Zillow, Opendoor announce multi-year partnership
Home sellers visiting Zillow will be able to request an Opendoor offer
SEATTLE and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow, Inc. (Nasdaq: Z and ZG) and Opendoor Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: OPEN) have announced a multi-year partnership that combines two category leaders to transform how people start their move. The partnership will allow home sellers on the Zillow platform to seamlessly request an Opendoor offer to sell their home.
Selling a home can be full of uncertainty for many consumers who would rather focus on their next chapter than on the stresses of moving. Potential sellers on Zillow apps and sites may request and view an offer directly from Opendoor and easily compare it to an open-market sale using a real estate agent. Opendoor offers will be available on Zillow, and customers will be able to use the service as a standalone offering or package it with other Zillow home shopping services such as financing, closing and agent selection. Additionally, Zillow customers will be able to work with a licensed Zillow advisor who will serve as a helpful guide in understanding these options.
"Zillow is the most visited brand in online real estate. As we bring the housing super app to life, we're empowering our millions of visitors to understand all their options and transact in the way that best meets their housing needs," said Zillow Chief Operating Officer, Jeremy Wacksman. "We know choice is important for customers and they can make the best decision when they see all of their selling options up front — including selling on the open market with a Zillow Premier Agent partner and getting a cash offer from Opendoor. This exclusive partnership will pair Zillow's audience and brand power with Opendoor's selling solution in one easy place, so customers can evaluate their selling options and easily package it with other Zillow services to buy and finance their next home."
"At Opendoor, we're working to turn what is often viewed as one of life's most stressful moments — the home move — into an e-commerce experience that's simple, certain and fast. By bringing together Zillow's market-leading audience and Opendoor's e-commerce platform, more consumers will have the option to sell to Opendoor and save themselves the stress and uncertainty of a traditional sale process," said Opendoor President Andrew Low Ah ee. "For parents looking to upsize, a young professional moving for a new job, and millions of others who regularly use Zillow to explore their home selling options, we will provide them with the ability to move with a tap of a button."
Zillow and Opendoor are working together to launch this new product experience with the goal of serving shared customers nationwide in the coming months and years.
