Zeehaus is an online platform that makes buying a home more affordable through a process called equity sharing, which connects homebuyers with investors who buy shares of the property and collect rent from homebuyers. We believe that real estate investing and home ownership should be for everyone. Zeehaus reduces the cost of buying and investing in homes, so that more people can benefit and enter the marketplace.
Zeehaus is an easy-to-use web platform designed to pair homebuyers who do not want a mortgage, with investors hoping to profit from future home appreciation. This type of arrangement is called equity sharing. Zeehaus also provides the organizational structure and legal documentation for the relationships between homebuyers and investors, and manages these relationships throughout the equity share.
Our goal at Zeehaus is to be the one-stop shop and data-driven platform for all things related to residential real estate, including property listings, rehab/flip properties, agent advertising and mortgage referral. Zeehaus will launch its Equity Sharing platform and start the purchase program in September 2020 for properties in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. Next, we plan to expand to the Dallas, Phoenix, and Seattle areas in mid-2021, and New York, Oregon, Nevada, and Colorado in late 2021. To launch Zeehaus Coins, we will work with our partner financial institution holding money exchange licenses and start accepting Zeehaus Coins as payment tools for buying property shares on the Zeehaus portal. One future opportunity that we are considering is blockchain ownership, as we hope to record the entire property title on the blockchain, in order to further streamline and lower the costs of property transactions when governments start to recognize blockchain as a legal way to hold real assets.
