The group’s Zavvie program allows sellers to compare different sell options, including cash offers from iBuyers and EasyKnock’s MoveAbility.
Colorado-based brokerage group launched The Group Guaranteed Offer, a Zavvie-operated platform for home sellers interested in bridging loans and cash offers from some of the leading iBuyers including Zillow, RedfinNow and Opendoor.
“The Group Guaranteed Offer program is a one-stop shop for home sellers in Northern Colorado,” said Lane Hornung, Co-Founder and CEO of Zavvie, in a prepared statement. “They lead the market for sellers by offering iBuyer and Bridge options, providing the latest home selling options available with the guidance and expertise of a trusted, knowledgeable local representative.”
Zavvie, the self-proclaimed “Kayak of iBuying,” offers home retailers instant offers from iBuyers HomeGo, HomeVestors, Zillow, RedfinNow, Wedgewood and Opendoor, a traditional open market offer and an option to purchase before sale through EasyKnock’s MoveAbility product.
To get started, home sellers need to provide their address, contact information, and insights into the condition of the interior and exterior of their home, with an emphasis on the kitchen and main bathroom. Within 72 hours you will receive offers to review with your listing agent, who works with the iBuyer or EasyKnock to schedule a personal inspection or to start the process for listing the house on the open market.
Following the inspection, the group said home sellers can expect iBuyer deals to close within a week. However, sellers can choose a period of up to 90 days. In the meantime, EasyKnock has 16 days to complete a MoveAbility contract that includes a purchase agreement, due diligence, and a six month rental option to give sellers more time to look for a new home.
Whichever option they choose, group president Brandon Wells said it is about providing home vendors with the agent knowledge and support they need to sell successfully.
“Homeowners would love a cash offer when they’re ready to sell, and with the group’s guaranteed offer, they can see what an instant cash offer looks like once they’re ready to make their move,” Wells said in a statement Wednesday. “Today, sellers have more options to sell their home, and that’s why they want a realtor’s help in making the biggest financial decision of their lives.”
Zavvie’s Offer Optimizer platform is currently used by more than 60,000 real estate agents in 47 states and its largest clients include JPAR Real Estate, John L. Scott Real Estate, Allen Tate Realtors, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, and The Keyes Company.
