Frequently Asked Questions


What is co-buying?

Co-buying is purchasing a home with friends, family, investment partners, or a significant other. (Basically anyone you’re not married to.)

What does Pairadime do?

We create easy-to-use tools and resources that make co-buying simpler. We also use our network of co-buying-savvy real estate agents, lenders, and attorneys to help aspiring co-buyers find experienced, knowledgeable help.

Is Pairadime a real estate brokerage?

We have a full-service real estate brokerage in western Washington state. If you live elsewhere and are looking for a real estate agent who knows co-buying, we’ll match you with one of our Pairadime partners in your area.

Can I use your Co-Ownership Agreement Builder to make a legal contract?

Technically speaking, you could use a napkin to make a legal contract, but we don’t recommend it. Each state has its own laws around homeownership. Our Co-Ownership Agreement Builder walks you and your co-buyers through important questions, then gives you a document an attorney can use to create a contract in accordance with your state’s laws.

I live in (your city here). Can you connect me with a real estate professional?

Yes! If you live in the US or Canada we can connect you with a real estate agent, lender, or attorney in your area who is experienced in co-buying.

How do you choose the real estate professionals you work with?

Many have come to us through a recommendation. Others we’ve found through research, and some have reached out to us through our site. In any case, we personally interview each potential partner to confirm their co-buying experience before inviting them to join our partner network.

Why do you love co-buying so much?

Co-buying increases financial and housing security, makes sustainable living easier, and supports stronger communities. Check out our blog post on the benefits of buying a home together to learn more.
