Realogy Holdings has teamed up with Home Partners of America, a real estate investment and management company, to launch two new programs, RealSure Sell and RealSure Mortgage.
The first program, RealSure Sell, gives qualifying home-sellers a cash offer upon listing. The cash offer is valid for 45 days, during which RealSure will market the home to get the best price.
RealSure Mortgage then comes in to enable a seller who is enrolled in RealSure Sell to secure a mortgage and make an offer on their next home before their current one is sold.
"Today is an exciting day for home sellers as Realogy and Home Partners of America launch RealSure, which offers two new programs for consumers to sell and buy their home with the guidance of one of our great affiliated real estate agents," said Ryan Schneider, chief executive officer and president of Realogy. "It is also an exciting day for Realogy-affiliated agents and franchisees as we continue to arm them with unique programs to better serve their clients."
The programs are currently available in Dallas and Denver through affiliated brokerages, including Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA or Sotheby’s International Realty.
In November, the companies plan to roll out RealSure Sell and RealSure Mortgage in Chicago, Houston, Austin, Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota, and Fort Myers.
"We're delighted to partner with Realogy and their affiliated real estate agents, helping more people sell their homes with more choice and control, all while being able to close with greater confidence and less risk," Home Partners of America Chief Executive Officer Bill Young said. "Today's residential market is being transformed by technology, so sellers and their agents need new tools in order to move forward with both certainty and flexibility."
