About HomeLight

Each year, HomeLight helps hundreds of thousands of clients connect with top real estate agents, and it facilitates billions of dollars of real estate on its platform.

Are We Meant To Be?

Are you a grad student or recent college graduate who always received praise from professors for their term papers and writing?

Do you know how to research and structure a wealth of scattered information into a coherent, organized article from top to bottom?

Do you have a passion for creative ledes and loathe the passive voice?

Can you write in a casual, conversational tone while still showing authority with credible sourcing?

HomeLight seeks to build its pool of writing talent to craft data-driven feature length posts (think of them like mini instruction manuals you’d actually enjoy reading!!) for our Resource Centers.  

Our articles are all about real estate, so you could get assignments about how to sell a house, how to buy one, or even how to be a better real estate agent. 

We’re looking specifically for writers who have a proven ability to construct longform, creative nonfiction essays or guides for the web. Familiarity with real estate is a plus but not a must.

Our articles range between 1,000-1,500 words and writers start at a $250 flat fee. Our current writers appreciate the opportunity to take on as much work as they want, and we do offer bonuses for reliability and quality. That said, please expect a learning curve and somewhat extensive edits as we get you up to speed with our guidelines.To get a feel for the content we produce, you can check out the resource center. Look at the section at the bottom with “latest posts” to see how you feel about producing content of this length and quality for the rate of pay we offer.

To help us build amazing resources for homeowners, buyers, and agents alike please send us:

  • Your resume and portfolio at least 2 writing samples, with one that is some sort of feature-length, service style guide OR a well-researched, non-fiction essay

Do not apply if:

  • You’re not willing to make substantial edits on your first articles to get the hang of our expectations and style
  • You don’t have experience conducting web research or are not willing to put in the time

Our top freelancers enjoy the peace of mind of stable, consistent work and flexible deadlines to get each draft in tip-top shape. This is a contracted position with the potential to take on as much work as you like. Writers can be based anywhere in the U.S.
