iBuyers Hiding Reviews?

by | Oct 1, 2019 | Market Reports

I recently read an article on Inman News about iBuyers like Opendoor that are somehow hiding their reviews on Yelp and potentially other sites.

I didn’t believe it but when I went online I couldn’t find reviews!

If you’re considering selling directly to anyone without a Realtor chances are you are leaving money on the table and it might not be faster or easier either. Most iBuyers will still do inspections and likely ask for repairs or price reductions before closing.

The direct buyer model has been around forever (Think signs nailed to telephone poles that state: “We pay cash for homes!”). The new wave of direct buyers are focused online and re-branded as iBuyers. The process though is basically the same: The direct buyer makes an offer to buy the home for below market value and then re-sells the home for a profit. Many times the buyer will hire a realtor to help them sell for top dollar.

If you want to sell to an iBuyer you can still have an agent represent you so you have someone fighting for you. Remember the direct buyer is not your agent and is looking out for themselves.
