Unless you’re in the market to buy a new house or sell your current one, the state of the real estate industry is probably not top-of-mind. For an industry that has been stagnant for more than 5 decades, a ton has changed in just a few short years. The days of listing a house, having strangers touring it, negotiating, costly repairs, deals falling through, not knowing when it will close, can finally be over!
There is a revolutionary company completely changing how the process. They’re shaking things up by moving it nearly all online. Three years ago, Offerpad was formed, with the mission to streamline the process of buying and selling a home. Currently they’re available in more than 500 cities and by 2020, they’ll be buying homes in 2,000+ cities. That being said, now is the time to ask yourself the question: ‘Should I sell my home and what’s the next step I want to take in life?’
Who is Offerpad?
Offerpad, founded in 2015, is headquartered in Arizona and provides cash offers for homeowners looking to sell their home a different way. They remove many of the pain points associated with selling a home and allow it to happen on the consumer’s timeline. With Offerpad, homeowners can select their closing date, which means they can move out in just a few weeks, or if they need more time a closing date can be schedule months down the road. Either way, Offerpad provides a cash offer, allowing seller the ability to move freely onto their next home.
How Offerpad Helps Homeowners
If you’re a homeowner, you’ve already experienced the traditional process of finding available real estate and buying a house, but things have changed in your life and you’re looking forward to selling and moving into something different that suits your needs. Maybe your family is expanding and you need to bump up your square footage. Or possibly the opposite, you just became an empty nester and want something much smaller to live in. You could be interested in moving to a new city, or even across the country. There are several factors that lead to why one would be interested in buying a new home and selling your current house. No matter what your situation may be, there are easier and less stressful options than there used to be.
One of those options is Offerpad. They buy the houses directly from homeowners. If you go to their website, all you have to do is enter your property address, share details about your house and upload a couple of pictures. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive an email with a purchase offer for review. No obligation, completely free.
Sell Fast or Sell on Your Personal Timing
So now you know how you can sell your house fast or at your own pace. For those that are looking for a new and innovative way to buy a home, they’ve got you covered. Offerpad has bought thousands of homes from sellers looking to upgrade into their dream home. They take on the responsibility of making the home buyer-ready, and if it sits on the market for 60+ days, not your problem.
After Offerpad has made minor renovations, updated appliances and incorporated enhancements to make the home ready for market, they add Instant Access to the home.

With the app you can also make an offer right then and there on the house or see more nearby Offerpad homes.
Offerpad is just getting started on evolving the process of buying and selling a home. The company has made great strives in the industry by also offering customers mortgage loans with Offerpad Home Loans through a partnership with LoanDepot. Earlier this year, Offerpad announced a partnership with fast-growing company Bellhops, providing their customer a free local move. We can expect to see more changes in the once idle industry because of companies like Offerpad.
