Otta's take on Divvy

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

As mortgage rates have dropped to historic lows in recent years, banks tightened property purchase requirements, making the process more restrictive and complex for future homeowners. For this reason, homeownership has become even more inaccessible.

Utah-based Divvy provides a homeownership system that buys houses and rents them back to users to help them access equity for mortgage affordability. Customers choose a home which Divvy purchases on their behalf, with the customer providing up to 2% of upfront value. Renters can then cash out their equity to purchase the home within a three year period, or renew their contract.

In 2021 company was acquired by Bill.com for roughly $2.5 billion and with a network of 25,000 real estate professionals. However since then a cooling real estate market and operational issues leading to higher than market rents and inefficient servicing of its properties has hit the company. It has responded with a restructuring, reducing its headcount to align with market conditions and focus on its core activities. With plenty of runway and a positive revenue it seems likely Divvy will overcome the current difficulties affecting the company and the broader proptech sector.
