Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a Roofstock customer to submit a property?

No, anyone can submit a property. You will need to create a Roofstock account to purchase and enjoy the benefits of buying through Roofstock.

What types of submitted properties are likely to be approved for purchase through Roofstock?

We use our standard Roofstock certification process in order to determine whether a property will qualify or not. In general, properties that pass certification are deemed to be strong investments in quality markets and have appealing characteristics, such as strong net yield or appreciation potential. Currently REOs, short sales and foreclosures do not qualify under this program.

How many properties can I submit per month?

You can only submit up to ten properties per month.

How much does Bring Your Own Property cost?

It’s free to submit your own property. If approved for purchase through Roofstock, and your offer is accepted by the seller, Roofstock’s standard marketplace fee applies, which is equal to 0.5% of the contract price or $500, whichever is higher.

When will I know if the property is approved for purchase through Roofstock?

Once you’ve submitted your property, someone from the Roofstock team will contact you within one business day letting you know your approval status.

If my submitted property is approved by Roofstock, what happens next?

Roofstock will connect you with a expert local real estate agent who will help you through the process. The agent will also provide you with a private link to your exclusive listing.

From there, you’ll have one business day, from receiving your private link, to make an offer. If you don’t make an offer or if it isn’t accepted by the seller, the property may become available on the Roofstock Marketplace for everyone.

Please understand that until a formal contract is signed by you and the seller, the property is likely still being marketed through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and/or other publicly available platforms and may go under contract with someone else.

What happens if I don’t submit an offer after one business day?

The property may become publicly available on the Roofstock Marketplace.

Will I still get all the guarantees Roofstock provides if I decide to purchase through Roofstock’s Marketplace?

Yes, our industry leading Roofstock Guarantee will apply if your property is approved for purchase through the Roofstock Marketplace. This guarantee includes a 30-day money back guarantee and a vacancy protection if the property is vacant.

Why not just go through my own local real estate agent and do it the traditional way?

You can always go through your own local real estate agent to find and buy rental properties. With our Bring Your Own Property program, you get our fully vetted local real estate agent plus our 30-day money back guarantee, our vacancy protection for vacant homes, a free inspection (~$500 value), the same technology we use to underwrite and analyze homes for investment potential and Roofstock’s support through the entire purchase process.
