Minneapolis-based BuyerCurious, an online real estate transaction platform, announced today completion of the final phase of its $1.75m first round Series A funding.
Launched nearly a year ago, the service enables prospective home buyers to create, transmit, and negotiate offers online. Buyers can direct offers to properties listed by agent, those that are for sale by owner, and even to owners of homes not presently on the market.
The startup had previously secured around $1.4m and the last leg included participation from Gopher Angels. BuyerCurious was also a semi-finalist in this years Minnesota Cup business plan competition.
“We’re excited about the traction we’re seeing and how that traction has translated into continued enthusiasm from both new and existing investors,” said founder and CEO Jim Lesinski. “We will be using the proceeds from the current round to further expand our service offering and to build industry partnerships, laying the groundwork for a strong marketing push in 2013.”
