What is a real estate syndication?

Syndication is a way for a group of real estate investors to pool their financial resources and business expertise. It allows them to purchase much larger multifamily apartment buildings than they would be able to acquire and manage on their own, providing higher returns. They then share in the financial success of this investment.

Said another way, we buy apartment buildings together. You passively invest a minimum of $50K with other fellow investors and our team manages the business plan, so you don’t have to worry about the plumbing. You then enjoy the rental income that our residents pay monthly, as well the profits when the building is sold a few years down the line.

How much money can I make passively investing in real estate syndications?

While returns vary from one deal to the next, most current syndications have targeted annualized return of 13-17%. All investments present risks, and past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Syndication sounds too good to be true. Is there a catch?

No. While syndications as an investment vehicle are fairly new to traditional investors, they are a proven way for a group of investors to acquire large-scale real estate assets, like multifamily apartment buildings. These have been proven as a great asset for wealth creation for generations. While there are risks associated with any investment, Akras invests in these assets because of the unique level of safety paired with the attractive blend of cash flow and total return. It’s important to work with a team that has a high degree of fiduciary responsibility and an ethos that you align with.

What happens to my investment in a downturn?

Our goal at Akras Capital is to preserve your capital in a recession, which starts with how we conservatively underwrite our investments from the beginning. While no investment is recession-proof, there are many ways your real estate investment is resilient against a typical downturn: 1) People always need a place to live, and demand for rentals (versus buying) increases during recessions 2) We secure long term financing, ensuring we are not forced to sell during a downturn which allows us to “ride it out”3) Multifamily apartments continue to generate rental revenue, even during a recession. The biggest risk is that the project, and the sale at the exit, are delayed.

Does Akras invest in its own deals?

Yes, as a show of support to our investments and modeling, and because we enjoy the passive income our investments create as well, we always passively invest alongside our investors in our deals.

Where can I find investment capital?

Often, new investors don’t think to look beyond their personal savings accounts for capital to invest. A little creative exploration can reveal great sources of capital that you might not have realized are available. Besides personal savings, we like to look at our home equity and our IRAs. In particular, IRAs from a former employer can be converted into a “Self-Directed IRA” (SDIRA).

What is an "Accredited" investor, and do I need to be one to invest?

An “Accredited Investor” is a person who meets requirements regarding income and net worth, based on Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations. This was developed to safeguard investors and provide them with protection.

To be an accredited investor, you need to meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Have an annual income of $200,000, or $300,000 for joint income (in your family), for each of the last two years, with expectations of earning the same or higher income this year.
  • Have a net worth exceeding $1 million, not including the value of your primary home

Many of our investments are only available to accredited investors. That said, some may be available to non-accredited investors as well. In order to invest in one of these deals, you must become a “sophisticated” investor, which means you have learned about the risks of investing and have established a relationship with Akras Capital.

If you are in the process of filling out the Investor Application, and don’t know whether you are accredited or sophisticated, simply select the “I’m Not Sure” option from the drop down answers, and we can explore the answer to this question together when we speak!
