In today's episode of the Live UNREAL w/Glover U Podcast, Jeff takes a deep dive into marketing, talking about some of the biggest insights we've gained in over a decade of learning, failing, implementing, and shifting our own marketing strategy.  In this two-part series, you'll find out what doesn't work in marketing, what we need to be doing to set ourselves up for success, and how to start thinking like a marketing expert.  You'll also learn: The difference between the direct and indirect benefits of marketing Why branding and marketing are two completely different things  How to make sure all your marketing efforts flow together effortlessly Why every agent has the ability to put an iBuyer offer in front of the consumer    Quotes  A good marketing plan should be cohesive and build upon itself, fit together, and give the consumer a connected experience. -Jeff Glover   Marketing is not the end all, be all. It enhances everything else you do, the leads you're generating, and the conversations you're having. -Jeff Glover     Key Points  There are two benefits to marketing: the direct results and responses we get from specific campaigns or calls-to-action. Indirect marketing just enhances everything we're already doing, like prospecting and sending out mail. While we can't directly quantify it, it makes a huge difference in our visibility in our markets.  Most agents only look at marketing on a case-by-case basis, rather than one big picture that needs to flow together nicely. A marketing expert has a plan - they make sure their marketing activities aren't standalone pieces, but part of an overall plan.  When it comes to marketing, most agents are thinking in terms of 30 days. Plan on going for no less than 6-12 months before you see results in anything that you're doing in your marketing.

Add your email id here to get this directly to your inbox.Do subscribe over Apple Or Spotify podcast (Minimalist techie Or on Spotify ) or hear it over email you received through my subscription or on my website.This weekly newsletter is mostly about the article, books, videos etc. I read or watch or my views on different topics which revolves around my head during the week. Now, let us dive into this week’s reads.1. U.S Housing MarketThere is huge shortage of homes in USA, This is very much known since more than 2 years now. Current U.S Market is so tight, that house listed on the market is closed in less than a week. In my area, seen few of the home sold on 2nd day of their Listing becoming active. So any prospective buyer, specially first time home buyers are left out of this race. This resulted home prices way beyond on their year on year growth. Prices are so high, but still many are going ahead and buying them at premium prices. At stock market as many say, Paying high price for something now and assuming it will go high further without any data points is a speculation. Home Prices currently are in same boat.Other end, iBuyer concept ended up another hole in this process. iBuyer are organizations like Zillow, Redfin, Opendoor, who buy the houses from the market, flip them and then sell for profit. Zillow in recent days declared that it got the business wrong and its no longer revenue generating for them, as they bought so many home since last 2 years and now they are not able to sell the homes with a margin enough to run the business. Overall, housing market inventory issue is not getting resolved even in 2022 as projected by many economists.One has to make their life’s biggest investment within a week and in hot areas on the spot or less than a day. Zillow coming out of the business is a sign for buyers not to panic and go into buying now ? Let me know your thoughts.https://www.forbes.com/advisor/mortgages/housing-bubble-experts/ 2. Surgeon General warns of mental health 'epidemic' for kidsU.S Surgeon from State of Union, General Vivek Murthy has released a advisory in December of 2021 about the mental health epidemic for kids. 1 out 5 kids suffer depression and 1 out of 4 kids suffer anxiety, Year by year depression, hopelessness, suicide rates have been going up, Covid has added additional spike to it now. You can see the full advisory in below link,Protecting Youth Mental Health The U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory To add to fuel, Social media, Pop Culture bombard young kids with their media content, telling them they are not good looking enough, popular enough, smart enough or rich enough. To take Action,All have to recognize that mental health is an essential part of overall health. Mental health conditions are real, common, and treatable, and people experiencing mental health challenges deserve support, compassion, and care, not stigma and shame. Mental health is no less important than physical health. And that must be reflected in our how we communicate about and prioritize mental health.Ensure that every child has access to high-quality, affordable, and culturally competent mental health care. Care should be tailored to children’s developmental stages and health needs, and available in primary care practices, schools, and other community-based settings. In regular day to day living as well, every child should have quality access to childcare, education, Healthy food, health care, stable housing, be in safe neighborhoods. Its call for action for every adult there, to have this better future for every kid. For more insights, Do read the Advisory for sure. 3. Labor Shortage continues to 2022 as wellIn 2021, the biggest buzz word over LinkedIn and over all workplaces was “The Great Resignation”. Pandemic has changed a wave against the employer by employees. The way number of people have quit jobs or not ready to join back or come back to offices, Quitting even without an job offer to get out of toxic work culture, you name it, Resignations were everywhere in 2021. The trend is going to continue in 2022 as well, it will be a job seeker market. In 2021, it was majorly for tech jobs, science, medical professional got the high paychecks for switching employers, as we move into 2022, this trend will go into other sectors as well, Food Industry is my top list and so does the minimum pay jobs will end up following Amazon , Walmart route, that is increasing pay for entry level or minimum pay jobs , paying for education and additional bonuses to have employees on their side. Labor market is still tight, the reason for my choice of food industry was, Covid is going stay here, people who were fired during 2020 lockdown or were working 80 hours a week with minimal staff were highly burned out. So these jobs for sure no longer seen as secured jobs. So Food Industry if needs to survive in 2022, they have no option, so have to run the tide along with the job seeker. Higher Pay, Joining Bonuses, Promotions, 40hrs a week schedules, Diversity Equity and Inclusion, Higher Education support from employer, Health insurance all would need to have their staff size back to pre-pandemic level. In US altogether a different problem, There are plenty of jobs on the market, but not many are looking to come back to workforce. Many who lost their jobs due to Covid Lockdown were either lived on their life savings or government given unemployment checks. During this non-working time, many realized how much their life is spent in work , which impacted their health, stress level, no work life balance jobs all these came to limelight to them. So many are not looking to join same jobs which they left in 2021. So people are adding additional skills to look for job opportunity in different sectors than compared to sector they worked prior to Pandemic. So there will be businesses who will find very hard to find their new employees. Also 2021 has more deaths due to Covid compared to 2020, So many had Covid or taking care of their loved one with Covid or child care by being at home and older population who got retired early also adds up. See this Washington Post article specially for US job market, https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2021/12/29/job-market-2021/That is all for this week.

