Data-Driven Home Platform Kukun Expands Partnership With Digital Personal Finance Company SoFi
Kukun, the leading company in property data and predictive analytics for home renovations, announced today that SoFi would integrate the new Kukun Digital Cost Estimator into the SoFi app through Relay, SoFi's financial management tool. This expansion builds on SoFi and Kukun's existing partnership, which began in 2018 when SoFi started offering Kukun and SoFi's Home Improvement Cost Calculator products to its clients. In addition, Kukun offers Relay users property data, photos, and property values using Automated Valuation Models (AVM) for individuals interested in learning more about specific home investments.

Relay will enable users to monitor the value of the owned real estate and handle different financial aspects related to the home by integrating Kukun's Property Tracking feature. Relay aspires to be the one-stop shop for SoFi members seeking a comprehensive understanding of their money. Real estate is often the most important financial investment, making it a crucial asset to monitor and manage.

Kukun's most recent Cost Estimator is now available on Relay, allowing consumers better manage their remodeling budgets for the greatest possible outcome, increasing the investment value of their homes.

Kukun will supply SoFi with Automated Valuation Models (AVM) and images and improve its existing digital estimator under the contract terms. The enhanced tool will include new rooms such as a home gym and an office and a real-time assessment of the return on investment (ROI) of any remodeling project.
