We buy houses in any condition. No realtors, no fees, no commissions, no repairs & don’t clean. Get Your No-Obligation All Cash Offer Started Below!


There are a lot of "investors" who make Offers and claim to be Cash Buyers, but aren't. In reality, these people are middlemen, trying to tie up properties, with no intention of buying them, then trying to collect a fee by assigning those properties to TRUE cash Buyers. These "middleman fees" are unnecessary and eat into your profits.

Dear Seller,  
If you're just meeting us for the first time, my name is Danny DeGrie, I'm the founder of Upstate House Partners. We understand there are a lot of "shady characters" in the real estate investing space.
So, we want to make sure you understand we are DIFFERENT. 
1 - Our focus is always on serving the person who contacts us. We don't care whether you sell your house to us. We're focused on solving problems, and if a Cash Offer doesn't solve your problem, then we'll recommend a different solution.
2 - If you want to see 'Proof of Funds,' we'll happily show you a Proof of Funds letter.  
3 - With our partners (operating in multiple markets throughout the U.S. and Canada) we have purchased over 300 properties, and we are happy to provide 'References' from our recent seller clients.

4- We use our investment business to impact our local community. To date, through ImpactClub®, the philanthropic component of our businesses, more than $2.5 million has been donated to local charities. 
Anyhow, let me repeat: 
You are right to be skeptical, even distrustful of the things you have been told, or heard, from folks in this industry. I have been at this for over a decade, and it never ceases to amaze me by how many horror stories I hear, from our sellers, the kind of crap, and shenanigans, that fake investors have tried to pull on them. 
Be smart. 
Do your homework.  
And if you have any questions, I won't bullshit you. (Being a straight-shooter is something people appreciate about us.)
PS: Here are the last 10 properties, between my partners and I, have purchased for cash. Plus, the Stories behind them. 
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
The homeowner contacted us from our FB ad. This house needed major repairs. The ceiling was caving in from a roof leak. The house was unlivable. They wanted to fix this up. But they just didn't have the capital to do so. We offered to Partner with them. 
In the end, though, they just wanted this headache to be gone!
So, we provided the Cash offer.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
The homeowner contacted us in need of a fast sale. 
This house was just outdated. It had good bones, but as you can see, lots of clutter. The cabinets were 30-years old. The carpet needed to be replaced. The bathrooms were dark, outdated, and needed love. 
We offered to Partner with them (to help them extract their ROI), but they choose to take our Cash Offer instead. The Seller had already purchased another property out of state, and was eager to get on with their life down in Alabama. 
So, we provided the Cash offer.  
As you can see, this property needed about $40K in work to really renovate it properly, to bring it up to the Pinterest Home level that we are known for creating. 
This house is now like NEW. 
We Actually Partnered With The Seller
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
This relationship came from a call off of our website, from gentleman who was interested in getting a Cash Offer on his area property.
He liked the fact that there was a Partner option and that we are straight-shooters.
He also knew one of the founders of Project Horse, a local charity, who was a recent winner at one of our ImpactClub® events.
He was a pastor looking to relocate down to North Carolina with his wife.
After a COVID related loss, he was looking to get a new fresh start. New profession and cheaper housing. 
Their home was their only retirement plan so it was important to them to maximize their ROI.
I laid out 2 options for them:
#1: Cash offer and I could close in 7-14 days. 
#2: They partner with us and our execution team and we turn his property into a Pinterest home. He is handy so was willing to do most of the work, and for the things he couldn’t do my team would step in and knock it out. This would require $20-30k in upfront capital to make this home turn key.
Originally, they wanted to take the Cash Offer because they just wanted to move on with their lives.
He asked me, “If you were me, what would you do?”
I told him if I had the $$ I would definitely do the Partner option.
It would allow for him to extract an extra $30-45k in profits versus taking the cash offer.
The timeline is 90-120 days versus 7-14 days but the extra cash was huge.
Especially since it was their only retirement.
He took my advice and that’s what we did.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
This young lady from requested a Cash Offer via an online form. From there, we scheduled an on-site inspection within 24 hours of the first contact.
The next day, we had a written Cash Offer in her hands.
The Seller made it very clear that she wanted to sell the property "As-is." She didn't want the hassle of listing it on the market. Going through home-inspections, appraisals, buyer's financing. All things that could potentially delay a closing for weeks or months. Or potentially, cost her thousands of extra dollars she didn't have. 
She was relocating to Alabama to live near family, and didn't want to be bothered with fixing the property. She knew she would be leaving money (extra profits) on the table. But, she was ok with that. She wanted to be out and on the road to Alabama in less than 2 weeks. Timing was of the utmost importance to her, which is quite common with many of our Seller clients.
We told her that closing quickly was our specialty and scheduled the closing for two weeks later.
We performed, and she was on her way to her beautiful new house in Alabama.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
Some people prefer SURE BETS. 
Here's a question for you: 
