PRIMARQ Home Equity Platform:What if Investors Could Help You Buy Your House?

“A nation of homeowners is unconquerable.” -Franklin D. Roosevelt NEW YORK (MainStreet)—Homeownership is a daunting, at times seemingly unattainable dream for many Americans—what with total student debt at $1 trillion, a national unemployment/underemployment rate at 14.3%and median household income dropping 7.8% since 2007.
