Homesnap Launches AI-Powered Sell Speed
Homesnap recently introduced Sell Speed, a new artificial intelligence-powered tool that can predict how quickly a home will sell at various price points. Sell Speed is a proprietary algorithm comprised of hundreds of up-to-the-minute data points, and it’s now available in beta for Homesnap Pro and Homesnap Pro+ users.
Guy Wolcott, co-founder of Homesnap, explains why Homesnap launched the tool: “We’re constantly talking to agents about what’s missing in their lives, what they’re doing that’s difficult. We’re looking for opportunities to improve those things, reduce the friction or whatever that might be.”
Sell Speed addresses a concern that Homesnap has heard agents express: the time component of pricing a home to sell. A number of automated valuation models are on the market, including some that are consumer-facing like the Zestimate. Sell Speed is different because it predicts time on market.
