Buy Before You Sell FAQs

Who would benefit from a Buy Before You Sell program?

Homeowners who need to sell their existing home before buying a new home, but want to place a competitive offer on their next home without a home sale contingency in place.

What is a Backstop Offer?

A Backstop Offer is a program provided by Ribbon that places an offer on a homeowner’s existing home to remove the home sale contingency on an offer they intend to place on a new home. This allows the homeowner to place their best offer in a competitive market and win.

How does Ribbon’s Backstop Offer work?

1. Get Qualified: Fill out our qualification form to see if your client is eligible for our program
2. Backstop Offer Program Agreement: If eligible, we’ll send along our Backstop Offer Program Agreement with an offer to purchase the home at an agreed upon price. 
3. Shop Around: With our offer in place, the existing mortgage is removed from the DTI, so you can  shop around for their next home and make a strong home sale contingency-free offer to stand out to sellers. 
4. Move Out, Fix it Up & Sell: They’ll move into their new home and spend time fixing up their existing home.
5. Exercise the Backstop Offer Guarantee: If you’re not able to sell on the open market for the best possible price within 180 days, EasyKnock will purchase the existing property at our pre-agreed price.

What everyone is saying...

Agents, buyers, and sellers alike all agree: Ribbon makes real estate simple and easy.

My family’s experience with Ribbon was great! We worked with Mark and Jella, and both were so helpful throughout the process.

Our seller told us that the compelling cash offer we made via Ribbon was the reason she accepted, and it allowed us to buy and sell without having to move into rental housing in between.

The Ribbon Team has made the entire process streamlined and effortless.

It really helped us be less stressed, while being able to secure the home we love in a competitive market with a better offer. I would recommend and thank them!

It was a great situation, when a customer was not able to buy their dream home before selling their current home. They wanted a ground floor situation to retire to and they had to sell their current home to finance the purchase. They moved into their new home and in 8 weeks they sold their home and were able to get a mortgage for the new home for their retirement years.
