How does Unison HomeBuyer Work?

The Unison HomeBuyer program is a true partnership. We contribute up to half the down payment by making a homeownership investment in your home. In return, we receive a share of any appreciation or depreciation in your home’s price at the time it is sold. This is not a loan, so we don’t charge interest, and we don’t receive monthly payments. Instead, we hope to earn a profit when you sell your home — up to 30 years later. You can also buy us out after 3 years.
