Zeehaus is tackling one of the biggest issues facing our communities: housing affordability. I invested in the company because I believe in their mission to make homeownership affordable and as well as in creating a transparent, fair, and digital way to invest and co-own an owner-occupied home that is not possible today.
Existing crowdfunding offerings and real estate investment opportunities offer similar business models to seek money to buy properties (which lacks transparency), turn them into rental homes, and distribute dividends, but that always requires significant overhead in management and servicing of rental or Airbnb properties.
I believe Zeehaus co-ownership model and technology will lead to a new movement to disrupt how real estate ownership and investment should be done, as right now it is no longer possible for many younger buyers and people serving our communities to purchase a home. An innovative solution in creating a new ecosystem for buying 5% of a home is the solution since buyers need to give appreciation to investors in exchange for lowering housing payment. For real estate investors, this model enables investment in residential homes transparently without having to worry about where your money is.
