OVERLAND PARK, Kan., May 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — LODAS Markets announced today that VineBrook Homes Trust, which is externally managed by NexPoint Real Estate Advisors V, L.P. (together with its affiliates “NexPoint”), is now trading on LODASMarkets.com, joining more than 30 non-traded and private REIT securities currently offered on the proprietary LODAS marketplace.
“We’re excited to offer VineBrook Homes Trust investors the secondary liquidity they may seek and appreciate the opportunity to partner with NexPoint, one of the leading – and most influential – managers of alternative investments,” said LODAS Markets CEO Brian King. “We look forward to building upon this relationship as we offer investors of all sizes the ability to buy when they want to buy and sell when they want to sell.”
Today’s news follows the first-quarter launch of trading on LODAS in two important non-listed REITs whose investors may seek liquidity: Blackstone REIT (BREIT) and Starwood REIT (SREIT). LODAS currently has nearly $1 billion in buy side interest for BREIT alone and has a large stable of institutional and accredited buyers prepared to provide liquidity to securities offered on the LODAS marketplace.
The LODAS name underscores the company’s pledge to offer Liquidity On Demand As a Service, providing individuals and sponsors with liquidity on their terms. As the first fully-automated online marketplace matching buyers and sellers of alternative and real estate investments, LODAS operates like an exchange where assets like non-traded REITs, business development corporations (BDCs) and private real estate investments trade similar to corporate stocks.
LODAS was founded as Realto, Inc., in 2021 and offers trading in more than 30 non-traded and private REIT securities with its digital system executing trades quickly and settling in as few as five days, much faster than the multi-week process that’s long been industry standard. To date, LODAS has empowered a vast community of more than 1200 individuals and professionals to transact seamlessly across 46 diverse REITs and BDCs, ranging in value from $500 million to $71 billion, offering needed liquidity to investors that otherwise could not access liquidity in their investments.
