About HomeVestors of America® / We Buy Ugly Houses®

We've been America's number one cash home buyer since 1989. HomeVestors of America®, also known as We Buy Ugly HousesĀ®, has a dedicated company vision to transform the real estate industry so that everyone wins.

HomeVestors of America, Inc. was founded and began franchising in 1996. Since then, HomeVestors independently owned and operated franchisees, commonly known as the We Buy Ugly Houses people, have purchased over 50,000 homes nationwide.

All Cash Home Buyers

We Buy Ugly Houses franchisees are home buyers who purchase "ugly" homes. This includes homes that are difficult to sell for a number of reasons, and also homes that have their owners in ugly captive situations. We pay cash to purchase these homes from their owners, rehab them, and then sell or rent these homes to investors, buyers and tenants.

In doing so, we're home buyers who help the owners get out of their ugly housing situation so they can finally move onto a new life, and we provide outstanding opportunities for renters and first time homebuyers while dramatically improving neighborhoods throughout the process.

HomeVestors Franchisees

HomeVestors of America has around 200 franchisees spanning across 33 states and growing. The HomeVestors business model includes systems and strict codes that ensure the responsible business practices and high ethical standards of our franchisees.

The HomeVestors / We Buy Ugly Houses franchise is a low cost opportunity for investors interested in building wealth through their own real estate investment business. Our unique franchise opportunity includes proprietary software that franchisees use to build their business by giving them the tools to accurately evaluate homes for purchase and estimate repairs. We also provide mass advertising campaigns and direct selling campaigns that help our franchisees identify investors and home buyers with a stake in area neighborhoods.

HomeVestors provides consistent support to our We Buy Ugly Houses franchisees so they continue to build their real estate portfolios while generating positive equity and cash flow by acquiring homes at discount prices, renovating them, and then either selling them to home buyers or renting them.
