ProxyPics is a photo delivering service where users can request a photo of a specific location for other users to complete, for a small fee.
Think of it as Uber for photos. The real-estate industry and lending process experience long delays because appraisers, real estate agents, and inspectors drive countless miles for a real-time photo of a property. ProxyPics crowd sources users already in the area to take the photo of the property and deliver within minutes. The company has a user base across the U.S. with close to 13,000 downloads. Urban markets have a completion rate of about 80% within the first six hours the job has been posted. ProxyPics can have these delivered throughout the day. What’s more, as the company’s user base continues to grow, the acceptance rate goes higher as the wait time lowers.
