Real Estate Investment Clubs Edit

Clubs of this type are most commonly publicized as a real estate investment group or company, rather than a club. The legal distinction according to the SEC is having 100 members or less. Whereas, a real estate investment group would normally have more than 100 investors. These clubs normally buy real estate or notes (loans originated by a licensed third party) to benefit from: cash flow, appreciation of assets, instant equity, tax benefits from deductions or qualified dividends, group buying power, monthly or daily compounding, higher liquidity and

diversification of risk. Real estate transactions are limited to 35 participants to meet the legal requirements of many states for being closely held, and can be legally organized as a sole proprietorship transferring assets to a group living trust, limited liability company, limited liability partnership, general partnership or C corporation.

Just about anyone can join a real estate investment club as long as they're able to invest their own money. There are clubs for retired men and women, for college students, and for wealthy businessmen. While investing clubs dedicated solely to real estate aren’t as common as those that invest in stocks, they do offer opportunities for just about anyone. Generally speaking, real estate investment clubs are made up of five to 10 people with similar investment goals, although there are no legal limits or In most cases, members pool their money and make investment decisions together. Investment clubs can be informal groups, but they're often organized as partnerships. Some clubs have their own stated objectives, such as

value investing or investing for income. In the case of real estate investment groups, members are focused solely on investing in real estate. Group members work together to form a legal entity, ensuring that each member of the group is considered a joint owner. Then, when the group decides to buy and sell real estate, the group’s name goes on the deed. Most real estate investing clubs have written operating rules and, in most cases, they'll elect officers. They'll also assign specific jobs to members, such as sales execution, record keeping, taxes, property maintenance, and member communications. In days gone by, members of investment groups would meet regularly to discuss and vote on properties. Nowadays, these decisions

are more often made via email or online chat. The Internet has also made it easier to find real estate clubs in your area. Investment club members will often be required to pay a membership fee to join, and they might pay an additional set fee on a monthly or annual ongoing

The collective nature of investment clubs also means there’s a lack of flexibility for individual members. For example, a group member would need the support of other group members or have another member buy her out if she finds herself in need of funds and wants to cash in some of her equity. Another downside to investing as a group is that feelings can get in the way of good decisions. The group might decide against selling a property to avoid hurting

the feelings of another who had argued for holding onto it. Many clubs ask for high membership fees, which could cut into your investment
