Discover NC Homes is highlighting a recent change introduced by Zillow in reaction to new regulations from the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Zillow has implemented what is called a “seven-day touring agreement,” which is set to modify the conventional procedures associated with viewing and purchasing properties.

Under this new arrangement, potential buyers have the ability to conduct home tours directly through Zillow with the facilitation of the listing broker, bypassing the traditional need for buyer-side real estate agents. This structure eliminates any contractual ties between the buyer and real estate agents. This significant shift could redefine buyer and seller interactions within the real estate market. Here is the new agreement:

The initiative appears to be Zillow’s preliminary response to the latest buyer agency agreements and is indicative of potential widespread changes in the real estate industry. The adaptation suggests a future where digital platforms might dominate the initial stages of home buying, influencing how other real estate entities might respond.

Discover NC Homes is actively tracking these industry developments and will continue to update its clients and the broader community as more information becomes available. While they are currently not providing personal opinions on the changes, they are committed to transparency and will offer insights as soon as they are able to do so.

Discover NC Homes invites anyone with questions about the potential impact of this new agreement on their property dealings to contact them for further details. They are prepared to assist with navigating these changes, ensuring their clients are well-supported throughout evolving market conditions. More information will be provided as the situation develops.
