Investing in Real Estate Private Equity is your practical guide to investing in real estate through private offerings with established companies. The passive investment strategies for wealth building and income generation described in this book have traditionally been used by some of the world’s most sophisticated institutional investors, but are now available to nearly everyone thanks to recent regulatory changes. This handbook will guide you through the process of building your own diversified real estate portfolio by identifying and making investments with established and experienced private real estate operators. This is NOT another get-rich-quick real estate fix & flip scheme. You will NOT be encouraged to sign up for conferences or clubs to learn a no-money-down investment strategy. This IS a practical guide meant to help you avoid common mistakes and navigate more skillfully through an often byzantine industry. You will learn: – What a private real estate investment is; the mechanics of syndicates, funds, and crowdfunding – Fundamentals of basic real estate evaluation – How to evaluate operators and investments – Fees, incentives, and other loads – Common terms and structures – Strategies to evaluate and manage risk – How to create and execute a personalized investment strategy Most people underestimate the time requirements, complexity, risk, and general brain damage involved with buying real estate directly. Thankfully, private real estate investments provide most of the same benefits as direct ownership, while taking advantage of established real estate companies’ years of experience, market knowledge, industry reputation, negotiating leverage, and expertise. Even better, they allow investors to diversify their investment allocation across a range of real estate product types (multifamily, retail, office, self-storage, etc.) and throughout the capital stack (equity, debt, mezzanine, and preferred equity), all while working with specialists in each strategy. Written by an experienced practitioner with over $1 billion in transactional experience, this book challenges conventional wisdom and provides an inside look into how the industry actually works. Using the practical tips and strategies found here, you can build your own unique real estate portfolio, manage risk, avoid common mistakes, hopefully make money, and perhaps even have some fun along the way.
