What is 'Sweat Equity'?!

Sweat equity is contribution to a project or enterprise in the form of effort and toil. Sweat equity, in the context of real estate, refers to value-enhancing improvements made by homeowners to their properties.

Sweat equity is essential at real estate when cash is not plentiful. When fixing up and selling homes or forming a new company, people typically have more time than money. They must work hard leveraging their time so they increase their revenues.

Increasing the money supply means owners may continue focusing on income-producing activities while delegating other tasks to paid workers. Therefore, sweat equity must be carefully measured in terms of the long-term value of an individual’s efforts, the commitment of participants and the value each adds to the overall goal of the business.
