According to a recent RisMedia article, Zillow has announced that it is pausing its home-flipping business, Zillow Offers, due to supply chain issues that are affecting the entire housing market. “We’re operating within a labor-and-supply-constrained economy inside a competitive real estate market, especially in the construction, renovation and closing spaces,” said Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow’s COO. Zillow’s shares have fallen since the announcement, by as much as 11.4%. With market inventory still low across the country, Zillow’s pause on buying is sure to help smaller brokerages acquire properties for their clients.
