How it Works
We will send our Trade-In Representative to meet with you at your home to assess its value and prepare an offer that represents the property's fair market value. You will receive an offer within days, there is no cost or obligation and you can accept or reject our offer.
We buy homes “as-is,” so there is no need to worry about costly repairs and updates. You also won’t have to worry about expensive bridge loans, double mortgages, home sale contingencies that reduce your negotiating leverage, being rushed to find your next home as soon as your current homes goes into contract so as to time your transactions and avoid the need for temporary housing while we work to find the perfect home for you. Furthermore, if you decide to accept our offer and agree to buy your next home through us (a service that is free to you as sellers pay real estate commissions), we will waive the real estate commissions associated with the sale of your current home.
Once you've accepted our offer we will then assist you in finding your replacement home. There are no limitations here and you have the option of considering: pre-owned existing homes, already completed new homes, or even building a brand new fully custom home. As it relates to builders and communities, again there are no restrictions as we work throughout the greater Central Ohio region and with every local builder. Once we've found your perfect home and negotiated the sale, we will coordinate back-to-back closings for your sale and purchase.

What's the catch?
There is no catch…hundreds of families have traded in their existing home. While the program is not for everyone, it could be the easiest way for you to sell your current home.
What if I don’t like the offer on my home?
If you're not happy with the offer on your current home you can simply reject our offer. There are no costs or obligations to you. If you decide you'd prefer to simply list your home, or if you'd prefer to at least give this a shot before reconsidering our offer we're happy to assist.
With many other cash-offer models, consumers lose the value and expert opinion that a real estate agent brings to the table. We see ourselves as different from those typical investor or iBuyer models. As licensed Realtors we are sworn to protect the public, and eliminate practices which may damage the public or which might discredit or bring dishonor to the real estate profession.
The term REALTOR® has come to connote competency, fairness, and high integrity resulting from adherence to a lofty ideal of moral conduct in business relations. No inducement of profit and no instruction from clients ever can justify departure from this ideal.
In the interpretation of this obligation, REALTORS® can take no safer guide than that which has been handed down through the centuries, embodied in the Golden Rule, “Whatsoever ye would that others should do to you, do ye even so to them.”
You have the assurance that your property is sold!
If we make an offer that is acceptable to you we will buy your home. Our Home Trade-In Program eliminates the hassle and inconveniences associated with the traditional method of listing and selling a home, the real estate commissions and fees, concerns of juggling two mortgages, as well as the need to time your transactions as we'll close when you locate the perfect home and are ready to d so.
No costly repairs or upgrades.
Again we buy your home “as is” so there’s no need for you to conduct repairs or renovations to the property.
Our Home Trade-in Program ensures that there’s no worrying about a “contingent” purchase contract.
Most sellers won’t accept your offer if it’s contingent on the sale of your current home. Yet most home buyers need to sell their current house before they can qualify for the financing to complete the purchase of their next home. This can make orchestrating both transactions complicated and often forces sellers who are also looking to purchase either settle for a home that happens to be available when their current home goes into contract as opposed to purchasing their dream home, or to temporarily live in a rental home or hotel between the transactions giving them time to wait for the perfect property to hit the market.
Our Trade-In Program allows you to avoid all of this and when you accept our trade-in purchase offer you know your house is sold. We then allow you to stay in your existing home until you've located and are ready to close on your replacement home, eliminating the need for temporary housing or to settle for a home that's less than perfect simply to time your transactions. That’s one move into your new dream home!
