Greater Irvine Chamber Leaders Circle sponsor Zillow announced the addition of Zillow Offers to its real estate marketplace portfolio, which provides a new, hassle-free way to buy and sell eligible homes directly through Zillow.

Zillow Offers is now available to homeowners across a large portion of Southern California including Orange County.

“We know how difficult and stressful it can be to sell a home, so we are rebuilding the experience of buying and selling a home to make it a much simpler, smoother process,” said Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow brand president. “In the 20 months since we first introduced Zillow Offers, we’ve seen that there is a strong appetite for another option when it comes to selling a home. We’re thrilled to launch Zillow Offers in one of the largest markets in the country, and look forward to easing the friction and helping sellers move to the next stage of their life without the hassle and uncertainty of a traditional home sale.”

Through Zillow Offers, sellers have control over selling timelines and can choose a closing date that fits their schedule. Homeowners who request an offer from Zillow can expect a fair market value offer on their home.

After closing on a home, Zillow will take care of necessary repairs, working with local contractors to complete projects including painting, servicing HVAC units, and other work homeowners would carry out to prepare for selling. 

In just 19 months since Zillow Offers first launched in Phoenix, it has grown to a total of 22 markets across the country. The home-selling service will be available in Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Oklahoma City, and Tucson by the middle of 2020.
