A real estate syndicate buys, operates and sells real estate investments.
Typical legal entities for a real estate syndicate are corporations, limited liability companies and general or limited partnerships.In its simplest form, a real estate syndicate is simply the pooling of money from multiple investors and organizing these funds as a whole into real estate projects. The investment money contributed is used as an equity investment and together with a commercial loan secured by the real estate and guaranteed by a high net worth individual or a entity, fund the bulk of the cost for purchase or development of the project. Investing in a real estate syndicate is essentially joining together with others to invest in commercial real estate.
