Jacksonville’s Fastest Growing Brokerage Partners with zavvie’s Offer Optimizer to Maximize iBuyer Opportunities for Local Homeowners
Jacksonville, FL – December 19, 2019 – RealEstateRama – Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Lifestyles Realty, the fastest growing residential real estate brokerage in Jacksonville, announces the launch of a new iBuyer service. Lifestyles Realty’s new Offer Optimizer gives Jacksonville homeowners more ways to sell their homes than ever before.
“Homeowners in Duval, St Johns, Clay and Nassau Counties can now receive multiple offers on their home with a push of a button,” said Geoff Burt, an owner of Lifestyles Realty. “Our new Offer Optimizer, combined with the deep local knowledge and professional advice of a Lifestyles’ agent, helps homeowners make the best choices for their situations,” he added.
Burt explains that with its new Offer Optimizer, sellers are able to easily compare all of their options. They can sell their home on the open market, accept an iBuyer offer, or choose not to sell.
Jacksonville area sellers using Offer Optimizer at a push of a button receive a detailed breakdown of offers for leading iBuyer firms including Zillow Offfers and Opendoor, as well as a comparison to selling their home on the open market with Lifestyles Realty. These online firms are called iBuyers because they offer to “instantly buy” homes.
By offering the new iBuyer service, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Lifestyles Realty agents are gaining a local advantage in the marketplace by providing homeowners the ability to receive multiple offers instantly.
“Smart sellers want to explore every option,” said Dan McCarthy, Broker/Owner at Lifestyles Realty. “But they also want the help of a professional agent in navigating any real estate transaction, including selling to an iBuyer. Now we are offering something every agent wants: a way to tap into the iBuyer opportunity in the market today.”
A recent iBuyer study found that 41 percent of all sellers would consider an iBuyer offer. Among those considering an iBuyer offer, 92 percent still want to be represented by a professional REALTOR®.
“The popularity of the iBuyer movement is growing,” McCarthy noted. “And because more people than ever are using a real estate agent to sell their home, Offer Optimizer is giving an opportunity for our agents to offer even more value to our clients.”
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Lifestyles Realty is known for its consumer-first philosophy. Lifestyles has created a different kind of real estate brokerage through an agent community with a commitment to providing a great experience from the awareness stage, through the purchase/sales process and well after the transaction closes.
Lane Hornung, CEO, and Founder of zavvie said, “Lifestyles Realty is known for thinking about what the customer wants and delivering it. By giving its agents the power of Offer Optimizer, they are responding to what consumers are asking for and raising the bar for how homes are sold in Jacksonville.”
