Zillow and Opendoor Technologies Inc. announced a multi-year partnership that will allow home sellers on the Zillow platform to seamlessly request an Opendoor offer to sell their home.
Potential sellers on Zillow apps and sites may request and view an offer directly from Opendoor and easily compare it to an open-market sale using a real estate agent. Opendoor offers will be available on Zillow, and customers will be able to use the service as a standalone offering or package it with other Zillow home shopping services such as financing, closing and agent selection. Additionally, Zillow customers will be able to work with a licensed Zillow advisor who will serve as a helpful guide in understanding these options, according to the press release.
“We know choice is important for customers and they can make the best decision when they see all of their selling options up front,” said Zillow Chief Operating Officer, Jeremy Wacksman.
“For parents looking to upsize, a young professional moving for a new job, and millions of others who regularly use Zillow to explore their home selling options, we will provide them with the ability to move with a tap of a button,” said Opendoor President Andrew Low Ah Kee.
The companies did not announce a timeframe for the launch.