If you had to choose between selling your home in 2 weeks for $240K. Or selling it in 90–150 days for $334–$340K, which one would you choose?
The first option is Guaranteed. It's a Cash Offer. No risk. No hassle. Sign and close in 14 days or less.
Whereas the 2nd option requires extensive renovations. The total cost for the Scope of Work on this house was around $40K. And let's assume that we Partner with you and get the $40K financed. Meaning you wouldn't pay a dime until settlement occurred. Our Execution Team would handle all of the details. Contractors, Designers, Stagers, Inspectors, Appraisers, Photographers. We got you covered. 
Which option would you go with?
This was the exact question that one of our Seller clients, Angela, had to answer. Angela was introduced to us by another past client (we bought their house for Cash, too.) 
For Angela, it was time to make the decision. She decided to take our Cash Offer (option 1).
Collect the guaranteed profits and move on. 
What's interesting is sometimes the best ROI is not money. Lots of our clients want the speed and peace of mind. No hassle. No headaches.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
A local real estate agent reached out to my partner in regards to his client that needed their home sold fast.
The house wasn't in any kind of condition that he could list it for sale. He knew he needed an investor (us) that had the ability to close in 14 days or less with no contingencies. 
No home inspection. 
No appraisal. 
And no repairs.
In other words, sold 100% "As-Is."
The Seller was in a bit of a financial bind and needed Cash quickly. 
He told us that if we made a fair offer to his client, he would be willing to move forward quickly.
That same day, we went out to the property to do an observation. Mainly just to make sure house was still standing. Foundation was solid and walls were intact. Cosmetically, the house needed work, but that's our specialty.
Within 24 hours, we made the homeowner a fair all-cash offer, and closed less than 2 weeks later. 
The seller couldn't have been happier. 
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
My business partner met this gentleman after he submitted the Cash Offer request on our website. In talking with him, we learned he was in financial distress and needed a quick sale.
His first question was, “How quick can we close?”
We told him that we could close as soon as the title company could convey clear title to us. Typically 5-7 days, but no longer than 14 days.
His second question, “What’s our best offer?”
After we made it out to the property the next day, to do a quick 15 minute on-site inspection, we got to work to provide him an all-cash offer within 24 hours.
We never make blind offers, as it is a disservice to the homeowner we work with.
The scope of work to fix a property, to make it into a Pinterest “HGTV” home varies greatly from one house to the next. 
One house might need $10K in renovation. The next $100K. Clearly, this amount of work is what impacts our Cash Offer Price.
24 hours later, he had a written Cash Offer in hand.
He let us know that he felt the offer was more than he expected, and was ready to move forward.
We closed 10 days later.
He got his Cash. 
We got started on renovating another home.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
This is a funny one, when the homeowner first contacted us. She actually thought we were a different company altogether. Some big hedge fund or something. 
Nope, that's not us. 
We're operate locally in several markets. 
Initially, their plan was to wait a bit longer before selling the property. Perhaps in the Spring. As seen in the photos, the home was being renovated. 
It was a rental property. 
But then we got the text, "Hi, I have decided not to wait as long as we had discussed on the sale of this house. Please text me with the earliest appt. available for a walk through."
Within 24 hours, we had an appointment booked to see the property. 
The homeowner told us what they wanted. 
We crunched the numbers. 
And sure enough, their requested figure was a figure that we could make work of us, too. 
Win - Win.
And now, because of the renovation, the community will win too, as we increase the property values for the neighborhood, and ultimately, can funnel some of the earned profits back into our philanthropic efforts.
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
The seller of this "unpolished diamond" inherited the property and wanted a quick sale. 
This property needed about 50K worth of work to renovate it. She thought about doing the renovation, but quickly realized it would be too much aggravation, time, and money. 
The thought of the extra profit was enticing, but it didn't outweigh the 4-6 months it would take to turn the property into something that could return her investment. 
So instead, she opted for speed, which is a Cash Offer from us. 
One where we commit to closing in 7-14 days. 
Sold 100% As-Is.
No closing costs. 
No fine print. 
And that's exactly what we did. 
She couldn't have been happier. She got rid of this property and got her Cash in just days. 
Another Seller served. 
We Purchased this Property For Cash
Then We Renovated it, To Transform It
Backstory on This Property:
A real estate agent friend of ours, reached out to us. He had a seller-client that was in a bind. 
They needed to sell quickly and didn't want to list the property on the market.
The house needed a complete overhaul.
Money-wise it would have taken $75K in repairs to bring this house up to speed. Not only did they not have the money, but they were also on a time crunch. They wanted to sell and walk away with cash in hand in less than 14 days.
Traditional Sale was out of the question.
Speed was mission-critical.
So, he connected us to the Sellers. My partner quickly deployed our Execution Team to inspect the property 12 hours later, just to make sure the bones/structure were solid.
Everything checked out, so we made the Sellers a fair All-Cash offer.
A Win-Win.
We closed 14 days later, and they couldn't have been happier.

