Have your eye on a home in one of the beautiful new communities that seem to be popping up overnight like a new Starbucks on every corner?
You’re not the only one. Despite dips early last year, record-high new home sales capped a busy fall and early winter 2020 for major builders as the U.S. housing market continues to benefit from record low interest rates and increasing demand from people moving away from big cities to newer communities in the ‘burbs and beyond.
And now Offerpad is making those moves faster and easier by helping buyers and builders solve one of the biggest stumbling blocks to buying a new-construction home – selling their existing one.
In June 2020, Offerpad became the first iBuyer to offer home sellers the option of listing their home with us. Part of our Real Estate Solutions Center to make home buying and selling easier than ever, we’re now extending that option – with some extra added perks – to partners in our Homebuilder Alliance, beginning with Maronda Homes in Florida.
Maronda Homes First Builder to Offer New Offerpad Listing Option
Maronda Homes has been a top partner with Offerpad since 2019, providing customers who need to sell their current home with the option of a planned and certain sale through Offerpad’s direct sale solution. Now they’re able to offer new-build buyers in Orlando, Tampa, Melbourne and Port St. Lucie another home selling solution: the option to list their existing home with Offerpad while buying a new Maronda Home.
This new, one-of-a-kind home listing solution gives buyer-sellers even more control, convenience and certainty over back-to-back real estate moves. Whether or not Maronda customers opt to sell their current home directly to Offerpad, they can list it for sale with us to take advantage of the following seller benefits:
- Expert resources to maximize the value of their home before putting it on the market
- Dedicated free concierge services to prepare the home for showings
- A free Extended Stay window of up to five days after closing
- A free professional local move
- An optional no-obligation, back-up cash offer – issued within one hour – they can accept anytime within 90 days of listing their home with Offerpad, including an extended 270-day window after offer acceptance
Maronda Homes President Scott Howard said, “Throughout our collaboration with Offerpad, we’ve been better equipped to provide relief and certainty for our home buyers in need of selling their home in order to close on their beautiful new build. Now with another option for them to choose from, we look forward to serving even more people through streamlined back-to-back buying and selling experiences.”
More Communities to Come!
Offerpad’s home listings are available to you now at over 50 Maronda Homes communities in Florida. Not in the market for a new-home build in the Sunshine State? No worries. As explained by Kyle Rush, National Director of Offerpad’s Homebuilder Alliance, we’ll be taking our new listing solution to other homebuilder partners and their buyers in the coming months.
We’re always focused on streamlining processes for both home sellers and our homebuilder partners. Extending our Real Estate Solutions Center to our partners and new-construction-buying home sellers allows us to do more for them both,” says Kyle. “Providing choice, certainty and convenience is our goal at Offerpad. We look forward to offering that more fully by starting with Maronda in the sprawling Orlando, Port St. Lucie, Tampa, and Melbourne areas of Florida, and extending those benefits to our other partners in the near future.”
