How do you ensure the quality of listings and profiles on your site? 

While HomeShare Online doesn’t vet every individual home and housemate, we do offer a variety of tools to help you feel secure in your search, like background checks, identity verification and more. 


What is HomeShare Online’s relationship with Finance of America Reverse? 

HomeShare Online is a subsidiary of Finance of America Reverse (FAR). Finance of America Reverse (FAR) provides financial options for retirees who want to pay off their mortgage early, cash in on their home's equity or move into a new house without dealing with a new mortgage payment. FAR works with independent mortgage brokers to originate reverse mortgages, and the company’s wholesale loan products include HECMs, HECMs for Purchase, HomeSafe and refinancing. 


You do not need to be a FAR borrower to use HomeShare Online. Similarly, this partnership does not mean that HomeShare Online will try to sell you reverse mortgages. The only time you may come across mentions of reverse mortgages or any other Finance of America offerings is as part of resources curated by the HomeShare Online team. You can opt out of receiving curated offers at any time by clicking here and de-selecting the box next to Information Sharing: Finance of America.
