Real estate syndication is when a group of people pool their money together to purchase real estate assets.
Typically, there is the real estate syndicator (or sponsor). This person or group identifies the properties to acquire, presents them to the investors, and collects the capital needed to close on the properties.
In contrast, investors contribute capital in exchange for an ownership stake in the property or properties. The investors do not participate in the day-to-day operations of the assets and their financial downside is limited to the amount of money that they invest.
If you’re interested in financial independence, then you’ve got to be acquiring passive flows of income as well as active flows of income.
With that said, if you want to reap the benefits of owning real estate without the headaches or hassles of direct ownership, here is a master list of real estate syndicators who offer passive investment opportunities.
