Best Shared Equity Loans | October 2021

These loans are not currently available in the United States but there are similar products, such as shared equity agreements you may want to consider.

Shared equity loans -- aka shared equity mortgages -- are a home equity financing product that allows you to sell a percentage of your property's future appreciation in exchange for a lump sum. Typically, the money is used to pay a larger down payment on a home. Shared equity loans made a brief comeback during the great recession, but are now extremely rare. However, there are similar financing products, such as shared equity agreements or shared equity investments, that are widely available.
