Xpbids operating Homezze and Homezzepro reserves the right, in our sole discretion, to revise the Terms as necessary or appropriate. While we do our best to email Users of updates to our policies as a courtesy, it is your responsibility to review the Terms to stay informed. This page will always reflect the most current version of our Terms.
Through our platforms “Homezze” and “Homezzepro” XpBids, Inc. provides tools and features that individuals and businesses (“Clients”) and independent service professionals (“Service Professionals”) use to find, pay and track construction, home renovation, or other projects (“Labor”). Homezze nor Homezzepro is not in the business of providing any construction, home renovation, or other project services (“Labor”), and is not responsible for the quality and/or outcome of the work Labor or not provided by Service Professionals.

Service Professional(s) and Service Professional Businesses
Service Professionals are not employees, joint venturers, partners, agents or spokespersons of Homezze. They are compensated as independent contractors who set or confirm their own prices, provide their own equipment, and determine their own work schedule.
By creating and maintaining an account on the Platform, Service Professionals receive only the ability to use the Platform to access persons interested in receiving Labor and related tools, including but not limited to the ability to message those persons or schedule appointments, that facilitate the provision of Labor. Using the Platform does not guarantee that anyone will engage Service Professionals for Labor.
Homezze, as permitted by applicable laws, obtains reports regarding Service Professionals, which may include history of criminal convictions or sex offender registration, and we may limit, block, suspend, deactivate, or cancel a Service Professional’s account based on the results of such a check. As a Service Professional, you agree and authorize us to use your personal information, such as your full name and date of birth, to obtain such reports from Homezze by XpBids’ vendors.
Our Platform is only available to business entities and individuals at least 18 years of age who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. All references to “you” or “your,” as applicable, mean the person who accesses, uses, and/or participates in the Platform in any manner, and each of your heirs, assigns, and successors. If you use the Platform on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity, your acceptance of the Terms will be deemed an acceptance by that entity, and “you” and “your” herein shall refer to that entity, its directors, officers, employees, and agents.

Service Professionals otherwise agree to comply with all applicable laws, including the California Consumer Privacy Act, in their use of the Platform and any personal information obtained from the Platform.

During and after enrollment, Homezze allows Service Professionals to upload images and short videos describing the services they can provide. By enrolling, Service Professionals are allowing Homezze to use the images and videos to promote the Platform, as Homezze sees fit, without requiring further permission from the Service Professional.
You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, whether via email or through the Platform, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing, and consent to receive such electronic communications from us.

