The answer comes with syndication. Syndication expands the opportunity to make larger deals by leveraging capital from a group of investors.
For singlefamily and small, residential multifamily, the first syndication deal can seem like a large step. There are a lot of moving pieces to keep track of in a syndicated deal that may seem complex to investors used to self-financing.
Reed Goossens knows the power in syndication.
A native Australian, Reed moved to the U.S. after educating himself in real estate investing. As a foreign investor, Reed saw the potential for earning cash-flow in U.S. real estate markets and set about acquiring properties.
Initially investing in small duplexes in tertiary markets outside of New York City, Reed had been using his own capital to finance deals.
He realized the need to scale his real estate investment goals and set about transitioning from residential multifamily to commercial multifamily through syndication.
Reed founded RSN Property Group and has been investing in commercial multifamily properties through syndication since 2011.
In addition to expanding his asset portfolio and investor base, Reed also hosts a podcast to educate foreign investors in the U.S. real estate market