This Isn't Just A Transaction To Me, It's A Relationship!

My name is Danny DeGrie. Yes, I'm an investor. I run an investment company. But I'm a human, first. In that picture to the left, that is my wife Kitty, my two daughters, Aneese and Penelope, and my son Victor. Many fathers want to teach their kids about what integrity looks like. So do I. But more importantly, everyday, I want to demonstrate it. 
Like most of us, during this last 2020 year, I found myself in a great amount of financial uncertainty. Those first few months of the shut down where extremely difficult on my wallet and ability to provide for my family of five. Like many American families I faced hardships and potential foreclosure.
I needed to reinvent myself. What I learned over this last year was how to help families, like my own, to escape financial hardships through creative real estate solutions. I never intended to be doing what my company does now, but I'm now in a position where I can provide real solutions. I'm grateful and honored, to be able to help the families we do.  

Who We Can Help:

“Help, I need to sell my house quickly”

There is a multitude of reasons why a person or family needs to have this happen. You are in the right place. Through a simple 3-step process, we can make you a cash offer and close, on your terms, in as little as 7-days. 

Vacant "as is" properties

There is nothing more costly than holding on to a vacant property. If it's not fully paid off, there is a mortgage, there are taxes, there is ongoing maintenance that gets neglected. Each day, that house then depreciates. 

Properties that can't be financed

We see this all the time. A homeowner contacts a real estate agent. The real estate agent lists the property in the MLS. The traditional buyer tries to purchase that property by getting a mortgage. But because of the condition of the property, the bank won't lend the money to purchase. So the sale falls through. It goes back on the market. And this cycle repeats. The homeowner has now wasted 3, 6, 9 months... 

Distressed properties

If you're behind on your mortgage payment. If you have unpaid taxes. If you're facing foreclosure or have experienced a bankruptcy. If there are liens against the property. All of these things can prevent a home from being sold because the title of the property has been clouded. For us, we specialize in these situations and help families escape them.

Financial hardships

With the rising cost of medical bills, putting people in extreme debt. Or rising unemployment, or due to a downturn in a person's business, or high college tuition costs, many families find themselves needing to sell their home fast to escape this crushing pressure of financial stress. Each family is different. We customize each solution to each family.

Personal crisis / Family death 

With 50% marriages ending in divorce, and 100% of lives ending in death, this creates lots of situations where a property between a couple, or an inherited property, may need to be sold quickly for financial or legal reasons. 
Why It's In Our Best Interest To Give You The Highest Possible Offer?

