Homebuyers and Sellers Can Now Work with Full-Service Redfin Agents and Search for Homes on Redfin Website and App
People can now buy and sell homes with Redfin agents in Des Moines, Iowa, and Lincoln, Nebraska! With the addition of Iowa, Redfin is now available to homebuyers and sellers in 42 states, the District of Columbia and Toronto!
By meeting customers through our site and using technology to make the buying and selling process more efficient, Redfin’s local agents are able to provide full service and charge a lower fee. In Des Moines and Lincoln, we sell homes for just a 1.5 percent listing fee. Redfin agents provide a complete home-selling service including pricing and staging advice, free professional photography, a 3D virtual tour and digital marketing. A local homeowner selling a $300,000 home would save $4,500 working with a Redfin agent rather than a traditional agent charging a 3 percent listing fee.
Homebuyers can use our industry-leading website and iOS and Android app to search all the agent-listed homes for sale, receive instant updates on their smartphone the moment a new home hits the market and book a home tour with a Redfin agent with the click of a button. In Lincoln, Redfin will refund a portion of its commission to its home-buying clients. The homebuyer refund is not available in Des Moines, due to state law.
Redfin agents are employees, who are paid a salary and receive bonuses based in part on customer-satisfaction, which makes them accountable to deliver results for their clients. Redfin customers are asked to review the service they received from their Redfin agents and the reviews are published on the agents’ online profiles.
“I was attracted to Redfin’s mission to redefine real estate in the consumer’s favor. Our combination of technology, service and value is unmatched in the local market,” said Jake Stanton, who will lead Redfin’s real estate operations in Des Moines. Stanton brings over 20 years of real estate leadership experience to the Redfin team. “Redfin is the modern real estate brokerage, positioned to serve the needs of today’s consumers who are looking for personal service from a local expert and also want the convenience of a tech-powered experience,” said Stanton.
Dakotah Smith, Redfin Market Manager overseeing Nebraska and Iowa, said, “Since our launch in Omaha in 2015, Redfin has been extremely well-received. We’re thrilled to be expanding to these two, thriving capital cities. Des Moines and Lincoln attract residents from around the country because they offer a great quality of life and excellent job opportunities. Redfin is well-positioned to help both longtime residents and new residents find their dream homes in the Midwest.”
