EFynch is an American Home Improvement and Communication platform located in Baltimore. The EFynch platform works to give homeowner more than a simple introduction which is common in the online home improvement industry. The two founders are working to give regular homeowners access to verified contractors and handymen along with the tools and processes that professional property managers use. The idea is that a majority of homeowners, especially first time home buyers, do not understand, or are weary of the hiring and management process so EFynch helps them overcome many of the obstacles but still capitalize on their social networks.
History[edit | edit source]
EFynch was founded in 2016 however went live in early 2017 to the Baltimore Public. and operated for its first 12 months as a local, bid competitive bid collection platform in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. Metro Areas. In the fall of 2017, EFynch signed an agreement with prominent real estate brokerage firm, Long and Foster and become the first online platform to partner with a major real estate firm in the United States.. In July 2018, EFynch announced plans to build on that partnership and launch a full property management software system designed for regular homeowners. The system would keep the existing competitive bidding platform but also add a communication system for talking shop with handymen, machine learning to guide homeowners through the hiring process, and social media integration in order to see recommendations without having to publicly post. At current, EFynch has nearly 3,000 members in Baltimore , and it expanding into Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, and eyeing it's next targets.