In today's episode of the Live Unreal w/Glover U Podcast, we continue our definitive list of 21 ways to take 21 listings, the exact methods you can use to grow your business in the new year, and ways to get ahead of the competition in your market. Our list is packed with fresh tactics backed up by the results other agents are getting in their markets.  In order to keep generating listings, we have to stay up to date on new sources of listings and what the consumer expects from the real estate experience. Jeff shares with us 5 of the best strategies to put in action in 2022. You'll also learn: 4 types of databases every agent needs to have How to easily create your own iBuyer offer  Why we shouldn't be using Canva posts on our personal profiles   How to move yourself to the front of the line in agent-to-agent referral groups    Key Points  An exchange database is for people with whom you've had great exchanges over the phone, in person , or virtually that could refer or transact business with you. This group in your database is in between mets and haven't mets, and it has the potential to become a solid source of business if we nurture it.  Telling consumers to find out what their home is worth is a dead conversation. Right now, the consumer is interested in iBuyer offers that give them the option of speed. Any agent can create an iBuyer offer and even locate investors in their market. To add value to your database throughout the year, use the 4 by 2 by 1 by 12 model. That's 4 pieces of US mail, 2 calls without asking for business, 1 client event (where they can invite guests), and 12 informative emails.

 THE REAL ESTATE SESSIONS PODCAST Episode 303:  Host: BILL RISSER Guest: JAY THOMPSON In this episode, Jay Thompson, my guest, was the first guest to be interviewed at the beginning of the podcast in 2015. Jay is a "retired" Real Estate agent and broker currently based in Texas. In this episode, I sit with Jay as we reminisce on some points from the first episode of the podcast, discuss highlights from Jay's selective retirement, and note significant developments in recent times in the Real Estate industry. Top Takeaways: "I really think it's super important for future retirees ...you've still got to stay busy." - [Jay Thompson] "Real Estate agents will be around in some form, I think, forever." - [Jay Thompson] "It's not customer service that matters; it's customer experience; you need to provide a great customer experience." - [Jay Thompson] Episode Highlights: [00:18] Intro [00:56] Meet today's guest, Jay Thompson. [04:00] Jay's journey into Real Estate till retirement. [17:56] Have you been surprised by any feature of retirement? [21:02] The Beverly Carter Foundation. [26:51] Discussing Zillow's decision to stop the iBuyer program. [32:30] About eXp Realty. [42:01] What should we anticipate in Real Estate? [47:35] Jay's advice to new agents. [50:58] Connect with Jay. [52:19] Outro Episode Notes: Jay was the first guest I interviewed on the podcast, in https://therealestatesessions.com/episodes/episode-1-jay-thompson-zillow-group (episode one on August 31st, 2015). He was an agent and a broker who worked for Zillow for 6.5 years and then retired in July 2018. Selective retirement is a more practical term for Jay than retirement because although he has no regular job, he gets to pick and choose the work he wants to do. However, the experience of working with people and being a part of something is significantly less with retirement, so a conscious effort has to be made towards it. Jay retired to the gulf coast somewhere in Texas during the pandemic. After retirement, Jay was surprised at how long it took him to wind down from working all his life. The Beverly Carter Foundation: The foundation is a 501c nonprofit organization created in 2014 after Beverly Carter was kidnapped. She had gone to show a home in Arkansas when she was kidnapped for ransom which went wrong after the police got involved, and the kidnappers took her life. The foundation gives safety training and awareness to realtors and other lone workers like inspectors and appraisers. To help support the foundation, http://www.beverlycarterfoundation.org/ (visit the website) and donate.  