Our whitepapers are written to assist in understanding the complexities of the commercial real estate industry.

Why hold commercial real estate for the long term?

Most successful private real estate investors hold properties for the long term: 10 years, 20 years, or for multiple generations in Trusts. Most Institutional investors and REITs hold their properties for 5 to 10 years, as they are more return driven.

 

 


How do real estate partnerships work?

The type of Real Estate Investment Partnerships we use are called “Group/Sponsor” partnerships. The “group” is the investor group, and the “sponsor” is the developer, promoter, or manager. The investors must be qualified. A “qualified investor” is one who has $1 Million or more in net assets, excluding his/her home. These investors are considered by the IRS to be sophisticated enough to make investment decisions. Non- qualified investors, or ones with less than $1 Million are not allowed by the IRS to invest in this type of group/sponsor partnership.
