Cooperative (Co-op) properties are an alternate form of ownership of homes and property, in which the property is owned by an organization and sold as shares to the residents of the community.
Condotel properties are a hybrid of a condominium and hotel, operated as a commercial hotel or motel even though the units are individually owned. Hotels generally have rental and reservation desks, short-term occupancy, food and telephone services, and daily cleaning services.
Discover does not offer home equity loans on either of these types of properties at this time.
