Homeownership investment company Unison expands reach
November 08, 2018 / Jessica Guerin
Unison Home Ownership Investors aims to give homeowners and buyers access to cash for the opportunity to share in their home appreciation. In business for more than a decade, the company has been a pioneer in the homeownership investment category. Now, it’s growing into new markets. Unison recently announced that its 5% down payment program is available in parts of the Midwest and West Coast, expanding its reach to a total of 11 states thanks to a new partnership with Goldwater Bank. The program enables homebuyers to put just 5% down on an 80% loan-to-value mortgage, with Unison providing the remaining 15% of the down payment. In exchange, Unison shares in the appreciation or depreciation of the home.
