How HomeLight Trade-In works

Get HomeLight's purchase price

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 home as soon as you're ready to move into your new home.

Make a strong offer on 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.

Move in on your schedule

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.

Get full market value when we sell your home

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.*

Curious how much we’ll offer for your home?

Take their word for it

The fact that we're both teachers on teacher incomes, and we were able to use the HomeLight Trade-In program to live in the house of our dreams is pretty incredible.Jason CastroHomeLight Trade-In Client
