In case you hadn’t heard, there’s some pretty big news in the Offerpad world: we recently announced the arrival of our Homebuilder Alliance Program (HBA). While we’re not operating on the same global scale as some alliances (shout outs to the Super Friends, thanks for all you do), this partnership will similarly benefit all mankind — particularly the home buying variety. Here’s why.
A new way to move freely
It wasn’t that long ago that homeowners were burdened by the financial necessity of selling their home before making their next purchase under the traditional model. For the fine folks who are eager to move to their next home without being financially saddled by their current mortgage, our HBA program gives them a new way to move freely. By teaming up with some of the biggest homebuilders across the country, we’re helping consumers more easily coordinate the sale of an existing home to coincide with the purchase of a new construction home.
Wondering how we can help you transition into a new build home? Here’s a bit more on how it works.
- You request a cash offer on your current home — it’s about as fast and easy as tying your shoe
- If you move forward and accept the offer, we give you up to nine months to close — six months beyond what we typically provide (just because we like you)
- You’re allotted five days to move after the sale closes — two days beyond what we usually provide (just because we really like you)
- You choose the actual closing date of your old/current home
- We offer you a free local move when you’re ready to move into your new build
We’re also excited to let the world know we’ve hired to help oversee our homebuilder partnership program. As Offerpad’s National Director of Homebuilder Alliances, LaFranchi will help cultivate the program as it expands into new markets and finds additional homebuilders to collaborate with down the road. He brings a lot of experience to the table as a former Senior Sales Manager with Zillow Group. He was distinguished among home building’s most influential young leaders earlier in 2018, joining some elite company in Professional Builder’s 40 under 40.
The benefits of a new build home
If you’re in the market for your next home, it’s worth your time to consider the many benefits of a new build. For starters, if you’re looking for a home that’s move-in ready, new construction homes will fit the bill. Another great benefit is these homes generally incorporate modern materials, ensuring they’re energy-efficient and environmentally friendly right out of the gate. Another thing you might love, it’s easy to find the perfect, contemporary floor plan that suits your style. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, too — by teaming up with some of the top homebuilders in the country, the benefits of your new build home are far reaching.
No matter what kind of home you’re looking for — new build or otherwise — Offerpad can make the transaction a breeze. For more information about taking advantage of our HBA program and market availability, don’t hesitate to contact us. As always, you can view other available Offerpad homes for sale on our website.
Happy home hunting!
