Why invest in a multifamily apartment syndication?

A Multifamily Apartment Syndication allows investors to participate in otherwise unobtainable real estate investment opportunities by aggregating capital and experience by teaming up with other like-minded investors. This also allows you to diversify your capital into other real estate syndications or in other economic sectors.

How do I know if I am a sophisticated investor or an accredited investor?

To qualify as an accredited investor, at a minimum you must have earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year or has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). Reference the SEC guidelines at https://www.sec.gov/answers/rule506.htm for a more detailed description.  To find out if you are qualified under this definition, contact us.

Do we accept foreign investments?

Quarterly distributions is the standard, however, each syndication is a businesses with varying distribution amounts based on the performance of the property.  Each syndication has a specific strategy based on the specific value-add components of the asset.

What is a K-1?

As a partner in the LLC that purchases the properties, you will receive a K-1. A K-1 is a tax form used by partnerships to provide investors with detailed information on their share of a partnership’s taxable income. Partnerships are generally not subject to federal or state income tax, but instead issue a K-1 to each investor to report his or her share of the partnership’s income, gains, losses, deductions and credits. The K-1s are provided to investors on an annual basis so that each investor can include K-1 amounts on his or her tax return.

When will the K-1 be available to investors?

Our goal is to finalize all K-1s by March 31st, however, we do rely on outside reporting and may require additional time to furnish the forms in a way that is to the investor’s best advantage. Accordingly, you may be required to obtain one or more extensions for filing federal, state and local tax returns.

Can I add funds after my initial investment?

Typically, you can add funds to the initial investment, but it will depend on the phase of where the investment is.

Can I invest if I live in another state?

Yes.  The requirement for investing is that you have a US tax ID, be it for a business or your personal social security number.

What is the difference between this and a REIT?

A REIT is a piece of paper, very much similar to a stock. This is an investment in real-estate, backed by a hard asset.  K-1’s are generated as opposed to 1099’s.  Money cannot be pulled out of the real-estate investment at anytime whereas stocks are liquid investments.
