What is Reali Buy Before You Sell?

When you’re trying to buy and sell a house at the same time, the logistics can be tricky. With Reali Buy Before You Sell, you can use our cash to buy first and let our real estate experts sell your old home on your behalf. Imagine not having to time the sale of your old home with the closing of your new one.

What are the benefits of Reali Buy Before You Sell?

Aside from being able to buy a new home before your current one sells, there are lots of other benefits to the program. Buying a home in all cash means fewer contingencies, which is almost always preferred by sellers as it eliminates the need for loan approval. With no mortgage contingency, which typically extends the process, you can close faster and with fewer uncertainties. What’s more, all-cash offers often close for less than the asking price.

How exactly does the Buy Before You Sell process work?

When you use Reali Buy Before You Sell, we’ll front you the cash to place a competitive all-cash offer on the new home you want. You can move in whenever you’re ready. Meanwhile, we’ll list and sell your old home for top dollar. When it sells, you’ll use the proceeds to repurchase your new home from us at the original purchase price.

What are the fees associated with Reali’s Buy Before You Sell program?

To enable you to become a cash buyer and remove the finance, home sale, and appraisal contingencies, we charge a program fee. The standard Buy Before You Sell fee is 1.0% of the purchase price. However, if you choose Reali Loans to finance your home, you’ll receive a 0.5% credit at closing, bringing your program fee down to 0.5%. 

Please note that in addition to the 1% program fee, you will also be responsible for the seller agent commission of 2.5%. This brings the total cost to 3.5% (or 3% when applying previously mentioned 0.5% Reali Loans credit). This does not include the standard buyer’s agent commission or other Buy Before You Sell costs such as rent, transfer fees, or closing costs.

Where is Reali Buy Before You Sell available?

Reali is currently available to buyers and sellers in most major markets throughout California.

Is Buy Before You Sell right for me?

If you’re in our service area, need to buy a new home as well as sell your current one, it could be just the ticket. But if not, there’s more to Reali than just Buy Before You Sell. To see what else is available, contact us to discuss your unique situation.
