Housa, where agents compete to sell your home...on your terms.

Housa is a blockchain enabled real estate platform that gives home sellers complete control over the terms in which their home is sold. Housa provides unique recommendation tools to enable a more equitable market by providing a platform for agents and brokers to compete for homes “ready to sell”, and incentivizes all users with cash-back rewards.

Images are prototype screens. App is still currently under development.

Real estate in America is broken for everyone. Housa is fixing it by giving homeowners more control and agents more options.

 

The current home selling process is convoluted and needlessly expensive. We know, because we've been there. Everyone at Housa is a homeowner. Many of us are directly involved in the real estate industry as investors, agents, or brokers. We can tell you conclusively that the industry, as it currently exists, has room for improvement.

If you're selling a house, you're forced to give up big portions of your equity through high commissions. 

These fees are never in your favor, whether you're working with a big agency or an independent. 

If you're buying a home, commissions drive up the prices even further in an already inflated market.

For homeowners to receive the cash needed at the close of the sale, prices are typically increased to cover the cost of the agent fees. 

Agents don't fare much better. Leads are expensive, inexact, and someone always takes a piece. 

There's no control in the industry for any of the primary operators. Our seller marketplace will change that.

Images are prototype screens. App is still currently under development.

Housa is a platform that supports homeowners by letting them create their own terms and engage with private agents and brokers for better deals. Plus, Housa offers a cash-back security token to sellers and agents for using our platform, product and services. 


The housing market should work for everyone. With your help, we will make that happen.

HOUSA Tokens

Description: HOUSA Tokens will represent a single common unit of the Company, with rights, preferences, privileges, and restrictions as designated in the Operating Agreement and attached as an Exhibit to the Offering Document.  HOUSA Tokens will be issued on the Ethereum Blockchain.  


The right to tokens is contingent upon the successful development of such Tokens and to the extent applicable, the blockchain upon which they function.  There is no guarantee that successful development will ever occur.  If development is not completed, investors will still receive shares in book-entry form.

HOUSE Tokens

Description: The token that investors will receive as a perk will be the Ethereum ERC-20 HOUSE Token. HOUSE Tokens are key to our smart contract and incentive strategy. We are rewarding all users of the Housa real estate platform and will incentivize all participants in the home searching, buying, and selling process. These, and other actions, are opportunities to earn HOUSE tokens as rewards that will be tradable and utilized on the Housa real estate platform as a form of payment for services as these features are developed. Advertisers, including but not limited to brands, real estate brokers, agents, lenders, inspectors, and title companies, will be able to purchase HOUSE tokens in order to gain access to advertising, sponsorship, and content services on the Housa real estate platform. Our research and development efforts have identified Ethereum as our initial blockchain platform and we may migrate to another blockchain platform to effectively serve the needs of our platform and user community as needed.


The right to tokens is contingent upon the successful development of such Tokens and to the extent applicable, the blockchain upon which they function.  There is no guarantee that successful development will ever occur.

How Does Housa Work?

Housa starts with the core of the real estate market: the home seller.

Sellers begin by feeding their home's details into our listing tools. As the tools compare market data to your home's size, location, and other metrics, the Housa recommendation engine will return suggestions for the terms and commission structures to sell their house. 


Once the seller is happy with the terms they can publish the listing to the platform for agents and brokers to bid on the opportunity to represent the homeowner in selling the home on the open market. 


Homebuyers come to our platform to find houses at the right price in the right area and from the right person. Home sellers come to our platform with the desire to have more control of the commission and price they will get for their home when they sell. 

Now agents have an opportunity to compete for "ready to sell" homes, not leads. 

Once the listing is published to the marketplace, agents have access to the fee structure and desired price the seller is willing to accept. 


With the commission laid out, agents can then respond to offers, adjust terms, reply with marketing strategies, and select the right opportunities for them to list on the open market, offering their own deals to their respective networks. 


For brokers and agents, Housa will act as a data network and lead generator. Membership is monthly and all documentation is handled over the blockchain with smart contracts ensuring that everything is handled securely and with transparency. 




Images are prototype screens. App is still currently under development.

For sellers, Housa is the ultimate companion.

The platform's advanced listing tools and recommendation engine provide targeted, intelligent suggestions based on home info provided and market data. 


This lets sellers set their own terms and save money in the process.

And buyers can earn cash back rewards while searching and buying their home.

For buyers, Housa is an online real estate listing that connects them to the new home of their dreams. 


Buyers can search by price, location, and other standard housing tools, but can also access information about houses sold by specific agents or under specific terms. It gives homebuyers the best set of tools in the business to find their perfect house.


Housa allows you to earn cash back rewards even before you buy a home. Creating an account, referring friends, contacting homeowners & agents, are all earning opportunities. 


Instead of paying for ads, we pay our users to help us promote and grow the platform.

For service providers, access to traditional and next gen real estate consumers.


As the popularity and daily active users of the platform evolves, we will begin to offer opportunities for industry professionals to purchase advertising, native content, and sponsorship opportunities. Service providers can use earned tokens or buy from token holders on exchanges to purchase services on the platform. Housa is preparing for the next generation home buyer and creating new experiences and opportunities to connect to a modern, tech-savvy, digital native buying audience. 


Blockchain, a technology evolution for the masses.

We believe there's no better way to bring real estate into the 21st century than with the power of blockchain. Blockchain enables better transactional transparency and security through automated immutable smart contracts and security tokens. Blockchain will be the best way to bring together the tools people need to sell their houses with the new decentralized future.


Development Stage

Housa currently has teams focused of various aspects of the platform and services. Our engineering and blockchain developers are currently researching and solving different technology integrations to identify the most efficient and cost effective blockchains (Ethereum, EOS, etc.) to allow us to drive costs down. Our UX design and front end engineers are working on seamlessly integrating the blockchain interfaces into a more friendly consumer experience. 


Our team has been working on our online real estate search capabilities and we have successfully built out the ability to ingest MLS data into our databases and into the UI of the application. We currently have a working desktop, mobile, and android prototype with live property data, search, mortgage calculators, integration with Coinbase APIs, and account creation functionality using OAuth 2.0, the industry standard protocol for authorization. 


Our blockchain integrations have been progressing very well as the team has setup up the servers that sync local data with test nodes, 

verified transactions and certificate validation from Ethereum sites, as well as built out backend environments to create and verify smart contracts. Our team has successfully executed a key aspect of our decentralized storage strategy with the implementation of IPFS. This protocol and network helps us move closer towards peer-to-peer storage and sharing large amounts of data with transaction verification via blockchain.

Invest in Housa today. Invest in the future of real estate.


Housing is one of the fundamental necessities of life. Everyone needs a house, real estate is never going to go away. But it doesn't do its job right now. Too few people at the top control too great a percentage of the market and it simply doesn't work for consumers and individuals. It is broken and it needs to be fixed and made ready for the future. 


We created Housa to set the real estate market right and return the power back to the hands of the people who need and deserve it, homeowners. We also created Housa so that even the smallest agent or broker could stand beside the biggest and compete just the same. We created Housa to make housing better for everyone. 


This is your chance to make that a reality.
