Nomad closes on $20M to ‘transform the landlord-tenant experience

Nomad is a marketplace that plans to furnish humble investment property proprietors with “ensured lease”. It has brought $20 million up in a Series A subsidizing round drove by Silicon Valley Bank Capital.
The funding has happened only a half year after the Denver-based startup brought about $5 million up in a seed round of financing. Traveler’s fellow benefactors PJ O’Neil and Matt Thelen began the organization in the wake of leaving their particular jobs at Opendoor and Twilio. O’Neil was a head supervisor at Opendoor and Thelen was overseer of business activities at Twilio.

About Nomad and its work

Established in 2020’s, Nomad will probably eliminate hazard and monetary vulnerability for humble investment property proprietors. Today, it offers a few monetary items for both rental proprietors and their occupants. Its leader item is ensured lease for mother and-pop investment property proprietors (essentially DIY landowners), which is intended to give these property managers more sureness even in tempestuous economic situations.

In 2021, Nomad said it grew “8x,” or 700% year over year, processed over $10 million of rent, and guaranteed rent for a portfolio of homes valued in excess of $250 million. It also has grown its team from 12 to 40 today and has more than 1,000 customers on its platform, including owners and residents. 

Last year, the company also entered the Phoenix market and is eyeing Raleigh and then Charlotte, North Carolina, next. It also added more financial products for rental owners such as rent advance, rewards for tenured residents, and brokerage services that give its customers a way to buy, sell, rent, and manage with its support.

Plans with the funding

Nomad also wants to help renters by positioning them to be first-time homebuyers. For example, it reports on-time rent payments to credit agencies to help tenants build their credit. It also offers rebates to cover closing costs if one chooses to buy their first home using Nomad.

The company plans to use its new capital to hire dozens more employees this year and expand its geographical footprint to up to 10 new markets over the next 24 months. It also plans to continue to invest in its technology and partner with local real estate agents, property managers, lenders, and service professionals.

Chris Erickson from Range Ventures, who wrote the first check into Nomad and co-founded Apartment List, believes the single-family rental market is going through a major shift. “We are watching as billions of dollars in institutional capital is being deployed in the space and as first-time homebuyers are increasingly getting locked out of owning a home,” he wrote via email.
