Homestead (Y Combinator W20) is a start-up focused on turning underutilized space into new housing. We have one goal: help solve America's housing crisis. Homestead's development platform uses technology to bring design, financing, permitting, and construction management into a seamless experience for homeowners.Recent legislation (California's ADU laws & SB 9) makes it easier for Homeowners to develop new housing on their own property. The problem is that the average homeowner is not prepared to manage (or finance) such a big undertaking. Homestead makes adding an ADU (see some examples here) or building a second unit as easy as saying "Yes".With the passage of SB 9, Homestead will help homeowners split their lot, secure financing, permit, design, & build entirely new homes in their backyard. Homeowners have the option to put down $0 and split the profit with Homestead on the sale of the new property — making $300k-$1m without spending a dollar.TechCrunch named Homestead one of the top 20 YC companies in 2020. We're backed by top-tier investors who originally funded Airbnb, Netflix, & Doordash. We are a group of pragmatic idealists, and we're looking for high-energy team members with a strong belief in social justice, affordable housing, and fair living for all.
