F.A.Q


You can join the HBU community for free by simply completing the registration process and developing an HBU profile. Next, you will want to get verified and select verified members. As a member, you will be placed into our matching database where you will receive push notifications of members which meet your search requirements. Finally, you are invited to attend any scheduled events for meet & greets, where potential partners meet one another over some food and drinks. We also have plenty of resources to support your co-buyer agreements, including protection against partner default , credit repair support, lenders, insurance and real estate agents. 
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 find you a resource that can help you over time with strategies to build the good credit. 
Our members will have the assurance that their HBU buying partner will have a fully vetted criminal, financial and personality background check. The buying partners will also enter into a legal agreement that provides protection from the mortgage agreement for health and death related default coverage and additional language stating that after 60 days of non-payment from either member - the non-paying member will forfeit their equity allowing the other member to either sell the property for full equity or arrange for a new mortgage structure with another member. 
The length of your partnership is up to you. If you and your partner want to agree to a one year or three-years or even a longer period of time, you certainly can do that. And, if you want to sell after a year to gain what equity you have acquired and move on, you can do that as well, it is up to you. 
HBU provides an online platform to help property investors and home buyers overcome the challenges of down payment, inventory and cost through peer-to-peer partnership. We provide background checks, co-buyer agreements and a resource network to help with credit repair and prequalification as well as real estate agents in each city, or you can use your own agent if you have one. Our network leverages technology and a sophisticated matching algorithm to help members find matching partners with like-minded purchase goals, chat in-app and decide if you want to meet and proceed to partnership. You can live in the property, buy as an investor or flip property together! Find out more and register for free at www.homebuyersunite.com. Similar programs are available in the UK and Australia butt not as cool as ours in the USA of course!

Absolutely! We encourage families, friends and acquaintances to join together to participate in the background vetting process. We also provide access to multiple 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.
HBU was created to give property buyers more options for overcoming the challenges of cost, inventory and down payment.

HBU was inspired by the countless hard-working Americans dreaming of buying investment property or even a primary residence, and who want to extend their resources to make their lives richer and more affordable through co-buying property to build equity rather than paying rent.
  1. We provide the infrastructure to help home buyers gain empowering knowledge about the investment and home buyers experience you would not get from lenders and real estate agents alone
  2. We also provide access to a technology platform to help match you with the type of partners you have set as your requirements.
  3. Lastly, we provide you with potential partner recommendations and you can see who has undergone criminal background checks with local state and the FBI as well as a financial credit check and personality profile.
There are other businesses offering peer-to-peer property purchasing but they have a limited geographic area and they do not offer the national footprint, technology or background vetting HBU offers its members. We wish those businesses well and do not consider them competitors but fellow problem solvers and we applaud their efforts as helping people is the goal.
We encourage support and welcome your ideas or communication to your sphere of influence. Please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to provide you with logos, key messaging and materials for your use.
HBU Founder Leena Bella Mayo is passionate about helping people and has several industry advisers, which includes a national resource partner network who have joined forces to support members with getting the right property at a price and location just right for them.

Buying investment property and renting it out or flipping 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. We know this is an interest area for many and we will help members meet fully vetted potential partners ready to buy investment and flip properties if this is their goal.
Once you consider that there are millions of roommates living together now, with a legal obligation to a lease  and who are receiving no long term equity you may want to consider the HBU option. It is possible to have a shared space or separate living quarters, depending upon the home. Also, we recommend developing a timeline for living together and co-dwelling agreements as needed.  Finally, the 60-day non-payment forfeiture clause is critical to all agreements and should be included. If one of the members does not pay there portion within 60 days the contract stipulates they agree to forfeit their equity and down payment to the paying member.
