Access your home equity without the burden of debt or monthly payments

We provide up to $500,000 in home equity financing with no monthly payments or interest, in exchange for a share in the future appreciation or depreciation of your home’s value. Noah invests in the value of a home with the hope that as the home gains value, we will share in that appreciation with the homeowner. That means we can take a much more flexible approach. We take a broad look at each homeowner’s financial situation to determine if we are going to invest in the home alongside them.

How It Works

A home value investment from Noah provides up-front financing to be used however you like, in exchange for a portion of your home’s value.

  • Receive your funds
    Use the money to achieve your goals, like paying down debt, saving up an emergency fund, or renovating your home.
  • Share your equity
    In exchange for our investment, you allow Noah to share in a portion of the future value of your home.
  • Your home grows in value
    As the value of your home changes, Noah’s Share adjusts to reflect the gain or loss of our investment.
  • Pay us back anytime before the end of the term
    You have up to 10 years to buy out Noah’s investment, whether you sell, refinance, or pay us back another way.

Noah shares in the ups and downs of home ownership. When your home appreciates we share in the gain, and if it depreciates we share in the loss.

The Financing Process

  1. Get your estimate
    With a few clicks, get instant pre-approval and learn how much funding you may be able to obtain. It’s free and won’t affect your credit score.
  2. Submit an application
    Complete your online application and upload relevant documentation to help us get a better sense of your full financial picture. Don’t worry if you don’t have everything on hand; we’ll work with you to figure out what you need.
  3. Schedule your home appraisal
    A third-party appraiser will inspect your home and provide an independent assessment of its current value. We use this value to determine the terms of your investment.
  4. Sign documents and receive your funds
    Based on your application and the value of your home we’ll make a final investment offer. This will outline your funding amount and the percentage of your home’s value you’re agreeing to share with Noah. Once you sign final documents with a notary, we’ll transfer the funds within a few days.
  5. Repay us later
    When your term ends, you buy out Noah’s investment. As your partner, we make money if your home has increased in value. If it hasn’t, we share in the losses with you.

"Their plan allowed me to use funds to pay off high interest loans and remodel my home. We have no problem sharing any gains in equity on our home with a company that provided us with funds in a manner that was so easy and required so little effort on our part."

The people at Noah were superlative. They knew the value of our home and community and invested to allow us to stay in our San Diego neighborhood.
