Why Flock?

We're at the beginning of the largest transfer of wealth in human history. In the coming decades, millions of mom-and-pop landlords, who own trillions of dollars of real estate, will pass their properties on to the next generation.

At some point, every landlord faces the same problem: they don't want to own, but they don't want to sell. Why? The loss of income and appreciation, depreciation recapture and capital gains, the hassles of getting a house ready to sell – the list goes on.

Flock is building the retirement solution for landlords. Our first offering is a tech-driven 721 Exchange, helping individual rental property owners seamlessly convert their real estate into shares in a professionally managed portfolio of homes. Some people call it the UPREIT; we call it "The People’s REIT."

We’re fortunate to be backed by a great group of venture capital firms, including Andreessen Horowitz, Human Capital, Susa Ventures, Box Group, and Primary Venture Partners, as well as a large network of strategic investors, including 1Sharpe Ventures, Redwood Trust (NYSE: RWT), Fred Tuomi (former CEO of Invitation Homes), and Eric Wu (former CEO of Opendoor). Since our launch two years ago we've grown from 5 homes to 500 homes, and we're just getting started.
