Benefits of Investing Locally

  • Local investment improves the neighborhoods we live in

  • Direct investment that cuts out the middle man

Why we use very little Debt

  • Cash that would otherwise go to paying interest, instead goes to shareholders

  • Having too much debt could motivate a quick sell, rather than waiting until the market is ready

  • Reduces risk of loan default
