Press Release (PRNewswire)

Starting today, home sellers in Colorado Springs and Fort Collins, Colo., can use Zillow Offers to request a cash offer from Zillow to buy their home. These two Front Range markets are new satellite markets of the existing Zillow Offers Denver operations, which first opened in October 2018.

These new markets leverage the existing staff, infrastructure and broker partnerships from the Denver hub, allowing thousands more homeowners the option to sell their homes on their timeline through the popular Zillow Offers program without the expense of establishing a regional hub market.

"Adding Colorado Springs and Fort Collins allows us to accelerate Zillow Offers and bring this rapidly growing service to more communities faster with greater efficiency," said Zillow Brand President Jeremy Wacksman. "We've seen tremendous demand for Zillow Offers in Denver and we're delighted to build on this foundation to introduce the convenience to homeowners throughout the Front Range."

The addition of the Colorado Springs and Fort Collins satellite markets brings the total number of markets where Zillow Offers is currently available to 14, including Phoenix, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Denver (hub), Charlotte, Raleigh, Houston, Riverside, Dallas, Minneapolis, Orlando, and Portland. Zillow also has announced plans to launch in Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Diego, and Tampa. Colorado Springs and Fort Collins are incremental to the 20 markets the company previously announced it plans Zillow Offers to operate in by the end of the first quarter 2020.

Zillow Offers is transforming the way people sell their homes across the country, offering less hassle and more certainty. Through the program, Zillow directly buys a house, prepares it for showings, and then quickly lists it for sale. Additionally, consumers using Zillow Offers – whether they are selling to or buying from Zillow – can experience an even simpler real estate transaction if they decide to get financing from Zillow's affiliate lender, Zillow Home Loans.

In each market where Zillow Offers operates, Zillow works with local agents and brokers on every transaction. Zillow pays a commission to local real estate agents when it buys and sells a home, and agents remain at the center of every Zillow Offers transaction. A local broker will represent Zillow in each transaction.

As of May, more than 100,000 homeowners across the country have requested a no-obligation cash offer from Zillow to buy their home - equal to a request for an offer every two minutes.

Peaks N Pines Brewing Company turned over the taps and tables at the north store to trainees preparing for the opening of the new Fountain Colorado facility.

The north location is located at 4005 Tutt Blvd in Colorado Springs, near CarMax and Schnitzel Fritz, just east of Powers Blvd. The new Fountain facility will be located at 212 W. Illinois Ave.. The Urban Renewal Authority in Fountain made the property available. Peaks N Pines took the opportunity to become the first craft brewery in the Fountain Valley. They've gutted and remodeled. In fact, the new location will be their main brewery.

Opening date has not been set, but I'm told an announcement will be made perhaps next week. Follow Peaks N Pines Brewery-Fountain on Facebook for news and updates.
