We'll Buy Ugly Houses Throughout the Bay Area

Are you looking to sell your ugly house? Proud Start, LLC is a locally owned and operated company focused on helping people with their current situation by buying their house. We buy Bay Area houses for cash and can close when you need. Many property owners think the only way to sell their house is by listing it with a Real Estate Agent, this can be a lengthy and expensive process. Even more frustrating is that you will likely be required to do some repairs since the person buying the house won’t be able to get a mortgage if the property is not in good condition. Since we buy with cash we do not have to worry about getting the bank’s approval. There is nothing more frustrating than having to start over with a new buyer after the bank decides not to loan the money needed.


We enjoy the challenge that comes along with a property that needs a lot of work, that’s why Proud Start, LLC specializes in buying houses that are distressed and in disrepair (ugly). Once the house is fixed up it will be one of the nicest on the block, improving the neighborhood and community. It is because of this goal of building a community that we donate to charity for every house we buy.


Some of the benefits of working with us:


  • We buy homes ‘as is’: you don’t have to do any repairs, leave unwanted items behind
