Investopedia explains 'Shared Equity Mortgage'


Equity sharing is a great way for homeowners to join forces with lenders to create a win-win scenario for both. The former are able to get into a home at a lower interest rate than might otherwise be possible, while the latter get the benefit of an increasing real estate price without the hassles of being a landlord.
