Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri are the newest available markets for Offerpad (NYSE:OPAD), a leading tech-enabled platform for buying and selling residential real estate. Offerpad's Real Estate Solutions Center is now available in 20 markets and nearly 1,500 cities and towns nationwide following today's launch of its two new Midwest markets.
"Kansas City and St. Louis mark our first entry into new markets as a publicly traded company that is transforming the way people buy and sell homes," said Brian Bair, Offerpad's CEO and Chairman. "With each new market, we provide more buyers and sellers with an easier, more convenient on-demand real estate experience that puts them in control. With the dedicated efforts of our Kansas City and St. Louis general managers and their teams of local experts, we look forward to making an impact in the real estate ecosystems in our two new markets."
The company's Kansas City operations are run by General Manager Brian O'Banion who brings 15 years of real estate experience to Offerpad's new market. "Offerpad brings something very unique to our neighbors here ? in today's highly competitive real estate environment, and always," said O'Banion. "We empower people to buy and sell homes with unprecedented freedom, convenience and control."
Through its exclusive online Real Estate Solutions Center at offerpad.com, Offerpad provides home buyers and sellers with multiple options for relieving the headaches and stress commonly experienced with typical real estate transactions.
Offerpad's St. Louis market General Manager Brian Routt, a 20-year veteran in the real estate industry looks forward to appealing to consumers as well as industry professionals in the area. "The St. Louis market is a perfect fit for Offerpad's Real Estate Solutions Center and the products and services we provide. In addition, through partnerships and collaboration with local real estate professionals such as agents, home builders and renovation contractors, we're creating new, highly beneficial, and impactful business opportunities to give St. Louisans even better home buying and selling experiences," said Routt.
Through Offerpad's Agent Partnership Program in St. Louis and Kansas City, real estate agents can earn an industry-high 3% referral fee when they help clients with an Offerpad EXPRESS cash sale. Offerpad then works with local vendors to quickly prepare and return homes it purchases to the local inventory for new buyers. Area home builders can assist their new-home buyers through Offerpad's Homebuilder Services program by removing the need or contingency to sell an existing home before purchasing a new-construction home.
As announced previously, Offerpad expects to round out its 2021 market expansion with the upcoming opening of its fourth Midwest market in Columbus, Ohio. The company debuted in the Midwest with the launch of Indianapolis, Indiana in July 2021. For a complete list of available Offerpad markets around the country, visit offerpad.com/locations.
