We're empowering a new generation of real estate investors

Real estate funds provide quality investment opportunities to grow and preserve your wealth in addition to your traditional stocks and bonds. Now you can get connected to share the upside too.

This chart shows the impact of compounding - actual returns will be different. We've assumed the market and savings interest rates will go up by an average of 5.5% and 1% respectively. We used real estate fund data from both FTSE NAREIT Real Estate Equity REITs and NCREIF total returns. All data is as of December 2018. Investing in real estate is considered risky and historical performance of real estate return data should not be considered as a guarantee for future performance.

Frequently asked questions

Am I investing through Homebound or another investment company?

Investors cannot invest directly or access individual offerings through our Homebound platform.

Each private investment company will perform their own Know Your Client (KYC) and suitability tests before distributing their investment offerings.

How do I know if I can qualify to invest in private real estate?

Generally, if you’re an accredited investor in Canada you can invest in all private real estate deals. 

You may also invest in private real estate deals if you fit 'eligible investor' requirements. However, there are several limitations in what and how much you can invest per year and project.

You can find out more info by looking at OSC regulations of what classifies you as an accredited vs. eligible investor here.

What is the average minimum investment for these types of private funds?

What exactly would I be investing in?

In private equity, an individual or company would lend their money to purchase shares of private companies that are not accessible to the public.

So when we think of investing in private equity real estate, this involves individuals lending their money to own shares of real estate funds that are managed by private investment companies. Each fund has a different strategy based on the investment companies’ expertise.

How long are the hold periods for these types of private investments?

The hold periods for private real estate firm investments vary based on the type of strategy and asset class.

Generally, most investment dealers try to seek deals that can exit anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. Exit strategies are typically defined before any private dealer raises capital for an issuer and can occur by way of project completion, refinance, share buyback or sale.

What would happen if the private fund defaults?

Every private real estate companies that we partner with have their own strict corporate governance policies, which dictate what happens during good times and bad times.

Traditionally, if a default ever occurs, most private real estate companies are obligated to hold general meetings for all their investors to clearly communicate the plan of action and strategy moving forward.
