If you’re gearing up for SXSW Interactive in Austin, you’ve probably seen the enigmatic brand name Ten-X, and wondered what they are, aside from a pretty cool name. Well, Ten-X says they provide an online platform that removes the aura of mystery and complexity that is seemingly involved in a home sale or purchase.
Our curiosity is piqued
We’ve seen this move before, so we’re curious how Ten-X stands apart (particularly because they call themselves the “nation’s leading online marketplace for real estate” prior to ever launching).
They say they have created a new avenue for home sellers, homebuyers, and their agents when it comes to transacting real estate. The Ten-X online platform says they offer simple listing, negotiating, and transacting tools designed to bring transparency, convenience, and simplicity back to the entire process.
No matter if you are buying or selling, access is what consumers are demanding. That is what Ten-X seems to be all about. This startup says they have a marketing machine invented to pin-point the right buyers for a home at the right time, reaching everyone from neighbors down the street to buyers from across the globe.
They say they provide buyers, sellers, and their agents with relevant information, real-time updates, and tools to maximize on their investment.
Talk is cheap
No matter what business you’re in, it’s not what you say; it’s what you prove. That is never more true than in real estate. Thanks to its sister company (see below), Ten-X is amplifying the power of their proven platform to give individual real estate buyers and sellers a new, transparent online marketplace that puts the power of real estate transactions back in the hands of the buyer or seller.
Ten-X has also acquired Auction.com which spreads out the Ten-X footprint considerably.In case you missed it, Auction.com is the nation’s leading marketplace for residential and commercial real estate investors, having sold over 200,000 properties since 2007. Leveraging desktop and mobile technology, Auction.com allows people to safely and easily complete real estate transactions entirely online.
Ten-X is ramping up for a March launch and seems to be hoping to make a splash at SXSW Interactive, so while we haven’t gotten to dig around in the platform with high claims, we intend to. Stay tuned.
