Hometap helps to eliminate the house-rich, cash-poor crisis for homeowners, allowing them to accomplish their life goals by investing as much as $600,000 in exchange for a share of the future value of their home. As investors, not lenders, Hometap participates in the appreciation of homes — and gives homeowners the ability to settle anytime within 10 years. Unlike traditional home financing providers, the company aligns its goals with homeowners. And because Hometap isn’t a lender, the company is able to look beyond credit scores and debt-to-income ratios, forging relationships with responsible homeowners who want to love the home they’re in and still have the funding to accomplish other goals. Using innovative machine learning, Hometap has built a model that looks at hundreds of attributes to make more intelligent decisions about homeowners’ financial habits. Homeowners who were once restricted by their credit scores and other qualification criteria may now be able to access the equity in their homes without worrying about monthly payments or interest.
