Sweat Equity | Work Credit by Owner



Definition of "Sweat Equity"

  What Is Sweat Equity?

Sweat equity is the term used to describe the time a homebuyer volunteers.

You need to be very careful with sweat equity because each person that receives it becomes a partial owner. Thus not only do you need to choose a good resource but you must also choose good partners. You need a good contract.

If you want to own your own home (or some rental property for extra income), and have a great work ethic but not a whole lot of cash, a fixer-upper can be your best bet. It’s important to make sure you get the right fixer-upper, though, and not something that needs a little more fixing or investment than you’ll be able to handle.
