Irvine, Calif. — July 22, 2015 — HomeUnion, an online, real-estate investment management firm enabling value investing in single-family rental (SFR) properties, announced today that it will be issuing quarterly investment reports for its active markets beginning this quarter.
The new reports cover macro-economic trends such as employment, housing prices and demographics that impact the SFR market and forecast rental housing supply and demand fundamentals by examining key investment statistics drawn from public and private data sources. In addition, the reports analyze factors for each local economy, such as the relationship between crude oil prices and Houston’s overall economic picture, or the job creation potential of port construction and dredging projects in Jacksonville.
The reports for metro areas covered by HomeUnion will be released on the following dates:
HomeUnion’s investment site allows individuals to invest remotely in single-family real estate, an asset class that was previously not available to the individual investor. With HomeUnion’s guidance, investors choose a property from HomeUnion’s database of vetted investments that best fits their investment needs (income generation, growth or balanced). HomeUnion manages the acquisition for the owner and then handles the ongoing management of the property. The site has been operational since last May. Steve Hovland, Manager, Research Services at HomeUnion, added, “Investors equipped with timely and accurate information are better positioned to maintain balanced portfolios. We help investors recognize macro-economic trends. Then help them leverage sales and rent comps, home prices and other housing data that enable investors make wise investment decisions.”“SFR investing depends on healthy local markets that can support robust rents and potential home appreciation,” said Don Ganguly, founder and CEO of HomeUnion. “One of our missions is to help investors see SFR not only as an alternative asset class but as a viable alternative to traditional cash-producing, fixed income investments such as bonds and CDs. Providing the research and transparency, similar to what is available in broader markets, is part of this evolution.”
HomeUnion is an online real estate investment management firm, bringing value investing to the individual investor in single-family rental (SFR) properties. Based in Irvine, Calif., it provides all the services needed for individuals to invest remotely in SFR properties. HomeUnion’s role spans the lifecycle of the investment transaction: from identifying sound investments; handling all aspects of acquisition; maximizing income; protecting asset value; and selling it when the time comes.
