How Ming Zhu Created Fundhomes to Provide Airbnb Investment Opportunities to Average Americans

Investing in vacation rentals can be a lucrative way to generate passive income, but it’s not without its challenges. For many average Americans, the cost and expertise required to invest in Airbnb properties or real estate may be out of reach. That’s where Ming Zhu and Fundhomes come in.

Fundhomes is a fractional real estate investing platform that makes it easy for anyone to invest in vacation rentals. Instead of putting up the entire investment on their own, users can buy shares in ready vacation rentals and earn a good profit. With as little as $50 and in as little as 5 minutes, you can be an investor in a potentially lucrative income-generating investment and work your way up. Whether you’re a new investor or an experienced one, Fundhomes has something to offer you.

Ming, the founder of Fundhomes, and his team handle the difficult tasks, such as finding and renovating properties and making them available to investors. All you have to do is choose from a list of available properties and buy shares. This model allows you to earn dividends and appreciation without putting up a lot of capital or managing the properties yourself. Moreover, you still enjoy all the benefits of real estate investment, like tax deductions, appreciation, and a regular cash dividend.

The benefits of using Fundhomes don’t stop there. In addition to minimizing risks, this business model also allows investors to diversify their investments faster and maximize profitability. By using Fundhomes, you also have access to expert knowledge and support to help you diversify your investment portfolio. The Fundhomes team leverages decades of real estate investing to guide and support users throughout the process, with little to no effort on the investor’s part. This makes real estate investing in vacation rentals more accessible and achievable to more people, from those new to investing who want to start small to experienced investors who want to diversify their portfolios.

Ming was first introduced to the potential of Airbnb investing after building the startup Yirental in 2017, where he saw the potential of renting vacation properties. He decided to invest in a few properties himself and has since grown his portfolio to include 9 units that he personally owns and over 30 units that he manages through his property management company. During his first year of investing, Ming achieved an average of 85% returns, which solidified his belief in the potential of Airbnb investing.

Ming’s success was clearly visible, and it captivated everyone close to him. His friends turned to him for insights on Airbnb investment, and through his support, they have all acquired spectacular achievements in the field. This inspired Ming to create a major tech-backed platform to help others achieve similar success. As an early tech adopter, Ming had sufficient skills from his previous work as an engineer at tech giants Google and Amazon to bring this dream to life.

“I believe that investing in real estate should be easier for everyone and not limited to only people with a large amount of capital,” Ming explains the vision behind Fundhomes. By introducing the fractional investing model, Fundhomes helps average Americans overcome the challenges of investing in vacation rentals and tap into this potentially lucrative market. Ming’s dream is to scale the business further and make it the biggest security trading platform where people can buy and sell shares in vacation homes worldwide.
