Frequently Asked Questions

What is Pinnacle Forward?

Pinnacle Forward enables homeowners to unlock their home equity so they can make a strong, non-contingent offer on their next home before they sell their current house.

Pinnacle Forward also allows homeowners to avoid living through renovations, showings, and the uncertainty of a traditional sales process.

With Pinnacle Forward, sellers can move forward at their own pace with peace of mind.

How does Pinnacle Forward work?
  1. Pinnacle Forward acquires your property for an initial payment of up to 75% of the current value of the home, unlocking the majority of the seller’s equity and enabling them to pay off any mortgages
  2. Once the seller moves out, Pinnacle Forward prepares the home for sale with our expert designers and proprietary vendor platform
  3. Pinnacle Forward resells your home for top dollar and the seller keeps all the upside

That’s right – the seller keeps all the upside!

What does Pinnacle Forward cost?

We charge a base service fee that is typically 3% of the value of your home upon resale.

Since we’re paid as a percentage of the resale value of your home, our incentives are totally aligned with the homeowners’ to ensure their home sells for the highest price and as quickly as possible.

It’s also important to remember that since Pinnacle Forward prepares the property for sale and the sellers keep all the upside, the sellers may realize additional proceeds upon resale in excess of what they would have realized if they just sold your home in its current condition, which may offset the costs of the Pinnacle Forward program.

For instance, as of December 31, 2020, homes prepared for sale by Pinnacle Forward sell for 6.4% more than as-is value and twice as fast as the broader market. The seller keeps all that upside.

Is Pinnacle Forward a loan? If not, how is Pinnacle Forward different than a loan?

No, our Pinnacle Forward program is not a loan.

Unlike a bridge loan:

  • No credit application and it doesn’t impact your credit (it may improve your credit, actually)
  • No monthly payments
  • No interest expense
  • No fixed maturity date
  • No impact on sellers’ ability to obtain conventional financing on their next property because it is not a loan (no impact on DTI)
How is Pinnacle Forward different the iBuyers?

First, the homeowner keeps all the upside once we prepare the home for sale and resell it. We’re experts at preparing homes for sale and our properties outperform the broader market. As of December 31, 2020, our properties sell for 6.4% more than as-is value and twice as fast as the broader market. With Pinnacle Forward, the client keeps all the upside, whereas iBuyers keep all that for themselves in addition to their service fees.

Second, properties at all price points and in all geographies qualify for Pinnacle Forward. Less than 5% of existing homes qualify for iBuyer programs.

Third, Pinnacle Forward service fees are up to 75% less than other iBuyers’ fees. That does not include the money sellers leave on the table with iBuyers because they keep all the value they create by preparing your home for sale.
