What is Make Me Move?

What is Make Me Move?

Make Me Move is a free and easy way to tell others the price you'd be willing to sell your home for, without actually putting it on the market. It's that magical number you just can't refuse.

How Does It Work?

Once you set your Make Me Move price, potential buyers can contact you via e-mail and your identity will remain anonymous. Then it's up to you whether or not to sell your home. Try it out! You can remove your Make Me Move price at any time.

Make Me Move Success Stories:

  • Laurie B of Lake Forest, Illinois, says, "We put our house on Zillow with a Make Me Move price and the first person who called came to the house and made an offer. We closed within the month!"
  • Ron G of Los Angeles was about to retire so he posted an MMM of $1.6 million for his house. The next morning he was contacted by a buyer, and within a week had a check for the total MMM price, 14 percent over the Zestimate.
  • Nick C and his fiance were busy people who didn't want the hassle of listing their Seattle condo. Deciding on a "passive-aggressive" approach, they posted an MMM price. An agent for a retired couple saw the MMM and contacted Nick with an offer $10,000 less, still 12 percent over the Zestimate. Nick contacted his own agent, and the transaction sailed through.
Why Use Make Me Move?


Thinking about selling soon? Use Make Me Move to start gathering interest from potential buyers.

Meet Sarah: Sarah lives in a 1920s house with her 17-year-old daughter who will soon head to college. Since the house is old and requires a lot of upkeep, Sarah wants to buy a smaller home in a brand-new development that is being planned a few miles away. She's not ready to formally put her home on the market, but she wants to get the word out that she would like to move within the year.

Opportunity knocks

Your "plans down the road" might happen sooner than expected if the right offer comes along.

Meet Mike: Mike works in the city and lives in the suburbs with his wife. They have a second home in the Southwest where they plan to retire when Mike turns 62, so they still have 10 years in their primary home... or do they? Mike is a little tired of taking care of his 2-acre property, the kids are out of the house, and it would be nice to avoid the commute, plus enjoy all the city has to offer. Mike is thinking if the right opportunity came along, he might just be tempted to sell it, downsize, and rent a place in the city until he's ready to retire.

Pie in the sky

Flirt with the possibilities. Every seller has a price -- what's yours?

Meet Ryan: Ryan is 32 years old, single, and has a great job as a senior accountant at a health insurance company. He bought a one-bedroom condo a few years ago, but there's nothing holding him back from changing direction at a moment's notice. He would travel for a year -- or more -- as he's always dreamed. His life could be a blank canvas from which to start something new. He would be daring, if someone gave him the right price for his condo.
