Solution

Market Needs

The Toronto real estate market has become unattainable for many over the past decade. COVID-19 has only intensified the growth of the market, particularly with respect to single family homes, where prices have increased year over year by 27 percent. 

The single family home market has experienced such unprecedented growth due to two primary drivers: people are seeking more space both inside and outside due to COVID-19 restrictions. There is a lack of inventory for single family homes in Toronto and Greater Toronto Area (GTA). 

Those trying to break into the market or diversify their portfolios by investing in the Toronto real estate market are increasingly unable to do so as they don't have the required seed capital.  And if they do have the necessary seed capital, not everyone has the ability or desire to deal with the added costs and responsibility of property management. 

Changing the Way that People can Invest in Real Estate

ONE Development Corporation is changing the way that people can access the Toronto real estate market. As they are offering the opportunity to invest to those who:

  • Do not have a large amount of seed capital to invest; and
  • Do not want to deal with the additional costs often associated with property management.

ONE Development has a professional team that has done all of the research for investors, from the way that they select properties to the types of homes they are building. They do the leg work for you, helping to provide a solid return on investment. 

The Solution

Solution

How it Works

The business model for ONE Development is simple and straightforward, focused on cultivating a high rate of return for investors. 

The general template that all projects will follow is illustrated below. All projects begin with the acquisition of an ageing property in a desirable neighbourhood in Toronto. A modern re-design plan is created and undergoes the permitting process. From permit approval, the property is completed within a 12 month period and sold for about double its purchase price according to current financial projections.

Solution

The business model is then expanded to multiple projects over the next several years, four a year by year three and six a year by year five. The current business model covers a seven year schedule.

Traction

ONE Development has already raised $550,000 through a $400,000 three year note and a $150,000 shareholder loan. 

ONE Development has done the research and has an experienced team who understands the Toronto real estate market. 

They are setting themselves apart from the competition by offering: 

  • A synergistic approach with a team focus 
  • Financial and Corporate Strategies 
  • Property Analysis for property selection
  • Lending Analysis 

ONE Development has identified a sweet spot in the Toronto Real Estate development market. The company has positioned itself to handle projects under $5 million, where developers with this detailed planning and skill set typically don’t play. ONE Development is also positioned to understand the potential pitfalls that many smaller scale developers encounter and have mitigated for them. 

Our Differentiation

Dif

Sales to Date and Future Projections

ONE Development has a straightforward business plan, starting with their first home acquisition and redevelopment in 2021/2022. You can see from their forecasted projections that their growth is steady over the coming years. This growth provides our investors with a steady rate of return.

Solution

Essential to ONE Development's forecasted growth is the ability to continually grow the number of property acquisitions and redevelopments over the coming years. Starting in year one, with the first project. 

Solution

Offering

ONE Development is offering the opportunity to investors who want to diversify their portfolio or who would like to access the Toronto real estate market. Invest in a company that has done their due diligence and is growing, and watch your investment grow with them.

Solution

ONE Development has an estimated annual return on equity, available to common shareholders of 73 percent, once they reach 6 projects per year. This rate of return compares very favourably when one considers that the return on equity on the entire stock market is less than 10 percent. 

You can invest in ONE Development starting from $500, and there are no fees for you to invest through the Equivesto portal.

One Development plans to raise a total of at least $500,000, with $200,000 of that to be raised in this initial equity crowdfunding round.  

Investments in ONE Development of $2,500 or greater are TFSA/RRSP Eligible.  Equivesto and ONE Development have partnered with a 3rd party Trust company to make this possible.  There is additional paperwork required and an annual fee to hold your investment in a TFSA/RRSP.  To hold your investment in a TFSA/RRSP, make your investment normally, and afterwards email alexander.morsink@equivesto.com to begin the process.  Click here to learn more.  

Use of Funds

One hundred percent of the funds raised through Equivesto will go towards the mortgage and construction loan down payment for their first build. 

Exit Strategy

Here is your path to liquidity with ONE Development: 

 

 

Preferred shares with 10% return, plus ability to convert to common shares with a 38% discount, with an anticipated value for the company of 10.5MM in 7 years.

 

Invest in ONE Development, diversify your portfolio with a piece of the Toronto real estate market and let a team of experts to manage it for you while you watch your seed investment grow! 

It all starts with ONE!

FAQs

Is this investment TFSA/RRSP Eligible?

Yes it is!  Investments in One Development over $2,500 are TFSA/RRSP eligible.  Please reach out to alexander.morsink@equivesto.com for more details, or visit our Learning Centre to learn more.  

Have One Development completed any previous projects?

ONE Development is a new company and has not officially completed full redevelopment projects however is certainly positioned to do so. ONE Development operates as true developer that contracts professional architects and construction firms that specialize in modern home design. Our network of architects and construction firms have completed thousands of homes across the GTA, many of which with prominent modern designs. Jason Ferreira, Founder/CEO has also completed many renovation projects through his own personal investment strategy. With Jason’s high level business experience combined with his Team of industry experts, it’s ONE's goal to redevelop the Toronto real estate market with well built, and desirable modern homes for market sale.

Is the 10% dividend for three years guaranteed?

The 10% dividend for 3 years is outlined in the rights of the Class C Preference Shares.  As per the shareholder's Agreement and the Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation, One Development is required to pay the 10% annual dividend to Class C Preference Shareholders.  If One Development is not able to pay the dividend as required, that dividend will be considered an owed payable to all investors, and will remain owned until it is paid.  If One Development does not pay the 10% annual dividend to Class C Preference Shareholders that would be a clear breach of contract.  

Essentially, yes the 10% annual dividend for 3 years is guaranteed.  

When is your dividend payout scheduled to start?

It is the intention of the Company to begin the Class C Preference Shares Dividend payouts on September 30, 2021 and every quarter thereafter, that is every December 31, March 31, June 30, and September 30 thereafter.  This is of course given that the campaign is successful and ONE Development is able to achieve the $500,000 minimum raise.
