OPPORTUNITY: Every month, more than 1 million US homebuyers attempt to search for homes by architectural style, yet no viable search solution exists for them. These style and design-conscious consumers are lost in the one-size-doesn’t-fit-all landscape of Zillow, realtor.com and Redfin. The Search With Style® (SWS) platform provides an appealing and powerful solution, with the potential to capture the hearts, minds and use of 12+ million homebuyers annually. In addition to looking for their dream home — be it a loft or craftsman — these buyers are looking for an intuitive, accurate interface and engaging content to fully immerse themselves in their desired lifestyles.
PROBLEM: Currently, homebuyers can try to search for available homes matching their desired architectural styles, but their results will be disappointing at best. Why? Because there are more than 600 disparate Multiple Listing Services (MLS) organizations nationwide — these are the databases that residential real estate agents use to upload information on homes for sale. Each is managed independently and each applies different criteria to define each architectural style. Additional issues occur as the MLS systems rely on realtors to accurately identify a home’s architectural style, which they fail to do nearly 50% of the time.
SOLUTION: Search With Style® (SWS) uses proprietary corrective algorithms, AI, and human curation to make finding an architecturally unique home a user experience that people come back to again and again. When you search by architectural style with SWS, results are accurate, quick and satisfying. Nook Real Estate in Newport Beach, a brokerage also owned by the owners of SWS is the SWS proof of concept lab, converting SWS leads at 2x industry average and a 4x+ revenue on PPC ads.
Frequently Asked Questions
When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Search With Style®. Once Search With Style® accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Search With Style® in exchange for your securities.

Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.
A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.
To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Search With Style® does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Search With Style® may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Search With Style® either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
