Acre simplifies home-buying
Brokers are an important part of getting the best deal on your mortgage and insurance, and they help you navigate the process of buying a home. However, they’re often limited by tools that are outdated. These tools don't use existing customer data, so you have to constantly provide the same information over and over again.
We make the process easier by:
Putting users first
We’ve designed our platform around the users it serves. By putting home buyers and brokers at the heart of its design, Acre is building the best home buying experience in the market.
There’s an unchangeable ledger of all actions so things are never out of sync. The requirements, documents, and rules change to match the product being sold, so there’s never any wasted energy.
Protection, home insurance, and conveyancing, are all included in the journey. And if a client decides later on they want to buy one of these through their broker, they won’t need to start the advice process over again in a new tool.
