Zillow Offers, the service by Zillow that allows homeowners to request cash offers for their homes directly from the Zillow marketplace, is coming to Riverside, California.
Riverside is the first market in California that Seattle-based Zillow is launching Zillow Offers. With the new service, Zillow offers to buy a seller's house, prepares it for showings and lists it for sale — all on the seller's timetable.
Zillow will be represented by local agents and brokerages when Zillow Offers launches in Riverside early next year.
The addition of Riverside expands Zillow Offers to eight cities nationwide. The program launched in Phoenix in April, and is also available in Las Vegas, Atlanta and Denver. The company will be launching the service in Charlotte, North Carolina this year, and in Raleigh, North Carolina and Houston this winter.
The program is part of an effort to simplify the home selling process and relieve some of the burdens and stresses of selling houses for owners.
"Many homeowners are trying to time the sale of their current home with the purchase of a new one, and with rising inventory, this process can become even more uncertain,” Zillow Brand President Jeremy Wacksman said in a statement. “Zillow Offers alleviates the stress and complexity that typically go along with selling a home, and we can't wait to begin helping Riverside homeowners early next year.”
