With Orchard, home buying and selling are simple and stress-free. Our service ensures you won’t miss out on your dream home because you haven’t sold your current one. We also take the hassle out of the closing process by helping you finalize mortgages, title, and insurance all in one place. 

Only looking to buy or sell? We can still help.

Let’s walk through some common questions about buying and selling homes with Orchard.

The homebuying and selling process with Orchard

You’ll start by answering a few questions about your current home and your home buying goals. We’ll use this information, along with our complimentary home assessment, to prepare your cash offer. This offer gives you the freedom (and equity) to start house hunting without your home sale holding you back.

Next, we’ll pair you with an Orchard real estate agent to determine your budget for buying a new home. You’ll also work with your Orchard Home Advisor to start touring homes that meet your criteria. Many of our customers also use Orchard’s real estate platform, which lets you see all homes in your area as soon as they hit the market.

When you find the perfect home, we’ll use our cash to make a contingency-free offer and reserve the home for you. You can move in right away, and you won’t pay your mortgage until your old home sells.

As you settle into your new home, your Home Advisor will handle your old home listing and find you the perfect buyer. Once your home sells for top dollar, we’ll transfer your new house into your name. You can use Orchard Home Loans or a lender of your choice to finalize your mortgage.

How does Orchard make money?

We charge a standard 5% to 6% fee on your home sale, making it similar to a traditional real estate transaction. We’re aligned with you — the more your home sells for, the more we make on commission. Orchard homes sell at or above list price 35% more than the market average.
