Description

WHO WE ARE

addy is real estate for everyone. We are a well-capitalized startup with a mission to help make every human a homeowner. We are a SaaS-enabled marketplace that engages every human through compelling and thoughtful design.

When you can invest in real estate for as little as $1, everyone has a chance to get into the market.

Investing in real estate with addy means you can own property and still do all of the things that make you who you are because you decide how much to invest.

There’s no need to turn your life upside down for a massive down payment, you could literally invest $1 if that’s what’s best for you. Continue living downtown, travel when you want, spend more time with family and friends, and still have the chance to get into real estate. 

ABOUT THE TEAM

We’re a passionate and fun group of people who are moving quickly, which is why we’re looking for the brightest minds to join us on this incredible journey.
