Zillow makes homebuying and selling program available in Tampa Bay

by Candyd Mendoza22 Oct 2019

Zillow has announced that its iBuying service, Zillow Offers, is now available in the Tampa Bay region.

Since its inception last year, the homebuying program has launched in 21 markets across the United States. Zillow said it would continue to expand Zillow Offers to Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Fla., Los Angeles, Oklahoma City, and Tucson, Ariz., by mid-2020.

Zillow Offers purchases a seller’s house and then works with contractors to prep it for listing on the market. Additionally, Zillow partners with local brokers to represent it in each transaction.

The firm also offers mortgage lending services to homebuyers and sellers through its affiliate lender, Zillow Home Loans.

"With Zillow Offers, we're eliminating the pain points that disrupt sellers' lives, like coordinating repairs and showings, while giving them peace of mind on the timing and price," said Zillow Brand President Jeremy Wacksman. "We're excited to bring this service to the Tampa Bay area so homeowners can have a simpler, more enjoyable selling experience."