Zillow had announced that they were stopping their iBuying program and effectively would not buy any more homes for the rest of 2021. This was a shock to the Real Estate world, including Jay, who believes the company plans to take such a huge step. He also believes it is too soon for critics to cheer the demise of Zillow. About eXp Realty: Jay started Thompson Real Estate but had to merge with eXp Realty so his wife, managing it, could move full-time to Seattle. Jay learned more about the revenue share model and was intrigued by it; the equity from the merger played a significant factor in Jay's retirement. It is important to note that eXp's revenue-sharing model is different from KW's profit-sharing model. Concerning expectations in the near future, Zillow will continue in other areas of the business and will be around for a very long time. Also, the current debacle with the DOJ will result in a significant shift in the Real Estate industry; nonetheless, Real Estate agents will always be relevant. Jay's advice to new agents: Provide a superior customer experience, rather than simply customer service; customer service means you will do anything and everything to make customers happy, but that will kill you if you're not careful.

2022 Housing Prediction - IBuyers and Buyer Agency [Real Estate Training]

2022 Housing Prediction #7: With iBuyers having less competition from other iBuyers, and i-Buyers having to pay more to fund their businesses (to purchase the actual houses), we predict that i-Buyers will start offering and paying less for the homes, thus they won't be a competitor against the retail buyer anymore.  (Zillow's mistake). In Q3 2021, iBuyers accounted for 1.6 percent of all homes purchased in the U.S. That's around 28,000 homes, nearly double the 15,000 homes purchased by iBuyers in Q2. Also noteworthy: IBuyer Market share in Phoenix, the largest iBuyer market, peaked to a new high of 10.8 percent. This is the first time iBuyers have exceeded 10 percent market share in a major market — a significant if temporary, achievement. While Opendoor and Offerpad improved their net profit and loss in 2021 (benefiting from record home price appreciation), Zillow's just got worse (and that's excluding the $304 million inventory write-down) — another reason Zillow Offers just wasn't working out. Additionally, there is increasing scrutiny of i-Buyers from other entities, for example, The Los Angeles City Council voted last week to explore different ways of preventing i-Buyer companies like Zillow, Open Door, Rocket Homes, and Redfin from purchasing single-family homes.  They state that they believe the i-Buyer, tech-driven platforms are pushing home prices even further out of reach.   Important: 2022 top agent success secrets [Revealed]: New FREE Real Estate Coaching web event, revealing 17 surprising secrets of the top 100 $$ millionaire agents.

According to Bankrate, who surveyed a collection of the nation's largest mortgage lenders, as of November 12th, 2021, the average rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage is 3.07 percent.  The average rate for the benchmark 15-year fixed mortgage is 2.40 percent, down 8 basis points from a week ago. At the current average rate, you'll pay $421.60 per month in principal and interest for every $100,000 you borrow. That's lower by $6.50 than it would have been last week. Monthly payments on a 15-year fixed mortgage at that rate will cost roughly $390 per $100k borrowed. 2022 Housing Prediction #10: Buyer's Agent commissions will continue to erode, become more negotiable, and even optional.  Remember, the listing agent always wins!  The buyer's agent commission will no longer be seen as an ‘entitlement' to the agent. The National Association of Realtors just approved the public display of buyer agent commissions.  Agents may not filter based on this, but it is interesting that the ‘standard' commission is no longer assumed. Remember, there are no buyers who ‘have to' buy, only sellers who ‘have to' sell!  Make the commitment to being a powerful listing agent.

