It’s quite clear that decousa.com has a distinct product focus: The non-US investor and real estate buyer. Deco USA is making it very easy for a non-US investor to buy US-based real estate (in Florida) or invest in a “real estate investment fund” (or REIF). With regard to the REIF, it works like this: Deco USA has a series of REIFs that focus exclusively on Lennar’s ChampionsGate development in Orlando – which are resort-style homes and condos with amenities for visitors like golf, tennis, water parks, and open spaces for children. The units are new and fully furnished for visiting tourists (Orlando was the most visited city in the US last year for vacationers and business visitors).
The Deco Champions REIF is for 40 individual investors who buy shares in a specific purpose company (LLC) at a price of $50,500 USD each. This generates $2 million USD to be used to acquire a variety of these ChampionsGate homes that are furnished and made available for rental, managed by professional property managers who keep the units maintained and available for new visitors on a daily or weekly basis. The purchase price of $50,500 USD can be financed over a 4-year period with a $15,500 USD cash deposit at inception, and then payments of less than $1,000 USD per month. Deco Champions not only offers ownership in each REIF but also allows the REIF owners to use one of the houses one week per year at no cost, and if that owner prefers not to, they can sell that week and keep the rental income for themselves. Overall, the investor benefits as follows: Investment in US dollars acts as a hedge against currency devaluation, annual earnings based on home rentals, appreciation over time in the value of the homes, and 1 week free stay in Orlando per year (use of the home or extra rental income). This REIF model offers a way to invest in US real estate with less capital, assisted by a four-year financing schedule of payments that makes it an affordable alternative.
