Earn better returns by investing in commercial real estate.

The “20% rule” states that an investor should have a minimum of 20% of their portfolio invested in alternatives like commercial real estate. This rule was made famous by the Yale endowment, which has outperformed traditional endowments made up of only stocks and bonds for the last 25+ years. In fact, an investor who invested using the 20% rule in 1995 would have earned about twice as much as an investor who used a more traditional allocation.

Consistent cash flow

Unlike most stocks, commercial real estate generates consistent cash flow (income) from rent. For investors in need of regular income from their portfolio, commercial real estate can provide an attractive alternative to bonds, which also generate regular cash flow, but generally at much lower rates.

REIT's available to everyone Online.

Although widely considered a very attractive Investment opportunity, most commercial Real Estate developments have traditionally only been available to Banks, Financial Institutions and the Rich because of the large minimum investment required.

HouseCapitol only requires $1,000 minimum per investor.

REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) were created in the Capitol by the United States Congress in 1960 as a way to allow the average American to invest in commercial real estate, but their performance has been bogged down by high fees and a lack of transparency.

HouseCapitol changes all that and allows for small investors . We combined the benefits of investing through REITs with the efficiency and transparency of the Internet.
