Latest course reviews

"If you want to buy a home with friends, family, or colleagues, I highly recommend you take the CoBuy course. The idea of co-buying is exciting and there's a lot of buzz. However, it's difficult to find helpful advice and facts about the process.

From my research, I believe CoBuy's course is unique and gives prospective co-buyers the information they crave in an organized way. The tips you will pick up could literally save you thousands of dollars. Pam and Matt, the team that made the course, have spoken with hundreds of people on their co-buying journey. Their expertise is seasoned, and advice is sound.

Personally, I felt more grounded and empowered after taking the course. The price is less than one hour with a good attorney; the value of peace of mind and a strategy is priceless."

"This is exactly what co-buyers need. The worksheets alone are worth the cost of the course. It provides a dynamic framework to guide all participants through the lifetime of the ownership and will provoke discussions – and avoid problems – co-buyers might not think about on their own."

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

FAQ

Who is this course for?

Anyone interested in co-buying a home, duplex, triplex, or fourplex with someone who isn't their spouse:

Friends
Relatives: parents, adult kids, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, multigenerational households
Partners
• Unmarried couples

Multiple couples, including married couples

...or all of the above.

We've helped co-buyer groups of all shapes and sizes achieve homeownership.

What's so tough about co-buying a home?

Buying—and owning—a home are fundamentally challenging. Buying with someone you aren't married to adds layers of complexity:

1. The systems that support homeownership are built for married couples, by default. Marriage creates a legal contract: a game changer for financing, owning, insuring, and transferring property.

2. Multi-party ownership requires alignment, communication, cooperation, and performance. The bar for success is high. There are many possible points of failure.

After this course, you'll be better equipped than 99% of other co-buyers to navigate these challenges.

Who is CoBuy? Why should I care?

CoBuy is a WealthTech company created by veteran real estate and finance professionals to simplify shared homeownership. We started our company at our kitchen table to unlock homeownership and wealth creation for everyone.

A few facts about us...

📍 Seattle, WA-based
🤝 Started in 2016 by mother & son co-owners
💪 59 years experience in real estate, finance, insurance, construction
👥 Helped 1000s of co-buyers to achieve homeownership
⏳ 36,500 hours assisting co-buyers & co-owners
🥇 1st company specialized in co-ownership in the US
💻 Built the 1st online platform for co-buying homes
💻 Built the 1st online platform for managing co-ownership (it's powered by the Algorand blockchain)
📚 Developed the 1st comprehensive online course on co-buying a home with friends, family, and partners

Co-buyers and co-owners need support. Unlike most real estate companies and financial institutions, CoBuy is a neutral third-party.

We do not:

• Get paid on commission
• Originate your mortgage
• Lend you money
• Take an equity stake in your home

As your partner—not a counterparty—we're objective and better aligned with your long-term wellbeing.

When should co-buyers start planning?

The earlier, the better.

We see many folks wait to prepare until they find the perfect home. This is stressful, inefficient, and leads to rushed decisions.

Co-buyers who plan and build consensus early have a far smoother experience. Their offer acceptance rate is 3-5x higher, they are less likely to encounter problems during closing, and they feel better about their purchase.

Many of the CoBuy groups we have worked with started researching and planning anywhere from two to four years ahead of their home purchase.

Why did CoBuy create this course?

1. Popular demand.
We retired our co-buying app (gocobuy.com) in 2023 to focus on our new app for co-owners, Shared Homeowner OS™. Tons of folks still ask us for help to co-buy.

2. Lack of credible resources.
Most info about co-buying on the internet is inaccurate, incomplete, and written by folks with zero domain expertise.

3. Accessibility.
We've run live events and webinars for years, and nothing beats getting face to face. Still, folks want a self-paced course. We understand the need for greater flexibility and access.

Is this course worth $249?

Absolutely. It's actually worth more—this isn't our main source of revenue.

We pack insights from over seven years helping thousands of co-buyers into this course.

When we decided to build this course, it was either 110% or not at all. We knew we had to deliver the best of all our past experience and expertise. Otherwise, this wouldn't be worth it. (Today, our main product is Shared Homeowner OS™, the app to manage your co-owned home.)

We're confident you'll agree: the 960 hours we put into producing this course deliver you unmatched value.

How many of us should sign up?

That's up to you.

It works out better for you to have everyone involved. Your relationships, hard-earned money, and (future) home are on the line. The return on investment of your time, social capital, financial capital, and energy over your co-ownership journey will depend on what you put in.

That said, any preparation and research is better than nothing.

Is there any in-course support?

Yes!

For Early-bird signups and Special Offer signups:

We offer a 30-minute consultation when all co-buyers in your group complete the course and you send us your completed CoBuy Wizard Worksheet.

For all course participants:

We provide our direct contact details and also enable in-course questions. We'll work to respond to all on-topic questions within 48 hours.
