Zillow sold my phone number!
I basically quit posting on here a few years ago because I seriously don’t like the current format, but I felt compelled to write this post . I have a property that has appreciated nicely but needs a good bit of work (~$8,000) to go on the market. Anyway, I called Zillow to see if they would buy it as is. They gave me an official offer with the caveat they would have to inspect the property. After ten days they finally sent an inspector out. Six days later I received a final offer below what I was willing to accept. I tried to negotiate to no avail. I should add they had planned the closing for 6 December at least seven weeks after I first contacted them.
Since terminating the discussion I have received phone calls soliciting selling some of my properties from random buyers/wholesalers about several of my properties not just the one I offered to Zillow. Previously to contacting Zillow I had never gotten an unsolicited phone call or text about selling any of my properties.
Please be aware of this if you plan on contacting Zillow about selling your property.
