- No ceiling due to compounding interest
- Fixed or adjustable interest rate - Partnership with the bank
- Both parties own a share of the property
- Maximum payment known from Day 1
- No interest or fees for late payment 1) Ability to fully assess purchase before entering contract - Fixed payments, can only decrease
- No compounding interest 2) Always entitled to a percentage, even when home goes under water 3) Pay less overall when payments are completed as scheduled 2) Grew at a rate of 15-20% throughout the recession 3) Still growing rapidly
