Invest in the earliest stage of
home value creation
Collective is the first fractional equity platform to enable investors to earn compelling equity returns on the construction of new single-family homes. Investors easily invest in new homes and profit from their sale.
Buy equity in new home construction projects
Invest in the construction of new homes from the ground up, realizing gains from the earliest point in the value chain when those homes sell.
Collective makes it easy
Collective’s Project Sponsors create, manage, sell new home construction projects for you. To align incentives, they invest alongside you — on the same terms — and typically group multiple homes into each project, further mitigating and diversifying risk.
Help close the housing gap
Millions of people need homes that do not exist. Collective attracts new capital to new home construction so that we can build more homes, together.
The first Project Sponsor on Collective is focused in high-demand areas in Central Florida
Advantages of the area for investment:
Focused on building in Marion, Lake, Brevard, Citrus, and Orange counties, hosting thriving markets. Housing data as of March 2023 saw YoY home appreciation in these counties ranging 12-22% according to Rocket Homes analysis of public MLS data and ranging 5-10% as of March 2023 according to Zillow’s ZHVI index. Data available includes sales and home values of both existing and new construction.
Population increase (est. 1,000 ppl/week moving to Central Florida)
46% of new Orlando residents who moved from outside Florida within the last year are prime working age – between the ages of 25 and 54 – and only 12% are over the age of 65
As of Q1 2023, ~50-60% homes sold in under 30 days; ~30% sold in 30-90 days across counties of focus
Trusted, existing building supply chain with a strong history in Central Florida
What drives us
The U.S. faces a housing shortage of 5.5 million homes. Among the biggest reasons: it's hard for homebuilders to secure the financing they need to build new homes.
Complex, opaque financing practices prevent everyday investors from accessing the market for new home construction, despite historic demand.
No longer. Collective features compelling investment opportunities and makes it easy for accredited or non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. resident investors to finance new home construction projects directly.
Collective gives the power to build more homes to the communities that need them.
A chronic undersupply of homes with no systemic solutions, until now
