And only 10% accept??

iBuyers companies continue to make the news with their gimmicks on offering a faster, more convenient way to sell a home. I just saw an interview with the Zillow CEO, stating, “…while people would come to our site (iBuyer) and we’d give them a good offer, only about 10% accepted the offer.”

Let that sink in…. “A good offer” and “Only 10% accepted”

I’ll bet that less than 5% of people who received offers actually sold their homes.  That’s less than 1/10 of what a good Realtor would get done for their clients.

There’s a whole LOT more to taking a property from “For Sale” to a successful closing than the technocrats understand.

Minimal Impact On 🏠 Housing Sales

Last week was quite a wintry ❄️ mess. We ended up with 8 inches here in Noblesville.

The Midwest storm did throw the 🏠 market off a little.

Mortgage rates are creeping up to 4 in recent months, and the Feds are looking to tighten it more. This will no doubt change Buyers purchasing capabilities as well as comfort level.

Bottom Line..there is still no inventory below 250K, so I am foreseeing minimal impact on 🏠 sales. If there were 20 offers on a home last quarter, it might be reduced to 10 this quarter. Seems like better odds for the  Buyer. So if you are on the fence about buying/selling, give me a call at 317-625-0655 to talk specifics.
