The Company
Perch is transforming the way people buy and sell their homes. Simplifying it all, to the way it should have always been; fair and true to market, straightforward, easy. 
Every year in the U.S., $1.5 trillion of single family residences transact, generating over $120 billion of fees in a process that has changed little in decades. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety and is filled with uncertainty and hassle.

Perch is headquartered in New York City and has 100+ employees in New York and Texas. We have raised $250+ million in financing from top tier investors including: Firstmark, Accomplice and Juxtapose.

You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
