Today, buying a home is hard, opaque, and just plain annoying at times. Each stage of home buying has its own set of problems - going to see houses, finding an agent, getting a mortgage, making an offer, closing, lawyers! What if a mobile experience could combine all these actions into a fun, clean, and straight forward game-like application? Introducing the Ribbon Mobile 3.0: Swipe. View. Buy the house of your dreams.
What if you could get beautiful, curated MLS listings forwarded to you based on specific personalized house criteria? What if you don’t have to go back and forth with painful negotiations and had the equivalent of a one-click purchase on Amazon or a “Buy it now” on eBay? I tried to make the house hunting experience great, delightful, and fun!
I participated in design tasks including:
Match on what matters. This app concept is around the annoying task of sifting through automated MLS listing emails you usually get from the real estate listing agents. Conceptually speaking, what if a one-of-a-kind algorithm matches you on what matters.
This app would ask you personalized questions about things you desire in your dream home and connect you on what matters. There are some things you should know before you see the house in person. In Ribbon's case, if I am flying down from New York to South Carolina to see my dream home. No matter who you are, no matter what you’re looking for, this app concept is intended to help you find "dream home" — whatever that means to you.
