Prevu, a NYC-based customer-focused digital home buying platform, closed a $2m seed funding round.
The round was led by Corigin Ventures, with participation from Kairos and AVG Basecamp Fund. In conjunction with the funding, Ryan Freedman, General Partner at Corigin, joined Prevu’s Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its engineering team to further enhance its technology platform and expand to new geographic markets.
Led by Chase Marsh and Thomas Kutzman, Prevu is a real estate technology company which allows buyers to search, offer and save time and money when they buy a home.
The Smart Buyer™ platform offers buyers the tools and advice needed to guide them through the early phases of the process. The company’s expert agents answer questions along the way and step in during the last mile, assisting buyers to schedule a tour, make an offer, negotiate a purchase and close on a transaction – all through the system.
Prevu passes two-thirds of its commission back to each buyer who completes a purchase on the platform, delivering a rebate of up to 2 percent.
The company currently operates in the New York Metropolitan Area and Connecticut.
