Looking To Sell Your Home? Zillow Is Buying In Cincinnati

AP Photo/Al Behrman, File

The real estate listing company Zillow Group is now buying homes directly from sellers, and it's bringing the operation to Cincinnati next year. It's called Zillow Offers and it's part of an emerging trend of instant buying, or "i-Buying." 

Sellers can skip listing their home, hosting open houses and making repairs. Zillow offers provides a no-obligation cash offer, often within 48 hours. But is selling your home over the internet really the right way to go?

Joining Cincinnati Edition are Zillow President Jeremy Wacksman; Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors President Michelle Billings; and Kopf Hunter Haas Realtors Broker and Owner Pete Kopf.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
