TUCSON, April 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- (NASDAQ: RDFN) -- RedfinNow has expanded to the Tucson metro area and reopened in Las Vegas after temporarily pausing operations there due to the pandemic. RedfinNow is the iBuying service from Redfin (www.redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage, which gives homeowners a convenient new way to sell. Sellers can request a cash offer directly from Redfin and sell without the hassle of fixing up their homes or clearing out for open houses and private showings.
"RedfinNow gives homeowners certainty and control over exactly when they sell with a cash offer that lets them avoid the hassle of getting their home ready for the market and dealing with open houses and home tours," said Jason Aleem, vice president of RedfinNow. "We're seeing record-high competition and price growth for homes right now, but the red-hot housing market is a double-edged sword for sellers who are also trying to buy. RedfinNow makes it easy for people to get the money from their current home to buy their next and line up the closings so they only have to move once."
RedfinNow is available today to consumers in 22 markets in eight states and the District of Columbia. Expanding RedfinNow is part of Redfin's strategy to give homeowners a complete real estate solution with multiple ways to sell their home and technology to make the process simple. For sellers who prefer to list their home on the open market, Redfin's local real estate agents provide a full-service offering for a listing fee as low as 1%.
To request a cash offer, homeowners visit www.redfin.com/now, type in their address and provide some basic information about their home. RedfinNow uses local insight and its proprietary machine-learning algorithms to make a competitive cash offer based on the home's location, condition and the cost of repairs. Sellers can pick their closing date between 10 and 90 days from accepting Redfin's offer.
Once RedfinNow owns a home, it makes updates and then lists the home for sale on the open market. Redfin makes it easy for buyers to safely tour RedfinNow listings without an appointment. Buyers can unlock the door of most RedfinNow homes with the Redfin app and self-tour seven days a week, from 8 am to 8 pm, with or without an agent.
In Las Vegas and Tucson, the company is initially making offers on homes that fit the following parameters and will expand to additional neighborhoods and property types over time. The parameters are subject to change:
Las Vegas: Single family homes in Henderson, Southwest Las Vegas and Summerlin.
Tucson: Single family homes, townhomes and condos in Tucson as well as Marana, Benson and Saddlebrooke.
