Are the IBuyer's here to stay? You decided, take a look.

What are iBuyers? 

Real estate companies that are relying on digital technology and algorithms have changed the landscape of the local real estate market. Known as an "instant buyer," iBuyer companies allow property owners to submit a profile about their home and receive a cash offer in a matter of moments. Their ability to streamline the real estate transaction and quickly provide sellers with the cash they need to move forward has allowed them to make a splash in the real estate industry. But, is this going to be the kind of change that redefines the real estate industry in the months and years ahead? Probably not. Let's take a look at why iBuyers may have already had their moment in the East Valley.

Using iBuyers to Purchase and Sell East Valley Homes

Partnering with an iBuyer does have its benefits. Some sellers are choosing to work with these companies because:

  • iBuyers provide them with an instant offer on their homes, and they can have cash in their account in a matter of days.
  • iBuyers allow sellers to sell their home as quickly as possible, without worrying about staging the property, scheduling showings or working through negotiations after an inspection.
  • iBuyers allow buyers to browse their inventory and schedule showings to see properties. Purchasing a home from an iBuyer is sometimes quicker, because the sellers are no longer involved in the process.

What may sound too good to be true probably is. In reality, there are several disadvantages to working with an iBuyer, such as:

  • iBuyers that purchase properties directly from sellers are going to offer them less for their property than a seller may be able to get through a traditional real estate transaction. 
  • Buyers who purchase from these companies are investing in properties that may not have been inspected or that may have issues that have gone unnoticed. 
  • The number of transactions that iBuyers are completing on a regular basis is declining swiftly. This means that there is very limited inventory available, and the best homes for sale in the East Valley are likely to be found on the MLS.

The Future of iBuyers in Chandler, Gilbert and the Surrounding East Valley

The onset of iBuyers took the real estate industry by storm, but in reality, these transactions represented a very small portion of sales in any given community across the country. While the number of iBuyer transactions in Chandler, Gilbert and throughout the East Valley was very high a year ago when the market was highly competitive, there are much fewer instances of iBuyer purchases and sales in this area right now.

Most real estate experts believe that the iBuying trend will begin to recede, while the technology that it relies on will continue to play a prominent role in the real estate industry. As buyers and sellers begin to navigate a new era in the real estate industry, one in which advanced technology and artificial intelligence may play a role, they will find that a reliable East Valley Realtor is still the best option for them.

The Benefits of Partnering with an East Valley Realtor

Cathy Carter RE/MAX Realtor is an award-winning real estate professional who has been serving clients in the East Valley for decades. She has an understanding of the local market conditions that most other professionals — and all types of technology — do not have, making her one of the best partners in your home search.

These are a few of the benefits you will enjoy when you hire an experienced, local East Valley Realtor for your home search: 

  • An East Valley real estate agent will be able to begin your search with an open and honest discussion. Your real estate agent will provide you with an accurate, data-based market analysis that showcases the current real estate market conditions. They will then listen to you as you describe your wants and needs for your next property, and they will be able to create a search that will reveal the properties that match your criteria.
  • A local real estate agent will be able to tweak your home search as needed, whereas technology-based transactions are only going to focus on the factors that are inputted. For instance, your real estate agent may see a property that offers the square footage you desire in a neighborhood that you love, but may also realize that it is located on a lot that will offer more noise pollution than you prefer. They will be able to eliminate that from your showing schedule, whereas an app-based transaction would automatically include it. 
  • An East Valley Realtor will be by your side throughout the entire transaction. Most buyers and sellers require support, advice and reassurance at different moments in the buying or selling process. It is important to work with a friendly and knowledgeable agent who will be able to offer you professional insight and actionable advice.
