There are Two Types of Passive Investors in Multifamily Real Estate Syndication:

1). Preferred Equity Investors – These investors are in the first position for returns and have higher returns than common equity investors. If the project goes south, they are the first to get their money back after the debt is paid.

2). Common Equity Investors – these investors are in the second position for returns and have lower returns than Preferred equity investors. If the project goes south, they will share the remaining proceeds, if any, after the preferred equity holders are made whole.

The average minimum investment for passive investors is usually $50,000 but typically not exceeding 20% of the required equity.

If you're interested in becoming a passive real estate investor, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

a). Do your due diligence on the sponsor. Make sure you trust and believe in their ability to execute the business plan.

b). Read the private placement Memorandum (PPM) carefully. This document outlines all the details of the investment and should answer any questions you have about the deal.

c). Make sure you understand the risks involved. Just like with any investment, there is risk involved in real estate syndications. But the rewards can be great if you do your homework and invest in a quality project with a good sponsor.
