HomeLight Trade-InTM for agents

Empower your sellers to make their best offer on a new home by getting an all-cash offer on their existing home, before going on the market. You’ll represent them on both transactions — and, in the end, they’ll get full market value.*

This program is currently available through certified agents in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Texas.
Agents must apply to be certified.

How HomeLight Trade-In works

HomeLight presents an offer to purchase your client’s home

We’ll work with you to make an offer on your client’s current home. That’s the price we’ll pay as soon as they’re ready to move into their new home.

Your client finds a home to buy and makes a strong offer with HomeLight’s help

When your client finds the home of their dreams, they’ll be ready to make their strongest offer knowing they have a cash buyer for their existing home. This means they’re more likely to close and can do so on their own timeline.

Your client moves in on their schedule

Once their offer is accepted, everything comes together in days, not months. We buy their home at the purchase price so they get the cash to close on their dream home and control when they move.

They get full market value when you sell their home

We work with you to list your client’s past home. If their home sells for more than the price HomeLight paid for it, we give them the additional cash minus selling costs and program fees.*
