Flock Homes Benefits

Consumer Benefits

  • Reliable income without the work: your clients can enjoy investment income without having to worry about finding tenants or late night calls about pipes bursting. Flock leverages its top class expertise, institutional scale, and broad network of expert partners to efficiently operate all homes on a daily basis and generate income back to owners.
  • Tax-deferred exit: clients exit their property tax-free; they’re enabled to spread tax liabilities across years, which could result in lower costs over time.
  • Continued access to appreciation potential: clients still maintain an investment in residential real estate and therefore benefit from any future appreciation of all of Flock's houses . As a result, they aren't forced to "sell low" like they might in a traditional sale. Flexible estate planning: owning shares in a portfolio of assets rather than one illiquid property allows clients to split assets across multiple heirs; beneficiaries will also receive a step-up in basis upon inheritance.
  • Build while diversifying risk: clients can save for the future without worrying about sudden loss from damage or vacancies with a single property; Flock diversifies risk across the full portfolio of assets and geographies, so your client isn’t the one holding the bag if their property needs a roof replaced!

Agent Benefits

  • Unlock a new client base: because of our unique value proposition, we commonly transact with landlords who may not want to incur the taxes or lose their real estate exposure in a traditional list and sale. As a result, you can access clients with off-market properties that may not ordinarily list on the MLS.
  • We'll do the heavy lifting, you'll get paid: Flock has its own team of real estate advisors and experts who can walk through the offer and ultimately close the transaction. All you have to do is get them on the phone with our team. We earmark all clients that come through you, and you'll get 3% commission on each transaction that closes with them. If a seller's agreement is in place, we'll follow the terms of the seller's agreement accordingly.
  • We're still buying: we know transaction volumes are low. We're still buying.
