I will outline the seven elements that make up an investment that is successful in apartment syndicating.

1. Multi-Family Commercial

Naturally, MF distribution does not encompass single-family houses. The less apparent fact is that both residential multi-family homes and smaller units (two between four and 70 units respectively) provide fewer benefits when compared to MF properties that are typically classified as having 70plus units. In any case you should focus your efforts on commercial MF properties to benefit from some of the benefits. These benefits include the notions that

● They’re large enough to allow you to employ an on-site property manager

● They’re typically financed with an recourse loan, which means that the bank is not able to seek the owner’s personal assets when they fail to pay

● And are typically evaluated in terms of income (NOI/CAP) rather than market comparable.

2. A Huge and Expanding Market

It is believed that a market could determine the success or failure of an Investment Property deal for commercial properties; a weak market is difficult to overcome with other methods, while the best market can make up for many errors. Some of the reasons why an extensive market is better are that

● The CAP rates in big markets tend to be more stable.

● There is also a greater number of sellers and buyer pool

A growing market can offer the best chance of

● Above the average of population growth and jobs growth (increased wages and job growth, as well as low unemployment)

● And significant and significant.

3. An Experienced Property Administrator (PM)

This is the team of professionals that the owner/asset manager trusts with managing the day-to-day activities for the building. Responsibilities include overseeing renovations/maintenance, screening tenants and collecting rents, managing amenities, along with hundreds if not thousands of other responsibilities. As you can imagine PMs also can determine the success or failure of a contract. Some of the most important questions to be asked to evaluate a PM’s performance are:

● How many units are you able to manage in all?

● How many units can your company manage on this particular market? Submarket?

● Do you have a property or an investment that is in the market?

4. A Reliable Sponsor

The Sponsor is also called “The Operator”, the Promoter and the General Partner. The individual or group of persons is accountable for locating an underwriter, purchasing an asset, and then managing it. You’ll need to know certain things about the Sponsor you’re thinking of working with, such as but not limited to:

● What are their experiences in real estate?

● What are their thoughts on the SEC regulations that govern the syndication of funds? What is the legal team they employ to ensure these rules are followed?

● What are the opinions of past investors about them, both personally and professionally?

● Google search for them and see if you discover any negatives?

5. An Expert Asset Manager

As a way of ensuring that you have a reliable Sponsor, you’ll also require an experienced asset manager. With the majority of syndicators, these two have the exact same. The most common responsibilities of this group include the following with others: collaboration with the property management team in identifying opportunities to increase NOI controlling the accounting and financial aspects of the property, helping with an analysis of tax segregation to speed up depreciation, as well as deciding about a exit strategy. To understand the breadth of their experience in asset management

● look back at some of their earlier deals,

● You can ask them about their work background prior to becoming syndicators (are they related?),

● And lastly, ask your sponsor to ask as many questions regarding the asset manager as you can so that you feel at ease with their capabilities.

Any trustworthy Sponsor will be able to answer any question you may have and will take the time or effort needed to ensure your security and ensure that a partnership with them is a good choice for you.

6. Stabilized Properties

In simple terms an esoteric sense, a stabilized home is one that has regular occupancy and a demand for rents that typically reflect the current market conditions and property’s state. Below are some of the most compelling reasons to consider properties that have stabilized status:

● It will be much easier to obtain traditional loans.

● The possibility of leasing might prove more difficult than originally thought.

● Safety. In a nutshell an asset that is stabilized is one that makes profits, but still can be improved. Even if improvements don’t generate the expected rent, the property can still earn a profit according to its current performance.

7. Opportunities to Add Value

Simply put, value-add possibilities are opportunities that boost NOI (through reduced expenses, an increase in income, or possibly some combination of both) and, consequently, boost the value of an asset. There are many methods to accomplish this, and some of them are improvements to improve rents, better facilities, “other income” such as pet and trash service fees, the implementation of the RUBS system, which reduces the cost of managing onsite by utilizing economics of scale, etc. Things to take into consideration when looking at value-add ideas include:

● Have the improvements proposed been evaluated on this property, or similar properties in the market?

● What are the plans for improvements? Can the sponsor renovate only a few units at one time to keep a steady occupancy rate?

A crucial point here is not to misinterpret deferred maintenance with value-added opportunities. Roofs that are damaged, AC units that are in need of repair, parking spaces that are neglected etc. could require a substantial amount of cash up front and offer little or any return on investment.
