Why ARCH Comparison Table

Equitable Shared-Equity

Shared-equity programs are gaining popularity globally. Sadly, some are exploitive and capitalize on the hurdles facing buyers by imposing exorbitant fees and taking significant shares of hard-earned home equity. We have seen fees as high as 75% of a home's appreciation – this is no good.

ARCH Foundations is designed to deliver shared-equity financing in an equitable and sustainable manner. We are not out to make a quick buck and are in it for the long haul.

BIG thank you to the team at Arch for helping our family on our homebuying journey. Without their program and the support of their team, there's a good chance that we'd still be renting right now.
