Lofty makes it beyond simple to sell equity in your property with minimal friction and a low fee of only 2.5%.

No more dealing with banks, lenders, agents, title companies, closing costs, and more.

The process couldn't be simpler and faster. We've launched properties within the same week as having the initial call with an owner, and everything is facilitated for you via our white-glove service.

To get started selling your property on Lofty's marketplace, complete this brief survey with more information about your property.

Here's how it works:

  1. An inspection and appraisal is set up for your property.

  2. Transfer your deed to a Wyoming LLC we've already created via FirstTitle. All 150 properties on Lofty are owned by individual Wyoming LLCs with the exact same structure.

  3. We build you a custom property page on our marketplace, and you can start selling equity in your property to thousands of investors right away.

If you sell 20% of your equity, you now own 80% of your property and get 80% of the rent, for example. You can even buy your equity back if you'd like.

If you are managing your property, you can continuing managing it and even charge investors a management fee of your choosing.

Prosper, the owner of this luxury mountain home, sold 50% of his equity now receives 50% of the rent. He continues to manage the property as a Superhost on Airbnb, while charging investors a 20% management fee.

Michael, the owner of this property in Oregon, is selling $500k in equity in their primary residence, paying investors rent, and buying back his equity in 30 years.
