  • For example, a home appraised for $400,000 could be discounted 15% by the investor, making the property worth $340,000 according to the agreement. You’ll also pay for the appraisal, escrow and title fees, and recording of the lien. In the end, the SAM gives you a lump sum equivalent to 10% to 20% of your home’s equity, but receives a 15% to 30% share of ownership.

    In sum, this is not a loan but rather an investment. The investment carries risk for both the homeowner and the shared appreciation mortgage company. Even SAM companies will tell you that the terms are in their favor because they are helping people who don’t have the option for prime loans from traditional lenders.
