BOULDER, Colo. – RealEstateRama – Oct. 14, 2020 – zavvie, the first end-to-end iBuyer platform for real estate brokerages, is teaming with John L. Scott Real Estate, one of the top 20 residential real estate brands in the nation, to power John L. Scott’s new Instant PurchaseTM Plus+ program. Debuting in the Portland, Oregon market first, Instant Purchase Plus+ gives local homeowners access to all-cash offers from iBuyers that are currently purchasing homes in their market.
“Tech-savvy Portland homeowners have more choices at their fingertips when considering selling than ever before,” said John L. Scott chairman & CEO J. Lennox Scott. “Our suite of programs gives local sellers a range of options, including working with an iBuyer through Instant Purchase Plus+ if it’s right for them.”
Lane Hornung, zavvie co-founder and CEO said, “Homeowners want to work with a trusted local expert when they decide to sell, and they want to see all of their options. By teaming with John L. Scott to create Instant Purchase Plus+, we make sure that John L. Scott broker associates remain at the center of the transaction. They have the tools to help homeowners compare all their options when selling, including accepting an all-cash offer from an iBuyer.”
iBuyer research shows that 41 percent of all sellers would consider an iBuyer offer. Among the homeowners who would consider an iBuyer offer, 92 percent still want to be represented by a licensed real estate professional.
Instant Purchase Plus+ helps Portland homeowners see what it means to sell their home to an iBuyer and sell their home on the open market. After reviewing their selling options, a homeowner can make a decision with maximum confidence, including choosing not to sell, according to John L. Scott.
