CoBuy simplifies shared homeownership. Homeownership wasn't designed for friends, family members, and unmarried couples. So we're fixing it.


We're excited to share the latest edition of our annual report on the state of home co-ownership in the US.

This year, we draw on survey data from 1,954 co-buyers and co-owners across 601 groups in 50 states and Washington, D.C. We also share insights gleaned from dealing with thousands of co-owners at every stage since 2016.

πŸ’‘ A few fast facts...

  • 29% of home purchases involve co-buyersβ€”friends, relatives, couples, or groups.
  • Across the US, there are now 58 million co-owners.
  • The average number of co-owners in a group is 3.3.

Home co-ownership isn't confined to San Francisco and New York City, nor is it a passing fad led by folks who subscribe to alternative lifestyles. Quite the opposite: co-ownership is mainstream.

Despite how popular it's become, there's a lot of work to do. Co-ownership remains poorly understood and largely unsupported by the systems that make homeownership possible.

What's inside

In our 2024 report, we cover a lot of ground and answer many questions:


β†’ Who co-owns homes?

β†’ What does co-ownership look like?

β†’ What are the challenges?

β†’ What do timelines look like?

β†’ Where do folks co-own?

β†’ Why do folks co-own?


We also explore trends, headline challenges, and opportunities going forward.
