In our latest real estate tech entrepreneur interview, we’re speaking with Daniel Shaked from Home365.
Without further ado…
Who are you and what do you do?
I am the CEO and Founder of Home365. We are a new breed of property management companies which leverages quite a bit of technology and artificial intelligence to make the entire process of owning real estate much more profitable, predictable and hassle free. First, we conveniently bundle a multitude of services for a one-rate fee, including management fees, repairs, maintenance, tenant placement and rent loss due to vacancies. To generate this fee, we look at the various data points of the home including the age, location, renovations, appliances, etc. But we also use this data and a series of sensors throughout the home to monitor systems so that we can predict any major issues and be proactive with maintenance. This saves landlords up to 50-percent in maintenances costs traditionally paid.
What problem does your product/service solve?
What we are really doing is offering refined communication between all the parties involved and improving customer service. Tenants, landlords and service providers communicate through Home365’s own app, which uses intuitive technology to report maintenance issues schedule repair visits and track the process from beginning to end. Tenants also have the ability to send video of the problem directly to the service provider. After scheduling an appointment, the tenants can track the movement of the maintenance worker through a map feature to save time and frustration. All fees are covered by Home365 without any additional cost to the property owner.
What are you most excited about right now?
I am most excited about our recent launch into the Las Vegas market which has a large number of property owners. We acquired Pangea Realty & Property Management, a Las Vegas company that currently owns over 300 single-family homes in Southern Nevada to begin our service.
What’s next for you?
My next step is to acquire more properties to use our service. My company is actively looking at deals in Florida, Texas and California.
What’s a cause you’re passionate about and why?
I’m really big on working with young entrepreneurs to get their ideas and businesses off the ground. I think it’s important to support the next generation pursuing new ideas. Most new businesses don’t make it, so it’s important for me to help them keep moving forward until they find the one that does. The momentum we have right now to help those ideas move to next steps is incredible.
