Homeowner portal Milestones secures $10.3m


Milestones, an all-in-one portal for navigating home ownership, has raised $10.3m in Series A funding.

The company is striving to make it easier for consumers to buy, move, sell and manage their home.

Updater, the national leader in moving technology, led the round. The raise comes after three years of product development in stealth mode and will help fuel a rapid go-to-market strategy. Other strategic investors in the round include Second Century Ventures (the strategic investment arm of the National Association of REALTORS®), Peerage Capital, McLaughlin Ventures, WAV Group Ventures, T3 Partners, Sellers Shield, as well as individuals and other large brokerages.

Milestones said it is the first technology firm to deliver a home ownership portal similar to consumer offerings for managing healthcare, personal finance and education.

The company monitors the value of your home, provides search for home for sales and can even help manage the transaction when a consumer is ready to sell their home, at no cost.

However, Milestone said its most valuable offering is having the support of their real estate advisors in managing home ownership between transactions.

Dustin Gray, Milestones’ founder and CEO, said, “Managing a home is complicated…The average home has more than 150 systems that need to be maintained and consumers need help keeping it all organized. Gutters need to be cleared, water filters replaced, concrete sealed, dryer vents cleaned and so on. Milestones has checklists for all of it, complete with DIY videos, or access to professionals who will do it for you.”

David Greenberg, founder and CEO of Updater, added, “Convenience and simplicity are core to the Updater mission…With our shared vision for simplifying the complex homeownership processes, Updater’s investment in Milestones is a natural fit.”

Home-buying and selling is a complex and stressful experience for many consumers. Milestones’ is not the only FinTech looking to improve the experience. Quo finance, a FinTech startup that offers a faster path to home ownership, raised $72.m in a seed funding round led by SignalFire.
