It’s conclusive – the Zillow Offers program is only good for sellers who want/need BOTH quick cash and max convenience, because the cost is heavy.

TIPS TO HOME SELLERS:

  1. Don’t find yourself in a position where you NEED to cash out in a week.
  2. If you want max convenience, hire me and we’ll handle everything.
  3. Don’t get suckered by the bait-and-switch.

The word on the street is that they are pushing down the zestimates to help convince sellers to take less – and they have already bought 31 properties in San Diego.  Keep a record of your zestimates!

Zillow will likely be successful, however, because they don’t mind spending $100 million per year on advertising to promote their brand – and it works.

They give you just enough sexy to suck you in:
