How Does A Home Sale-Leaseback Work?

You may have heard of sale and leaseback in commercial real estate, wherein a property owner leases their space to a local business instead of outright selling.

But despite this being a popular option in the commercial market, the idea of a homeowner selling their house and leasing it back was simply not something people knew they could do— until now.

FAQs About A Residential Sale & Leaseback

Because Stay Frank.’s home sale-leaseback program is truly unlike traditional lending models, it’s no surprise you have questions! Get your answers, instantly.

What is a home sale-leaseback exactly, and why is it a smart option?

To understand how Stay Frank.'s program works, let's break down the phrase into its two core parts: "home sale" and "leaseback."

  1. The first part, “home sale,” is a direct translation: it implies you are selling your house. In a sale-leaseback real estate arrangement, we connect you with trustworthy investor partners who offer you a fair market value to buy your house.
  2. The second part of the phrase— “leaseback”— is a key addition: you as the homeowner sell your house to our trusted investor; however, you get to lease it back. This means you will still live in your home as a temporary tenant. You simply become a renter by signing a lease and paying a monthly fee to stay in the home for a predetermined amount of time. That’s why a home sale-leaseback is also often synonymously referred to as a “sale-and-leaseback,” because you are selling your home while continuing to live in it as a leasing tenant for a bit longer.

What qualifications must I meet to be eligible for your home sale-leaseback program?

We will ask you a series of simple questions about you and your home to qualify you for our home sale-leaseback program, including:

  • Your employment status
  • How many bedrooms and bathrooms your house has
  • How much cash you are looking to get from the final sale

Check out our Do I Qualify? page for a full list of qualifications.

Do I have to move out of my house?

We’re going to give it to you Frank: Ultimately, yes, you have to move out. However, the benefit of leasing your home as a tenant is prolonging the “when.” Most Stay Frank. customers stay anywhere from a few months to up to 5 years. The average customer signs a 2-year lease.

We know it can be hard to say goodbye, however, the point of our home sale-leaseback program is to help you transition into the next chapter of your life. You are selling your house to start over in a better financial position— and we’re here to help you ease into your new home with less debt and stress.

I don't know where I would be had it not been for Stay Frank's program. When everyone was saying no, sorry, can't help; Stay Frank. said no problem. The staff is phenomenal! They answered all of my questions. Thank you!

Stay Frank. provided and excellent service with their Cash & Stay program. They met all our needs and prior to their team reaching out, there were not many options. We had a hard time with any other company meeting our needs. Needed to lease prior to our new home being completed and we got it with Stay Frank. Much easier to plan our move without having to do it twice which has allowed my family to concentrate elsewhere. The everlasting relationship built with this company is the best and I gladly would recommend their services.
