Founded by dealmaker and entrepreneur, John Delia, Housing Joint Venture is a real estate impact investing and education platform. Through the platform, socially conscientious investors may find equally lucrative and conscionable opportunities in real estate. Likewise, aspiring investors may educate themselves on the real estate industry through
Philosophically, Housing Joint Venture seeks a dual return—one that is both social and financial.
The platform commits its money to communities that need meaningful change. From its inception, founders and partners shared the perspective that doing good and being profitable do not have to be mutually exclusive. In fact, “the highest returns occur when values and finances meet,” in the words of the platform’s founder, John Delia, who envisions a future where communities are inclusive and residents actively seek diversity, understanding, and participation. As such, it made sense to use budget-friendly housing as a vehicle to positively impact families, neighborhoods, and everyday people who want to grow their disposable income in a way that aligns with their values.
Operationally, Housing Joint Venture purchases and renovates below market value properties in the Midwest—namely Columbus,
Toldeo, Dayton, and Detroit.
Subsequently, units from the properties—which include single-family homes, duplexes, and apartment buildings—are rented out at a reasonable and affordable rate while yielding profitable returns for investors.
Furthermore, a team of researchers and writers peruses and curate real estate investment related content from books, conferences, the media, and online to publish monthly articles that keep partners and investors abreast of trending topics and educated on innovations and resources. For a minimum amount of $7,500, one with the credentials of an accredited investor may find deals on and invest in whatever properties are listed on the Housing Joint Venture platform. There are case studies outlined on the website to allow prospective investors to view examples of deals that have been struck in the past and how the investors fared. After investing, if one wishes to know how they’re doing, he or she may access a personalized account statement that details performance.
