Yes. Our goal at Realized is to give you the tools, knowledge, access, and personalized service you need to manage your real estate wealth like you would the rest of your portfolio. Here’s how it works:
Currently, only accredited investors are eligible to invest. “Accredited Investor” is the term used by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), under Rule 501 of Regulation D. To qualify as accredited, an investor must accomplish at least one of the following:
An individual who had an income in excess of $200,000 or joint income with spouse in excess of $300,000 in each of the two most recent years, and; has a reasonable expectation of reaching the same income level in the current year; OR an individual, or joint net worth together with their spouse that exceeds $1,000,000 excluding their primary residence.
A bank, insurance company, registered investment company, business development company, or small business investment company.
A general partner, executive officer, director, or a related combination thereof for the issuer of a security being offered.
A business or entity in which all the equity owners are accredited investors.
An employee benefit plan, a trust, charitable organization, partnership, or company with total assets in excess of $5 million.
Yes, absolutely; we’re glad you’ve found Realized. Even if you are not investing with 1031 proceeds, Replacement Property Interest investments give you the option to complete a future 1031 tax-deferred exchange, upon the sale of the property. This is not the case for real estate co-ownership through LLCs, partnerships, corporations, or most other entities.
Before a Replacement Property Interest Offering is listed on our marketplace, it must pass the “people, performance, and property” tests.
Who are the people and the company behind the offering?
We review their experience as real estate owner/operators, as well as their reputation and track record as shepherds of investors’ capital. We look for owner/operators with deep practical experience, commensurate with the property being offered, as well as their knowledge of the city and submarket where the property is located.
If the “people” portion meets our criteria, we move to the “performance” test. Some of the questions we ask include:
Are the financial projections reasonable and well supported?
What is the loan-to-value of the mortgage? Does it appear that the property will be able to pay investors their anticipated periodic equity payments over the expected holding period of the property?
Assuming a potential offering passes the first two tests, we drill down to the “property” test.
How is the property anticipated to be affected in four key categories over the expected holding period of the property?
