What is the length of term on investment?

The length of the term varies by development, with most projects projecting an average of 3 - 5 years to complete.

Why is Partners a great investment alternative?

Gatehouse’s projects are initiated based on their profitability, meaning, we only move forward with a project if it can ensure a significant return for investors. Gatehouse Partners investment products are located in high-density, high-performing markets where home and land values are only increasing.

Through the combined security and margin of safety built into our private real estate investment approach, you’ll have peace of mind investing in Gatehouse projects. Preferred payout structures make real estate an accessible and safe investment option in Canada.

Once a home is sold, investors receive their total return before anyone else participates in profits. We also mitigate risk through pre-sales before build, accessible to investors, mitigating initial risk on a project.

When do I get paid?

The principal, preferred return, and profit are paid out upon the sales of completed homes. You’ll have the opportunity to cash out on your investment, convert it into a down payment, or reinvest and grow in the next Gatehouse real estate project.
