Buy Before You Sell®

Help your clients move into their new home now and get full market value for their old home. You’ll represent them on both transactions.

How does it work?

  • Step 1: Get the client's current property approved

    Discover the amount of equity they're able to unlock from their current home.

  • Step 2: Make a strong offer on their new home

    With the equity unlock, your clients are able to make a stronger offer on their new home, with no home sale contingency.

  • Step 3: Your clients can move in on their schedule

    They’re able to move in immediately upon closing. You have:
    - 10 days to list their prior home on the open market.
    - 90 days to get their prior home under contract.

  • Step 4: Maximize the home's sales price on the open market

    You list the home vacant and are able to maximize its sales price. Once the home sells:
    - You get paid!
    - HomeLight collects the program fee & reimbursement for the unlocked equity

FAQ's

It’s free to get started and see how much equity your clients can unlock. If your clients choose to transact using the program, the fee is:
– 1.7% of the current home’s sales price if they use HomeLight’s lending services
– 2.4% of the current home’s sales price if they choose to use a different lender or use cash
It takes 2-3 days on average to get conditional approval, and you’ll be ready to submit offers with no home sale contingency within 7-10 days.
HomeLight will purchase it at the Loan Payoff Value, then will relist it on the open market with you as the listing agent. This is unlikely though. You are a great agent, you know the value of this home, and you will be coaching your clients through any needed price drops leading up to day 90 to ensure it sells before then and gets the best price possible on the open market!
