How Does List with Orchard Work?

Written By: The Orchard Team

October 8, 2020

With List with Orchard, you can sell your home for top dollar without the typical stress or uncertainty. Our local agents will help your home stand out with complimentary listing prep and marketing to find you the perfect buyer.

Here’s what you can expect with List with Orchard:

– Experienced local agents

Orchard’s team of licensed local agents are experts in your local real estate market. They will help you find the right buyer, ensuring you sell quickly and for top dollar.

– Free listing prep & marketing

To help your listing stand out, Orchard provides a deep cleaning of your home, professional listing photos, and a 3D virtual tour, all free of charge (a $900 value).

– Marketing support

To spread the word about your home, Orchard will post your listing on your local MLS and hundreds of real estate sites. We’ll also run social media ads targeting buyers in your area.

– Optional guaranteed sale

Need to sell on a specific timeline? Orchard can make you an optional cash offer, so your home sale is guaranteed. Change of plans? You can take your house off the market at any time for free.

How it works

1. Tell us about your home

Provide some information about your home and we’ll send you a free home value estimate. We’ll walk you through the numbers and answer any questions you have.

2. Meet your Home Advisor

During your complimentary consultation, your licensed Home Advisor will help you set a competitive list price for your home. We’ll also conduct a free home assessment to help us determine your guaranteed sale price.

3. Get your optional guaranteed sale price

We’ll make a backup cash offer for your home, so your sale is guaranteed. 95% of our customers sell their homes on the market, but your guaranteed sale price is there in case the market changes or if you need to sell in a pinch.

4. Orchard gets your listing ready

Orchard will prep your home for sale with a deep cleaning, professional photos, and a 3D virtual tour, all free of charge. Then we’ll use our marketing dollars to share your home with buyers in the area – all for the same fee as a traditional real estate agent.

5. Orchard finds you the perfect buyer

Once your listing goes live on your local MLS and hundreds of real estate sites, we’ll help you field and negotiate offers from potential buyers.

Need to sell on a specific timeline? You can sell early to Orchard at your guaranteed sale price. Change of plans? You can take your house off the market at any time for free.

Program cost

Orchard’s fee is just 6% of your home’s sale price, making it similar to the cost of a traditional real estate agent. If you decide to sell early to Orchard, an additional 1% convenience fee will help us cover our cost to own and resell your home after you move.
