Individual investors searching for diversification and higher yields often look to invest in real estate. However, the barriers to entry into the investment real estate market can present significant challenges.

How does Real Estate Syndication work?

Real estate syndication is an effective way for individual investors to combine their financial and intellectual resources to invest in properties or projects much larger than they could manage or afford on their own. As well, it allows them to compete on an even playing field with larger institutional investors.

Why is Real Estate such a strong investment?

  • Commercial real estate can generate more consistent cash flow (income) from rent than most traditional stocks.
  • Real estate is a tangible hard asset that has intrinsic value to its users.
  • Real estate can be a great hedge against inflation.
  • For investors looking for consistent income from their portfolios, real estate can be an attractive alternative to bonds.
  • Property is a limited resource and in growing communities demand can often outpace supply.
