It’s the easy button you’ve been waiting for without leaving money on the table.
We'll work with your real estate agent to make an offer on your current home. That's the price we'll pay you for your current homes as soon as you're ready to move into your new home.
When you've found the home of your dreams, you'll be ready to make an offer with no lending or home sale contingency. This means you're more likely to close and can do so on your own timeline.
Once your offer is accepted, everything comes together in days, not months. We buy your home at the purchase price so you get the cash to close on your dream home and control when you move.
We work with your agent to list your past home. If your home sells for more than the price HomeLight paid for it, we give you the additional cash minus selling costs and program fees.
Pricing could not be simpler. In addition to paying typical Real Estate commissions, closing costs, and repair expenses, there is a fee that typically runs about 1.5% of the home you are selling.
We find that most clients will recoup some or all of this fee by being able to make a stronger non-contingent offer on a new home AND getting top dollar for the existing home being vacant and all cleaned up. Below is a cost breakdown from an actual client.
