Our A.I. Predicts Future Home Appreciation

We take in every kind of data you can imagine from social media posts to satellite and street view imagery, along with conventional home sales data and everything in between.

Our Mission and Core Team

Before creating Lofty we wanted to buy an affordable home that was likely to go up in value. We quickly grew tired of searching with realtors advising us based on very little data. And so, we learned of pain points in the market: finding the right home to buy is both hard and scary. And that is why we made Lofty, to tackle these pain points head on. Our mission is simple:

To use data driven insights and intelligent hedging to help everyday people take the difficulty out of choosing a home, and the fear out of buying it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lofty AI uses artifical intelligence to find you properties in neighborhoods primed for appreciation. After you sell the property in 3 years, we take 20% of the gross profit. If the property sells for less than what you originally paid in 3 years, we will write you a check for value lost.

Lofty AI is best for people who are: 1. Thinking of buying their first home, but are nervous about losing money. 2. Looking for higher returns than normal by buying properties in an appreciating neighborhood early.

Absolutely! We’ll send you a list of our available properties and you pick the one that best fits your criteria.

Check out the markets we currently serve here.

Lofty AI makes money by taking a 20% cut of gross profit upon the sale of a property.

We will open an investment account with a 3rd party, which may only invest in risk-free US Treasury notes, to hold the on-going losses of the property determined monthly by multiplying the rate of change on the median home price of the neighborhood, which is determined by the average of MLS median home price statistic for the home's surrounding neighborhood. Should the paper value of the specified property become higher than the original purchase price, Lofty AI will withdraw the previously deposited funds back into its own corporate account. This process shall be repeated indefinitely until the expiration of this agreement to ensure loss protection.

You must either sell the property or hold the property and pay Lofty AI 20% of the difference between the appraised price today and the original sales price.

We get our properties from listing sites and the MLS.

Yes. You may send us the address for the property and we will check to see if it fits within our models parameters. If it does, we would do an agreement for the property.

Any property type for sale up to $1.2M USD.

We are not involved with the buying or lending process. Our agreement officially starts after you close on the on the home purchase.

You own the title to the home.

Instead of taking the standard 20% of the gross profit after the sale we would take 30% instead. The additional 10% is a penalty for exiting the contract prematurely. Additionally, Lofty AI would no longer be held responsible for any losses resulting from the premature sale.

Yes you can, both long-term and short-term. However, keep in mind that you must maintain the quality of the property even if you have tenants.

1. Soft credit check (won’t affect your credit score).
2. Full Name.
3. Job Title and Employer.
4. Annual Salary

If you provide a receipt for all the value added work to the property, the amount will be subtracted from the gross profit in 3 years. Therefore, Lofty AI's portion of the profit would also decrease as a result and you would not be penalized for adding value to the property.
