How HomeLight Trade-in Works

Step 1

Get a guaranteed offer from HomeLight

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.

Step 2

Make a winning offer on your new home

When you’ve found the home of your dreams, Trillion Real Estate 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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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 cost breakdown from an actual client.

Market Valuation$ 700,000
Homelight Guaranteed Price$ 630,000
Estimated Homelight Trade-in Fee$ 10,500
Estimated Commissions, Closing, and Repair Costs$ 62,000
Estimated Loan Payoff$ 300,000
Equity for new home purchase$ 264,500
Actual Sales Price$ 715,000
Actual HomeLight Trade-In fee*$ 10,725
Actual Commissions, Closing, and Repair Costs$ 62,271
Additional proceeds after market sale$ 77,504
Total equity received from sale$ 342,008
