Pitch

Update August 7 2023: Due to the extraordinary demand and enthusiasm for this equity fundraise (we received over $10M in investment interest in this community round), we've worked to double the size of the maximum raise amount for this community round, increasing it to $1M from our initial maximum raise of $500k. Additionally, in an effort to ensure fairness and provide an opportunity for all interested parties, we have set a maximum investment amount of $500 per investor. 


Effortlessly Invest in Vacation Rentals & Rental Homes 

Arrived has opened an entirely new category for consumer investing: enabling anyone to invest as little as $100 in single-family homes and vacation rentals. Investors earn rental income + appreciation right away, and Arrived takes care of all the work typically involved with owning property.

Arrived was the first company to offer SEC qualified shares in individual rental homes and vacation rentals to consumer investors, including non-accredited investors. This first-mover advantage has allowed us to not only become the leader in the category, but also accelerate our growth over time. In March of 2023 we had our best month ever, fully funding over 30 properties. In Q1 2023, clients invested over $19M into new properties across the country. We continue to see strong demand, with many of our offerings selling out in minutes, and with one investor recently pointing out that Arrived "is like getting tickets to a Taylor Swift concert". Most recently, in May 2023, Arrived won Startup Of The Year at the Geekwire Awards (link).

Why Are We Raising A Small Community Round?

Since launching our product in 2021, one of the most popular requests we have received is the ability to invest in the Arrived company itself. So while we are not in need of any additional investment capital, we are launching this small community funding round with a maximum raise amount of $500k (updated to $1M) so that investors in our properties are able to invest in the company as well and become part owners in Arrived. We kept the terms of this small community round the same as our $25,000,000 Series A round from a year ago, despite having seen strong growth since then.

We plan to collect interest over the next few months and then allocate investment volumes across the interested parties. During this initial phase, your payment is optional if you submit your interest in investing in this community round. Given the small community round size, we cannot guarantee that everybody will receive their desired investment amount. 

The minimum investment amount in this round is $100 USD, which is consistent with our investment properties. Given the limited nature of this community round and the high interest we are seeing, we are adding a $500 maximum investment per person for now.

This a reminder that we are currently only collecting interest. If you submit a reservation, you are not required to pay any funds to reserve your investment. 

Before continuing we do want to make clear that investing in any startup is highly risky and nobody should invest in this community round unless they have a high risk tolerance and are fully prepared to lose their entire investment. We will also mention that risks associated with investing in Arrived company equity do not translate to risk of investing in Arrived investment properties. We structure all of our rental home and vacation rental properties as series LLCs, which mean that those investments continue to hold their value and operate in the event that the Arrived company ceases to exist. Startup equity investing and real estate investing have very different risk profiles and shouldn't be seen in the same light. 

Our Product

Arrived is the easiest way for anyone to invest in rental homes & vacation rentals. Our product experience is fast, familiar, and easy to use. From signup to your first property investment takes less than 4 minutes. The experience feels a bit like browsing properties on Zillow, but with an Amazon “buy now” button where you can make investments in any of our available offerings.

After making an investment, you can earn passive income and any appreciation as property values grow. Arrived does all of the work to manage the assets and make sure they are delivering at their best. We work to maximize returns through data-driven decision-making, collaboration with local market experts, our powerful tools, and scaled efficiencies.

Our Results 

We've built our operating strategy around acquiring high-quality properties in desirable neighborhoods and effectively operating them with the highest degree of care. We select investments across the country with great return profiles that offer stable cash dividends and superior appreciation potential. Our differentiated asset strategy and streamlined operating plan allow us to minimize costs through economies of scale and efficient processes. These two areas of focus allow us to deliver profits and peace of mind for our investors.

Thanks to this strategy, we have been able to drive strong returns for our investors with over $1.8M paid out through dividends. In total, 203 properties paid out dividends in Q1 with annualized yields ranging from 2.0% to 8.5% on long-term rentals and 3.7% to 15.1% on short-term rentals. You can learn more about our latest Q1 performance here, where we go into our operational metrics, like our 93% occupancy rate for our rental properties.

Our Company Growth

Since launching in 2021, we have experienced explosive growth – growing +833% year over year. Assets under management increased from $6.4m to $58.5m in 2022, with more than 50% of investors repeat-investing into multiple properties.

