FIRST QUICK-CASH HOME SALE TRANSACTION IN ATLANTA PILOT CLOSES USING NEW CATALIST PROGRAM

cataLIST launched in early November in Atlanta, one of three pilot markets for the platform

ATLANTA (December 20, 2018) – cataLIST Properties, LLC, a subsidiary of Home Partners of America, in collaboration with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Atlanta, has facilitated the first home closing of the Atlanta pilot through the cataLIST platform. cataLIST is a quick-cash sale option for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage affiliated sales agents to offer to consumers looking to sell their homes.

The cataLIST program launched in early November in Atlanta, one of the three markets to host the pilot program. The program is available to NRT’s Coldwell Banker branded operations. NRT is the parent company of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Atlanta.

Christopher Trice, an affiliated sales associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Atlanta, facilitated the first transaction through cataLIST. When Trice was first educated on the upcoming program launch, he was preparing to list his client’s property in Douglasville, Georgia. His clients, the Sanders, were in the process of moving out of the home prior to listing the property, so the home would be vacant throughout the winter until it sold. Trice knew that the Sanders’ needed a timely sale without having to spend money on property updates, so he introduced them to the cataLIST program. The Sanders’ decided to try the platform and asked Trice to submit an offer request.

“The quick cash offer came back extremely close to what I figured would be an appropriate market price for the Sanders’ home,” said Trice. “The sellers decided to take the offer and were able to close quickly without having the home sit vacant or spending any money on repairs.”

According to Laura Rittenberg, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Atlanta, “We’re extremely excited about the early interest in cataLIST. The program is off to a great start with the first home sale concluding smoothly and we’re looking forward to more consumers utilizing the benefits of the platform.”

The cataLIST team will renovate the home based on need and will re-list the property as soon as possible. Trice will again serve as the listing agent once renovations are complete.

The cataLIST program is currently available for qualifying homes in many communities in the Greater Atlanta area. Ask a Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage affiliated agent to see if cataLIST is available for a particular property.
