HomeMatch was literally my Renovation Wishlist

HomeMatch is what I wished I had when I attempted to renovate my room.
โ€
Searching for the right Renovator was Frustrating ๐Ÿ˜ค
โ€
Here's my story...

Disclaimer: Yours may seem eerily similar :X

Part 1: Reno Anxiety

Sat down infront of my laptop. Didn't know where to start. Frantically googled. Started learning that the reno industry is kinda shady.

Got Anxious.
โ€
โ€
Overwhelmed by the vast numbers interior design firms out there making similar claims. How am I supposed to tell who's good and who's bad?

How we made that a reality

๐ŸŽ Wish 1: I want a Guidepost

When we started HomeMatch our first priority was being that guidepost in renovation: The Safest Way to meet Renovators. This is why we partnered with CaseTrust and only Match you with accredited Renovators.

Working with a CaseTrust Renovators is Safer because it protects you before, during and after renovation with:
1. 100% Deposit Guarantee
2. min. 12-months Warranty
3. Standard Contracts
4. Mediation Services

Part 2: Lots of Calls

Tried using 3 different renovation platforms that promised to simplify the search by recommending firms to me. Entered my details. And....

๐Ÿคจ Received about 18 calls from interior firms over the next 4 days.
It got me thinking "Why can't I choose my Renovators instead?" and "Why am I being assigned to seemingly random firms?"

How we made that a reality

๐ŸŽ Wish 2: I want to be in control of who calls me

You get to handpick a specific Renovator from a firm v.s. being randomly assigned to firms. And by having the power to choose, you're in control of who get to contact you.

No where else does it like us :)

Part 3: Time Wasted

Scheduled 7 meetings initially. Decided to schedule 3 more because I felt they didn't quite understand my needs and/or we couldn't vibe well.

Each meeting were approx. an hour long! ๐Ÿ˜”
โ€
Thankfully they were on Zoom because it was during COVID-19.

๐ŸŽ Wish 3: I want relevant recommendations only

How we made that a reality

We do not randomly match you with firms.

Our Matching Algorithm considers your lifestyle, aesthetic and working Preferences before Matching you with the most relevant Renovators.

No where else does this :)

๐ŸŽ Wish 4: I want to know who I'm meeting

How we made that a reality

At HomeMatch you can. You can review the individual profiles of the Renovators you're Matched with.

No where else does this :)

Chapter: Now

Eventually, I GAVEย UP and decided to shelve my reno plans for the time being.

But... I also decided to act on my wishlist and built the product of our dreams.
