A case study on 6104 Walnut Hills Small Group Investment / Syndication
This was a small group investment also known as a syndication that I completed in 2004/2005. It was a duplex needed major repairs so I put together a small group to participate with me in the completion of the purchase, rehab and ultimate selling of the property. Despite several surprises we ultimately sold the property and made a tidy profit for both the money investors and for myself.
Please see the attached PDF’s the first of which was my prospectus to the Investors some of whom are members in the REICA group and I hope they felt good about the returns they received ((at least I think that they did)) Maybe one of them will come out and testify about this investment opportunity for the good of the group. (You know who you are!))
The final outcome came to a 46% return on investment for the money investors and a pretty good return for me as well! Check out my budget and how the money was spent to see some of the details of what it should look like when you get started in one of these rehab/syndication deals.
To summarize this one I bought it for 33K and got my money partners to put up 40K and went to the bank and got another 40K to rehab it and we sold it for 140K. We had some budget overruns (small ones) and almost got sued over it ((that’s another story)), but it turned out great for everyone involved!
This was the last of my small group investments / syndications! Now I will only do bigger syndications for bigger properties but it was a great stepping stone in my learning and growth as an investor. If you want to know why I am against small group investments please send me a private email or post it to the REICA group and I will respond to you.
I hope that this inspires some of you to go out and begin to put together small groups to help you further your investment goals.
