Buy your new home before you sell your old one in Latinamerica

acasa is one of the first “Buy Before You Sell” prop tech company in LATAM (like Knock, Orchard, Fly Homes and Homeward in the US). Acasa makes it easy for homeowners to buy a new home, before selling their old home. The company lends the down payment, underwrites the new mortgage and takes care of selling the old house.

Nicolas Penaranda

I have been buying and selling apartments as side-business for the past 15 years. Started my career with +5 years of management consulting experience in the banking and insurance sector. In 2016 decided to quit my job and co-founded an ag-tech startup to improve productivity and efficiency for small farmers in Colombia, failed after 18 months. Then co-founded a consumer business to sell healthy snacks in Colombia and sold part of it to a FMCG player in Colombia during COVID.
