Mission Statement

If you are a homeowner, age 62 or older, interested in converting some of your home equity into cash, this may be the arrangement you are looking for. Under the Home Equity Retirement Option you will receive between 10% and 15% of the present market value of your home in cash upon signing an agreement giving the option investor the right to purchase the property at a discount upon your death or relocation.
