In 2008, shortly after selling my previous startup, my fiance and I went looking for homes outside of Boston. At this one particular open house, on the kitchen table, the sellers left an 8” stack of papers offering information about the history of the home...manuals, home pros hired, warranty information...even down to paint colors by room. We ended up, were even compelled, to buy that home, and we still live in it today.
Why is that we know so little about the makeup and history of homes when we buy them? Why was it that there was not an online platform/app to manage everything about the home? Why is it that my car software tells me so much about what I need to do but my home (10x the cost) does not?
We started HomeBinder 2012 with the goal of building a platform for home that could fill the gaps in the questions above. Our mission is to centralize, organize, manage, and sell the largest asset in most of our lives. We accomplish this by working with home inspectors, real estate agents, builders, service providers, lenders, property managers, insurance agencies and even HOAs who see value in having a deeper relationship with their clients/customers/buyers/owners.
I often say we aren’t so much owners as we are stewards of homes. I’m not the first, and I won't be the last of my home. But I am a more capable owner because I have HomeBinder and the next owner of my home will be even better off than I was when I bought back in 2008.
We hope you will find value in what we’ve built, whether you are a homeowner, or a business that serves homeowners (or both!). After all, HomeBinder is for everyone in the residential home ecosystem.
