About us

What we do

We are an online marketplace which matches professional landlords looking for financing with investors that are looking to invest in asset-backed products with a monthly income.
We founded LandlordInvest in 2014 to solve a major issue facing landlords: financing. We combined our passion for real estate investing with cutting-edge technology to evaluate landlords based on their actual performance, not personal credit.
That's enabled us to say "yes" more often and faster than traditional lenders. And that lets landlords spend their time where it should be—on growing their investments, not seeking financing.

We're making it easier for professional landlords to raise financing and for investors to achieve higher returns.

Our story

The founders spent many years working with investors looking for decent and stable returns without the volatility of the stock market. Also, as landlords, we have been through the process of borrowing from traditional lenders and have first-hand experience of the many inefficiencies that exist in the market.
This led us to the idea to develop a simple and transparent platform that could cater to investors looking for stable uncorrelated returns and borrowers that have a good credit history and an excellent track record but are still unable to access financing through traditional lending markets.
LandlordInvest is an opportunity for us to address these challenges and develop a solution to these market inefficiencies.

A simple and transparent way to invest in secured peer-to-peer lending.
