At UpEquity, our Trade Up Program has leveled up. We are excited to announce that we've made some big changes to innovate and simplify the Buy Before You Sell process.
What is it?
Our Trade Up program, also known as Buy Before You Sell, lets you find, buy, and move in to your new home before you sell your old home. This advantage allows you to unlock the equity in your old home, shop for your new home contingency-free, move on your timeline, and sell for full market value.
No up-front costs to start
This now program costs nothing to start. You simply complete our online application to give us a little more information about your current home and where you are in the home buying process.
We've eliminated the control fee and reduced the Trade Up program fee from 1.95% to 1.25%. This new reduced fee is now charged on the New Home instead of the Old Home.
You can rest assured that this is the most cost-efficient Buy Before You Sell program on the market.
Our Buy Before you Sell program helps agents eliminate home sale contingencies and push stuck deals across the finish line. The buying and selling process is already complex. Simplifying our Trade Up program makes it easier on agents to explain to their clients.
At UpEquity, we believe in keeping agents at the center of every transaction. Unlike other programs, our Trade Up program allows homeowners and their agents to remain in control of the listing, marketing and selling of the Old Home.
How does the Trade Up Program work?
Our Buy Before You Sell program gives you a guaranteed offer on your current house. Our offer is for full market price.
You'll get the full market price in 2 installments. The first installment comes immediately before closing on your new home. This lets you pay off your old mortgage and make a new down payment. Once you've moved into your new home, we'll work with your agent to find the best offer for your old house. Once you choose an offer, we'll close the final sale. You'll then get paid for your remaining equity.