Driven by our agent rebates, our revenue grew from $454K in 2021 to $6.1M in 2022. This revenue growth has allowed us to keep cash burn relatively low so far. During 2022 we averaged $375k in monthly burn, while for 2023 we are targeting a monthly burn figure of $500k per month.

Our experienced real estate team has developed a scalable asset management program. This has allowed us to grow from 5 to 35 markets across the country.

Our Business Model and Revenue

Arrived makes money in a few ways described below. 

  • Agent Rebates - We collect a real estate agent rebate from the original property seller when we first buy the rental property. This fee is paid for by the previous owner of the property.
  • Sourcing Fee (One Time) - This is the fee Arrived charges for our work involved with sourcing the property and preparing it for investment.
  • Arrived AUM (Assets Under Management) Fee - The Arrived AUM fee is a quarterly fee paid to Arrived and helps cover the preparation of tax forms for investors, the distribution of dividends to all investors, procuring insurance policies and filing claims when applicable, ensuring property taxes and loan payments are paid, overseeing financial accounting for properties, and overseeing the property manager.

Our Equity Investors

Arrived raised a $10M seed round in 2021 and a $25M Series A round from a world class group of investors and CEO / founders who believe in our mission. Existing investors include Jeff Bezos, Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, and Spencer Rascoff, former CEO of Zillow. 

Our Team

Arrived was co-founded in 2019 by Ryan Frazier and Kenny Cason, both experienced entrepreneurs who previously founded DataRank and grew the company through two acquisitions and finally at Sprout Social which IPO'd in 2019, and Alejandro Chouza, who previously ran Uber in the Pacific Northwest USA. Together, they bring decades of experience and expertise in real estate acquisition and management, technology, product, finance, accounting, and marketing. 

Our investments team is comprised of industry veterans who have extensive experience acquiring and managing thousands of rental properties. More specifically our team collectively spent over 15 years at American Homes 4 Rent (AMH), the second largest single family REIT in the country. That team is led by Cameron Wu, former Vice President at AMH, where he oversaw business intelligence, revenue, and asset management, as the company grew from 17,000 homes to 52,000 homes.

The team has now grown to include 56 talented individuals who are distributed across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their mission is to empower the world to build wealth through modern real estate investing, and they are passionate about achieving this goal.

Press

Given Arrived is the first company offering shares of rental property to the general public and we are also the largest player in the space, this has allowed us to capture outsized interest from the press, which further accelerates growth. Over the last 12 months, our site has been visited by over 1.2M people. 

Below you can find just a few of our press mentions.

What’s Next

Our focus is as singular as ever: we want to empower millions of people to build wealth through real estate. Expect several new features big and small, from the launch of the Arrived mobile app, further investment in our rapidly growing vacation rental product line, and new investment in additional product lines. We really appreciate what our clients are saying about what we’ve built so far, and we're excited to hear your thoughts on what's coming up.

As mentioned above, we are planning to collect interest over the next few months and then allocate investment volumes across the interested parties. During this initial phase, if you submit your interest in investing in this community round, your payment method will not be charged. Given the small community round size, we cannot guarantee that everybody will receive their desired investment amount.

Do I need to be an accredited investor?

No. Wefunder allows you to invest without being an accredited investor. All you have to do is sign up and invest.

What type of risk is involved with investing in Arrived company equity?

High risk. All tech startups bring significant risk, and we caution people from investing in Arrived equity (and generally any tech startup equity) if you do not have high-risk tolerance for your investments. Thankfully things have been going very well at Arrived, the business is growing rapidly, and we are bullish about our future; however, there are always significant risks in investing in equity for early-stage startups.

It is important to note that any risk associated with investing in Arrived company equity does not translate to investing in Arrived investment properties. We structure all of our rental home and vacation rental properties as series LLCs, which means that those investments continue to hold their value and operate in the event that the Arrived company ceases to exist.

Reasons not to invest

Arrived is still early and risks abound. We are working on hard challenges and have a long time horizon. You should not invest any funds in this community round unless you can afford to lose your entire investment. Additionally there is no current path to liquidating any equity you purchase in Arrived.
