Zillow Reopens 6 More iBuyer Markets

Zillow announced Tuesday that it is resuming its iBuyer program in six additional markets – bringing the total to 15 – after shutting it down in all markets at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Zillow is reopening Zillow Offers in Atlanta, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, San Diego and Sacramento. Previously, Zillow Offers opened up in Portland, Oregon; Nashville; Denver; Fort Collins, Colorado; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Raleigh; Charlotte; Phoenix; and Tucson, Arizona.

The company paused buying homes in the 24 markets where Zillow Offers operates on March 23 in response to housing market uncertainty and public health concerns.

“Our goal at Zillow is to help people navigate what can be a stressful and complex process, and with Zillow Offers, give them a way to skip over a lot of the hassles and challenges of selling a home today,” Zillow President Jeremy Wacksman said. “People still want – and need to – move. With new digital tools and health protocols, Zillow Offers can help people safely unlock the next stage of their lives with greater certainty, control and convenience.”

When fully operational, Zillow Offers operates in 24 markets.
