Rently | January 12, 2023
Rently, the industry leader in self-touring and smart home technology solutions, recently introduced a new feature on its Smart Home App. This new feature will assist technicians in accelerating the installation process using automated tools. It will also enable property managers to receive real-time notifications about successful smart home activations.
Installers can now easily verify their identity and begin the installation process using Rently's Smart Home App. The app also provides stepwise instructions, guiding the installers through the entire process. This removes the need to call technical support to activate devices, which leads to significant time savings.
Merrick Lackner, the CEO of Rently, states, "Rently recognizes the critical role that installers play in the deployment of smart home technology." He further added, "By eliminating the requirement for installers to contact intermediary technical support teams—just to verify device testing and activation—we hope to save them time, facilitate their projects, and make it easy for them to report their success to managers who receive these real-time updates on their Rently desktop portal."

Cadre | March 01, 2023
On February 28, 2023, Cadre, a technology-driven real estate investment management leader, announced its launch of an individual retirement account (IRA) solution. Through the solution, the investors are enabled to allocate their IRA funds into CRE (commercial real estate) via the Carde platform. The real estate company anticipates that the new investment option will continue to broaden access to CRE – a typically tax-advantaged asset class with more extended investment periods and attractive risk-adjusted returns relative to stocks.
IRA investors who experienced a challenging year in 2022 would be offered Carde's new solution. According to the Investment Company Institute, between Q1 and Q3 2022, U.S. retirement market assets decreased by more than 18% and lost $7.1 trillion. As per YCharts, S&P 500 Index Returns, and NCREIF Property Index, total returns for all property types IRAs held the majority of retirement assets holding over $11 trillion in assets allocated to equity funds. While S&P 500 index declined by more than 13%, whereas NCREIF Property Index increased by 9.13%.
Cadre's IRA solution follows the 2022 launch of the Cadre Horizon Fund, enabling retirement-focused investors to allocate IRA funds to the Fund via Cadre's online platform. The Cadre Horizon Fund can be held with a number of leading IRA custodians, including Equity Trust Company, The Entrust Group, and Millennium Trust Company. In addition, Cadre's Investor Relations team can help interested investors navigate the allocation process and determine Cadre's compatibility with other preferred IRA custodians.
Based in New York, Cadre is the premier technology-driven commercial real estate investment platform that offers individuals and institutional investors the opportunity to access expertly curated real estate assets with low fees, lower minimums, and unprecedented potential for liquidity. Cadre enables access to a historically opaque and illiquid asset class through its data-driven and transparent methodology. Cadre has closed more than $5 billion in real estate transactions across 25 U.S. markets since its founding in 2014.
