Most of my clients are looking for the opportunity to find a move-up home or a down-sized home, but really don't want to sell their current house until they find that replacement home. Unfortunately for them, most sellers don't want a buyer that cannot buy unless they sell their current house. They want non-contingent buyers who are really ready to move forward with the purchase. 

There are only three ways to make that happen:

1.  Have enough money saved for the down payment and enough income to cover both mortgages. You can go out and find and buy your replacement home and then put your current house on the market.

2.  Sell your house, move into a rental property, then buy your replacement home.

3.  Find a way to get a sale guarantee that your lender will accept so that they approve your purchase of the replacement home as a non-contingent buyer. 

Most of us cannot do number one, so we really only have the last two options. Additionally, most people really don't want to have to move twice unless they are relocating to a new community and they want to get a feel for the new town before they decide where to buy.

So, that leaves us with finding out how to get a sale guarantee that will put us in a position to buy the replacement home before we have actually sold our current house.

Fortunately for you, we at Coldwell Banker, have a pair of programs that work together so that you have the sale guarantee as well as a lender who will put you in a position to be a non-contingent buyer. 

Frank Monaco at Guaranteed Rate Affinity will work with you on approving your loan to purchase your next home using our RealSure Mortgage program if you have listed your house with us using our RealSure Sell program. 

Are you ready to move forward as a non-contingent buyer so that you don't have to worry about having to get your current house sold before you look for your next dream home.

I am sure that you are wondering how to get the sale guarantee to qualify for the RealSure Mortgage program noted above. We at Coldwell Banker have a program that will give you a sale guarantee when you list your house for sale with us.

Unfortunately it is not available yet for every home. Currently it is for homes that are valued at less than $525,000.

In some ways it is similar to a program you may have heard about called Open Door.

I believe that we, at Coldwell Banker have a better program, and I think we offer much more to you with our RealSure Sell program. For example, with our program, we can give you a sale guarantee before we list your home to the open market to try to put you even more money in your pocket than you can get with a simple cash offer. Our program gives you more time to decide it accept the cash offer or reject the cash offer.

We should talk before make a decision on this type of program to make sure that it is the best option for you and your family.
