Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) August 5, 2006
Thanks to I-agent.com, the meticulous home buying process just got a bit easier. The newly launched company today announced its interactive Web site is live and ready for homebuyer hits.
I-agent.com offers an innovative and easy way to incorporate the Web in a house hunt. By giving consumers every tool necessary to search for their own homes, the costs of a traditional real estate transaction are cut, which enables I-agent.com to offer buyers 66% of the buyer’s agent commission (roughly 2% of the purchase price). In the Washington-Metropolitan area, this translates to an average savings of $11,000 per I-agent.com transaction.
“We’re using the Web to revolutionize the way people buy homes,” says I-agent.com CEO, Khalil El-Ghoul. He adds, “Before the rise of the Internet, when people wanted to purchase insurance or make travel arrangements, they had to use an agent. But now, people can use the Web to compare their own premiums or to book their own vacations. Why not empower homebuyers in the same way?”
According to the National Association of Realtors, 95% of homebuyers begin their search online and 64% of home buyers actually find their own home online, and then enlist an agent to close the deal. I-agent.com caters to this self-sufficient buyer, who wants to save time and money.
Unlike its Web counterparts, I-agent.com capitalizes on its patent pending “Intelligent Search” to offer buyers more search parameters. Instead of looking for a home according to the desired amount of bedrooms and bathrooms, buyers also can search new home listings according to incentives, such as 100% financing, options allowances, pre-paid condo or homeowner’s association fees, and closing cost assistance.
Once buyers narrow down their search to a few properties, licensed and salaried I-agent.com Realtors® will walk them through the entire home buying process. The company has even streamlined the loan process by teaming up with SunTrust Mortgage to offer attractive, low cost packages for I-agent.com clients.
“Overall, we are going to continue to find new ways to give buyers the tools they need to save money from every angle when buying a home,” El-Ghoul says. He adds, “We truly believe we are the intelligent way to buy a home, and we think buyers will agree.”
Currently, I-agent.com is the only home buying Web site of its kind serving the Washington-Metropolitan area. The company plans to be nationwide by the end of 2006.
