Amazon is officially stepping foot into the real estate industry by helping their customers buy their new home!
Amazon is partnering up with Realogy Holdings Corp., the largest residential real estate company in the U.S., to help create a new program for future homebuyers. The program is called TurnKey, and it will provide products and services to help their customers find a new home!
For starters, Amazon will connect homebuyers with a local Realogy-affiliated agent chosen based on their record and market expertise to guide their house hunt.
Once you purchase a home, you can then get a complimentary Amazon Home Services and products worth up to $5,000! Amazon connects the new homeowner with services and experts such as handymen, furniture assembly, house cleaners, and carpet cleaners. Amazon also plays a part by offering new homeowners with free Amazon smart home products such as an Echo Dot or Spot, Echo Show, and Ring Doorbell along with Amazon Home Services!
The TurnKey program will match homebuyers in 15 U.S. cities with local real estate agents from brands like Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA, and Sothebys International Realty.
