How It Works

With Orchard, your home sale never holds you back.

Don’t let the perfect home pass you by. With our Move First service, you can unlock equity to buy your next home without rushing to sell first.

Step 1

Schedule a free home assessment

Tell us a bit about your goals and we’ll match you with one of our experienced Home Advisors. They’ll answer any questions while we conduct a home assessment to determine your instant equity -- the amount you can unlock to buy before you sell.

Step 2

Buy before you sell

Get up to 90% of your home value upfront to put toward your new home purchase. With your instant equity, you become a non-contingent buyer and can make a strong offer even before we list your home.

Step 3

Sell without the stress

After you move, we’ll handle getting your home list-ready with a complimentary cleaning, professional photos, and a 3D tour. When your home sells to a new buyer, you’ll receive the additional proceeds above your instant equity amount.

Stand Out

Need to stand out in a hot market?

Use Offer Boost to make your offer even stronger. This turns you into an all-cash buyer so you can secure the home you love. If you use Offer Boost, Orchard will reserve your new home for you with our cash, and after your old home sells, you’ll purchase it back from us interest-free.


Wait, so how does Orchard make money?

We charge a standard 6% fee on the sale of your home.

Orchard is aligned with you—the higher your sale price, the more we make on commission.
