Finally, a chance for everyone to get into real estate. That’s homeownership without the life-altering sacrifices of homeownership.

The hottest real estate deals are usually out of reach for everyday people. We’re changing the game so that literally everyone has a chance to get into the market by investing with addy.

Making real estate investing available to everyone is what excites and unites our team of real estate experts, entrepreneurs, and technologists. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to become a homeowner through access to real estate investing at any amount, regardless of income, age, or other conflicts.

Everyone is Welcome

“As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, building a culture of inclusion, diversity, and financial equality, inside and outside of the company is very close to my heart. This will continue to live at the forefront of our business.” – Michael Stephenson, addy CEO.
