Independent Research

The QREAL program offers investors the opportunity to invest into selected residential apartment projects and purchase an apartment at a substantial reduction to the typical market price.

Quantum may engage independent research firms or may provide sourced information on each development project.

The investment involves an investment in a Trust that invests in the developer, the Land holding vehicle. In return each investor is offered interest on this Trust and an option over an apartment in the project, i.e. the ability to purchase an apartment at a reduced cost or at a discount. The reduction in the apartment purchase price is via a standard sales contract (10% deposit) with a special condition that reflects the discount. The result is that investors are able to secure an apartment via investing in the development using their equity and purchase an apartment below the apartment marketing price list.

The result is that investors are able to secure an apartment for approximately at a substantial discount to the market.
