“According to SBA data, Homelight received a loan between $5 million and $10 million in April to retain 213 jobs. The San Francisco-based company, which declined to comment, has raised $164.5 million in debt and equity since 2012.”
HomeLight is a consumer brokering scheme that collects a blanket referral fee from random brokers across the US. As a broker, it has not helped a single consumer to buy or sell a single home, yet it has collected BILLIONS in illegal kickbacks from real estate transactions.
Allocation of consumers between real estate brokers should not result in a loan forgiveness, but an antitrust action. Truly appalling abuse of the Paycheck Protection Program.
