Real buyers win with Better Cash Offers

“We fell in love with this new house, but we didn’t want to pay two mortgages while we waited for our old home to sell. With Better’s Cash Offer, we didn’t have to. ”

Eric Kaufman

Better cash buyer

“We couldn’t put a down payment on a new home before we sold our old one. We were stuck! Better bought us a bigger place with cash, and let us close after our old home sold.”

Misty Fretwell

Better cash buyer

“We used Better’s Cash Offer to buy a home, then sold our old house in Florida. Without Better, we would have been living in a hotel with two dogs until our old place sold.”

Christine Courk

Better cash buyer

The easiest way to buy and sell a home

Be 4x more likely to get your first choice

Today’s average buyer bids on up to 8 homes—and they don’t always get one in the end. As a cash buyer, you’ll boost your odds of a winning offer by 4x.1

Buy first, even if you don’t have the down payment

You won’t need to fork over a huge down payment. And you won’t get stuck paying two mortgages at once.

Win without being the highest bidder

Sellers prefer the ease, certainty, and buyers love that cash offers pay 15% less than the average mortgage borrower.

Zero cost to use our cash

Other companies will charge you a 2% fee. When you use a Better Real Estate Agent and Better Mortgage, we’ll front you the cash for free.

How can this be free with Better Mortgage?

Better Mortgage makes money from mortgage investors, not buyers. Cash offers are 4x more likely to be accepted, and by helping customers become cash buyers, we’re able to close more mortgages. The more mortgages we close, the more revenue we pull in, which is how we’re able to offer this program at no cost to our buyers.

Am I required to use a Better Real Estate Agent?

Yes, you’ll need to use a Better Real Estate Agent in a market where we offer Cash Offers to be eligible for this program. It’s part of how we’re able to make the program possible.

Am I required to use Better Mortgage?

No, you’re not required to use Better Mortgage but you are required to go through the Better Mortgage verified pre-approval process to qualify for the offer. If you ultimately choose to use another lender to fund your loan, you’ll pay a transaction fee equivalent to 2.5% of the purchase price. Keep in mind, Better Mortgage’s rates are highly competitive, and you’ll have already been pre-approved for a mortgage with them to begin with.

What kinds of properties can I use this program on?

The only property type eligible for purchase through this program is single family residence (no townhomes, condos, or new construction) and the property must be a primary home (no investment properties or second homes.)

What are the costs?

  1. There’s zero fee, as long as you work with Better Real Estate and fund with Better Mortgage. If you decide to work with another lender, a 2.5% transaction fee applies.
  2. Once your offer has been accepted you will be required to submit a 5% Earnest Money Deposit, which will go towards your down payment at closing
  3. All buyers are responsible for paying prorated daily rent that starts once Better Real Estate closes on the home. This cost will be due when you buy the home. This is so you can avoid making two monthly payments at the same time if you are also selling a current home. You’ll also be responsible for the relevant HOA fees and property taxes on the home that accrue during this time.