In 2019, Zillow started buying houses with the goal to become another iBuyer. A few weeks ago, they announced that they officially stopped buying. Why did they stop buying? What's the real reason? There are a lot of speculations behind Zillow's decision to stop buying houses and pivot from their goal of becoming another iBuyer on the market. They are saying one thing, but I believe it's another and that's what we're talking about today. In this video, we're talking about Zillow's purchase activity, we're going to run the numbers, and I'm telling you what I believe is the real reason behind their decision to stop buying!

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending November 13th, 2021... the two Fed Chair finalists, the top property investing sector, and the billions earned from a pandemic fee on refinancing loans. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week. President Biden is reportedly close to a decision on who he'll nominate as chief of the Federal Reserve. Fed Chief Jerome Powell's four-year term is up in February, and it appears that Biden is now deciding whether to keep Powell or replace him with Fed Governor Lael Brainard. Brainard is considered more progressive than Powell. She's described in a Barron's article as more “dovish on monetary policy and stronger on bank regulation.” Some Fed watchers also believe that Brainard is more in tune with Biden's economic agenda, but Powell has strong support from moderate Democrats and Republicans, which gives him an edge over Brainard. Biden has said he'll make a decision “fairly quickly.” Some believe he'll announce a nomination by Thanksgiving. (1) (2) Whoever lands that job will be tackling inflation, which surged to a 31-year-high this last week. The consumer price index was up .9% in October, according to the government. That raises the annual rate of inflation from 5.4% in September to 6.2% in October, which is more than triple the Fed's target of 2%. It's also the highest rate of inflation since November of 1990. If you eliminate higher prices for food and energy, the core CPI is about 4.6%. That's up from 4% in September. (3)The gauge the Fed watches more closely is the PCE which stands for personal consumption expenditures. That's rising more slowly. The PCE was 4.4% in September and 3.6% for the core rate. October numbers haven't come out yet.Initial applications for state unemployment benefits dropped again. There were just 267,000 new claims last week while layoffs also fell to a record low. (4) Employers have been struggling to find enough workers to fill positions. There are currently 10.4 million job openings and just 7.4 million people listed as unemployed. One result of this lopsided situation: Companies are increasing hourly rates to attract candidates. Data from Indeed.com shows that jobs offering less than $15 an hour are scarce. (5)Consumers are not very happy about the current economic situation. The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index fell to its lowest level in a decade. The November reading was 66.8. That's a drop of about five points from October, and about 35 points lower than the pre-pandemic reading of 101. (6)Mortgage RatesOn a more positive note, mortgage rates dipped below the 3% level this last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down 11 basis points to 2.98%. The 15-year was 2.27%. (7)In other news making headlines…Single-Family Build-to-Rent BoomInvestors are clamoring into the single-family build-to-rent market, as demand and rents soar. A new Green Street report shows that investors are earning 8% on average. That is the highest amount among the 18 property sectors analyzed by Green Street. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the weighted average return for all property sectors is 6.1%. (8)Housing economics consultant, Brad Hunter, says that builders provided almost 100,000 new rental homes in 2021, and that investors have pumped about $30 billion into this corner of the real estate market. The momentum has created a frenzy for land that's suitable for build-to-rent. One builder told the Journal: “You almost have to find the land before it gets put on the market.”GSE Bonanza from Adverse Market FeeRemember the “adverse market fee” on refinancing loans during the pandemic? It was a 50 basis point fee for refi loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and it earned those two GSEs a bundle!According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Fannie and Freddie earned $5.3 billion from that fee. (9) It says the money will cover about 70% of the cost of the GSE's Covid relief programs, such as the moratorium on foreclosures, and forbearance programs that allowed homeowners to skip their mortgage payments. The adverse market fee was in force for about 10 months, starting in October of last year.Opendoor Buys RedDooriBuyer Opendoor will be able to pre-approve applicants in just “one” minute, with the acquisition of online mortgage broker RedDoor. The mortgage company was founded in 2018 and has partnered up with more than 70 lenders. (10)The announcement comes at a time when Zillow has announced the elimination of its iBuying program, and has created doubts about the profitability of the iBuying business. But as HousingWire reports: “Some investors see add-on services… (like mortgages) as a possible way for iBuyers to eventually turn a profit.”Opendoor expanded into the mortgage business in 2019. And it reportedly “smashed through” earnings estimates for the third quarter with 5,988 homes sold. Year-over-year revenue was up 570%. With Zillow out of the picture, Opendoor now has one less competitor. That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

