Company Overview

Housing JV is tackling one of the largest crises facing the United States today by leveraging a rare convergence of economic and political opportunity. Americans face a crisis in housing affordability. Increasing rental costs place affordable housing out of reach for millions. Nearly 1 in 2 renters households spend over 30% of their income on rent, while 1 in 4 spend more than 50% of their income on rent.

Meanwhile, a new national community investment program identifies Opportunity Zones in low income neighborhoods across America. The tax-incentive based program stands to unlock $2 trillion in capital specifically for investment in areas hit hardest by the adorable housing crisis.

Housing Joint Venture is a marketplace for bringing together impact investors and low-cost housing developers. Accredited investors - non-accredited pending - can pool money online to buy shares of pre-vetted investment properties like residential homes and apartment buildings.

Traditional tools including housing vouchers, rent control and developer requirements have not been able to resolve the national housing affordability woes. Developers need low cost of capital to increase housing supply. People seek investment opportunities that beat the paltry average 0.06% rate of return at the bank.

"I actually invested in Housing Joint Venture because of John. Kind of watching him grow both mentally and business-wise so I invested early just to see what happens and then down the road, kind of watch it to see if I can invest more and make some money with John. "

"Housing JV is cool because it allows you to invest in Columbus without having to live in Columbus. I care about Columbus. I'd like to invest in Columbus, but I'm not gonna be here forever, and it gives a good platform for that. "
