About Hometap
Access the equity in your home. No interest, no monthly payment Hometap provides near-immediate access to funds so homeowners can pay for needs or pursue goals and opportunities. Tap into the equity of your home to fund life without any interest or monthly payment.




Their Goal

Customer acquisition

Hometap provides homeowners with an opportunity to tap into their home's equity without monthly payments or having to take out another loan. In addition to building this new product category, Hometap sought to acquire new leads at costs that were less than, or equal to, their existing ad channels.
Not only are we an early stage company, but we’re trying to build a new product category and there’s not a lot of education around this new alternative financing option. For us, we often have to provide people with some more information and education before they feel comfortable converting on our site and entering our funnel. That’s why I think it’s a good match with Quora.
