General
What is iBuyer?

An iBuyer is a company that uses technology to make an offer on your home instantly. iBuyers represent a dramatic shift in the way people are buying and selling homes, offering in many cases, a simpler, more convenient alternative to a traditional home sale.

How iBuyers operate varies, but the underlying idea is that a company estimates the value of your home and makes an offer. If you accept, they take on the burden of owning, marketing, and reselling the home. Depending on the service you choose, the benefit is the certainty of a firm sale and more control over when you move.

iBuyers are often confused with home flippers, yet the two business models can be very different. Home flippers want to profit from buying low and selling high. They often target distressed properties, make major renovations, and then sell at a significantly higher price.

On the other hand, iBuyers typically focus on homes in good condition. They aim to make an offer fair or slightly lower than fair value with what a reasonable buyer would pay. Ibuyer model is a service fee-based model.
