Has this happened to you? You’re looking for your dream home. You’re pre-approved for a mortgage. You walk into the perfect house confident, ready to make an offer and … find yourself at the end of the line with 20 offers ahead of you. (Cue Kevin McCallister scream.)
It’s like a feeding frenzy out there today in the 2021 real estate market. But don’t despair! With interest rates projected to remain low (in its most recent mortgage finance forecast, the Mortgage Bankers Association foresees the 30-year fixed mortgage rate averaging 3.4 percent across 2021. By contrast, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, respectively, expect rate averages of 2.8 percent and 2.9 percent) and home prices high, whether you’re a buyer or a seller, the traditional spring home buying season is a great time to make a move. And Offerpad is here to help!
The New Way to Buy and Sell a Home
There are lots of ways to buy and sell a home these days – ibuying, using a traditional REALTOR®/agent, or navigating the waters with a DIY deal. But in today’s market where timing is everything and can be the difference in getting that home of your dreams or not, you need the best way to buy and sell a home.
That’s where we come in.
Offerpad can provide you with the certainty, convenience and control you need in managing one of the most important personal, financial and stressful decisions of your life. (No pressure; we take that off, too.). With custom selling solutions to make selling your home easy, including lots of options and choices so you can decide what works best for you and your situation.
Let’s look at some possibilities.
Move to the Head of the Line
Money talks, especially now. As of December 2020, according to the National Association of REALTORS®, nearly 20% of real estate transactions were all-cash sales. With a cash offer in your pocket, you can move to the front of the line a lot quicker.
Say you’re at an open house (along with dozens of other buyers) and you fall in love with the home and want to make an offer on the spot. But you have to sell your existing home before you can buy a new one. No problem.
With an Offerpad EXPRESS cash offer in hand, you can put in that offer knowing your current home is sold, with a flexible closing date of your choice so you can move as quickly as you’d like. No showings. No listings. No hassles. You even have the ability to stay in your current home up to three days after you close if you need to. And if you’re buying local, Offerpad will even move you into your new home with a professional moving service. For free. (See? We told you; no pressure.)
The New Way to List Your Home
If you have the time, maybe you want to list your home before buying a new one. In today’s seller’s market, listing with Offerpad FLEX can help you maximize your home’s value so you hit the open market with maximum muscle and a strong listing price.
Offerpad FLEX comes with powerful marketing and value-added benefits to help you get the most out of your home. You’ll partner with a local licensed Offerpad real estate agent (we call them Solutions Experts, because, well, that’s what they are) who knows your area and market best, and who will help guide you through every step of the process to make it as easy as possible.
You’ll also have your own concierge team to help make sure your home is show-perfect, including services like free lawn and pool care while it’s listed. We’ll even advance you any needed funds for home improvements you might want to make — and make them for you, too — so you can sell for even more. And to give you even more flexibility, Offerpad FLEX comes with a back-up Offerpad EXPRESS cash offer* you can choose to accept at any time while your home is listed with us should your needs or situation change. Talk about certainty!

Selling your home your way is what Offerpad is all about. Whatever works for you, we’re here to help make it easy. You even have the option of bundling Offerpad services, such as selling directly to Offerpad then buying an Offerpad home, back-to-back, or listing with Offerpad and buying an Offerpad-owned or listed home to enjoy even more advantages and cost savings throughout the process.
