With hBits, property-owners grow rich in their sleep. It’s a strange assertion.
However, the stranger is the term itself, property-owners. A mix of two mouthful words, ‘property’ and ‘Owners,’ with a tint of feudal nobility, referring to a sophisticated breed of men and women who rent out land and buildings.
There are a ton of property owners. But the million-dollar question is how to be a successful property-owner?
Here, we’re not merely talking about owning a piece of real estate. Our approach is rather turning a real estate that works for you. To make it your asset—an A Grade pre-leased property that secures a regular monthly income in form of rentals.
Up until recent years, the arrangement around property ownership has been more or less the same across communities and cultures. One either purchased the property, or he arranged a rental agreement with a property owner.
In traditional ways of ownership, there was often a resurfacing market risk that investors pretended to ignore.
However, today the business models have evolved to a point where several unrelated investors can share the ownership of high-value property. Of course, you share the rewards with other co-owners but at the same time, you’re also mitigating the risk of ownership. This encapsulates your investment in a far lesser risk.
Imagine owning a 25 percent stake in potentially high-growth investment property at a prime location without knowing the other investors.
This concept is termed as Fractional Ownership.
This is what hBits does.
hBits is a platform that enables Fractional Ownership in high-value properties, creating a new set of opportunities and implications.
We’re the leading storytellers of how new investors are willing to embrace the sharing economy for mutual benefits.
The most appealing side of fractional ownership is how you can hedge and distribute the risk and downside of an investment, while at the same time receiving stable benefits.
Could fractional ownership be the future of investments?
Our guess is YES. We’re betting on the positive side of this prevalent sharing economy, which as per economic times, is going to dominate investments in the 21st century.
Undoubtedly, Fractional Ownership has opened the gates of a new market in real estate. Our goal as a firm that provides an accessible platform for investors to co-own the Grade A commercial assets, is to simplify the process of buying, renting, and reselling the properties.
We have devised an efficient online and offline system that works for all, investors, negotiators, and sellers.
Let’s see how hBits simplifies fractional ownership for investors.
We do our homework.
In India, there is a total stock of more than 500 million square feet of Grade A assets. These assets are located in Information Technology parks and commercial buildings.
Top-quality developers construct these properties and Grade A tenants occupy these spaces. This mix of top developers and tenants is what makes these properties high yielding investment, with stable rental and appreciation.
Here are five attributes of hBits workflow that ensures a profitable investment:
1. Secure Cashflow:
The key to any successful investment is ensuring a stable cash flow throughout the term of ownership. We ensure this by managing four factors.
- Quality Tenants
The benefit of owning a high-value property is that you get reliable long-term tenants. These consist of companies with strong credit ratings. We cross-check the background of tenants and their paying capacity before enrolling them in the process.
Lock-in guarantees that a tenant doesn’t leave mid-way. This is secured by leave and license agreements which range from three to five years of lock-in period time.
- Fill-out costs
The more the investment a tenant does on a property, the certain it is that it will stick to it. As a secondary rule, the furnishing and fit-outs in the lent out properties are funded by the tenants, ensuring his loyalty.
- Security Deposits
Even during a sudden unforeseen crisis, if the tenant is compelled to leave the property, we check their exit through a security deposit of at least six months. This grants us a sufficient transition period to lease out the property to another tenant.
2. Appreciation Potential:
The sign of a good real estate investment is that its value should increase with time. This is why we check the property price appreciation potential before investing in them. This broadly touches two areas:
- Rental Escalation:
We ensure that contractually our rental rates increase by 15% every three years. This contractual agreement between tenants and owners guarantees a steady boost in the rentals.
- Market Appreciation:
The positive return on the investment is what decides the value of the property in the future. This is why we do a proper selection of micro-market through a diligent analysis of supply-demand dynamics, ensuring a steady increase in the value of property over time.
3. Hard Asset Ownership:
The nature of real estate is that it’s a tangible asset of a resource with a fundamental value. This is what makes it a hard asset, with a minimal downside. It naturally secures you from the upheavals of the market.
4. Asset Diversification:
Asset diversification is an investment strategy. It’s based on the premise that a portfolio of multiple asset types will perform better than individual assets.
We ensure a healthy asset diversification by customizing your portfolio based on traditional equity and debt instruments. And if you don’t like where you are, we can move. We are not a tree.
5. Minimum Costs:
Our objective is to give maximum returns for minimum investments. We achieve this by being transparent in our proceedings and agreements. We don’t entertain any hidden or subsequent expenses while investing in pre-released assets.
Apart from that, we ensure that the Common Area Maintenance (CAM) and Property Tax are underwritten in the purchase price of the asset, resulting in minimum costs for investors.
The major fortunes in the world have been made through investment in properties. The wisdom from the west says that we’re not supposed to hold ourselves from buying real estate. Rather we should buy and then hold to the real estate.
For most of us, the problem is not the will to invest in a profitable property. Rather it’s the hassle of buying, renting, and selling properties. For us, a problem is an opportunity.
At hBits, we have simplified Fractional Ownership into a simple four step process.

We also provide an online all-time accessible dashboard that provides insights on your property’s performance with all the upcoming events related to your portfolio.
Step 4 – Sell
We help you re-lease your property in case of contract expiration or simply if you wish to sell your holdings. Our online hBits platform can also help you sell it to another community member.
This new age of shared economy brings in a sustainable solution in a market that is still struggling through a pandemic.
It’s beneficial for property owners to build quality properties.
It’s beneficial for negotiators who choose to sell and earn through transparent and manageable online platforms.
