Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Starck Real Estate Offers Home Sellers a New iBuy Solution
January 27, 2020
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Starck Real Estate, one of Chicagoland's largest and most experienced real estate organizations, introduces QuickBuy™, an alternative home sale option made available through a partnership with Moving Station, LLC, a leading U.S. iBuyer since 2012.
The relationship allows Starck Real Estate to present Midwest home sellers with a reliable "instant" offer for their home as an alternative to a traditional home sale. Consumers who request a QuickBuy™ offer from Starck can enjoy the certainty and convenience of an immediate offer with the expertise and guidance of a knowledgeable agent. Homes must qualify for the program before an offer is made. But once the seller accepts a QuickBuy™ offer, the home may close in as few as 14 days.
There is no cost for consumers to request a QuickBuy™ offer and home sellers in Northern Illinois are free to explore this new option through their local Starck Real Estate brokerage.
"Our business has always focused on the needs of our clients and adding an instant buying option is just one more way to respond to our clients and give them more choice and control over the sale of their home," states Aaron Starck, President of Starck Real Estate. "The web is increasingly crowded with real estate algorithms and home value estimates, but the majority of consumers look to their local real estate broker for superior market intel and trusted guidance for their real estate transaction. People simply can't get that from the internet," he continued.
"Starck agents are excited to present QuickBuy™ to clients in search of an alternative home sale solution" states Jim Toulon, COO of Starck, "The QuickBuy™ customer is looking to sell their home fast for a variety of reasons, but often because they want to make a non-contingent cash offer on another home. Others may simply want to be free from market uncertainly or the stress of preparing a home for the market."
For sellers who want to test the sale of their home on the market to find a better price, but with the assurance of a cash buyout, if the home does not sell, they can also select QuickBuy™ Lock. The QuickBuy™ Lock program offers clients the opportunity to find a better price plus the confidence they need in an uncertain market. If the home does not sell in 150 days, the seller can accept the QuickBuy™ Lock offer to close in 180 days.
"Since 1995 Moving Station has demonstrated the utmost respect for the broker-client relationship. We maintain excellent relationships with thousands of brokers nationwide and as a Chicago-based company, we could not ask for a better and more respected partner than Starck Real Estate to launch QuickBuy in the local marketplace," states Dan Amdur, CEO of Moving Station, the parent company of QuickBuy.
Amdur continued, "The QuickBuy™ process is unlike other "iBuy" programs in that it relies on sound market research by team professionals, rather than just an algorithm, in order to establish the most accurate home valuation. Whether or not the offer is accepted, that step of the process is a great benefit to the seller."
Consumers can simply contact Starck Real Estate via email at QuickBuy@StarckRE.com to request a QuickBuy™ Offer or contact one of Starck Real Estate's 17 offices. Seller's homes are qualified over the phone and after a visit from a Starck Broker, if the home qualifies, QuickBuy™ will generate an offer based on proprietary technology and our professionals with over 25 years of residential property experience. The Starck broker will present the offer to the seller and upon acceptance typical home inspection will follow. Closing may take place in as few as 14 days. If the offer is rejected, the agent will provide other home sale options.
