Zillow getting into the Home Buying and Selling Game

The real estate business is going through a huge change.  It has not hit Hoboken yet, but fear not – it’s coming.  Zillow is capitalized at over $9 billion.  That’s a lot of chedda!  They just announced that they are entering the “iBuyer” game.  You may not know what that is, yet, but you will.  Basically, the home seller will complete an information sheet about the property they wish to sell.  Zillow will price it and make an instant offer.  The entire transaction will be handled electronically (Zillow bought the transaction management software company, DotLoop, which we realtors all use).  Then Zillow will turn around and sell the home on-line.  They already rolled out a test in Orlando and Las Vegas and now they are expanding into other markets.  Zillow claims agents will be involved in the process though it’s not clear how.  What is crystal clear is that Zillow will charge those agents a hefty fee to participate.  Time will tell if this will be successful but I bet it is just a matter of time.  Stay tuned!
