Let’s Level the Playing Field

CoBuy launches initiative to empower low-to-moderate Income households.

At CoBuy, we’re on a mission to unlock access to homeownership and wealth creation for all. We’re stoked to announce a significant step towards that goal: a 75% discount on Shared Homeowner OS™ subscriptions for lower-income homeowners.

The system is broken

The systems that support homeownership serve one type of homeowner: married couples. For everyone else, homeownership means greater risk, higher costs, and more complexity. Co-owners don’t enjoy the same rights or protections as married couples. They also have to manage many moving parts. These include decision-making, finances, agreements, admin, risk, and exit strategy, to name a few.

This design flaw disadvantages 50 million co-owners, creates barriers to wealth, and disproportionately impacts low-income households and people of color.

We’re leveling the playing field

We created a powerful new tool to make co-owning a home with friends or family simpler, safer, and more rewarding.

With Shared Homeowner OS™, co-owners can plan and manage co-ownership together.

Shared Homeowner OS™ puts co-owners in control over the entire lifecycle:

  • Avoid guesswork and conflict
  • Save $1,000s on legal fees
  • Save 120 hours a year on admin
  • Protect relationships, investments, and the home

Instead of winging it, co-owners de-risk and build wealth.

Access for all

Everyone should have access to tools that empower financial freedom. 

That’s why we’re offering Low-to-Moderate Income households a 75% discount on an annual subscription to Shared Homeowner OS™. Participants also get direct access to our team. With this initiative, we’re bringing this powerful tool to those who need it most.

The system is broken. Let’s fix it together.
