Okay, let me begin this post by saying Paul and I are NOT, I repeat, NOT in the market for a new home. We freaking love our home, which if you have been around here a while, you know is our first home that we bought two summers ago! You can read more about the journey that found us this cutie little home here, but -long story short- this home is an answered prayer.
With our home buying process, we got incredibly lucky. Things sort of fell into our lap with the home we bought, and we also were on a “leave when we want to” basis with our apartment, because I was pregnant and the guy below us smoked weed so much it literally made our entire apartment smell all hours of the day. For obvious reasons, we couldn’t stay. It was a terrible situation, but it all panned out perfectly to place us into our first home.
We recognize that buying our first home with our first offer in less than 24 hours of placing it, getting to leave our apartment whenever we wanted, and moving in just a couple weeks was unheard of. But, because of that, it seriously has made me think about how, when the time comes in the future to sell as our family grows, how complicated the buying/selling process really is! Like, what the heck are we supposed to do if the perfect home pops up on the market… but we haven’t sold our current home yet? And we certainly can’t afford two mortgages, because… that’s crazy. So what the heck would we do? There are so many factors to buying and selling a home that make me so nervous! It’s like all the stars need to miraculously align in order to make it actually work.
That is until I heard about Offerpad.
You guys, Offerpad seriously answers all of my biggest fears about the home selling process! When their company reached out to me about potentially sharing with you guys about what they do, I was so impressed by them that I truly felt like, “If this is answering all of my biggest fears about selling a home in the future… I know it will for others!” I really believe in the things I share about on my blog, and this is no exception. #adulting is REAL and selling a home is probably going to be a reality for majority of us at some point in our lives. This makes it easier.
They buy your home with CASH and absolutely are the answer to no double mortgage. You for real just input your address and information about your home, here, and then I received an offer to my email for my home in less than 24 hours. If I accepted the offer, I would have the cash sent to me and I have the choice to move immediately or can even request up to 60 days to move out! Isn’t that amazing?!
Only Con: I have to be honest, our home is worth about $40k more than what they offered. However, this would truly be the answer for us if something happened and we had to move immediately. Or if we were simply upside right (meaning we owe less than we were offered) on payments and didn’t want to deal with the chaotic gamble of selling.

Offerpad is MOST DEFINITELY For:
People who need to move all of a sudden.
People who want to avoid the uncertainty of waiting for an offer.
People who want to avoid the traditional hassles like last minute buyer cancellations.
People with kids or who work from home that cannot leave regularly in order to show their home to potential sellers.
People who have pets that can’t be in the house during a showing.
Offerpad is an entirely new concept I have never heard of, and it really made me feel a sense of peace knowing this existed for our future. It’s almost silly how easy it was… ha. I did the offer with Knox and Presley around, and could have clicked “accept” and my home would be sold. It’s pretty mind blowing!
I am all about anything easy and stress-free, and that’s exactly what Offerpad does for its clients! You should just give it a shot and see if they are interested in purchasing your home. It’s so good knowing this platform is readily available for us to use at a moment’s notice.
