Homie, a real estate technology company that has been changing the way homes are bought and sold since 2015, announced it has donated $14,000 to United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) as part of its partnership on the Homie Fund that helps Las Vegans most impacted by COVID-19 avoid home foreclosure and pay utility bills. Homie started the fund with a $10,000 donation in April and committed to providing $500 to the fund for every home bought or sold with the company in Southern Nevada through September, totaling $14,000 in the last quarter.
In addition, Homie continues to waive its $2,500 listing fee for those in Las Vegas who were directly impacted by the economic crisis stemming from the government shutdown and need to sell their homes.
