It’s no secret that tech-based iBuying has hit a rough patch. While fast offers to cash out seem like an attractive proposition, iBuyers that rely too much on algorithms to make cash offers on homes miss out on a lot of details. This results in “too good to be true” bait and switch offers, or taking back an offer and leaving a home seller scrambling for a solution.
There is a BIG difference when you integrate a real human expert into the equation, which is why Marketplace Homes has succeeded in this area while other competitors have scaled back. Therefore, we decided to AI generate real estate agents to represent some of today’s active (and defunct) tech-based iBuyers. How “human” do these agents look? Let’s have a little bit of fun with AI today.
Whew, AI really took that literally. Opendoor’s agent is pushing their way through a door, which has a very unusual deadbolt and lock system.
Then, you get another one where a headless real estate agent is walking through a floating door… interesting.
Look into those eyes! AI got some branding in there, albeit with terrible spelling, but this one is not that bad. Just not good either…
This one has a house for a head… how interesting!
I’m not sure why this real estate agent has a snake, belt, or eel in her hand, or why her nametag is giant and says “HOOK”, but it’s good to see a smile that is sort of human. Sort of.
I don’t know about you, but the signs in these AI-generated images remind me of how words appear scrambled in dreams.
Of all the AI-generated images so far, this one isn’t that bad. Seems semi-approachable, knowledgable, and the branding is almost on point.
Zillow Offers had a good run, but it ended up closing its doors in the second half of 2021. This sign is very confusing but it does remind me of Zillow somehow…
All I can keep on saying to myself is “Zow!” and I’m now wondering how we can turn it into a word.
The Grand Finale
Imagine this team taking care of your home sale!
Meanwhile, here is how AI rendered Marketplace Homes:
You may not be able to read the sign, but you don’t need to when you find out that Marketplace Homes puts human brains into the equation when giving you a cash offer for your home. We use tech to get some groundwork done, but the rest of the valuation is done by seasoned agents backed with solid data.
