lender we cover

Calque removes compliance, risk, and pricing barriers for lenders.

Calque provides homeowners with a Purchase Price Guarantee on their existing home, which ensures we will buy it for an agreed-upon price if it doesn’t sell on the open market for more. This enables you to offer loan solutions that consumers love.


The Move Ahead Mortgage

You originate a non-contingent loan on the new home and remove the existing home from debt-to-income considerations. Your consumers make competitive offers, buy before they sell, and rest easy with a guaranteed backup offer.

The Trade-In Mortgage

In addition to all the benefits of the Move Ahead Mortgage, you write a bridge loan or HELOC so your customers can use the equity in their current home through their lender to make a bigger down payment on the new one.

Calque eliminates the duplicative costs and high fees associated with other buy-before-you-sell solutions at the problem at the root--the lending process.

How It Works

4 Simple Steps
  • Calque Issues A Purchase Price Guarantee.
      • Calque establishes the value of the departing residence and offers your borrower a guaranteed backup contract.
      • If the house hasn’t sold on the open market within the time period specified (up to 150 days in most markets), Calque will purchase the home.
  • You Originate The Loan.
      • You pre-approve a mortgage on the new home that is not contingent on the sale of the existing property, removing the departing residence from DTI
      • If your consumer is using The Trade-In Mortgage, you will also create a short-term loan on the existing home to provide the down payment.
  • Purchase, Close, and Move.
      • Borrower closes on the new home and moves in.
      • Agent stages and lists the departing residence.
      • If it sells for more, we return it to the borrower.
  • Sell Original Home.
      • Upon the sale of the original home, all existing liens are paid in full.
      • Your borrower walks away with a conventional loan and incurs lower fees.

"I am sold on The Trade In Mortgage! The program is a great way to get buyers into the market; it gives them a safety net. It is also a great tool to offer your REALTOR partners; their buyers are more competitive and have more leverage against other buyers...I am very pleased to be partnering with Calque."

"I currently have one Calque deal in underwriting and a few that should come in shortly. Calque’s purchase guarantee gave a solution to a problem past clients had. It enabled them to move forward with buying a new home and creating inventory by listing their current home."

"I had a client that needed to move quickly from Colorado to Virginia due to an urgent family issue. I presented the Calque Purchase program along with the bridge loan as a solution to their problem. They wanted to move fast...Calque offered a solution to a very stressful situation for my clients."

"I was referred two Calque deals from Calque. The realtors were excited to find a potential workaround for the borrowers so that if they found a house they loved, they could use Calque to get a non-contingent offer and a bridge loan to get the buyer in a new home before they sell the other...The realtors getting excited about the program I think really gave me an edge.
