At Ark7, their mission is to close the distance between people and properties through the use of their platform. They make investing in quality real estate accessible to people at a low cost and in different locations without the hassle of property management. They optimize the end-to-end workflow — from researching and choosing real estate most likely to appreciate over time, handling legal and finance procedures, and renting and managing properties so you can earn passive monthly income and future appreciation from your investments.
How you make money
Ark7 is a truly passive income investment platform. When you purchase shares on Ark7, you become a shareholder of a separate holding entity that owns a specific property. Similar to stocks, you may be rewarded in two ways:
- Distributions - the income of the company, for example, rental income, after deducted by the operating expenses, will be distributed to the shareholders on a monthly basis.
- Value appreciation - when you sell your shares or Ark7 decides to sell the property, you may earn the value appreciations of the investment property.
How Ark7 makes money
Ark7 charges a one-time sourcing fee which is 3% of the Property Market Cap, paid to Ark7 as the Asset Manager for sourcing and acquiring the property asset. There is also a monthly Property Management Fee of 8-15% of the Rental Income, paid to Ark7 as the Property Manager for maintaining the property and managing tenants.
Is it safe?
Ark7 was founded in 2018 and has raised $2 million in funding since then.
At Ark7, security is their number one priority when it comes to making real estate investments. Real estate is known to be a safe and stable investment, and their property acquisition team specifically looks for properties in locations that can deliver above-average monthly returns. They also partner with trusted property management teams and have a comprehensive screening process for vendors and tenants, to create ongoing efficiencies that lower costs.
