How HomeLight Trade-in Works
Get a guaranteed offer
Once approved you will receive a guaranteed offer on your current home. That’s the price you will be paid for your current home as soon as you’re ready to move into your new home.
Make a winning offer on your new home
When you’ve found the home of your dreams, Spyglass Realty will be ready to write the offer with no lending or home sale contingency. This means you’re more likely to win and can close on your own timeline.
Move in on your schedule
Once your offer is accepted, everything comes together in days, not months. You get the cash to close on your dream home and control when you move.
Keep all the upside
Once you're out of the old house we will fix it up like a shiny penny and sell it. If it sells for more than the guaranteed price YOU get to keep the extra.
What it Costs
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 typical cost breakdown for a Homelight Trade-in.