This is real simple. Our company makes a profit by buying properties. Renovating properties. Then selling those properties. As investors, our first job is to create a win-win solution for both us and the homeowner we're working with. We don't make low-ball offers because no smart homeowner would ever accept such an offer. Which means, without buying properties, we could never renovate properties, and thus, we could never turn a profit. So, our first and most important objective, is to make you the highest cash offer we possibly can, so that you will see it as a win-win to sell your property to us. 


WE, Upstate House Partners, stay in business, not by making low-ball offers, but by offering you the most we possibly can.

Our Mission: 

Impact & Purpose Above Profit: Together with ImpactClub® cofounders and members. To date, more than $2.5 Million has been donated to local charities!

How It All Started

ImpactClub® was born out of a frustration. The fact is, people want to do more to impact the lives of others, but they don’t know how. This was especially true for me. So with my business partner, Ryan Fletcher, we I joined the mission of ImpactClub®. We set out to build a community of likeminded folks, locally, who wanted to invest in our local charities.  
On December 19th, 2016, the first ever ImpactClub® event took place. That night, in just 1 hour, Tom Mitchell, founder of Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation, received a donation check of $11,200 as the first ever ImpactClub® winner. 

Some Incredible Stories From Past Winners!

Rob carried what he owned from home to home in a trash bag. Rob aged out of the system at eighteen and became homeless. He relied on the kindness of teachers and he often slept in his car. Rob joined the military and then entered the business world becoming a successful businessman. He was starting a new chapter in his life and he and his partner, Reece, decided they wanted to adopt. They became foster parents.

Do you actually close with cash?
Yes we do. We will have a bank check for you at closing or wire funds to a designated account through the title company at time of recording. For legal reasons, we can’t just give you a brown paper bag with cash.
What if my home needs a lot of work?
No worries. This is why we exist. We buy homes in any condition. Lots of properties just can't be sold traditionally, because they don't qualify for traditional financing. And while homeowners could fix the property themselves, many just don't have the funds to invest. The expertise. Or the time that is required to execute a renovation. So, we buy these homes for cash, fix what needs to be fixed, then we put them on the market to be sold. 
When can you close on our property?
We can close in as little as 5 days or on your timeline. You let us know when is ideal for you and we will make it happen. Every situation is different. Believe it or not most sellers do not want to close in 5-7 days. From the day we have a signed agreement we typically close in 30-45 days. The reason for this is that our sellers typically need some time to line up where they will be living next.
Do you really mean "As Is" ?
Yes, we really do mean "As Is." Don't do any cleaning. Don't do any repairs. Take what you want. Leave what you don't want. We'll take care of the rest. Remember, we buy properties for cash and renovate them for a living. We look at the potential a house has, not at the “as is” condition. 
Why should I work with Upstate House Partners?
This is our favorite question, and the easiest. Upstate House Partners was born to create win-win situations for us and area families. Our belief: We all win or nobody wins. 99% of the time we can offer our sellers more money than our competition. We structure a purchase in more than one way. Depending on your situation, we provide a couple different options so you can choose which one works best for you.
How does the process work?
It's as simple as 1, 2, 3. The first step is to tell us about your property. And you do this be reaching out to us using the form on this page. Step 2, at your convenience, we'll schedule a time to come look at the property. And last, once we've seen the property, done our research, and understand your situation, so we know what is most important to you, we will provide you a cash offer. 
Who do you typically work with?
This is one of our most common questions. Upstate House Partners purchases homes from people of all kinds: Pre-Foreclosure due to late mortgage payments. Divorce. Relocation to another area. Probate or inheritance that needs a quick sale. Title or lien issues. Property needs to many repairs and you don’t have the money to get them done. Fire damage. Mold issues that could be harmful to your health and even condemn a property. Unwanted property. Abandoned or Vacant property. Building code violations. And more. All of the sellers that contact us are looking to sell quickly. There are definitely some unique reasons we have heard in the past and nothing surprises us. So whatever your reason is; just know that we are here to listen, help, and close when you want us to.
