Think you're reading this incorrectly. it's 30% of the increase in value of the house.

i.e. if the house appreciated by $300k, you'd pay this company 30% of that...therefore $90,000 plus the initial downpayment of $100,000. Therefore total of $190,000.

See attached image. In this scenario, your gain is $229,000 over the 7 year period, and all you have to pay back to Lendl is $180,455. Which is $100,000 initial downpayment or "loan", plus 30/35% on the "INCREASE" in value of the property. 35% x 229,000 = 80,455 + 100,000 = $180,455

Doesn't appear to be on ENTIRE value of the house as some people have stated, just the incremental.

If so, I'd say this is a perfect scenario. You're sharing in risk and opportunity.

The default calculation shows they will match the buyer's 10% downpayment for a total downpayment of 20% and they'll need to stake a claim for 30% of the property.

The buyer meanwhile would need to borrow 80% as a mortgage which isn't going to happen because

buyer's share = 10%
lendl's share = 30%
mortgage = 80%
Total claims against the property = 120%.

I refer you back to the graphic in the 2nd post which specifically shows 30% of the value and when I did my check of their calculation, it was 30% of value and not any amount of equity .

So I base my position on that and not on the way they're currently representing it.

It seems they've now morphed into something different, maybe too much negative online press.

It now says "in return for 35% <of the> appreciation in the future value of your home". (I fixed the sentence structure for them)

"Option #1
Sell your home
You have the freedom of selling your property and paying lendl 35% of the appreciation plus the original downpayment provided by lendl.

Option #2
Purchase lendl's equity
If you absolutely love your property and would like to stick around a little while longer, you can use equity in the home or any other means to pay out lendl's 35% of the appreciation plus the original downpayment provided by lendl"

So, they are basically assured to get their original "investment" back even at 0 appreciation and gambling on the average being a lot more than that.

It seems like their first version was put together before the creators had a chance to learn arithmetic and basic financing terminology.

I wonder where they're getting their funding from, and who would provide the mortgage.

There is NOTHING wrong with renting. This on the other hand is a f'ing disaster.

Why are you asking me if I can find anything else on them, I'm not your researcher.

Simple question that was directly related to your suggestion that online pressure prompted whomever is behind this to alter their scheme. I agree with you !
Given that I couldn't find anything else other than this thread online about them, I asked if you did. If there is nothing else out there ... than whoever came up with this site is in probably in here with us !

To the OP: where did you hear about this?
