SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2019--Unison, the nation’s leading provider of home ownership co-investments, announced today significant achievements from 2018 including 370% YoY revenue growth, 308% YoY growth in customer transactions, and $2.42 billion in total value of co-invested U.S. residential real estate ending in Q4 2018. The company’s ground-breaking co-investment model provides access to $15 trillion of equity in U.S. residential real estate as an asset class for institutional investors. The company then deploys funding to homebuyers and homeowners as equity-based investments in residential real estate through its HomeBuyer and HomeOwner products.

“Unison’s 2018 growth numbers point to a clear break from the debt-only status quo in residential real estate,” said Thomas Sponholtz, Unison’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The inevitable turning point has come, as an ever-increasing number of consumers are realizing that Unison’s equity-based solution is a far superior way to buy and own a home.”

Whether it is supplementing a down payment to buy a home, or unlocking existing home equity to pay off debt, to do a home remodel, or to fund a small business venture, Unison provides consumers with a breakthrough alternative to the antiquated, debt-based, loan models that have been the only options in the real estate marketplace for most of the past century. Unison co-invests with homebuyers and homeowners as a true partnership, without monthly payments, and without interest, since it is not a loan.

In addition to exponential growth in revenue and customer transactions, the viability and strength of Unison’s revolutionary, end-to-end co-investment business model was validated with the following results in 2018:
