  • Advantages of Investing in Real Estate

  • Disadvantages of Investing in Real Estate

    • Liquidity: Since there are other investors involved in the deal, you do not control the duration/term of your investment. Usual investment term of a commercial real estate project is 5 to 10 years. You usually get your money back when the property is eventually sold. If you need to exit before that, you need to have a clause included in the agreement that can allow someone else to buy your share. 
    • As with any investments, a commercial Real Estate Syndication investment is subject to be influenced by market fluctuations. You can try to minimize the risks by using smart investment strategies and market knowledge. 
    • You will not have much control over the day-to-day operations of the property. Majority of the day-to-day decisions will be taken by the real estate sponsor.

Difference of opinions or deadlocks are usually resolved by a voting system agreed upon at the time of initial investment.
