What makes us different 

Unlock Equity

Unlock up to $2 million dollars in equity from your current home to cover your down payment, moving, closing costs, repairs and more. It’s your choice!

Make a competitive offer

We'll remove your home sale contingency so you can make a competitive offer and save money — as sellers often value certainty over nabbing top dollar.

Sell for up to 10% more

After you move, list your current home unoccupied and potentially staged, which can lead to a higher selling price.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How much does the program cost?
    -It's free to get started and see how much equity you can unlock. If you decide to transact using the program, there is a flat fee of 2.4% of the departing residence home sale. Thanks to the structure of the program, you might be able to save to 1-3% of the the purchase of your new home with a non-contingent offer and sell your existing home for up to 10% more by listing it unoccupied and potentially staged. 
  2. How do you determine how much equity I can unlock from my current home?
    - The amount of equity you can unlock is determined using HomeLight's proprietary algorithm, which takes into consideration an estimate of the home's value, current market conditions, projected market risk, borrower financials, outstanding loans, and more. You'll be able to unlock a portion of the overall equity you have in your home upfront, prior to selling the home --- and will receive the remainder of your equity after the home sells, less program fees.
  3. What can I use my Equity Unlock Amount for?
    - You can use your Equity Unlock Amount for more than a down payment on  your new home. You can also use it for: Moving expenses, Closing expenses, Property repair, and more
  4. What if my home is already listed? 
    - Not a problem! We consider all properties for the program regardless of days on the market. However, the total number of listed days can affect your Equity Unlock Amount based on the risk profile of the property.
  5.  What if my current home doesn't sell?
    - I will work closely with you to sell your home. If your home does not sell within 90 days, HomeLight will buy it and work with me to list and sell it. You'll receive any profit from the sale, after deducting HomeLight's incurred cost. 
  6. Sounds too good to be true. What's the catch? 
    - There is no catch! You are paying to use the program but the savings and gains created can outweigh the cost of the program.
