Cadre is a real estate technology platform that levels the playing field in real estate investing by opening opportunities to invest in fully vetted, institutional-quality real estate projects to individual investors. The platform is constantly evolving as the team implements additional tools. One of Cadre’s major product launches this year was its Secondary Market.
Over the last 20 years, commercial real estate investment returns have outperformed the S&P 500 at less than half the volatility. However, long hold periods for private real estate investments mean any capital is tied up until the asset is sold, sometimes up to 10 years. Cadre Secondary Market allows investors to buy and sell holdings prior to realization. This is paving the way for a truly liquid real estate investing market.
Real estate has been an illiquid asset class where investors have been exposed to market volatility. The traditional process takes days to complete with investors lacking insight into the process. In a first for the industry, Cadre is creating liquidity by allowing buyers and sellers to make trusted, transparent transactions on the platform, and therefore removing barriers to entry. Cadre curated this platform by securing institutional-quality deals, creating a trusted group of investors and operators, and building the advanced technology needed to complete complex transactions in a seamless manner.
Real estate is historically the top wealth creator in the United States, yet the exceptionally high barriers to entry have kept all but the largest institutional investors locked out. Cadre’s mission is to break down the barriers. The Secondary Market is a major step in that direction, accelerating the potential for individual investors to have liquidity. In turn, platform members are able to invest with greater comfort and flexibility knowing they can seek a buyer for their position directly on the platform.
