Northern New England Housing Investment Fund is flexible in terms of how investments are structured. To best meet the needs and goals of our investors, we offer the following investing options:

Traditional multi-investor fund
This is the platform NNEHIF uses most often. The multi-investor fund offers investors a diversified investment in a variety of properties. The investor’s ownership percentage is relative to the number of other investors in the fund.

Proprietary fund
This type of fund is used when a single investor wishes to establish a fund with multiple properties. This platform can be more efficient, particularly if the investor is considering a relatively significant level of investment.

Direct investment
A direct investment is when an investor takes an ownership percentage of a specific project and another entity makes the balance of the investment, often a multi-investor fund. An investor could also be the sole investor in a property. Since these investments are for specific properties, the risk profile is different than it is with the other investment choices.

In all cases, we provide the same syndication, asset management services and investor reporting specific to each investor’s needs.
