Online real estate company Zillow and D.R. Horton, the nation’s largest builder by sales volume, have announced a new strategic partnership that gives D.R. Horton home buyers the opportunity to sell their existing home through Zillow Offers, providing an easier, more certain move.

Aiming to solve one of the industry’s top challenges of timing the new sale and the previous home’s closing, Zillow Offers allows D.R. Horton customers selling through the platform to receive an extended closing timeline of up to eight months, and the flexibility to modify the closing date to better align both transactions.

“Buying a new home is an exciting time, and we’re proud to collaborate with the nation’s largest home builder to help people unlock life’s next chapter,” says Arik Prawer, president of the Zillow Homes Division. “Zillow Offers puts sellers in control of their own transaction. In a time when social distancing is becoming a necessity, selling to Zillow Offers provides a safe and flexible way to transact so new construction buyers can focus on moving into their next dream home.”

To start the process, sellers can visit zillow.com/drhorton to answer a few questions about their home, upload some photos, and receive a free, no-obligation offer in about 48 hours.

By using Zillow Offers, sellers can avoid the hassle of prepping their home for sale and hosting open houses or showings. Plus, D.R. Horton home buyers who sell their home through Zillow may be eligible to receive cash credits at closing and free local moving services to make the process even easier.

“We are excited to partner with Zillow to bring more convenience and flexibility to the home buying experience,” says Donald R. Horton, chairman of D.R. Horton. “This is a great opportunity to provide our customers with new options to streamline the process of selling their existing home, and help them move into their new D.R. Horton home more efficiently.”

The partnership will be marketed on all D.R. Horton home listings on Zillow, and in D.R. Horton sales offices in all markets where Zillow Offers operates.
