Fractional Ownership in India
A fractional ownership platform identifies suitable high-value properties and invites investors to own fractions of the same. CRE has seen an annual appreciation of 11.6 percent for the past few years in India.
When inflation rates are high, there is a greater demand for hard assets. In India, 85% of commercial real estate has been owned and invested by Institutional Foreign funds and HNI's, which leaves little room for retail investors to participate. Foreigner Investors have taken advantage of this growth with Brookfield, Black Stone, and Maple Trees. To disrupt this space we have very few fractional ownership companies in India offering a fractional ownership investment opportunity.
Barriers to entry for Retail Investors in CRE
High ticket size
The high ticket size of an A-grade property ranges from 40-50 crores making it difficult for a retail investor to purchase unless they have the necessary funds.
Lack of expertise
Traditionally, Retail investors lacked the expertise of understanding the building, the dynamics of a micro-market, the evaluation of the supply and demand, and the tenancy rate.
Lack of liquidity
Investors prefer more liquid options with greater ease in exchanging. Traditionally, liquidity has come only when selling a property.
Investing in real estate can be complicated and time-consuming. Tenant management is one aspect that requires a lot of negotiation, legal work, and expertise for an investor to manage well.
Fractional property investment means investing in the building and its future. Property management includes building management team, risk mitigation, structural evaluation.
So Fractional Ownership investments are the solution to all these problems and a way to erode the barriers to entry. Investing in Fractional Real Estate pushes Retail Investors on the same competitive platform as Institutions or fund houses with regards to participating in these opportunities.
