Why a Guaranteed 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!
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 6 years. We pay you rent, even if there is no tenant.
- Guaranteed rental amount
- Guaranteed payment
- Guaranteed less stress

about our people and our services.
Marketplace Homes is a great real estate company! They worked tirelessly to list my house for sale, negotiated the price with agents for me, and got me more than I thought we could get! Cassie Ott was professional and gave me great advice on how to prepare for the transition to my new house. Excellent experience! Will def recommend.
We just had the pleasure or working with the team at Marketplace Homes and it was an absolute pleasure. They are professional, clear and concise with their communications and always respond in a prompt and courteous manner. We look forward to working with them again in the future!
Mike T. was amazing in helping us sell our home in Katy, TX so that we could move into our dream home!! The Marketplace Homes team bought our house so we didn't even have to go through the process of showings, it was the simplest way ever to sell our home....we can't recommend them enough.
Marketplace Homes did a great job marketing our home so that we can purchase our dream house. They asked the right question, stayed in constant communication, sent out a professional photographer and much more. The team is knowledgeable, like able and helpful. We sold our home very quickly thanks to them!
Working with Jon has really been a lot easier then I expected. My wife and I are both doing a 1 yr tour in Afghanistan and the Marketplace team has made sure to remedy any issues no matter what time we contacted them. True professionals that stick by their word.

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?
No one visits my home… how do you know how awesome my home is?
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.
