How HomeLight Trade-in Works

Get a guaranteed offer from HomeLight
Once approved you will receive a guaranteed offer on your current home. That’s the price you will be paid for your current home as soon as you’re ready to move into your new home.
Make a winning offer on your new home
When you’ve found the home of your dreams, Amalfi Estates will be ready to write the offer with no lending or home sale contingency. This means you’re more likely to win and can close on your own timeline.
Move in on your schedule
Once your offer is accepted, everything comes together in days, not months. You get the cash to close on your dream home and control when you move.
Keep all the upside
Once you're out of the old house we will fix it up like a shiny penny and sell it. If it sells for more than the guaranteed price YOU get to keep the extra.

What It Costs

Pricing could not be simpler. In addition to paying typical Real Estate commissions, closing costs, and repair expenses, there is a fee that typically runs about 1.5% of the home you are selling.

We find that most clients will recoup some or all of this fee by being able to make a stronger non-contingent offer on a new home AND getting top dollar for the existing home being vacant and all cleaned up. Below is a cost breakdown from an actual client.

Market Valuation $1,400,000
Homelight Guaranteed Price $1,260,000
Estimated Homelight Trade-in Fee $(21,000)
Estimated Commissions, Closing, and Repair Costs $(124,000)
Estimated Loan Payoff $(600,000)
Equity for new home purchase $529,000
Actual Sales Price $1,430,000
Actual HomeLight Trade-In fee*  $(21,450)
Actual Commissions, Closing, and Repair Costs $(124,542) 
Additional proceeds after market sale $155,008
Total equity received from sale $684,008

Who is Amalfi Estates

Can you imagine a world where sales people only want you to buy something if it is a wise decision? What if a car salesperson talked you out of buying a car because she or he thought you were overpaying? Amalfi Estates, one of Los Angeles’ leading independent real estate companies, might be that company. You see, Amalfi Estates is a bit different than other real estate firms.

Operating as a team rather than individual agents allows us to provide a concierge level of service to our clients. Having Sales Partner specialists who live and breathe our culture of extraordinary performance while always keeping their client’s best interests at heart is what sets us apart.

Alongside our commitment to our clients stands our commitment to our community. We are a philanthropic company that excels at selling real estate. “How does that work?” you might ask. 10% of our commissions are given to one of five charities: Make-A-Wish, SPCA-LA, American Cancer Society, People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) and Homeboy Industries. We believe in the principle that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

So, are we truly experts in real estate? You bet we are! Our team of spirited and talented sales partners love finding off-market properties with dogged determination and have spent 25 years compiling a database of hundreds of off-market properties. Marguleas, our team leader, has sold over $1 billion dollars in real estate and is ranked in the top 60 agents nationwide by The Wall Street Journal. He is a guest lecturer for UCLA’s Real Estate Principles class since 2004 and has published over 200 real estate articles.

And while our families think we are terrific, so do the 200 past clients who have given us 5-star reviews!

So why wait another day? Once you have chosen to work exclusively with Amalfi Estates, you will become the most informed person on the real estate market and comparable sales. Your designated Sales Partner will pamper you, and the entire process will be, as a former client described it, “Amazing.”
