Real Estate & Off-Market

With a combined value North of $280 trillion, Real estate is larger than all listed equity, debt & oil markets. Real estate is more than 3x the value of Global GDP.

Due to its stable value, low correlation to the capital markets and inflation protection, real estate should be considered by every investor as part of a holistic and long-term asset structuring process.

ClubDeal.com

The question is not whether to go online through ClubDeal.com instead of selling traditionally, as we see ourselves as an added tool rather than an alternative. However, we do know from experience that the traditional brokerage model has limitations, especially in the ultra-luxury realm. In the rarified air where the buyer pool is limited, properties simply aren’t very liquid, even in healthy market conditions.

We believe “Luxury” as a whole, contrasts with “mass” distribution.

ClubDeal.com’s objective is to gather pre-selected buyers thus have a targeted and filtered approach rather than distribute information massively, since we believe it affects, “popularize” your asset and transform it into a “common” or “any other” asset. It’s loosing its exclusivity.

Real Estate agents, by contrast, is a large group of professionals accessing less restricted or unrestricted projects. Their objective is to submit as broadly as possible their clients’ assets so it reaches the potential buyers.

A “Club” is by definition an exclusive association of a limited number of investors to share, protect, support the confidentiality of a common project or of an exclusive asset. An online confidentiality agreement will be provided and signed for each client and transaction.

Therefore, this market is usually reserved for institutional investors. Investing through a club deal in this context, therefore, represents a real opportunity to integrate institutional quality assets into your portfolio.

Competitive advantages :

  • Better selection: Collective intelligence will favour the best projects and eliminate the weaker ones.
  • Better sourcing: Leading platforms funnel curated projects, irrespective of their country of origin, generating a wider deal flow, and attracting a growing investor pool.
  • Marketing automation: Online marketplaces embrace marketing automation by integrating emailing power, social community management, and data analysis.
  • Relation automation: Online marketplaces facilitate the transition to full automation by channeling data
  • Funding at every level: time is money, and raising money takes a lot of time. Too much time kills projects.

ClubDeal.com, is unique as it offers access to a diversified investor base outside their domestic market.  Meanwhile, European investors are increasingly looking to broaden their exposure to US real estate sector, which has benefited significantly from tax reforms, technology disruption and a booming multi-family residential sector. Middle Eastern and Asian investors are looking for opportunities in European biggest cities like Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, etc… since the offers are getting more and more limited.

In a few months, ClubDeal.com has become  the biggest real estate "club deal" listing platform in the world. A tremendous achievement. Not only does it underline the scale of demand among partners for access to new funding sources but also increasing the appetite among investors to deploy their capital beyond their domestic market.

We look forward to welcoming increasing numbers of new Members to ClubDeal.com

We are a CLOSED and OFF-MARKET platform for all international properties where hidden information such as "Price Upon Demand" can finally be disclosed.

Investors can choose the assets, and the capital they place on their projects of choice.
Investors avoid numerous intermediaries (funds and funds intermediaries, bank, custodian, brokers, real estate agents).
Substantially more transparency and control than that afforded by a fund,  unrestricted access to the operating information.

  • More targeted results, for a fraction of the cost.
  • Maximum efficiency: NO un-deployed Investor monies.
  • Interactions between Family Offices. A savvy Board can be a source of strategic initiatives and ideas (ie. M&A) and stimulate the executive/operational teams to think more broadly and creatively about opportunities.

Every market has a threshold above which homes are more difficult to monetize, and the typical tools of price reductions and prolonged real estate agents’ advertising and PR exposure can hurt more than help the outcome of sale. Especially when it comes to EUR2 million, EUR10 million and EUR20-plus million homes, price often has no bearing on interest level, and price reductions are ineffective.

ClubDeal.com solves this conundrum by keeping assets OFF-market and in full transparency for your Members.
