    • How does the actual investment process work?
    • How do you determine whether or not to proceed with an offering for a Property?

      We conduct a thorough due diligence on each Property we consider listing on the Site and if we discover anything during the diligence process that causes us to believe an investment in the Property would not be prudent, we will not list it on our Site. While we try to eliminate any potential problems during our diligence process, there could be cases where we discover an error in the information provided to us by a Seller or a problem arises during the pre-closing process (such as a problem with the title) in which case we would not close on the Property.

      Often, we will also gauge interest with our investors before listing a Property. Typically, if a property has passed due diligence and fits our parameters, we would expect to list the offering for 30-90 days on the site. If the offering does not become fully subscribed, we will remove it from the site and will not close on the purchase of the Property.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

These FAQs contain certain forward-looking statements that are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are generally identifiable by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “potential,” “intend,” “expect,” “outlook,” “seek,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “approximately,” “believe,” “could,” “project,” “predict,” or other similar words or expressions, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions, discuss future expectations, describe future plans and strategies, or state other forward-looking information.

The forward-looking statements contained in these FAQs are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments that are difficult to predict. We cannot guarantee future performance, or that future developments affecting us will be as currently anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements and should not make an investment decision based solely on these forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.
