The smartest way to buy before you sell

Move into your new home while Sweetly markets, and services ALL the expenses on the home you'll sell. You don't need to pay two mortgages at the same time!

How the Sweet Swap Works

Unlike a traditional home sale and purchase where you can miss out on your dream home while waiting for your current home to sell, The Sweetly Home Swap lets you access your home equity to use as a downpayment, and BUY the new home you want. Sweetly will list your previous home for sale and even make all the monthly payments until it’s sold. You simply pay us back once your old home sells.

Get Pre-Approved
