Unison calls this a “home ownership investment” program. Unison’s money is not debt and you don’t pay Unison interest.”PHILIP TAYLOR, PTMONEY.COM

They act as a partner with you on your homeownership journey, whether you are looking to buy or already own a home.”DINKS FINANCE

the conforming loan rates as well as
avoiding the mortgage insurance that’s
often a burden for home buyers. The
program gave us the option and the

PERFECT HOME FOR THEIR FAMILY
— AND THEIR FINANCES
“I think it’s very fair that Unison’s not
looking to take anything from me at

partnered with us to make an
investment in our home, and then in
the future they will share in either the
