Everything You Need To Know About Buying And Selling With Orchard

Buying and selling homes isn't a fair game. Often we think that it must be left to the experts but that's not true - it has to be left to the right experts. That's where Orchard comes in.

Orchard is an online real estate company that works to help sell your home and secure a new one with cash, making the process as smooth as possible.

There are a million things to consider in the real estate process so we've put together a guide that answers your most pressing questions:

How do you buy and sell a house (at the same time?!)?

Buying and selling a house is already difficult to navigate on its own but doing both seems impossible … until you start using Orchard. Their Move First program allows you to buy your new home and then sell your old house after moving out, eliminating that awkward limbo in-between buying and selling.

You work with a Home Advisor to find your dream home and once you do, they'll help you put in a strong non-contingent offer. With such a competitive market, you want to put your best foot forward and Orchard does just that. Once you've secured your new house, you can move in right away. Now that your old home is empty, Orchard will list and sell your home within 120 days.

While 95% of customers sell their homes within that time period, Orchard will always buy the house from you after that time period for the agreed-upon cash offer price.

And don't worry, with Orchard you won't be paying any double mortgages and there are no double moves. You go from your old house to your new house - it's as simple as that.

  • How do you buy a house with cash?

A cash offer is the strongest offer, but no one expects you to have that on-hand. Orchard's Offer Boost will help your offer stand out by upgrading you to an all-cash buyer to increase your chance of securing the home you want.

  • How do you prepare a house for sale?

Staging a house for sale is key in selling. Thankfully, Orchard takes care of this too. After you've moved out Orchard's team will get your old house ready with a free cleaning, 3D tour, and professional photography - taking all the weight off of your shoulders.

If you're looking to buy and sell, Orchard is the way to go. Never before has the real estate process been so easy.

Can you sell your home online?

You can definitely sell your house online with Orchard. There's no need to trek to a realtor's office, you can get started right from your couch.

Orchard's Home Advisors are experienced, licensed real estate agents that work with you throughout the entire process.

Unlike a traditional realtor, Orchard guarantees your home will sell within 120 days and for the highest amount possible.

  • How do you find the value of your home?

Orchard takes care of home valuation for you. All you need to do is provide information on your home's condition and any unique characteristics.

Their team then takes this information and factors in their market expertise, local expertise, and comparable homes to provide you with a range of what they think your house will sell for.

  • How do you list your house for sale?

Listing your house can be intimidating, but with Orchard, you're taken care of. They'll list the house and advise you on pricing strategies and even help you prep and market your home.

Where do you look for houses online?

Stay on Orchard's site and get everything you need in one place. Browse listings and narrow down your search by home type, price, and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms.

You get a great look into every potential house all from the comfort of your home and can even customize your dashboard to view your preferred home area (kitchen, bathroom, front yard, or backyard).

If you'd like to tour any homes in person, an Orchard team member can accompany you, and when you're ready they'll help you put in the strongest offer to win.

Still nervous to move away from the traditional process? Don't be. With Orchard's Move First program you pay one fee equal to 6% of your home sale price which is the same you'd pay with a traditional realtor--except now you can get more bang for your buck.

It's time for real estate to become approachable. Simplify the process and use Orchard for all of your buying and selling needs.
