In 2021, the real estate industry has been more competitive than ever.
As a realtor, I need all the help I can get when it comes to giving my clients the best service possible.
The second quarter of each year is always the busiest, so when things were ramping up I started to research tools that would help me be the best realtor I can be, and that's when I came across Ribbon.
Ribbon helps homebuyers upgrade their mortgage pre-approval into a winning cash offer. The Ribbon team consists of real estate experts and technology innovators that have sold thousands of homes throughout their careers.
I was unsure about using these types of services and whether they would actually help. But when I found out Ribbon is free to use for agents, I thought I had nothing to lose, so I tried it out.
When you use Ribbon, your clients have the option to make an all cash offer. When I first read this, I thought there had to be some catch, but it really does mean all cash and costs the client just 1% of the purchase price of the property. This majorly increases my client's chances of winning in a multiple offer scenario.
Ribbon helps me help my clients who need to buy or sell in a timely manner, removing any home sale contingencies. With Ribbon, my clients can close in as little as 14 business days - Ribbon has the fastest close time in the industry.
Their Ribbon Reserve program has Ribbon purchase on behalf of the buyer until the client can repurchase the home back (up to 6 months later). This program costs 2% of the purchasing price, and all fees aren't collected until closing. I also get paid my full agent commission upfront when Ribbon first purchases the home by representing them.
Ribbon's technology is super impressive. Their platform allows you to create auto-fill offers, negotiate and collaborate, and track activity from other parties all on-the-go.
The Ribbon team is always there to help anytime I have a query. When you sign up for Ribbon you get your own Ribbon Advisor. Mine has helped me a lot in advising what offer terms to make and expedite the process to get it all done on a time crunch in a competitive situation.
Overall between the expert team's assistance, Ribbon's powerful technology, and the financial options it allows me to offer my clients, Ribbon has been a game changer for me. It gives my clients a chance at their dream home while making my job a whole lot easier. I'd recommend Ribbon to all real estate agents.
