121. Shared Appreciation Investment – invest in someone else’s home, providing them with part of the down payment to buy the home or cash in exchange for some of their equity.

Typically, no payments are required, but when the home is sold or refinanced, the investor gets their equity share back plus a proportionate amount of the appreciation.

With a co-owner of the property actually living there, the property should generally be well maintained since they want a nice place to live and also have money invested in the property.

Some California homebuyers have turned to shared appreciation investment programs to raise enough money for a down payment.
