent in their area, has announced that its new Top Agent program will expand nationwide. Zephien Inc. has been helping home sellers and home buyers find the best agent in their area to fit their specific real estate needs. The company screens hundreds of real estate agents on a multitude of factors, both qualitative and quantitative, to find the top-producing agents. Out of these top agents, Zephien interviews, analyzes, and selects the best performers of the group. 

Not all real estate agents are equal. The wrong agent can cost tens of thousands of dollars in lost equity or a bad purchase offer. Home buyers and sellers need to be sure that the professional they choose to work with is at the top of their game. A lot of real estate agents are great at sounding like the best fit for the job, but most of them lack the actual experience or track record to back it up. Zephien's Top Agent program gives home buyers and sellers the peace of mind that the agent they are talking with is a seasoned professional with a proven track record of success and happy clients. 

The Top Agent program by Zephien Inc. is unique due to its exclusivity and rigorous entry process. In each area covered, Zephien Inc. will only recommend a small handful of agents, typically no more than 15 per state. This is why home sellers love finding their Zephien Recommended Agent, because they can be assured they will be getting the best professional in their area for their real estate transaction. 

Starting off out of Denver, Colorado, the Zephien Top Agent program has been helping Coloradans find their best agent across the state. Now, the program is going nationwide. From California to Florida, Zephien Inc. is undergoing a major expansion of its Top Agent program, screening thousands of real estate agents across the country and finding the best agents in each state to work with. Home buyers and home sellers across the country will soon have a great program to look at when choosing their next real estate professional.

See if Zephien's Top Agent program is coming to your neighborhood by visiting them online or calling (833) ZEP-HIEN ((833) 937-4436).
