Zillow brings Instant Offers to Atlanta

by Rincey Abraham

Zillow announced that it will be expanding its Zillow Offers program to Atlanta, making it the third market in the country where the service is available. Through its Offers program, Zillow buys homes, prepares them for showings and lists them for resale.

Homeowners who are looking to sell their homes quickly can request a free cash offer from Zillow. If the offer is accepted, the homeowner chooses the closing date and Zillow provides the home inspection.

Zillow will be partnering with two local brokerages at its launch: Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Georgia Properties and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers. The local brokerages will be able to acquire new seller leads as a part of Zillow Offers and sellers who request an offer but decide to sell their home traditionally will be connected with these local brokerages.

Zillow Offers is currently available in Phoenix and Las Vegas and the company hopes to open in Denver later this year.

“In the few short months Zillow Offers has been operating in our first two markets, we’ve seen strong interest from home sellers. We have heard how valuable it is to them to be able to sell on their timeline, with transparency and certainty,” said Zillow Brand President Jeremy Wacksman. “We’re excited to bring Zillow Offers to Atlanta-area homeowners and empower them with more control, convenience and certainty during the home-selling process.”
