HOUSING JOINT VENTURE SELECTED TO EXHIBIT AT 2019 STARTUP GRIND GLOBAL CONFERENCE
COLUMBUS, Ohio, USA, (JANUARY 15th, 2019) – Housing Joint Venture (HJV) has been selected by Startup Grind, powered by Google for Startups, for the Startup Exhibition in the Grind category at the 2019 Startup Grind Global Conference held February 12th through February 13th in Redwood City, Calif.
The tech startup is solving America’s affordable housing crisis and reconciling investment aversion among Millenials by removing risks and barriers from real estate investing.
HJV’s platform provides hands-on, financial and real estate education; a supply of investment properties yielding returns between 6% – 12%; and full-service property development and property management.
Making Millennials comfortable with investing is critical. 46% of millennials believe investing is too risky and as a result, on average they hold 70% of their wealth in cash (2015 BlackRock Report) Additionally, a 2018 NerdWallet analysis puts the potential cost of avoiding the stock market at over $3.3 million in lost retirement savings per person.
Housing JV typically purchases properties for less than 50% of after repair value (ARV). The company focuses on markets where home values are projected to increase by at least 10% year over year (YoY). Investor dollars transform the properties into budget-friendly rentals. The renovated properties improve the community and deliver tangible, triple-bottom-line returns to investors.