It's surprising how much absurdity has come from social media about Zillow's big announcement last week. Sad to say, much of the ridiculousness is coming from inside our own industry. Today, Massive Agent Podcast Host Dustin Brohm recaps, some of the theories arising from Zillow's exit from the iBuyer business. He reminds us, as real estate professionals it's imperative that we take this rare opportunity to educate our clients about the benefits of working with a local expert, and not spread rumors about unlikely catastrophes. Dustin suggests we ask ourselves some thought provoking questions like, "How well do we understand the economics of our industry?" and, "Why are we spreading fear about Zillow crashing the housing market?" He also dives into a bit of mindset talk as we consider Zillow's willingness to take a risk and invest in their business. Are we willing to do the same?It's easy to judge the person (or company) that took a big risk and failed. Instead of spewing negativity all over social media, perhaps we should glean some lessons from their mistakes, respect their effort and use that knowledge to grow ourselves and our business.***********************Sponsored by: Follow Up Boss, the CRM of choice for agents ready to scale quickly.

Steven Jack Butala:Welcome to the House Academy show, entertaining real estate investment talk. I'm Steven Jack Butala. Jill K DeWit:And I'm Jill DeWit, broadcasting from the valley of the sun. Steven Jack Butala:Today, Jill and I talk about Zillow's buying spree and how it's gone wrong. Jill K DeWit:I feel bad. Steven Jack Butala:I don't. Jill K DeWit:I know. Steven Jack Butala:I feel great. Jill K DeWit:I know. It's true, but somebody's head's going to roll. Steven Jack Butala:Zillow is pretty much a household word. It's a place to go look at what's for sale for all real estate types. It's a place to go get data. It's a place to post properties. If you buy, like us, buy and sell land. And it's been around for a while. I'll give all the stats here in the regular show, but they started in 2005. And as a tech company, are a huge example of success. And recently they decided to go buy a bunch of houses under the guise of, well, we have all the data, we're going to make better decisions and it totally backfired. And I've been on record saying that they're what's called an iBuyer, which is a... It accounts for 1% of all the acquisitions for SFRs in the country, which sounds like a lot, but it's not. I'll get into the numbers in a minute here. Jill K DeWit:I have numbers too. Steven Jack Butala:Oh, good. Jill K DeWit:Just don't think that I can't come up with numbers. Steven Jack Butala:Before we get into it, let's take a question posted by one of our members on the landinvestors.com online community, it's free and don't forget to subscribe on the Land Academy YouTube channel and comment on the shows you like. Jill K DeWit:David wrote, hi, Jack. After Career Path, I've done six land deals that I probably would've walked away from if I didn't go through Career Path. So I want to say, thanks for that. I still haven't sent mail for land yet because my house flipping business has essentially doubled in volume. I range about 13 deals per month over the last four months. It's a lot. Steven Jack Butala:So, I remember David during Career Path. Jill K DeWit:That's a lot, that's great. Steven Jack Butala:He's a franchisee of a very popular home company that advertises on 800 Number, where if you want to sell your house you can get an offer. And so what he's saying here is, Career Path really helped him with being a franchisee for this company. Just gets me thinking. Jill K DeWit:So, just hadn't had the capacity to add another asset class yet. I actually went through the process of putting together and pricing mailer with concierge data and offers to owner. But my team's a bit overwhelmed right now. So, I'm holding off until they catch their breath. I've heard through the podcast that you and Jill have started doing a little more with House Academy. Right now, we're aiming to start that in the first quarter, after I'm completely out of X company. Jill K DeWit:I actually think it would be a little easier to lift to add the land/house [inaudible 00:02:46] process to what we're doing in the flipping business. Now in a perfect world, my business would never rehab a house again, kudos to that. With that being said, are you still doing consulting calls? And where could we cover some of that? Or are you planning any additional training, like the intensives that you're doing or Career Path, that focus on houses? If some definitely interested, hope Paul as well. Thanks, David. Steven Jack Butala:Next year, we're doing all that. We're releasing multiple Career Path scenarios because everybody wants it. And we will focus on houses with one of them. For sure. Jill K DeWit:I agree. Steven Jack Butala:Today's topic, Zillow's buying spree and how it's gone wrong. This is the meat of the show. Around 2005, Zillow was created by private investors. They raised up a bunch of capital through a company call...

