Zillow has expanded its home buying and selling service into the Denver metro area. The other markets where it is available are Phoenix, Las Vegas and Atlanta. They're also planning on expanding into North Carolina.
Zillow is attempting to lure home sellers with this being the "convenient" way to sell your home. In reality, it's very similar to trading in your car at a dealership and knowing you will get less money than you would on the open market. The difference here is instead of getting maybe $3,000 less for your car, you're going to be getting probably in the neighborhood of $20,000 or more less for your home.
Where Zillow really makes its money is through real estate agents who pay to be one of Zillow's "Premiere Agents". And that is who they'll refer you to if you decide not to take their cash offer for your home.
If you're thinking about selling and want to get the most money for your home,
I would love to sit down and show you how we can make that happen.
