Putnam, a national real estate investment company, is taking its first steps into the realm of home ownership with the launch of its Roanhood Investing app.
The app will help people decide whether they’d rather buy a property or a home with a putnam rating and, if so, how much they’d like to invest in the properties.
A Roanoody investment rating is based on the amount of cash you invest into a property and the market value of that property, including any renovations, repairs and other maintenance costs.
The rating is a combination of an investor’s opinion of the quality of the property, the value of the home, the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and other amenities, as well as the size of the lot.
Roanodds are calculated by multiplying the value per square foot of the land area by the annual sales price, then dividing by the average price per square feet of the same land area for the previous 10 years.
Roanoodys are generally based on a combination on the price per-square-foot and the number and type of bedrooms and bathrooms.
The higher the price, the more expensive the property.
The more bedrooms and/or bathrooms, the higher the value.
Roans can also be calculated by dividing the number (the number of) bedrooms, a percentage of the number, or the total number of rooms.
In addition to being a home investment tool, the app is designed to help people make better-informed decisions on what to buy and to keep themselves from falling behind in the market.
Putnam CEO Scott Dolan said the app will enable homeowners to better understand the different types of investments, make decisions about their property and how to pay for it, while being able to see how much money their mortgage is actually paying for.
A similar app called Wealthy Home has also been in development at Putnam for some time, but Dolan noted that this is the first time that the Roanodys app will be available on the Apple Watch.
This could be a sign that the company is getting serious about home ownership, but it’s hard to say for sure just yet.
Putnick said that Roanudys ratings could change depending on whether people find the app useful or not, as Roanodyns ratings will likely be a factor in determining whether or not someone should invest in a home.
