How did American Homeowner Preservation start?

Published on April 25th, 2017 by

American Homeowner Preservation began in 2008 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission of keeping families at risk of foreclosure in their homes. American Homeowner Preservation pioneered the short sale leaseback to help families avoid foreclosure through reduced payments and elimination of negative equity.


After transforming to a for-profit, American Homeowner Preservation was able to arrange viable long-term solutions to keep hundreds of families in their homes. AHP started buying mortgages in January 2011 and evolved into a hedge fund in October 2011. In October 2013, to enhance scale by maximizing convenience and transparency afforded by the recently-passed JOBS Act, American Homeowner Preservation transitioned yet again to become an online investment community to deliver impactful social returns and compelling financial returns. Today, AHP crowdfunds investments from non-accredited investors with a minimum investment of only $100.
