Why Syndications Are Great Options For Investors?

Are you looking for a way to invest in real estate much more passively without all the hassle of managing a property and executing on the strategy? A real estate syndication might be the perfect investment option for you. Let's discuss what real estate syndications are and why they're a great choice for passive investors.


What is a Syndication?

In simple terms, a syndication is a group investment in a real estate property. It allows a group of investors to pool their money together to invest in a property (known as limited partners), while one or more real estate professionals manage the property and execute a strategy (known as general partners). Investors who join syndication get to enjoy the benefits of investing in real estate without having to be actively involved in the management of the property.

Conor Kelly: Plumber To Tiktok Star w/57 Closings In 1 Year

He talks about how he's able to attract a younger audience and how he's gotten to quality on his social media posts because of the large quantity of content first.

Renting Your Home for Film Shoots: The Little Known Lucrative Real Estate Niche With Big Profit Potential & Little Competition

What if you could rent your home for $300+/hr instead of $200/day? When you think about renting out your home, most people think of short-term rentals like Airbnb or VRBO. Have you ever considered renting out your home for film shoots? Film shoot rentals are a vastly untapped reservoir of opportunity that carries several unique benefits over both long term traditional real estate investing and AirBNB short-term rentals.

Josh Lawlor, the Founder of The Film Shoot Rental Roadmap, makes thousands of *tax free* dollars per day by renting his home for shoots, without the hassles that accompany other real estate methods. In fact, he made over $50,000 in his first 6 months!

Alison Alston: Buying The Real Estate Team You First Joined


Growing up in a family that did fix & flips and buy & hold properties, Alison Alston saw the benefits of real estate investing at an early age and how it can open up opportunities for generational wealth. However, she didn't pursue that path right out of college and ended up becoming very successful working in the Northeast in education and donor relations. Not wanting to travel all the time for her job, Alison moved to Charlotte, NC, and decided to get her real estate license.

She found an amazing team that fit her well. In fact, after 2 years as an agent on the team, an opportunity opened up for her to purchase that team. She now owns and operates Lodestone Real Estate, which was recently named #15 in the 2023 RealTrends rankings for the largest real estate teams in the county.

The 3 Key People You Need To Build Your Real Estate Investment Team

Passive vs Active Investing. What Is The Best Fit For You?

Oftentimes when people think about real estate investing, they are immediately concerned because they think that it means they'll have to respond to tenants phone calls at 2am staying that their toilet isn't working or they no longer have heat in their home, and you have to instantly drop everything and go help them out.

That's what I thought about too, until I got into it and realized that, depending on your personal preferences, there are many different layers that can insulate you from feeling like you're taking on a 2nd job managing the property or building your portfolio.

So it's helpful for you to ask the question "how active do I want to be in managing my real estate investments?" Some people like getting their hands into things and being involved in the day to day operations and the decision making. Some don't. The good news is you get to choose, and there are opportunities out there that fit the entire spectrum! Plus, it's not just in the management of the property, but...
