Can I sell my house without a Realtor?

Yes! Upward Home Solutions buys directly from home owners. The process is simple. You can either fill out the quick form on the website, or give us a call. We will ask some questions about location and condition. If the house fits our investment criteria, we will schedule a time to see the house. When we meet you at the house, we walk through and look at what repairs or other changes are necessary. Using this information, we can usually make you an offer on the spot. If we come to an agreement on a price, we will draw up a contract that is then taken to a title company. The title company prepares for the closing. You receive your money for the house at the closing and you’re done!
