A Better Experience For Investors

Investing in rental properties today is very complex and time-consuming. Below is the 16-step process needed for purchasing a rental home. It is complicated, has a steep learning curve, requires tens of thousands of dollars, and takes several months to complete. So, we set out to radically simplify this process and make it accessible to anyone. 

We built a platform where anybody can buy shares in rental homes with a simple four-step process. With this innovative technology-driven process, you can buy shares in seconds and start earning income quickly.

Our Process

In addition to making the investing experience both faster and easier, we have spent a great deal of time developing an operational model that allows us to maximize returns for our investors. While there are many different components that go into maximizing investor returns, the two main areas that we focus on doing really well are the acquisition and management of our rental properties. Below you can learn more about the Arrived process.  

Robust Property Acquisition

Arrived uses data science to ensure that we find and acquire the right home at the right price. This process starts with analyzing hundreds of different markets to identify which offer strong cash flow and strong property appreciation potential. We then pick the best neighborhoods and desired home attributes in those markets. Once we find properties that fit the bill, we create a property and financial analysis that is presented to our investment committee for review. This process ensures that we are only selecting and acquiring the properties that will maximize the returns for our investors. 

Efficient Property Management

Once we have acquired the right property at the right price, our operations team steps in to ensure that the property is managed efficiently and that we are able to reap the benefits of both scale and technology adoption. To start, our operations team works with trusted contractors to renovate the property and invest in the areas that will not only give us the best bang for our buck but will also reduce maintenance expenses in the future. We then work with a local expert property manager to start vetting potential tenants with our data-driven criteria that aim to minimize any potential issues that could affect the property returns. Last, our operating team uses a technology platform to monitor potential property issues and provide the tenants with attentive customer service.

Below are just a few of the benefits of investing on the Arrived platform.

  • Benefits from Scale – Thanks to our scale of operations, we can further decrease many different types of costs and improve returns. 
  • No personal liability – We place all new properties in an LLC, which means there is zero personal liability for investors from any lawsuits or personal guarantees for financing debt. 
  • Access to the most lucrative markets –  We allow investors to access markets with the highest returns, even if those markets are very far away from where you live. 
  • Access to professional-grade technology – We utilize several advanced (and expensive) technology platforms to help us make better property acquisition and management decisions.

Frequent Questions

Question 1: Who legally has ownership of the house?

Answer: When you purchase shares in an Arrived home offering, you are directly buying ownership in the individual Series of a Series LLC that owns that home asset. So if, for example, you purchase 1% of the shares in a single home offering, you would then be entitled to 1% of the economic interests of the asset over time, which may include income from rent or property value appreciation.

Question 2: Who can invest in Arrived Homes properties?

Answer: Currently, the Arrived platform is open to U.S. Residents above the age of 18. Individuals may also invest through certain entities or self-directed retirement accounts. Individuals do not need to be accredited investors to participate in the Arrived platform.

Question 3: Will I have any responsibilities for managing properties I invest in? If not, who is responsible? 

Answer: No, Arrived takes care of all the home ownership responsibilities, including the selection, purchase, and renovation of the home, as well as finding tenants and dealing with maintenance requests. Arrived works with experienced property managers that take care of the day-to-day management responsibility, including finding the renters, dealing with repairs, and managing the expenses. Our property managers have many years of experience, which allows them to maximize returns by increasing revenue (by minimizing vacancy and pricing properly) and minimizing operating costs. 

Question 4: What returns can I expect, and how often are rental payments distributed to investors?

Answer: Returns are earned from rental income dividends and appreciation driven by changes in property values. In Q2 of 2022, Arrived investors collectively earned nearly $182,000 in dividends, with annualized yields ranging from 3.0% to 7.6%. Investors also earned $719,000 in property appreciation. Our current policy is to distribute rental payments on a quarterly basis. Learn More Here

Question 5: What is the minimum Initial Investment?

Answer: Our mission at Arrived is to make investing in rental homes accessible to everyone, and as such, our minimum amount required to make an investment is $100 USD.

Question 6: What happens if I want to liquidate my investment before the holding period ends?

Answer: We’ve designed Arrived offerings for investors who want to invest in real estate for several years so as to maximize return potential. Our anticipated hold period for each property will be 5-7 years. We understand that plans change, and some investors may want to liquidate their investments after a shorter period of time. We are working on a program that, subject to the compliance and transfer restrictions described in our Offering Circular (here), would allow investors to request to redeem their shares and liquidate their investment. Learn More Here. Disclaimer: For risk factors and disclaimer information, you can review our communications disclaimer. There may be penalties associated with redeeming shares depending on when the request is made. We cannot guarantee that any redemptions will be possible.
