The biggest dilemma when buying a home is deciding whether to buy first or sell first.  Either way it is risky because you could wind up owning two homes or none at all.  The “Future Homes Trade-Up Program©” solves this dilemma.  When you “Trade Up” to one of our homes listed and you list your home with us, you receive our guarantee that we will sell your present home before you take possession of your new one.  This means when you find a home that you like from our inventory of homes, you can immediately place a firm offer on it so you don’t loose it to someone else that is shopping for the same home. 

Quite simply, when somebody agrees to trade-up to one of our homes, we give you a written guarantee to sell your home for the market value price we place on it, after a complete CMA*evaluation is performed (less a 6% guaranteed sale fee).  Once receiving this guarantee, you have the capacity to purchase with a firm offer any one of our listing inventory of homes that is higher in price with a minimum 90 day closing date.  If we don’t sell your home in that time frame, we will buy it ourselves at the market value price (less the above fee).  During this time, if an offer is received higher than the guaranteed price the offer is yours, not ours!  What could be a better and safer guarantee than that?

How Our “Trade-Up” Program Really Works!


Establishing the Market
Value & Guaranteed Price

After analyzing the data compiled on your present home, including a computerized printout of recent comparable sales, a market value is established, this usually takes 24-72 hours.  This also determines   your guaranteed price and the list price which you receive upfront in writing before we begin to effectively market your home.

Innovative Marketing
of Your Home

We attract Buyers to your home using innovative marketing concepts such as ourSunday Tour of Homes©”, our exclusiveTrade-Up Program©” and our extensive advertising/marketing campaign.  At most times, we have anywhere from 50 to 100 Buyers looking to buy a home right now or in the near future in the Windsor – Essex County region.

Selling Your Home

“Future Homes” conducts over 1 transaction*every business day which is why we have the confidence to offer you a guarantee that few other REALTORS® and companies would dare to make.  We guarantee to sell your present home before you take possession of your new one.  In fact, we are so confident that if after 90 days we have not sold your home, we will buy it ourselves, for the market value price we place on it (less a 6% guaranteed sale fee).  What could be a fairer or better guarantee than that!


P.S. Remember, you are in a much better position looking for homes, when you know your home is guaranteed to sell.  For tips before you Buy/Sell, we recommend reading the article entitled Positioning Is The Key to Success So, call us now about our risk-free “Trade-Up Program” at 1.800.677.5810 or 322.1234 and start packing!
