UpEquity offers mortgages and refinancing loans with competitive rates. Mortgages for new homebuyers come with a $10,000 On-Time Closing Guarantee.

UpEquity was founded by Tim Herman and Louis Wilson while they were attending Harvard Business School. The company was invited to join Y Combinator's Summer 2019 batch.

By offering to pay a financial penalty to sellers should closings be delayed, UpEquity enables financed offers to compete with cash, and ensures all involved can move faster.
