Break out the party hats and blow up the balloons! We can’t believe it, but we’re already celebrating Offerpad’s first full year of service to home sellers and buyers in Jacksonville, Florida and Birmingham, Alabama!
We first launched our real estate solutions in Alabama and along the First Coast in January 2020. With a previously established foothold in Florida in the Orlando and Tampa markets, expanding Offerpad’s operations into Jacksonville was a natural fit, while moving into the bustling Birmingham market marked our first foray into the sweet homes of Alabama.
Here’s what’s been happening over the last 12 months in both markets.
While snow in northern Florida is a rarity, what’s becoming more common are requests from area home sellers for instant cash offers on their homes. Compared to when we opened up in Jax just one short year ago, we’re fielding many more home offer requests from people looking for a better way to sell their home. With predictions that the median price of an existing home in the area is expected to increase this year well above the national average increase of 5.7 % – Jacksonville is proving to be one of our most active markets, just behind Phoenix and Raleigh – two of the highest performing real estate markets in the country right now. (Way to go home sellers in Jacksonville!)
We’ve seen a similar increase in offer requests and purchases in Birmingham, where even more additional home sellers are now coming to Offerpad.com to get an EXPRESS cash offer on their home. With home values continuing to grow (according to the Birmingham Association of Realtors, home price appreciation grew by 14.7% in 2020!), we look forward to helping even more homeowners this year as more people get to know us and the many advantages of selling a home to Offerpad.
Here’s just one advantage in the highly competitive Jacksonville and Birmingham markets – or wherever you live. If you’re looking to buy a home in today’s seller’s market, money talks. And with 19% of existing home sales now all-cash deals having a cash offer in hand if you’re selling a home can definitely give you the upper hand when making an offer on a new one. Visit Offerpad.com to request a cash offer today and learn about all of the advantages of selling and buying a home with us.
Along with the explosive real estate markets in Birmingham and Jacksonville, Offerpad continues to grow and expand its market reach to serve more communities in both metro areas. We’re now helping home sellers in over 30 cities and towns in and around Birmingham, including Leeds, Kimberly, Alabaster and Dixiana. We’re also seeing a lot of activity and interest in our customized real estate solutions in places like Bessemer, where the real estate and job markets – with newly opened Amazon and Mercedes facilities – continue to grow rapidly; Hoover, considered a very desirable location; and Center Point, where buyers are attracted by its top school systems.
Out of the gate our Jacksonville operations already had one of the widest footprints among iBuyers in the area. We launched last year in communities outside of Jacksonville proper such as Yulee and as far out as Macclenny. Currently, we’re in 44 cities and towns in the Jacksonville market. Offerpad’s services are now available from Fernandina Beach down to St. Augustine. Some of our busiest areas in the Jacksonville area include Arlington, Baymeadows, Fleming Island, Green Cove Springs, Middleburg, Orange Park and Southside.

With the real estate market showing no signs of slowing down, as we head into our second year in Birmingham and Jacksonville we’re looking forward to growing our fan base in both markets, especially with those of you who are racing fans. If you haven’t heard, Offerpad is a primary sponsor this year of NASCAR drivers Denny Hamlin and Harrison Burton. (How cool is that??!!) We’re super excited that you’ll be able to see our logo on the #11 and #20 Joe Gibbs Racing team cars as they zip around all the super speedways in the 2021 NASCAR Cup and Xfinity series. In fact, NASCAR fans in the Birmingham area can catch our new wrap on Harrison’s #20 Toyota Supra at Talladega on April 24. And for those of you in Jacksonville, we’ll be back in Daytona where you can see Harrison again on August 27.

Bonus: A little anniversary trivia for you. Do you know why Jacksonville is called the First Coast? The name refers both to the area’s geographic status as the “first coast” that many visitors reach when entering Florida, as well as to the region’s history as the first place in the continental United States to see European contact and settlement. Feel free to impress your friends on your next Zoom call.
