Have you ever wondered where the Fixer Upper power couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, find the houses for their business? They have a network of people who are constantly searching for their next flip. It has to be the right house – good bones, lots of potential, and purchased for a decent price.

Tim and Katie

Tim and Katie, the fixer-upper power-couple in Central Ohio, are looking for their next renovation, and they need your help.

**Perhaps you know of a house in your neighborhood that is vacant. The windows are always dark, no one shovels the sidewalk in the winter or mows the grass in the summer. You don’t remember how long it’s been since you’ve seen a car in the driveway.

**Maybe you have an uncle who is retired. He lives alone and hasn’t done much to the house since he bought it 30 years ago. There is wallpaper in the hall and a pink sink in the bathroom. Your uncle has been talking about how nice it would be to buy a condo in Florida and be a beach bum, but something is holding him back.

**Or you have a friend who owns a rental house. At girl’s night out, she was talking about how hard it is to find a good tenant. Her husband hates spending weekends doing handyman jobs at the rental. Although they like the income, they have a kid going to college soon, and she complains about how she doesn’t like being a landlord.

We pay for referrals.

Many of our favorite properties have been found by our network of friends, Realtors, and through social media.

How It Works

1. Send Us The Info

You give us as much info as you know about the house. At a minimum, we need a property address. If you know the name, phone number, and/or email address for the owner, that’s even better. Don’t worry if you don’t have contact information for the owner. We can figure that out.

Email information to Upward@614Houses.com

Call us at 614-705-0866

Submit the information on this form.

Be sure to include your contact information because we will tag the lead with your name. We want to be sure to thank you!

2. We will take it from here.

Either Amy or Tim from the Upward Home Solutions Team will contact the homeowner. If the homeowner is interested in selling, we will set up an appointment to visit the house and make an offer.

3. If they accept the offer, Upward Home Solutions will give you $100.

You will have your choice of a Cameron Mitchell gift card, an Amazon gift card, or cash. We will get in touch with you and ask you how you would like to receive your gift.

It’s that easy! One email or phone call is all it takes to get the process started.

Referral Program FAQ

Submit a property address using this form. If we buy the house, we will send you a generous finder’s fee.

Q: Does Upward Home Solutions have a referral program?

A: Yes! We offer a $100 gift card or cash award for any lead that results in a signed contract with Upward Home Solutions. Read on to learn more.

Q: What is a “lead”?

A: A lead is a homeowner that you think might sell a house to us. This could be someone you know or just a run-down house in the neighborhood. All we need from you is an address to get the process started. You can call us with your lead at 614-705-0866 or send us an email at Upward@614houses.com

Q: Do I have to know the owner of the house to give you an address?

A: No. All we need is the address. We can figure it out from there. If you have the owner’s name, phone number, or email address, please do send it to us, but it’s not critical and it won’t affect your bonus.

Q: When I give you a property address, how long does it take for you to contact the homeowner?

A: When you give us all the contact information, we usually contact the homeowner within 24 hours. It might take another day or two if we have to track down the owner’s name and phone number. Sometimes we are able to schedule an appointment and sign a contract in as little as a week. Other times, it takes a bit longer. It all depends on the seller. We have signed contracts in as quickly as 2 days.

Q: Can I remain anonymous?

A: Yes. When we contact the homeowner, we will only use your name if you give us permission to do so. You don’t even have to know the owner. For instance, if you drive by a house every day on your way to work and it seems vacant, you probably only know the property address. We would not use your name in that case. But if you’ve talked to a relative about us and you gave them a heads up that we might be calling, we will drop your name if you say it’s okay.

Q: How will you track the addresses I give you?

A: Your name will be attached to the “lead” in our database. We keep close track of all leads.

Q: What kind of homes do you buy?

A: Every kind of home, but especially ones that need some work. We buy single-family homes, duplexes, condos, apartment buildings. It could be a rental house, or a home that someone has inherited, or a place that someone has owned for a long time but are ready to downsize. We even buy homes that have liens or are in foreclosure. We buy in every Central Ohio neighborhood and city including Columbus, Gahanna, Reynoldsburg, Westerville, Delaware, Upper Arlington, Worthington, Grove City, Pataskala, Sunbury, Galena, Lewis Center, and a few others that I’ve forgotten! We do not buy mobile homes, houseboats, office buildings, or trailers.

For ideas on what kinds of situations we are looking for, check out the blog post “We Love Referrals – and we pay you for them!

Q: Do you buy houses that are listed with a real estate agent?

A: Probably not. We like to buy directly from homeowners without having to pay extra fees to Realtors. Most of the houses we buy are not on the market. However, we will be happy to talk with people who are trying to sell a house by themselves, also called “For Sale By Owner” or FSBO.

Q: How long does it take to receive my referral bonus?

A: We will send out a gift card or deliver your cash within 7 days of the homeowner signing the contract.

A: Can I submit more than one lead?

Absolutely! We will compensate you for every address that leads to a signed contract. But please don’t waste our time by giving us every single address in your neighborhood. 😉

It’s easy to give us a lead by filling out our easy, online form.

Q: What’s the difference between an “appointment” and a “contract.”

A: An appointment is when a member of our team meets with the homeowner to check out the property and go over the process with the seller. Most of the time, the homeowner receives an offer that same day. Then it’s up to the homeowner to decide if they want to sell to Upward Home Solutions. When the homeowner puts their signature on the offer, we have a “contract.”

Q: What do you do with the houses you buy?

A: We renovate a lot of the houses and “flip” them for a new family. We are able to invest time and money into a property to make it like new. This helps revitalize communities and increases the tax base for schools and public services. If we have a lot of renovations underway, we work with a network of investors to find the right person to take on the project.

Q: What if I have a house to sell?

A: Call us! We will be happy to set up an appointment and make an offer on your house. Tim will bring the $100 gift card to the appointment.

A: How can I find out what is going on with an address I gave to you?
