Our mission at LEX is to empower wealth creation by solving real estate’s access and liquidity problems.

This offering was recently qualified by the SEC, and the IPO starts today. Shares are offered on a first come, first served basis and the price at the time of IPO is always $250 (we factor in the valuation of the asset by adjusting the number of shares in the offering, not the price per share). The IPO period will stay open until all shares have been purchased. If you had previously submitted an indication of interest, you’ll need to return to LEX to complete your purchase once the IPO begins.
