WHAT IS REAL ESTATE SYNDICATION AND HOW TO START ONE?

Article | March 3, 2020

Real estate syndication, also referred to as real estate crowdfunding, is an investment model where multiple real estate investors pool their capital for the common objective of financing a property investment. This way, real estate investors can invest in real estate projects that are considerably larger than they could have afforded as individual investors. Real estate syndications are usually led by a sponsor (or syndicate) who oversees the financing, acquisition, and management of investment properties on behalf of the investors. Therefore, the success of a real estate syndication will greatly depend on how competent the sponsor is. They earn active income through rental property management fees. They may also provide a small portion of the investment capital.

The 3 Tasks Every Real Estate Agent Should Be Outsourcing

Article | April 1, 2020

A clean, well-managed CRM can be your most valuable real estate tool. Too often, however, the database is so neglected and disorganized that it’s not living up to its full potential. Management of the system is an ongoing task, requiring a significant amount of an agent’s time. In fact, the folks at Hubspot found that nearly 30 percent of salespeople spent in excess of an hour a day on data entry. That’s an hour much better spent taking a former client to lunch or prospecting for new clients. When it comes to outsourcing real estate tasks, how does one go about finding help with data entry?

A California Perspective: Real Estate Principals Navigate the Current Lending Market

Article | April 23, 2020

Early in 2020, the market was extremely liquid for real estate investors and operating companies. Interest rates were relatively low, asset values were high, unemployment was low, and there was little inflation—overall, the market was performing well. And then the lending market began to change in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of defensive draws by companies to preserve their liquidity has been unprecedented, and the number of loans has drastically increased. Other forms of capital have slowed due to the inability to forecast risk. It’s a challenging time for real estate companies to stay abreast of market trends, as well as quantify the current and anticipated business impacts in this dynamic environment. With data constantly changing, how are real estate companies navigating this seemingly open-ended period of uncertainty? On April 17, EisnerAmper hosted a “Real Estate Principals Virtual Roundtable” with the Bay Area Council, Kennedy Wilson, and Wells Fargo. This online event provided a forum for industry leaders to share their experiences regarding the current lending market and to hear first-hand from their peers regarding how they’re navigating the current environment. Here are some key takeaways from that discussion.

8 Ways to Vet a CPA for Your Real Estate Investing Business

Article | February 10, 2020

Even though it may sound like a simple undertaking, vetting a good certified public accountant for your real estate investing business takes a lot of research and effort. The best certified public accountant (CPA) advice for investors usually comes from one who either invests themselves in real estate (RE) or has many clients who do. These types of CPAs may also hold certified financial planning (CFP) certifications. Although most CPAs are knowledgeable about taxes in general and can sometimes assist investors in getting the most tax advantages for their real estate investments, CPAs who invest in RE themselves do have a great advantage in firsthand knowledge of investing.
