reAlpha is the Robinhood of Airbnb investments, representing the intersection of modern technology and lasting assets. A new wave of investment opportunities in real estate has emerged, and Airbnb short-term rentals are changing hospitality and travel on a global scale. Previously, only accredited investors have had access to the best real estate deals, but reAlpha is democratizing this lucrative new model, empowering anyone to generate wealth as a reAlpha member. reAlpha uses its proprietary, disruptive technologies to level the playing field, unraveling the industry’s high barriers to entry and bringing the power of real estate investing to the “99 percent.”

The company’s unique model allows investors to benefit from both the superior returns of short-term rental income and increases in property value through renovation and appreciating markets. reAlpha likens this double investment return to seeing two desserts on a dinner menu and ordering both.

The company seeks to open up access to real estate investing by letting regular people buy fractional ownership of short-term rentals using reAlpha’s smartphone app. The reAlpha app simplifies the real estate investing process. In the app, investors can check out the company’s most current properties offered for investment. If they choose to invest, they become members of a syndicate invested in a specific short-term rental property. Syndicate members receive quarterly dividend payments from rental revenue generated by the property in which they invested. The reAlpha model merges the most historically stable asset – real estate – with technology and the sharing-economy business model of the future – Airbnb.

The company handles all property management functions and believes short-term rentals are no longer purely transactional and occupancy-driven. reAlpha reimagines the entire guest experience end-to-end to make sure the reAlphaHouse is the ultimate on-demand rental property. The company plans to implement various technologies, including smart locks, voice-activated electronics, home automation systems, and innovative furnishings, to create an unparalleled guest experience. When guests have exceptional stays, investors enjoy maximized profits.

Investment Considerations

  • The company has the ability to rent out properties on Airbnb at scale.
