How it works for a HomeOwner

We convert up to 17.5% of your home’s value to cash, so you can live the life you really want. Unlike a loan, there is no added debt, monthly payments, or interest. In return, we share in a portion of your home’s value when you decide to sell.

How much equity can I unlock?

Choose what works for you.

Up to 500k or 17.5% of your home’s value

How can I spend the cash I receive?

Your money is yours to spend.

It’s your cash, use it your way. Remodel your home, start a business, pay for college, invest, or take that long-awaited trip. Unlike a home equity loan or line of credit, our home co-investment comes with no added debt, monthly payments, or interest.

What happens when I sell?

We share in the ups (and downs).

When you sell your home or 30 years pass, your agreement with Unison ends. Unison gets paid from the sale proceeds, based on the fair market value of your home.

Unison’s share of the change in value.

The larger the investment, the greater Unison’s percentage share when the home is sold. The smaller the investment, the smaller our percentage share.








Payment to Unison if home’s value increases.

Unison shares in the increase, getting back more than we originally invested and earning a profit.








Payment to Unison if home’s value decreases.

Unison shares the decrease, receiving back less than we originally invested and incur a loss. As co-investors, we win when you do.


4 simple steps
to unlocking your equity

Still have questions?

The short answer is that there is no catch. Unison gives you access to your equity with the freedom and flexibility to live without monthly payments because we invest in your home.

These funds come from institutional investors (think pension funds and university endowments) who want to make long-term investments in homes across the U.S. Both you and Unison benefit if the home increases in value, and we both take the loss if the home decreases in value. We see this as a win-win situation for both you and Unison.

Founded in 2004, Unison has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and we’ve been featured in New York Times, Forbes, Bloomberg and other publications. To date, we have helped people from California to Massachusetts as we continue to change the way people buy and own homes. Check out a few of our testimonials to learn more.

It’s important to us that our customers make the best decision for them and their family, so we are committed to answering any and all questions throughout this process.

Prior to partnering with you, we evaluate your credit, income and property, all of which can be done without any financial obligation to you or impact to your credit.

We will also need to evaluate your home prior to partnering with you. Usually, the home needs to be your primary residence and must meet several other criteria for us to invest.

You can use the funds provided by Unison for up to 30 years. After 30 years, you will need to either sell your home or buy us out.

To buy us out, you would need to pay back an amount equal to our original investment plus or minus our share of your home’s change in value. We use an independent third-party appraisal to determine the fair market value of your property at the time.

In some cases, after 30 years it might be possible to refinance your home and use the proceeds to buy out Unison’s investment. However, there is no guarantee that this option will be available.

You own the home! You control the property and receive the benefits of home ownership, such as occupancy rights and income tax deductions.

Unison is not an owner and has no rights of occupancy. We only share a portion of the future change in value of the home, as an investor.
