We promise “We’re not the Mafia!”

In this episode we talk about the often misunderstood topic of real estate syndication. We talk about how to invest in other peoples deals and how ordinary investors can own larger apartment complexes and other large commercial projects. We talk about the different ways to invest in other peoples deals, through lending, partnerships and limited or passive partnerships. We dig deeper in to limited partnerships and we talk about how they work and what you need to look for if you are considering investing in a syndication or limited partnership. We also cover the advantages and disadvantages of doing so including.

ii. Diversification

iii. Much more passive than most real estate investing—mail box money

iv. Often highly tax favorable—passive losses

v. Solid returns


i. Less control

ii. Lack of Liquidity

Episode 6: Is it really possible to invest passively in Real Estate?

How passive are your real estate investments? Are they really passive? Is it even possible to invest passively in real estate? These are just a few of the questions we answer. In this video we introduce the passivity scale a measure of how passive a particular investment actually is. Recognizing that it is the goal of most investors to get “Mailbox” money we talk in length about the feasibility of such a plan.

In episode 6 of the old fashioned real estate show we discuss those very issues.  Super happy with how this episode turned out.
