I just sold my house to Redfin. Did I make a deal with the devil?
It all started with a little journalistic curiosity. And more than a little germaphobia.
I was selling my place in Los Angeles in anticipation of a move to the Bay Area. My partner and I weren’t vaccinated against COVID yet, and the last thing we wanted was a parade of potential buyers breathing all over our pillows and pawing our counters. As I scoured the internet for information on COVID security and home sales, I found myself bombarded with ads begging me to “Sell Your Home to Redfin”.
