Company Summary

Successfully investing in real estate requires both market savvy and significant cash up front. So it's no surprise that relatively few people participate. Abuyo will change that. We make real estate investments easy and social, enabling the average person to invest as little as $25, while sharing the appreciation and monthly income from quality rental properties.
