Now that the California Dream for all is gone, I thought about this equity share and how many people fell in love with the idea. It was so popular that we ran out of money in 11 days! Do you think this option is viable for your clients as we advance? Do you think some of your buyers have relatives that would hook them up with a down payment and do an equity share? If you believe it is possible, continue to read on, as I cannot facilitate a deal like this, but I don’t need to know about it!

A buyer can set up a deal with a relative who can loan them a down payment or gift the down payment. Both transactions will be different, so I will walk you through them.

Buyer Lenny gets a loan from Auntie Greta for 20% of the $750,000.00 purchase price. We can’t have 100% financing, so buyer Lenny has to come up with 5% down. Auntie Greta loans 20% down, and Lenny has a 1st Mortgage of $562,500.00 and a second Mortgage with Auntie Greta for $150,000.00, and he puts down his own 5%! Auntie Greta can charge an interest-only payment to Lenny on the loan, and after the loan closes, they can agree to different terms like an equity share with or without payments!

Say Lenny has no money for the down, and Auntie Greta gifts Lenny 5% and carries a second for 15%, still giving Lenny $150,000.00, but $37,500.00 is a gift. After the close, they can agree to an equity share agreement.

Both are simple, and both make sense. Many relatives have money but want it back for their retirement. Buyers and giftors/loaners can write anything they want into an agreement and even record it! This loan was so popular because of all it had to offer, and NOBODY complained about the equity share. Approaching a relative with an investment opportunity vs. asking for a gift are two different things. Equity sharing is a better approach, especially if it is not your parents!
