THE BASIS POINT

WATCH: Link From The Legend Of Zelda Sells His House

We all wish buying and selling a home was easier, but should it be as easy as playing a video game like The Legend of Zelda?

Vishal Garg, CEO of hot mortgage startup Better Mortgage, says it should be. Zelda games are tough, but they give players all the tools they need to figure out how they work. The home buying and selling process doesn’t always do that for you, though.

Our friends at Thrive Mortgage took that advice literally and imagined explaining the home trade-in model startups like Opendoor are building in a video game setting.

Link, the hero of The Legend of Zelda, doesn’t seem to get it, though.

Home trade-in startups want to make >buying a home more like buying a car. When you buy a car, you sell your old one, go to the dealership, get financing there, and drive off with a new car.

It’s totally unlike buying a home, which is a weeks-or-months-long process. You get your financing from a different company than where you find the home, you have to deal with realtors, title, and a host of other agents and orgs. It’s tiring.

It’d be great if one company handled everything for you, right?

But the transition to the trade-in model has a lot of hiccups, as you’ll see in the video below.
