New Products Help Homeowners Purchase Homes and Sell Equity

In recent years there have been several companies who are focused on what are called shared-equity contracts; these companies provide help to potential homebuyers by providing a portion of the down payment; some companies also offer the ability for current homeowners to sell equity in their home which is an alternative to a cash-out refinance; investors hope to participate in the upside as property values increase; some of the players in this space are Landed, Unison, Point and Patch Homes.
