How To Vet the General Partners

You’re investing in real estate-but is your sponsor the real deal?

The most important step is vetting the real estate sponsor. By performing due diligence and vetting the sponsor, you can be sure that your investment is in good hands.

Sponsors are not all created equal-some are more experienced and qualified than others. If you do your homework up front, you can avoid potential problems down the road. You don’t want to be the one who puts their hard-earned money at risk and loses it all in a real estate investment.

Here are a few tips to help you vet the lead sponsors:

First, ask for references from past investors. If the sponsor can’t provide any, that’s not a good sign. You can also do a background check on them.

Next, check out their track record. How long have they been doing syndication? How many properties do they currently manage? Have they sold any of their properties and what were the results for passive investors?

Finally, take a look at their business model. Are they focused on completely renovating all the units or taking a property from low occupancy to high occupancy? Or do they achieve returns using more simple value-add techniques?

By following these tips, you’ll be able to feel confident that you’re working with a qualified and trustworthy sponsor.

The vetting process of a real estate sponsor is critical to your success as an investor. It is normal to have questions, and we are prepared to answer them. Follow us here.
