7% Net Guaranteed Annual Rental Return for Three Years

Orpheus Ski Apartment House management offers a three-year Rental Guarantee Program at no cost to the investor as the management company absorbs the risks. Owners enjoy trouble-free ownership and guaranteed rental income for three years.

Innovative Ownership Model provides Land Ownership and Management Control

• Real estate ownership of the apartment unit, and
• Capital share ownership in the company that owns the project
