Imagine for a moment that you are presented with an opportunity to make an investment – a real estate investment in an amount that suits your budget, your risk tolerance level and your desire to make a meaningful contribution to your community. As with any investment, there is no guarantee of immediate profit. There is, however, the comfort that comes from knowing that real estate has historically proven to be the most lucrative asset available to everyday investors. addy is revolutionizing the real estate industry by opening doors to all those investors who thought they were blocked from realizing their dreams due to lack of capital and lack of access to quality deals.
The best thing about starting to invest through addy is that you will never be alone. You will be partnered in your venture with experienced investment professionals who have done the hard work of thoroughly vetting property conditions and history, current income and expenses and, most importantly, the potential for income and appreciation. All you need is a small amount of investment capital (and we do mean “small”) and an understanding that today’s global economy demands a new paradigm – a new model that reflects our rapidly-changing world. The hard, cold truth is that until recently, real estate investing seemed out of reach for most of us. The conventional wisdom was that you needed tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to even get started. How is someone supposed to raise that kind of capital when you are already paying your own exorbitant rent while still paying off things like student debt? And who has the time to find good properties when you are already working full-time?
At addy, we are all about removing the traditional barriers facing investors. We are democratizing real estate investing so that anyone can start building a real estate portfolio today. Think of it as crowdfunding for investment properties where we all can share in the returns. Here are the important “Basics” as to how we make it happen:
- Fully-vetted properties are listed on our platform. addy has already identified the property and performed rigorous due diligence tasks.
- addy invests in each of the properties and investment is also made available to our members who are free to stake as little or as much as they want to (up to $1500). Start with as little as $1 and you can own a share in a property.
- addy takes care of all the details.
How do we pick properties?
addy invests in properties in up and coming neighbourhoods with solid growth potential – properties we can truly be proud of. In fact, every tenant in the buildings we acquire can invest in the building — even if it’s only $1. We feel that investor-tenants will take just that much better care of the place they live in if they have a stake in the success of the property.
addy’s team takes care of everything for you, working with top advisors to draft purchase documents and file all paperwork to ensure the correct compliance with securities regulations.
