What kinds of houses do you buy?

Upward Home Solutions buys every kind of house you can imagine, including single family, duplex, townhouse, ranch, and split-level.

It’s important to note that we don’t just purchase well-maintained homes; we buy ugly houses too. Everything from rental properties and perfect homes to abandoned houses and foreclosures in Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding areas — it’s all in our wheelhouse. Whatever you have, chances are good that we’ll make you a cash offer for it.

Our team can also help people who owe back taxes, have liens, or are being foreclosed on. We’re very used to accommodating sellers in a wide variety of scenarios, so don’t be shy about your needs! That includes out-of-state sales, inherited homes, and homes that still have tenants.

In short, we’ll buy any house if we believe it will be a win-win solution for us and for you. It’s important to us that we fulfill both sides of that equation.

Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to walk you through the process!

How much will I make on my house?

As you might imagine, this can vary based on several factors, but we encourage you to fill out our free quote form to find out.

You may think your property is too ugly or damaged, but we happen to be ugly house buyers. This is one of the ways in which selling to Upward Home Solutions is different from selling through an MLS. Since we plan to renovate most homes from the ground up, we often genuinely prefer homes in disrepair. Get your free quote today to find out exactly how much you could earn! Remember: a home needing a little TLC is no reason to talk yourself out of calling us. We buy ugly houses whenever we can… it saves us some work!

Can I sell my house without a Realtor?

Yes! Upward We purchase houses directly from homeowners all the time. In fact, companies that buy your house for cash are known as “direct buyers” because we let sellers like you cut out the middleman. Instead of spending time and energy to find you a buyer (like a Realtor), my wife and I buy houses ourselves (alongside the rest of our wonderful team at UHS).

When you sell to Upward Home Solutions, you skip commissions, showings, inspections, repair costs, cleaning costs, closing costs, and a whole lot of stress. As locals, we understand the needs of Ohio homeowners. We simplify the home selling process and make ourselves available to help you every step of the way.

The process is simple. You can do either of the following: 1. Fill out our quick form 2. Give us a call.

If you call, we will gather some basic info about location and condition.

If your house fits our investment criteria, we will schedule a time that works for you so that we can come see it. When we meet you at the house, we’ll walk through and look at what repairs or other changes are necessary.

With 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 for our title company. The title company will prepare everything for the closing.

From start to finish, you will put zero money down for fees, costs, or repairs. This is one of the many big differences between selling to companies like ours that buy houses and selling with a Realtor.

Can I sell my house as-is, even if it needs a lot of repairs?

Absolutely! We’re “ugly house buyers” after all! In addition to properties that are in good shape, our team also buys tons of homes that need substantial repair work done. In fact, most of the houses we buy need repairs. Those are actually the ones we prefer. So, please don’t worry about the level of repairs needed — we can handle anything you throw at us! The best companies that buy houses for cash know how to make the quick sell process a breeze. For Ohio homeowners, selling to Upward Home Solutions really is one of the most stress-free ways to quickly sell a house that needs repairs.

How long does it take to sell a house with UHS?

*phone rings*
“Hello, this is Upward Home Solutions. How may we help you?
“I need to sell my house fast!”

Most times, when a seller shows their home to our Acquisition Manager, Tim Smith, he is able to make an offer on the spot. That’s because we aren’t real estate agents. As direct buyers, we don’t need to go to a bank for financing. This allows us to buy houses very quickly.

Companies that buy houses in any condition — companies like UHS, that is — are generally in a position to move pretty quickly. We guarantee that you will have an offer in your hands within 24 hours of showing the property (or otherwise letting us walk through), provided the sale strikes us as a win-win situation!

How quickly will I be paid when I sell my house?

We hear this all the time: “I need to sell my house fast for cash.” Fortunately, getting sellers paid quickly is a big part of what sets UHS apart from some of the other companies that buy houses.

Every quick sell home deal is different, but the timeline is essentially up to you. Since we’re a cash buying company and have a relationship with our title company, we’re capable of closing deals head-spinningly fast. Of course, if you want to take more time, that’s fine too. Ultimately, whatever is most convenient for you — that’s what we’ll do. Whether you want to close within a week or six months from now, we can accommodate your needs.

Regardless, it won’t be long before you have money in your pocket! Selling your house fast in Ohio has never been easier.

Isn’t there a tax on selling a home? What fees do I have to pay?

While there can be, our team will pay all of that for you if you sell with us. You will pay for absolutely nothing from start to finish when you work with us. Guaranteed.

There are NO inspections, and we cover all closing costs. We make our money on rehabbing the investment, so we don’t need to make it by charging you a commission.

So, if you’re looking to avoid thousands of dollars in commissions to an agent and thousands more to the closing company, consider selling direct with a friendly, local buyer!

If I request an offer from you, am I obligated to sell you my house?

No way! Requesting an offer is not a commitment, so you have nothing to lose. It never hurts to reach out and see what we can do for you.

Will you buy my house for cash if I’m the landlord?

We buy rental properties in any condition throughout central Ohio. Even if the house has a tenant or a lease, our team can still make you an offer.

We’re even open to buying your property if YOU want to live there a little while longer! 🙂

Are you like those “We buy ugly houses” people?

Nope, that isn’t us!

Now, do we buy ugly houses? Absolutely! But we also buy cute houses, rental houses, and abandoned houses all over Ohio. We’re a trusted local cash buyer of homes in any condition whatsoever. But that does not mean we’re cavemen for some big franchise.

Our experienced, homegrown team is here to provide fair, no-obligation offers. We’ll close on your timeline with no closing costs or other fees.

At our core, we’re a local husband-and-wife team providing a convenient, simple, and quick home sale option for Ohioans.

Who puts up “We Buy Houses” signs?

Not Upward Home Solutions! Most of our business comes from word of mouth because there’s no better advertisement than a satisfied seller. That’s why you’ll never see a shady streetside sign with our name on it.

We buy houses for cash, yes. But we approach it honesty and with integrity. Our team believes companies that buy houses have a responsibility to their sellers. If we think you can get a much better deal selling with a real estate agent, we will tell you that.

Do you pay for house referrals?

Absolutely! We have a generous referral program, and we pay out bonuses every time we buy a house that you tell us about.

Most people know a friend, neighbor, or relative who wants to sell their house, but they may not want to go through a real estate company because of the stress, upfront cost, or uncertain timeline.

All you need to do as a referrer is to send us the property address and the owner’s contact info, if you have it. When we sign a contract for purchase of the house, we will send you a $500 referral bonus. Now that’s some easy money!

For more information about our referral program, please check out our blog post on referrals.

Is it a good time to sell a house?

We buy ugly houses (and other properties in any and all conditions) year-round. But is now a good time for you to sell?

Determining the best time to sell a house can come down to a wide variety of factors, but the housing market remains favorable to many sellers in 2023. We’d be happy to help guide you through the process of deciding if a quick sell would benefit you in your current location and scenario.

What’s a short sale?

Short sale homes are homes sold below their value as a last-ditch effort to stay above water. These sort of transactions do not represent the type of win-win solution our team aims to bring to homeowners. In fact, some companies that buy houses for cash will prey on this type of seller. We don’t want to see that happen, but we also understand that sometimes a quick short sale is the only remaining option. If you’re forced into selling for financial reasons, give our team a call. We will do what we can to propose a mutually beneficial solution for your home sale.
