Real Estate Financial service?

I have a concept for a financial real estate service and I would like some feedback on whether or not it could work.

Say someone has owned their home for several years and own a large amount of equity in their property "lets say $65,000".


It won't work. For the sake of clarity, lets assume the house was purchased for 165k and the owner has, as you say, 65k in equity. The third party investor is supposed to buy the house for 165k? Why would anybody do that, where is their profit?
