Otta's take on Homeward

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Sellers historically favor more dependable all-cash purposes - but few are in a position to offer them. Moreover, nobody favors the drawn-out choreography of timing one’s home sale with a new home purchase. Homeward allows customers to make all-cash purchases on new homes via the company, who buy on their behalf and sell to the customer once they’ve closed on their existing home.

By providing a seamless experience under three companies, it is a comprehensive service covering the home-buying process start to finish. Homeward's solution is elegant, and proving hugely popular - it is currently oversubscribed in markets across the country. It’s a new, innovative development in a legacy industry in dire need of change.

Importantly, Homeward is attractive to investors - and the Austin-based company are no doubt additionally cashing in on the increased VC interest in the growing Texas tech scene. Further, following its success in the Texas, Georgia, and Colorado markets, Homeward is planning to go nationwide with its real estate solution. It has already extended to Florida and Arizona, and looks to conquer more states in the future.

Company values

  • Whether we’re dealing with colleagues or customers, we follow The Golden Rule, treating others the way we want to be treated. It’s a simple rule, but it’s also significant: we don’t prioritize money or growth over people, and we practice empathy at every opportunity
  • We work in tech and build solutions for real estate. Both are fast-paced and stressful industries. So it’s important that we focus on the larger objective rather than rushing from one task to the next. If something is out of scope, we say “No.” If something feels rushed, we pump the brakes. This calm focus helps us create solutions our customers love
  • Big problems require big solutions. We look at our customers’ experience holistically, and recognize that solving them requires collaboration across teams. This approach extends to cooperation among our three affiliate companies — Homeward, Homeward Mortgage and Homeward Title — and produces a more integrated homebuying experience


Tim studied Finance and Real Estate at Texas A&M. He also founded Mint Title, Phone Animal and The Heyl Group.
