iBuyer agent: Time is money
Tell that to the 100,000 home sellers nationally who have already asked for offers from Zillow.
Ryan Boykin, a buying and selling agent for Zillow, said the company promises sellers certainty, along with no staging, no showings, no repairs and a flexible move-out timeline.
“For Zillow, time is money,” said Boykin, who said Zillow offers more certainty than buyers who might back out at the last minute. “When you work with Zillow Offers, the level of certainty that they’re going to move forward and purchase your home is 100 percent because they’ve already said, ‘Hey look, here’s the contract, we’ve signed the contract and now you’re choosing your timeline. That’s a lot stronger than a typical real estate contract which can fall out for any number of reasons.”
