HOUSTON, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RealtyWealth.com today announced the launch of the first commercial real estate Crowdfunding platform dedicated to Single Tenant Net Lease "STNL" investments.
Targeting accredited investors in the US and global investors in South Africa, China, and Canada, RealtyWealth.com provides the opportunity to invest in institutional quality, corporate backed lease properties from credit rated tenants such as McDonald's, Walgreens, Starbucks and Walmart.
RealtyWealth is also the first portal to offer passive realty investments to foreign investors seeking the stability and yields of US Real Estate Assets. Chinese investors have been particularly active, with investments in US commercial properties jumping 10-fold from 2012 and expected to reach $10 billion in 2014 according to Real Analytics.
Taking advantage of this foreign investor wave, RealtyWealth have built key marketing relationships with international consumer sites like Juwai.com- the largest outbound Chinese investment portal for US properties– and have distribution partners arranged or under discussion in South Africa, Latin America and Canada.
"RealtyWealth.com operates as an aggregator of local and foreign investors seeking stable US-based Real Estate Investments," said Sam Vogel, co-founder. "STNL products offer long-term, corporate-backed, passive income with an inflation and currency hedge to our investors."
STNL Investments offer passive investments consisting of long-term leases, guaranteed by the Corporate Tenant. Tenants are responsible for ALL incidentals including taxes, insurance and maintenance - normally the landlords' responsibility. Many leases have rental bumps to keep pace with inflation and investors can depreciate the property against tax. In the unlikely event that the tenant defaults, the investor still owns the underlying property.
Whereas UHNW, Family Offices, Hedge Funds and REITS have invested in STNL investments for decades, less than 10% of the 8.7 million Accredited investors in the USA are aware of these investments.
"NNN Investments are essentially corporate bond-type investments in real estate wrappers," said Bryan Smith, co-founder and CEO. "Compare investing in Starbucks stock at 1.6% dividend versus acquiring a corporate backed Starbucks lease achieving returns of 6% to 7% unlevered?"
RealtyWealth's proprietary, state-of-the-art platform and dashboard allows investors to review properties, make investments, track portfolios and receive statements, earnings and tax computations all online.
RealtyWealth are working closely with developers, brokers and intermediaries in the CRE market to introduce STNL investments in the US and abroad.
From only $5,000 a month, investors can invest in these appealing properties and enjoy the opportunity to build value over the long term.
