Home Equity Contracts

QuantmRE helps homeowners and residential property investors access the equity that is locked up in their home, without taking on more debt.

How QuantmRE works

  • Homeowner receives cash (up to $500,000)
  • Homeowner maintains all rights and privileges of ownership
  • Homeowner and the equity partner share in future appreciation or depreciation of the home
  • It’s not a loan, so no monthly payments and no additional debt
    • Unlike debt, the homeowner’s liability is directly connected to value of the home
  • Available in 10 year and 30 year terms
  • Lien is placed on the home until the equity is returned
    • Plus a percentage of the appreciation
  • Available to owner-occupied and rental properties

What Are Home Equity Contracts?

Top Frequently Asked Questions

Is it too good to be true?
It is not free money but it is better than a loan because there are no interest or monthly payments.

What is the catch?
You have to be willing to share in the upside – we are willing to share in the downside.

Why wouldn’t I do this?
If you’re not willing to share in the upside, or you plan to sell your home in 6 months.

Does my credit score matter?
Yes, the minimum credit score is 600.

How long does it take to receive the funds?
It takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks for the process to complete.

How much equity can I access?
The maximum is 20% of the home’s current value.

What are the fees charged for this service?
There are no fees charged prior to funding. We typically charge a fee of 3-5% of the investment amount upon completion, together with any related fees (e.g.- the appraisal and city lien filing fees). These are always itemized at the beginning of the transaction so there are no surprises for the customer. There are no out-of-pocket expanses for the customer.