Just when Realtors were getting used to Zillow buying homes directly from the consumer, the platform has pulled the plug on their much touted offer program. What does it mean?    This turn of events can actually work to the benefit of real estate agents if we play our cards right. This is the time for us to up our visibility, give sellers more certainty and take back market share.   What are some of the ways we can make sure our sellers never need to call any iBuyer before us? How do we give the consumer the convenience that made them opt for iBuyers in the first place?   In today's Roundtable, we discuss the recent shift in Zillow's strategy and what we can do to take advantage of it.  Three Things You'll Learn in This Episode    How to remind the consumer of the value we bring Consumers need to know that we never stopped looking out for them even when Zillow was buying homes. How do we put a massive megaphone on this message?     The real reason people were interested in instant offer platforms What drove the rise of Zillow offers and other iBuyers, and how can we build the same level of convenience in our customer experience?    Why we have to get comfortable with spending money on marketing Can agents crush it in the digital marketing game with sweat equity and organic tactics alone?    How to stand out in the listing presentation How can we win by attacking points of friction and stress in the real estate transaction?

Zillow quickly became the first step for buyers and sellers due to their instant connection to tons of real estate information. However, the disruptor ran into some big issues when it tried to add buying and selling to its repertoire. The issue? Not enough hands to make the purchase and selling process as seamless as they wanted. As a result, the iBuyer program was paused then abandoned shortly after. Joe Cucchiara and Jack Russo discuss if digital buying programs still have promise in our future and how much longer traditional broker relationships can survive automated home sales.   To learn more, simply visit www.RERadioLive.com.

Zillow Quits iBuying Business, Unloads Inventory

Zillow has officially announced the end of it's iBuying program, Zillow Offers. The announcement comes just a few weeks after the company said it wouldn't be buying any more homes this year. And then there were reports that Zillow would be offloading thousands of homes at a discount.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.The iBuying frenzy has been growing among several competitors including Zillow, Redfin, Opendoor, Offerpad and others. There was a pause in those programs during the pandemic, but the iBuyers were back in full swing this year. And Zillow was one of the more exuberant ones.Home Price ForecastingBut Zillow apparently miscalculated the value of the homes it was buying. The company's financial results show a $304 million write-down for the homes that were purchased for more than it can sell them for. It expects to lose another $240 to $265 million for homes that it is contracted to purchase in the next quarter.CEO Rich Barton told investors: “We've determined the unpredictability in forecasting home prices far exceeds what we anticipated and continuing to scale Zillow Offers would result in too much earnings and balance-sheet volatility.” (1)Zillow now expects to wind the home-flipping arm of its business down over several months. That includes a 25% reduction in its workforce, which will impact about 2,000 employees.Zillow's iBuying BingeThe company has been on a buying binge. According to the Wall Street Journal, Zillow bought 3,800 homes in the second quarter, and ended the third quarter with an inventory of almost 10,000 homes and another 8,000 homes under contract to buy. It only sold about 3,000 homes, and many were sold at a loss. The Journal says that Zillow also expects to lose between 5% and 7% on the remaining homes. (2)An analyst for KeyBanc looked at the financials for 650 homes in Zillow's inventory. That's about one-fifth of the homes the company owns. As reported by MarketWatch, he found that Zillow was selling two-thirds of them at a discount of 4.5%. Most of the discounted homes that he found are in San Diego; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Las Vegas. (3)Offloading Homes to InvestorsAccording to Bloomberg, Zillow is hoping to sell about 7,000 homes to institutional investors for close to $2.8 billion. The report says they will likely be sold to various buyers, and not as a single sale. (4)Barton founded the company 16 years ago. The iBuying arm of the business is relatively new. Barton wanted to hit 5,000 home flips a month and had predicted, last year, that Zillow Offers could generate $20 billion a year. What Went Wrong?Zillow has been an aggressive player in the iBuying market, offering more than competitors. That won Zillow some homes, but in markets that may have cooled off slightly, the anticipated price growth didn't materialize. It sounds a little like the scenario in 2005 when people thought home prices only go up. Right now, they are still going up, but Zillow apparently miscalculated by how much. The New York Times also reports that the company underestimated the risk of holding homes for too long between a purchase and a sale. (5) Zillow had previously said that labor and material shortages were impacting the business. The company couldn't turn them around fast enough. And that's a huge departure from a relatively risk free business model that Zillow was founded on.Barton and Zillow's CFO, Allen Parker, said in a shareholder letter: “Our aim was to become a market maker, not a market risk taker.” On a more positive note, there will be thousands of homes hitting the market at a discount from the previous sale price, and possibly of interest to investors both big and small.You'll find links to our sources in the show notes at newsforinvestors.com.
