Why a guaranteed home lease matters when building your new construction home

Building a new construction home is the American Dream! However, it can often take 120 to 500 days to complete and if your old home sells too fast or too slow, the dream can become a nightmare!

Did you know, over 25% of all homes built in the US do not close with the person who originally purchased them because of a home-to-sell issue? This is where Marketplace Homes’ guaranteed lease program comes into play. Zero percent of Marketplace Homes customers have home-to-sell issues because we agree to lease their homes for up to six years. This means saving tens of thousands in lost funds and stress.

Enjoy the convenience of letting us do the heavy lifting and trusting our experience to work on your behalf. Through our creative solutions, we’ll help sell your existing property — even if that means leasing it from you for a period — so you can start enjoying your new build. Work with us to rest easy that the dream home you’re building will be yours.

Sell too slow

  • Double payments
  • Massive price reductions
  • Cancelling on your completed home

Sell too fast

  • Expensive double move
  • Pricey hotels for months
  • Having all of your belongings in boxes

How it works

If you agree to build a new home through a partner builder, we’ll agree to a guaranteed lease on your existing home for up to six years. We pay you rent, even if there is no tenant.

  • Guaranteed rental amount
  • Guaranteed payment

Frequently Asked Questions

What price will you guarantee?

We agree to a price ahead of time based on our market analysis of your property. If you don’t agree, you do not have to move forward with our team.

What is the cost of the program?

Marketplace Homes will list your home for a 1% list side commission. In most areas, we recommend offering the co-opting agent 3%. That means the total cost is 4%. On a $300K home, this would save you $6K from traditional pricing models.

How fast can you close?

We close on the old home the same day as the new home and can be as fast as 1 week. A typical timeframe is about a month.

How slow can you close?

We can wait for over a year if needed to accommodate the builder’s timeline. Common is 30 days to 6 months.

Can I buy a used home?

Marketplace Homes will act as the buying agent on the new home and will be the selling agent on the old home.

What if I am moving across the country?

We are uniquely set up to be able to handle a guaranteed sale in one state and assist when you buy in another.

What if I have multiple homes?

We often guarantee multiple home sales if you buy a new home. Many times this has assisted newly married couples that have 2 homes and are consolidating households.

What if I can’t get a loan?

You need to pay cash or have a good source for funding your new home. We work with many professionals and can offer recommendations, but we are not a financing company.

What is the cost if you buy the home?
We purchase the home at fair market value less a 10% commission. If you had a $100K home, you would net $90K from our purchase. That is about what you would get with a traditional agent. Consider, they charge 6%: you often have to pay 2% in concessions and 2% in price negotiations. Plus, you cannot control the timing and may have double moves or double payments.
No one visits my home… how do you know how awesome my home is?
We believe that speed is very important in real estate. In this market homes are sold very fast and if you found your dream home, you need to act quickly and get a value for your old home fast too. Technology has evolved to a place that we can get interior and exterior pictures of your property prior to even speaking with you, 95% of the time. This allows us to value and price your home in about a day. If you home isn’t in our system, we might need to request interior pictures from you.
How do you value homes?

We use advanced automatic algorithms, but we also manually underwrite each offer. This means our experienced team reviews every home to make sure that human experience can differentiate between a fully updated home and one that isn’t so hot. Additionally, our local team must review your property for accuracy as well.
