Haus is a New Way
To Sell Your Home


We believe if you simplify the steps and enable people to do more for themselves in a trusted way, the cost and frustration can be dramatically lessened.


Haus (pronounced “house”) started as an online approach to open and fair home buying and selling. We wanted to relieve the anxieties and headaches associated with the existing real estate process. Since our founding in 2015, we’ve learned that buyes and sellers need an alternative to that process.

Our Team

Haus was founded at Expa, a startup studio that works with founders to develop and launch new products. Garrett Camp, co-founder of Uber and StumbleUpon and founder and CEO of Expa, serves as the partner for Haus advising on product strategy and design.
