What is a Cityfund ?

a. Cityfunds are an index-like fund that provides targeted exposure to a single city’s residential real estate market. Cityfunds are available to all investors, unlike most real estate funds which are only available to private investors. Now anyone who wants to invest in Austin, Miami, or New York real estate for example will have the opportunity to do so with Cityfunds.

b. We designed Cityfunds from the successful transformation we have seen from actively managed mutual funds to passively managed index-based exchange traded funds (ETFs). Many ETFs enable investors to make very targeted investment decisions within a specific sector, geography, or risk profile. We wanted to provide investors this type of targeted exposure to a specific city through a diversified portfolio of residential real estate assets.  

What asset types does a Cityfund invest in?

Cityfunds only invest in single family residential real estate using two strategies: (1) acquisitions of single-family rental homes; and (2) fractional investments in owner-occupied homes via Nada’s Homeshares product. Nada leverages its boots-on-the-ground network of licensed real estate agents and in-house marketing channels to source acquisitions. If you are interested in partnering with Nada to source acquisitions, email us at hello@nada.co.

Can I trade or sell my shares (interests) in a Cityfund like I do stocks?

We have partnered with North Capital to bring Cityfunds to a secondary trading platform. Soon, you will be able to trade your shares on the Nada Platform

Who can invest in a Cityfund?

Everyone can invest in a Cityfund for as little as $250. Most real estate investments are not accessible to everyone due to the requirement for investors to be accredited, charging high fees, and requiring high minimum investment amounts.

Can I cancel my investment if I change my mind?

Regulation A and D offerings are final sale. You may not be able to cancel a commitment for one of these investment opportunities under any circumstances. Please review the relevant offering materials and subscription documentation for more information. Email investing@nada.co for support.

What is the minimum initial investment?

Who manages Cityfunds?

Cityfunds Manager, LLC. which is a joint venture between Nada Asset Management, LLC and Compound Asset Management, LLC.

What cities are Cityfunds investing in?

We have 4 Cityfunds live right now – Austin TX, Dallas TX, Miami FL, Tampa FL. Cityfunds will scale across the country and eventually abroad, providing even more opportunities for investors around the world to take part in owning a piece of the cities they love.

What kind of returns does a Cityfund provide?

Cityfunds are designed to provide returns that are related to the home-price appreciation of a specific market. Based on recent historical and assumed continuing home-price appreciation, we expect both our single-family rental acquisitions as well as our Homeshare investments to generate annual internal rates of return “IRR” of between 12% and 16% over a 7-year period.

Can I track Cityfund acquisitions and performance as an Investor?

Yes! In the spirit of full transparency, Nada will be rolling out a Portfolio Manager application which is fully integrated with each Cityfund and designed to provide investors with an engaging and seamless experience. Investors receive alerts for new acquisitions, Cityfund valuation updates, Cityfund index updates, and all the current news on all things Cityfunds. Each investor will gain access to the Portfolio Manager app for free.

Can I invest from my country?

Our platform allows only US based investors for now. We will keep you updated if we expand to international investors

What are Homeshares (equity investments)?

The typical American family has 68% of their total wealth trapped in their home equity, twice as much as they have in their retirement and savings accounts combined. Historically, the only option for homeowners to access their equity was to either sell their home (pay ridiculous fees) and move out or take out a new loan which adds more debt and requires monthly payments.

Nada’s Homeshares product unlocks a new option for homeowners to trade some of their home equity for cash, without having to move out or take on more debt – requiring monthly payments. Homeshares is not a debt, it is a co-investment in your home, Nada becomes your partner and shares in the upside or the downside of your home value over time. Nada is repaid when you sell, refinance your mortgage, or choose to repay at some time prior to the end of the 10-year term.

To learn more about Homeshares pricing and repayment scenarios, visit our Homeshares calculator tool

How much money can I access with Homeshares?

Nada is currently making investments up to $40,000 in owner-occupied single family homes. Our investment size is the lesser of either (i) 30% of your home equity, (ii) 10% of your home value, or (iii) $40,000.

Do I really not have to make any monthly payments?

That’s correct, there are no monthly payments, no accrued interest, and no added debt withHomeshares. When you agree to a Nada Homeshare investment you receive our cash payment upfront, in exchange Nada becomes a co-investor in your home.
