We are the new way people CO-BUY investment property. Buy with friends, family, co-workers or other HBU verified partners.

We provide expert advice to avoid default, co-buyer agreement support, background checks, lenders, agents and even credit resources in case you are not quite ready yet!



About About

We are a proud member of the sharing economy, which has grown rapidly and now has Uber, Lyft and Airbnb brands collectively valued at over $100 billion.

Since 2011 home prices have increased a cumulative 48%, and income only 15%, which means it is even more difficult to buy real estate than ever before.

With lower wages, the increase in home prices and the uncertainty of many financial investment options, buying investment property to create secondary income is a great option.

The challenge HBU is solving is the cost to enter the investment property market , which can be out of reach for one person but two or more make this a much more attractive option.

Our platform connects home buyers and property investors. We provide background checks, co-buyer agreements with expert advice to avoid default and match members based upon their profile requirements. HBU also includes recommended resources for credit repair, lenders, agents and more.

Leadership team 


You can join the HBU community for free by simply completing the registration process and developing an HBU profile. We encourage you to bring your own partner and allow us to provide the process to protect your mutual interest.  Next you will want to get a background verification and have your partner get their background verified as well. Finally,  we recommend all co-buyers complete a co-buyer agreement.  

  • Free membership
  • Access to lenders and real estate agents
  • Background checks
  • Expert advice to avoid default
  • Co-Buyer equity agreements
  • Lower down payments
  • Credit repair referral resources
  • No sensitive data storage
  • Stronger market position

Absolutely! We encourage families, friends and acquaintances to join together to participate in the background vetting process. We also provide access to  lenders through our network. We understand it can be awkward to ask people you know to undergo important background checks without possibly placing the relationship in an uncomfortable position, so we are here to help you with that important step.
Our  goal for our HBU membership is to do all we can on the front-end to set in place every provision we can to help prepare for challenges and if needed exit strategies. The buying partners will also  have access to expert advice to avoid default by way of a co-buyer agreement that will spell out the intentions and responsibilities as well as ownership share for each party. We recommend this document be reviewed by the buyers attorneys. 
Buying investment property and renting it out or flipping the property is a goal for many, but getting started can be difficult for one buyer on their own but two motivated and vetted members can do it. Our real estate agents can guide you through the process. 
If you need to work on your credit or create a good credit history you are not alone. In fact, according to Credit.com, "Only a small sliver of people have absolutely terrible credit scores, but plain-old bad credit? That’s a lot more common. Nearly a third of Americans have a credit score lower than 601 — the distinction between bad and fair credit — according to credit bureau Experian." Never fear we can help. Once you are a member we can recommend a resource to help you over time use strategies to build good credit. 
The length of your partnership is up to you. If you and your partner can agree to whatever time period works best for your partnership goals.

Why do some people have more - it is all about choices!

Citing research from the Federal Reserve, primary residences accounted for about one-quarter of Americans’ overall wealth in 2016, more than any other financial asset. Besides creating wealth, owning a home allows for amassing equity, with Americans having a record-high $14.4 trillion in equity as of the last quarter of 2017.
