The iBuying business model is particularly popular in the U.S. Top names like Zillow and Redfin come to mind when a seller is looking to find the fastest way to move and get money for their home at the same time.
Lane Hornung, zavvie Co-Founder, and CEO, said:
"EasyKnock provides an immediate and hassle-free solution that helps homeowners tap into the value of their homes without having to move out. Now brokerages working with zavvie can empower their agents with an immediate advantage to win more listings by offering sellers the most options.”
With this partnership, zavvie will offer EasyKnock as part of its Offer Optimizer brokerage solution. EasyKnock has a number of services that allow for a more seamless move for homeowners. Its MoveAbility program valuates homes for those looking to sell quickly, and it offers sale-leaseback programs for single-family homes, townhomes, and condos.
Jarred Kessler, CEO and Co-Founder EasyKnock, said:
"EasyKnock and zavvie share a common vision of giving homeowners innovative options to make selling a home easier and faster. By working with zavvie, real estate agents can help consumers selling a home make their best decision by exploring all of their options."
Experts had predicted that iBuying would be put on hold or stopped entirely because of the pandemic. Many had halted services at the beginning of March to save money during such an uncertain time. What the pandemic showed us as an industry, is that it's a much more robust and buoyant business model than what was previously expected, making iBuying the perfect combatant for the problems that have since arisen from the pandemic and the current market crisis.
