Laprade said that market is good and sometime it becomes bad but rental income stays consistent. Every month when you get a same amount from tenants. Then you don’t have to worry about that how much it will be going to, so if there comes less variation from a month to month.
Laprade could not invest in his own pricey backyards because cost of getting was too much high as compared to all the returns. He just wanted to buy home in $50,000 - $100,00 range, which is few and a far between in New York City. So as he returned to a company which is called HomeUnion for help.
He also said that he is young and a working profession and he don’t have much time to fly all over country to look at hundred of the houses and seeing that which has best flow of cash.He said that HomeUnion took his all stress and helped him to search for a home in this defined range.
Irvine, a California based HomeUnion which was founded in 2009, during height of foreclosure crisis, something as of just a middleman for an individual real estate investors who are looking to become landlords. This helped small investors to complete with the big institutional firms which were scooping the distressed properties across the whole nation by thousands and by creating a new asset class of a single family rentals.
Don Ganguly, CEO and co-founder of Home Union said that they are looking to change up something like this that this will allow these retail investors to invest in more institutional ways. He also said that a retail investor even didn’t have data and also not have a way to caliber the assets also not have way to do the due diligence in the neighborhoods. If they will be able to do this, they don’t have a better way to acquire that property and to manage this remotely. As a result most of the people invest in their own backyard.
HomeUnion do legwork from the start till the finish. To operate in 11 local markets, this locates for properties and the renovated them as per the company standards, find the renters, then manage the property land and most importantly in last it advise the clients.And of course for a fee. This has a lending arm to sell loans to Freddie mac and Fannie Mae, this will allow these individuals to qualify for up to the 10 investor loans. There Ganguly likes company to any other good investment firm.
Ganguly said that it is just similar that you wake like Fidelity by saying that “I have got one to invest”. This will put in set of the mutual funds and to manage those funds. He also said that they have sort the same type of the playbook by being able to calibrate the residential real estate that anybody couldn’t calibrate.
