HomeBinder debuts new features that strengthen the relationship between homeowners, home professionals, mortgage lenders, insurance providers and other authorized partners

BOSTON, Mass. -- HomeBinder, a centralized home management platform that keeps homeowners connected with mortgage lenders, home inspectors, insurance providers, home pros, real estate agents, and other authorized professionals, today announced the release of new features and user interface (UI) improvements designed to enhance the home management experience. By fostering greater consumer engagement in digital home management, HomeBinder keeps homeowners connected with the businesses that support their ownership journey, creating opportunities for repeat and referral business and helping build clients for life.

Notably, HomeBinder had introduced a proprietary home valuation tool that aggregates multiple data points - including renovations, appliance upgrades and the completion status of maintenance tasks - to estimate the home's current value and appreciation. The tool also tracks information including purchase price, current loan balance, loan term, interest rate, annual taxes and hazard insurance. The feature is designed to help homeowners better track their home's value and provide future buyers with deeper transparency into the history of the home.

The platform update also introduces an evergreen "To Do" list on the homeowner's homepage. The list highlights important tasks driven both by homeowner-specific binder data as well as the stage of ownership, following models used by many other successful SaaS platforms.

The new UI also features enhanced navigation and workflows that improve organization of tools such as document storage, maintenance history, home improvement projects, appliance models, property details and photos.

"This latest update to the HomeBinder interface strengthens homeowner engagement with the platform, keeping users connected with their mortgage lenders and other authorized home professionals," said HomeBinder Chief Product Officer Guy Tassinari. "By offering unique new capabilities and targeted improvements to organizational workflows, HomeBinder continues to be a valuable, user-friendly resource homeowners will return to again and again, creating long-term referral and repeat business opportunities."

Swift Homes Makes It Easy to Sell Your House Fast for Top Value

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Swift Homes, headquartered in Chicago, is a leading home cash buyer throughout the southern United States. Helping homeowners sell their residential properties quickly for top value. Swift Homes purchases homes in as-is condition, making the process straightforward and efficient while giving our customers peace of mind.

Traditional real estate sales include fees, lacking a proper client experience that is typically inconvenient with no guarantees. This is not the case with Swift Homes. The company primarily buys single-family homes that are then rented out to local families. However, they do consider other property types.

Swift Homes provide top-dollar cash offers, a highly experienced home purchasing company bolstered by a robust private equity fund. It can have the entire transaction completed in as few as ten days. When Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina residents sell to Swift Homes, they don't need to invest time and money into extensive repairs and modifications. As their name suggests, Swift Homes is dedicated to providing each homeowner with a closing that is both quick and uncomplicated.

Having bought more than 5,000 houses nationwide, Swift Homes personnel have had the opportunity to work with those seeking to expeditiously sell their properties for various reasons, including occupation changes, family emergencies, and other pressing situations. Many customers working with Swift Homes found that the ability to get high value for their houses in a relatively short period was a critical factor in their overall financial well-being.

The standard, time-tested process that Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina sellers go through with Swift Homes begins with submitting a brief informational form regarding the property itself. Upon receiving and evaluating the form, the team will furnish a personalized proposal with their reliable cash offer. If the seller indicates that the offer is acceptable, Swift Homes will schedule a convenient home inspection to assess its current condition thoroughly. At that point, the deal is finalized, with the seller selecting a closing date that best meets their particular needs. To conclude the process, Swift Homes will dispense the agreed-upon cash payment.

Swift Homes is confident that they are the ideal cash home buyers with their unmatched process and dependable offers. With the backing of the private equity fund, all-cash offers made are trustworthy and transparent. Their customers don't need to worry about conditional financing woes or having the transaction drag on. Swift Homes personnel would also like prospective customers to know that sellers maintain control from beginning to end. While the company only makes offers they genuinely feel are competitive and fair, sellers have every right to decline and will never be pressured to go along with a deal that makes them uncomfortable.

Homeowners in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina can speak with a Swift Homes representative by calling (877) 861-2466. To learn more about Swift Homes and their process, please visit http://www.selltoswift.com/ or send an email to hello@SellToSwift.com.

Trion Properties Launches Third Fund; Targets $175-200 Million in Buying Power Focused on Southeast and Western Multifamily Properties

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Trion Properties, a private equity real estate firm based in West Hollywood, California and Miami, Florida specializing in value-add multifamily investments, has announced the launch of Trion Multifamily Opportunity Fund III, LLC, its third investment fund vehicle.

The fund, which will target $75 million in equity to deliver $175-200 million in buying power, will primarily invest in the acquisition, improvement, and repositioning of undervalued and opportunistic multifamily assets in Western and Southeastern U.S. markets. Fund III anticipates acquiring 8-12 properties over its investment period.

The launch of this fund comes on the heels of the closing of the firm's second fund, which has 215 diverse investors, including accredited high net worth investors, RIAs, and family offices, and is allocated across value-add and opportunistic multifamily investments within growing submarkets demonstrating strong growth fundamentals, according to Max Sharkansky, Managing Partner at Trion Properties.

"With our first two funds, we executed an investment strategy that proved quite resilient, which allowed us to take advantage of several significant opportunities during both incredibly strong and uncertain economic times," says Sharkansky. "We are able to leverage our long-standing industry relationships to acquire these opportunities primarily through off-market transactions. This enabled us to build a strong portfolio of communities, acquired for highly competitive prices, which were positioned to provide strong returns to our investors."

To date, the firm has acquired 64 properties and has completed more than $1 billion in transactions.

