Benefits of Investing Through CityVest
Posted by Alan Donenfeld
CityVest makes it easy for accredited investors to participate in professional real estate offerings across the United States. We provide insider access to curated investments that were previously limited to a select few investors. Our team of experienced real estate professionals and advisors spend countless hours sourcing and vetting real estate opportunities so that you can achieve higher rates of return on your money. Here are some of the benefits of investing through CityVest.
Earn Returns of 10 to 25%
The CityVest real estate investment marketplace is the culmination of our team members’ and advisors’ hundreds of years of experience in real estate investing, finance, accounting and internet technologies. CityVest has succeeded in providing individual investors with the smartest and easiest platform to pool their investment capital to access institutional quality real estate deals that normally are not available to individual investors. You benefit through professional investment structures, which target returns for our investors in a range from 10% to 25% - often with a preferred return.
Institutional Quality Deals
CityVest has established a manageement team and an Investment Advisory Committee with over 300 years of experience in real estate, investment and finance.. Our team and advisors seek out professional real estate sponsors to find hundreds of possible commercial real estate investment opportunities. CityVest then goes through a detailed analysis of each investments through our underwriting and due diligence process. We believe that that our investments are amongst the best deals available.
Many real estate crowd investing platforms earn a fee for raising capital for real estate sponsors, and therefore they’re interested in putting as many deals as possible through their site. CityVest is different. We are highly selective in the real estate sponsors that we choose and the deals that we will place on our website. In many transactions the CityVest team, its advisors and sponsors invest alongside you, so that we have "skin in the game". Therefore, your best interest is in our best interest.
CityVest will handle all the accounting and administration of your investment, while you monitor the returns. Similar to how properties are traditionally managed, you will receive regular reports from the property manager regarding financial performance, vacancies, marketing strategies, and large capital expenses. In addition, all investors will have access to their own personal investor dashboard where they can track how much has been invested, which transactions are active, and how much investors have earned on the investment thus far.
Ability to Own Real Estate without a Large Capital Commitment
CityVest lowers the barrier to real estate investing by allowing investors to participate with considerably smaller investment amounts than is typically required for a commercial real estate investment. Rather than spending $100,000 to $1,000,000 on a single investment and taking on the structuring and financing responsibilities, you can now simply buy shares through Cityvest for as little as $10,000. With CityVest, you can now selectively diversify your real estate investments and reduce your overall exposure to any one property.
Monthly Cash Flow and Potential for Capital Gains
CityVest actively seeks properties that yield a quarterly or annual cash flow, which will be distributed directly to you. In addition, your property may also increase in value over time and you will receive capital gains from your investment when the property is eventually liquidated.
Since real estate investments typically generate cash flow income, while common stock does not, real estate valuations tend to be less volatile and less sensitive to market risk factors. Further, longer rental lease terms help reduce the risk of economic fluctuations on rental income. As such, real estate should be included in an investment portfolio for diversification and balanced risk. Moreover, CityVest allows investors additional diversification benefits through exposure to a broad range of geographies, property types, and tenants.
