About HEIs

Home equity investment agreements (which we refer to as “Homeshares”) allow homeowners to access cash from their equity without the burden of added debt or monthly payments while delivering highly accelerated & downside-protected assets to investors.

Home equity investment agreements are an emerging asset type, with only five or six asset originators operating within a $20+ trillion home equity market today. None of these originators make it possible for individual investors to gain access to this asset, instead they deal exclusively with a few private institutions. Nada is the first to make this asset accessible to individuals and smaller firms through its Cityfunds investment product. Home equity investment agreements have proven to be an established and institutional-grade asset, similar to the mortgage debt market products, with nearly $1 billion in unrated securitizations over the past two years, and most recently another $528 million in rated securitizations with the rating agency, DBRS Morningstar.

Historically, investors have not been able to access the home equity sector due to the lack of institutional-grade assets and the absence of a publicly available private real estate fund that has this type of deal flow. Nada, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Nada Loans, LLC, is capable of sourcing and originating home equity investment agreements through its in-house licensed mortgage brokerage origination and underwriting team.

Risk Management

Nada supports Cityfunds and its investors through a two-stage, bottoms-up approach to mitigating risks. First, is our asset selection framework for home equity investment agreements. Second, we build investor protections directly into the home equity investment contract. Nada’s secured equity position comes with certain rights and protections and allows them to intervene and protect the interests of all equity holders in the underlying property.

Downside Protection
: Home equity investment agreements are made with an average 10-15% discount to the home’s appraised value, protecting investors from home value declines and prepayments.

Secured Interests
: Home equity investment agreements are secured and recorded with a Deed of Trust /Mortgage, typically behind the primary mortgage and above the homeowner (like a HELOC).

Structured Payouts
: Homeowner payouts triggers established within the contract, most commonly by liquidity-driven transactions, such as a home sale or cash-out refinance.

Protective Covenants
: Homeowner retains ownership—and must maintain and keep the asset unencumbered.

Right of First Refusal (ROFR)
: Contracts have a ROFR clause to protect against below-market transactions.

Quality Credit & Collateral
: Most homeowners use their cash to reduce debts, improve their credit profile, and invest in their homes.
