DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invitation Homes Inc. (NYSE: INVH) (“Invitation Homes” or the “Company”) announced today it has committed to providing $250 million of equity capital to launch Pathway Homes (“Pathway”), a new real estate company that provides unique housing solutions that address critical needs in the U.S. residential sector. Pathway works directly with customers to identify and purchase a home, offering them the opportunity to first lease and then buy the home outright at a future date. In addition to investing in the homes and technology platform for the startup and its real estate fund, Invitation Homes will provide maintenance and other services to all Pathway homes, enabling the Company to broaden its third-party property management services.
“Our investment in Pathway is part of our vision to provide opportunity and choice in the overall housing market,” said Dallas Tanner, President & CEO of Invitation Homes. “We saw an opportunity a decade ago to revolutionize the home rental industry and, now more than ever, believe that the single-family rental model is an advantage for the growing share of Americans who are opting not to buy a house. Now, with this innovative solution, we once again expand available housing choices and open the door to homeownership for millions of people who want to own a home.”
Pathway was launched by Invitation Homes, Regis Group and Fifth Wall with the intention of primarily serving first-time homebuyers that may not have access to traditional avenues to home ownership. For more information on Pathway or to get pre-qualified, visit www.yourpathway.com.
