The Transaction Basics
Vesta Equity's solution allows homeowners to sell equity to property investors through an equity sharing structure that ensures the homeowner retains full residential rights with no term length. In exchange for funds from property investors, a homeowner sells the financial rights to a percentage of their property's equity and future value. The home equity is realized when the property is sold.
