As little as 2 days
Step 3
Divvy buys your dream home

We pay for the home in cash and cover all fees, closing costs, taxes, and insurance. You make an initial payment of 1% to 2% of the selling price, which goes straight to savings for your own future down payment.

2–3 weeks
Step 4
Move in with built-in savings

Move in and make it home. Your monthly payment includes built-in savings that grow into a down payment over time. (Our program is designed for Divvy customers to become mortgage-eligible within 3 years.)

Step 5
Buy your home, or walk away with savings

Buy your home when the time is right. Change of plans? You can also move out early (with a 60-day notice) and keep your Divvy savings (minus a relisting fee).

How does pricing work?

Pricing varies depending on the home, your initial payment, and your monthly savings.

At move-in
Initial payment

You make a one-time, upfront payment (1%–2% of your home’s value) that goes straight toward savings for your future down payment.

Each month
Rent + home savings

Your rent with Divvy is based on a fair market rent for your area. Your monthly home savings* are separate, and we set them aside for you to save up little by little for your future down payment.

*Your monthly home savings make up approximately 10-25% of your total monthly payment (or roughly .10-.25% of your home’s value). For example, on a $200,000 home, approximately $200-500 per month of your monthly payment would go toward your home savings.

To find out your personal home-shopping budget, get prequalified. It’s completely free, takes 5 minutes, and doesn’t affect your credit score.

Who’s a good fit for Divvy?

If you can get approved for a traditional mortgage today, we say: Go for it. But Divvy is ideal if…

You could use help saving up for a down payment

With Divvy, savings for your down payment are built right into your monthly payment, so they add up over time. In 3 years (or even sooner), you can afford a 10% down payment on your home.

Your credit score isn’t quite there yet

We accept a minimum FICO credit score of 550—so even if you’ve hit a few bumps in the road, Divvy could be the right partner for you. Once you’ve moved into your home, we’ll pair you with a free credit counselor to help you get ready for your own mortgage.

You’re self-employed or got a new job

Divvy looks at your last 3 months of income when determining your home-shopping budget, which makes us a great option if you’re self-employed or recently started a new position. (Congrats, either way.)

You want a more competitive offer

Divvy gives you the power of an all-cash offer, which sets you apart in today’s competitive market and helps you secure your dream home.

You want to try before you buy

At Divvy, we move fast and our program is flexible. Which means you get into your dream home sooner and – if life changes – you’re not locked in. Who says you shouldn’t be able to try-before-you-buy anyways?

How does Divvy make money?

expand

Divvy makes money from your monthly rent payments and from the home’s appreciation over time. That’s it. What’s unique about Divvy is that we care about your long-term success:

You get to save for a future down payment.
About ¼ of every monthly payment goes toward your savings for a mortgage of your own. Whenever you’re ready, you can either use those savings to buy your home from us or move out and keep your savings, minus a relisting fee.

You also benefit from home appreciation.
When you move in with Divvy, we give you the option to buy your home from us at a preset price in the future, whenever you’re ready. If the home’s value rises higher than that, your preset price stays the same—meaning you could buy your home for less than its market price.
