How Yoonify Helped John’s Predicament​

John has joined his father’s development business, which has already been successful for several years. John and his father feel the time is right to expand and it’s John’s job to find out how. At first, wherever John turns he realizes the barrier to growth is access to capital. The business’s capital is tied up in existing properties or paying off debt to the bank. But then John finds Yoonify’s marketplace.

Yoonify cuts out the middlemen and provides John direct access to investors ready to provide capital in return for fractional ownership of multi-family income-generating properties. This is exactly the real-estate segment John works in. 

Now John can raise capital — and at reduced costs thanks to Yoonify’s blockchain-powered efficiency and transparency. With the capital provided by the investors in the Yoonify marketplace, John now has options.

He can use this raised capital to help buy a property that the investors will part own. Or, if he already owns the property, the capital earns the investors part ownership of this existing property and John gets to use the capital he has raised to fund the purchase of another property. In that way, John’s cash flow is improved and he can expand the family business. All while John and his father keep operational control over their properties.

And thanks to the Yoonify technology and the low-cost capital, they can be happy they have also found a way to improve their net operating income.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yoonify is a blockchain-based marketplace, offering you fractional ownership investment in multi-family residential properties. Essentially this investment model is a way of democratizing access to multi-family real estate, previously only available to high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.

As an investor, you have the opportunity to buy fractional ownership in income-generating real estate properties. You will receive monthly dividends, generated from rental income, which will be deposited directly into your bank account. You will also receive full capital gains upside on your investment upon the sale of the property. In addition, you have tax advantages as an ‘owner’ of rental property.

Asset-backed tokens are blockchain-based tokens, which represent units of value that are pegged to real-world assets, such as real estate, or other commodities. They allow users to have fractional ownership rights over a physical and tangible asset in a digital form.
