A benefit for financiers, he included, is that each home is had by a minimal responsibility firm, or LLC, details to that building, as well as all financial investments are structured as REITS (realty investment company). So when among those LLCs participates in a finance contract, that finance is not for the financiers as well as they do not need to go with a credit rating record procedure or be responsible for the efficiency of that finance.
