Presenting an Equity or Type E Agreement

Friday, August 25, 2017

In the past, prospects have either owned or rented real estate so an Equity agreement with its proprietary rights seems more familiar to a mature adult. Having some ownership in a property after an outlay of significant capital may be more comfortable to many consumers. ...Read the rest...

Presenting a Type D Agreement -Rental

Friday, August 18, 2017

In recent years, a significant number of rental communities have entered the arena of Life Plan Communities.
