What is Knock?
If you have to sell your current home before you can buy a new home, Knock will purchase the new home for you and will list your current home for sale after repairs are completed (they charge a fee).
How does it work?
Knock has a team of agents and managers who will explain what you need to do to your current home to prepare it for sale. Knock will allow you to move into the new home you have purchased while they list your current home for sale.
How much does Knock charge?
Knock charges a commission to sell your current home, collects a commission when you purchase a new home, charges fees and requires repairs.
Does Knock buy your home?
No, Knock does not buy the home you currently live in. Knock purchases the new home you are going to buy. Knock sells your home on the MLS.
Which companies buy your home?
There are dozens of companies that will buy your home direct. Keep in mind that companies who buy your home directly from you are going to pay below market value after they deduct their service charge and repair costs.
Do not contact Knock or any other buying companies without speaking to us first, we want to explain the pros and cons, and set you up for success based on your specific needs. Francesca Hamilton an experienced agent, gives free advice to sell your home in any condition. And if you want to buy another home, we can negotiate a better price.

What are people saying about Knock? Knock reviews?
The biggest complaint home sellers have with Knock is that the staff is constantly changing, and home sellers have to follow up with Knock to get their questions answered. Since you work with more than one Knock agent and manager or contractor there can be additional stress as opposed to working with a single real estate agent or smaller team.
Knock charges additional fees and requires repairs to make it possible for you to move into your new home before the old home is sold. With the fees and constant change in Knock staffing/contractors, home sellers feel that they don’t properly understand the process by the time its too late to go back.
Another complaint is that Knock is supposed to help buyers find a new home, but, Knock’s overwhelmed staff does not actively look for homes for their clients, so you end up doing your own research to find a home without guidance.
Why would I use Knock?
Knock is only used for home sellers that need to sell their current home before they can buy a new one. However, there are other options to buy a new home before you sell your old home if you are working with an experienced real estate agent. Additionally, an experienced agent can focus on your home instead of jugging too many customers at once like the big company Knock.
Since Knock is new to the Phoenix market their contractor/repair resources and neighborhood familiarity is still in the learning stages in comparison to an experienced Phoenix realtor. For the amount of advertising they are doing, they are selling very few homes.
Francesca makes the process stress-free and easy for her clients while getting them the best deal out there.
