Three notable trends in home selling this summer

When our founders Brian Bair and Jerry Coleman teamed up to launch OfferPad, they had the audacious goal of providing busy people the ultimate home selling experience. Over the years, they’ve succeeded in delivering an alternative to the traditional (and stressful!) way to sell a home. Homeowners are empowered thanks to their newfound ability to request, receive and accept a competitive purchase offer from OfferPad — all online — any day they choose.

Bringing innovation to home selling

It’s been exciting to see how many individuals and families, and even the media, have embraced this new way of homeselling. In fact, Brian and Jerry were noted in this roundup of “4 Entrepreneurs Who Refreshed Stale Industries.”

And the innovation has only just begun.

Moving people with ease

Earlier this year, we also launched Free Local Move, a program that moves home sellers for free to their next home. This program, which provides customers a moving consultant, professional movers and a moving truck, has helped reduce the stress of moving and we’ve been completely amazed at the thank yous that have rolled in since. One OfferPad customer even called the program “the easiest buy-sell-move situation” she’d ever experienced.

It’s a seller’s market!

It is indeed a seller’s market, but that doesn’t change the fact that homeowners want the peace of mind of predictability and being able to direct the closing date of their home. OfferPad has been busy working with homeowners who are ready to take advantage of sales at their highest price and pace in more than a decade. According to Bair, millennials and Gen Xers buying for the first time, as well as a decreased supply of new homes, “has caused the resale market to flourish.”

If you’re hoping to find the perfect buyer for your home, don’t let it keep you up at night. Selling your home can be simple and stress-free. Instead, kick your feet up and enjoy the best summer has to offer.
