Roofstock, a real estate investment platform, has launched the ability for investors to participate in fractional shares of managed rental properties thus enabling a higher degree of diversification for property investors.
Roofstock One is a turnkey vehicle where accredited investors can purchase shares in rental homes across multiple markets rather than purchasing entire properties. Roofstock equates its “SFR” or Single-Family Rentals akin to purchasing a share of stock. Roofstock One’s structure is said to be an “industry-first” for SFR REITs.
Roofstock currently provides resources for investors to buy, manage, and sell investment homes online, including data analytics, property management oversight, and other tools. Investors gain access to cash-flowing rental properties while building long-term wealth through real estate. To date, Roofstock has facilitated more than $4 billion in investment transactions to date in a market that is estimated at a whopping $4 trillion. These shares may be purchased for as little as $1000 in an introductory offer that lasts until the end of the year.
Roofstock states that it leverages its expertise to identify and acquire properties in markets that its data science and research teams have identified as potentially attractive investment opportunities. Roofstock One then issues shares that represent ownership interests in these properties.
“The attractiveness of SFR has long been its ability to generate strong, consistent returns over the long-term in a way that is almost entirely uncorrelated to the stock market. We believe Roofstock One makes SFR real estate investing the simplest it has ever been.”
Roofstock touts its low friction service to participating in the rental sector. Roofstock allows investors to purchase fractional shares or to purchase a property in its entirety.
The company states that Roofstock One’s market footprint currently includes homes in markets like Georgia, Indiana, and Alabama, which may continue to benefit as work-from-home trends.
Roofstock adds that it is currently exploring blockchain technology that could streamline the investment, and management process even further. This includes the tokenizing of Roofstock One shares as well as other products.
