5 Stages of the Value-Add Cycle

Capital Raise

The fund opens to begin collecting capital to purchase properties.

Acquisition

Properties are acquired that meet the strict criteria of our real estate experts and that offer strong potential for increased value at the time of resale.

Renovation.

As part of our value-add investing strategy, existing cash-flowing properties are acquired and then renovated to allow for increased rents and property value appreciation.

Appreciation.

Once the renovations are complete, we allow time for the properties to increase in value.

Disposition.

Properties are sold and any profits are distributed to investors.

From Exclusive to All-Inclusive

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) qualified the DiversyFund Growth REIT under Regulation A in November 2018. What this means is that we go through rigorous vetting, which includes strict reporting requirements and annual audits similar to the standards for public companies listed on the stock market.

SEC Filings

Fund Administration

DiversyFund owns and operates the fund and its assets: this provides direct ownership for investors. The fund is not available on public markets and therefore not correlated with stock fluctuations, adding a layer of protection to the portfolio.

Fees & Expenses

DiversyFund is eliminating middleman fees because we do everything in-house. At the REIT level, we do not charge any platform level or management fees. We are able to limit our fees to just a project level acquisition/development fee because we are the real estate sponsor on all of the deals that the REIT invests in (the sponsor is the entity responsible for finding, acquiring, managing and selling assets in a real estate deal).
