Equity Investment in Your Home

Here is a unique and novel approach to home equity investment and appreciation. Rex HomeBuyer is new to the housing market since 2004, and is a private equity fund that uses investments by private real estate investors to help creditworthy borrowers come up with down payments.

They put up to 50% of the down payment on a house in exchange for a share of the equity whenever the house sells. There are no mortgage payments and no interest on this money. It is a form of shared appreciation.

Conversely, if the market goes down, they also share in the loss, thus mitigating some of the risk for the homebuyer.

For more information on this program, see this article from the LA Times:

Happy investing!