Fees, Service Charges and Escrow
Homezze collects fees from Service Professionals and Clients in these ways:
Homezze charges Service Professionals a percentage of the fees collected from Clients, in accordance with the following chart:
|$0 – $14,999||Ten Percent|
|$15,000 – $49,999||Seven Percent|
|$50,000 and greater||Five Percent|
Homezze charges clients a flat percentage of the bid amount they pay into escrow. The flat percentage is 3% of the amount deposited to escrow. This payment is collected immediately at the time Clients pay the bid amount into escrow and is non-refundable. I.e., if a project is canceled for any reason before completion, in general, Homezze will not refund this amount. It is up to Homezze’ discretion to refund this Client fee.
Homezze offers Service Professionals four types of membership:
Which provides free access to the Platform upon account registration at no cost to the Service Professional.
The Premium membership provides marketing advantages for Service Professionals to assist with seeking and acquiring projects by prospective clients, and a discount on the fees they must pay to Homezze. The Premium membership does not guarantee that the Service Professional will convert any projects, but rather provides priority access to bidding, by featuring Service Professional bids of Premium members before those of Basic members, and other benefits including (This is only currently available to Service professional businesses in the State of Ohio):
- Early Post Notification.
- Access to bidding list related to the project;
- Unlimited bid changes;
- Support and Account Management.
- Review of Bid history with an account manager; and
- Recommendation to improve client conversion rates
Premium membership costs $30.00 per month, which will be billed on the first day of every month.
The Premium discount only applies while Service Professionals maintain an active premium status. In the event that Service Professional stops paying for their Premium membership while a project is active, the Service Professional must pay any overdue membership fees to collect payment(s). Payments owed to the Service Professional will be held in escrow until the Service Professional pays overdue fees.
Homezzepro Business Membership:
Homezze offers service professionals a business membership as part of its subscription model. This subscription does not include benefits provided in the Basic Membership with exception of users in the State of Ohio. Business membership costs $60.00, refer to membership benefits.
Homezzepro Business Plus Membership:
Homezze offers service professionals a business membership as part of its subscription model. This subscription does not include benefits provided in the Basic Membership with exception of users in the State of Ohio. Business Plus membership costs $100.00, refer to membership benefits.
All members receive a first time Statement of Work (“SOW”) discount in the amount of 15% on the fee collected from the total price of the Project.
A Premium membership gives Service Professionals a recurring 15% discount on the fees they have to pay to Homezze, as follows:
|$0 – $14,999||Ten Percent|
|$15,000 – $49,999||Seven Percent|
|$50,000 and greater||Five Percent|
Homezze uses Stripe as Escrow services. Once a Client agrees to a Scope of Work from a Service Professional, Client pays the cost of the project into escrow, where it is held until the Client has reviewed and accepted a submitted phase(s). Please see the Cancellation and Refund section below for what happens when a project is canceled before completion, and the Project Life Cycle section for what happens if issues arise.
Some clients may choose to pursue loans with third party lenders, such as Lending Tree, Upgrade, Loandepot, Upstart, or Affirm, and other lenders to pay for projects. XpBids is not responsible for any of these loans.
Service Professionals will be subject to suspension and/or removal from the Platform, at the Platform’s discretion, if it is determined that the quality of Labor is egregiously and consistently below professional expectations or below the standard of the industry. Service Professionals and Clients will also be subject to suspension and/or removal from the Platform if it is determined that fraudulent practices were or are being employed while the project is in flight or incident of theft is reported and verified.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
All Users may seek to cancel or terminate their use of the Platform at any time they desire to do so, subject to these Terms. Termination of membership also triggers cancellation of any outstanding projects. Any owed fees or account balances will be due at that time and the User will be responsible for any such fees and be required to make prompt payment of such.
If a User has any outstanding projects and seeks termination or their account, XpBids will first commence up to 15-day review of your account and any fees you may owe or be owed. After this 15 day review period, XpBids will begin processing any refunds due, minus the cost of services already rendered or fees due.
IN GENERAL, IF A SERVICE PROFESSIONAL CANCELS A PROJECT BEFORE COMPLETION, DUE TO NO FAULT OF THE CLIENT, HOMEZZE POLICY IS FOR CONSUMERS TO RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY DEPOSITS LEFT IN ESCROW.
HOMEZZE CANNOT AND WILL NOT RESOLVE DISPUTES REGARDING ANY FUNDS ALREADY DISBURSED FROM ESCROW.
Cancellation of a project will automatically trigger: 1) up to 30-day review of any possible breach in the agreement stipulated in the Statement of Work (“SOW”), and (2) an automatic notification of the cancellation to the Client.
During the 30-day period, it is the Client and Service Professionals responsibility to communicate any issues regarding performance to Homezze. Homezze will attempt to resolve any issues related to breach as a courtesy, but both Clients and Service Professionals may choose to explore legal options available to them outside of these Terms to seek refunds. Service Professionals are aware that Clients may pursue damages against them outside of XpBids’ limited scope of coverage for counterparty risk.
Users agree that in no event will Homezze operated by Xpbids be liable or responsible for any funds disbursed to Service Professional or any funds refunded to Client.
During this review period, Homezze determines how to distribute any balances left in escrow. After completion of review, Homezze will trigger payment of any balance left in escrow as appropriate. Again, Homezze cannot and will not resolve disputes regarding any funds already disbursed from escrow.
In general, if a Client cancels a Project before completion, Homezze’ policy is for Clients to receive a refund of any deposits left in escrow, after Homezze has deducted its fees and any costs incurred by Service Professionals, prior to the cancellation. In general, the Client will owe payment to the Service Professional for any milestones for which activity is underway. Consequently, Clients should think carefully about canceling a project while a milestone is underway.
Client will be responsible for paying for all work and purchased materials up to the time of cancellation and Client will receive any such unused materials upon cancellation.
Homezze permits previously terminated Users to restore their membership, subject to the exception of those Users who Homezze removed from the Platform for violation of these Terms, and Homezze discretion.
For Users that have paid premium membership fees, these fees shall be non-refundable even if the User is removed from the Platform prior to the expiration of the premium membership period.
Statement of Work (“SOW”)
The SOW refers to the Statement of Work the Service Professional submits to the Client as a proposal of all of the work to be performed for the Project. This is akin to a bid. The submission of an SOW by a service professional is not representative of any engagement or agreement Homezze has with the client. The SOW is a tool leveraged by the Service Professional and the Client to outline their intent to enter into an agreement for the respective project. The SOW is not an agreement between Homezze and any other party.
Project Life Cycle
Each Project has a life cycle divided into one or more phases/ Task(s) that is driven by the respective SOW the Service Professional and Client agreed upon. When Service Professional completes a phase, the Client is given the agreed upon (in the SOW) time of days to review that phase. Upon approval, funds are released from the balance in escrow and disbursed to the Service Professional. If the Client cancels the project before completion of the life cycle, the Service Professional will be paid the completed percentage of work as indicated in their personal project tracking dashboard. It is the Service Professional’s responsibility to make sure their project tracker is updated, and Homezze will not compensate Service Professionals for portions of work completed or costs of materials incurred for which they did not update the project tracker before cancellation occurred. If the Client does not escalate issues regarding Labor provided for the Phase prior to the window elapsing, the funds will be automatically disbursed to the Service Professional.
A Client may pursue any damages outside of Homezze’ counterparty risk measures, which are limited to ensuring only that phases and tasks were completed and tracked for efficiency, transparency and safe funds disbursement.
Please note that Homezze is not able to recoup any disbursements made to Service Professionals for phases that you have already approved disbursement. It is your responsibility to escalate issues to XpBids regarding Labor before approving disbursement.

Homezze operated by Xpbids is not responsible for transactions processed through its web and mobile applications. Homezze nor Homezzepro operated by Xpbids is not responsible for communication, estimation, quotes, deposit request, review and request for approval and payment transactions between service professionals and clients.