Mitch Paskover, Managing Partner at Trion Properties adds, "Trion's sole focus on our proven strategy of acquiring and repositioning undervalued multifamily assets in key markets, combined with our vertically integrated property management platform, has led to demonstrable success. The average investor annualized return on our properties exceeds 30% annually, and all properties purchased with Funds I and II have either met or exceeded projections or are on pace to do so. We will continue to implement this strategy on assets acquired with Fund III on an expanded scale."

Fund III is targeting investor-level annualized returns of 13% to 15% over a 6-8-year period, with early "seed investors" receiving preferred economics. As with the firm's first two funds, the firm plans to drive value through heavy renovations, re-branding and a hands-on management approach.

"We offer a competitive advantage to investors by having in-house acquisition, project management, property management, debt sourcing, and construction teams," says Sharkansky. "This combination makes us unique and specialized in the markets we target, allowing us to add value where other sponsors cannot."

Selecting assets with longevity and endurance is essential to the firm's acquisition strategy, adds Paskover.

"We have established a foothold in several Western markets, including becoming the most active buyer in the Portland area based on number of transactions, and are eager to continue applying this strategy in those markets and others demonstrating strong growth fundamentals - including the Southeast region, where we recently established a second office," says Paskover.

Trion's current multifamily portfolio encompasses over 1,250 units across Los Angeles, San Diego, the Bay Area, Colorado, and the greater Portland Area. In addition to the Southeast, the firm is also seeking opportunities to acquire in Salt Lake City and Seattle, notes Sharkansky.

Based on solid fundamentals, continued demand and shortage of supply in multifamily housing in these markets, Trion is anticipating strong performance for its investment platform over the long term.

About Trion Properties

Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Los Angeles, Trion Properties is a private equity real estate firm that invests in value-add multifamily throughout the west coast. Trion has completed more than $1 billion in transactions, with a portfolio of over $550 million in assets, generating an average internal rate of return in excess of 30 percent. With its fully built-out operator platform, Trion has repositioned and stabilized undervalued assets, leveraging its expertise in real estate finance and renovation of multifamily properties to drive returns for its investors.

Since its inception, Trion has acquired the fee interest-or in certain instances the debt secured by the fee interest-of over 3,550 multifamily units. To date, Trion has successfully repositioned and resold over 1,750 units and over 200,430 square feet of commercial real estate space.

The principals of Trion Properties are Max Sharkansky and Mitch Paskover, two real estate professionals with over 30 years of combined experience in finance, acquisitions, management and redevelopment. Additional information is available at https://trionproperties.com/.

Skyway.com Answers Buyers’ Need For Rapid Online Condo Insurance In Fast-Paced Housing Market

ST PETERSBURG, Fla. -- It is no secret that the housing market in Florida is hot. Properties move fast, and consumers are finding more ways to make all parts of buying and owning a home quick, easy, and mostly online. One insuretech, UPC Insurance®, answered the consumer call for the ability to almost instantly have an estimate of what a policy will cost, and the ability to buy a Florida Condo policy completely online with Skyway.com.

"From e-commerce to ride-sharing apps, consumers are increasingly choosing the convenience of online solutions that are quick and effective," said Chris Griffith, COO and CIO of St. Petersburg-based UPC Insurance and President of Skyway.com. "UPC is proud to be a pioneer in direct-to-consumer condo insurance policies... Customers can get a quote in seconds and bind and pay for that policy within minutes."

Lisa Sparks with Jason Mitchell Real Estate confirms the cost of insurance is something that buyers want to have an estimate on before they commit to buying a home. Skyway.com consumers are now able to see the estimated insurance premium for a Florida HO6 condo unit owners policy in seconds. This boosts buyers' confidence: they know they can afford the unit with all expenses, including the insurance cost, without the delay of a traditional quest for similar information on the phone or filling out forms online.

In this market, minutes matter! Realtors are finding it is not unusual for multiple prospective buyers to be lined up in their cars, waiting to see a new listing. Buyers in Florida don't want to lose out on a great unit because they are waiting to hear back on an insurance quote. Sparks confirms having an instant quote prior to submitting their offer is just one more level of uncertainty that can be removed from the transaction, giving buyers a competitive edge when they go into a multiple offer situation.

Skyway.com was designed to be very consumer-friendly. UPC Insurance® collaborated with Swash Labs to ensure the user experience is fast and easy to use. The end result is clear skies ahead for buyers looking to secure a new condo in today's competitive Florida housing market.

Success Systems, Inc. Relocates Headquarters to 383 Main Ave, Norwalk, CT: Choyce Peterson Negotiates 5,649 SF Transaction

NORWALK, Conn. -- Choyce Peterson, Inc. (www.choycepeterson.com), a full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm, announced the successful conclusion of sublease negotiations on behalf of Success Systems, Inc. (www.success-systems.com) for a 5,649 square foot (SF) office at MerrittView, 383 Main Avenue in Norwalk, CT. Choyce Peterson Principal John Hannigan represented Success Systems in this transaction.

When Success Systems recognized that their current lease was nearing expiration, they reached out to Hannigan who had represented them in their original relocation from Stamford to Norwalk in 2015. They explained that they were seeking to relocate within Norwalk to an attractive building with excellent amenities including covered parking, in a convenient location near the Merritt Parkway.

Hannigan commented, "It's been a pleasure representing Success Systems once again in their lease negotiations. There were many available suites to tour in all areas of Norwalk, but by focusing on the most important factors of value and location, we were able to guide the decision-making process, find the best solution to suit their needs, and negotiate very favorable economic terms."

The Success Systems team concluded, "We were very happy to once again work with John on this relocation project. He understood exactly what we were seeking in a new office and did an excellent job of analyzing market options, including the favorable economics of a sublease. We are excited to expand our office space in this new location with terrific amenities for our employees."
