Interested in raising capital to invest in large commercial real estate properties? This course will teach you the entire process of syndicating capital to buy large real estate deals, whether you're buying a $200,000 duplex or a $50 million office building. If you're looking to raise money from investors to buy commercial real estate but the process seems complex and abstract, this course was designed to break down a real estate syndication step-by-step so that you can go confidently into your next deal. This course will teach you how to:

  • Confidently be able to syndicate capital to purchase commercial real estate properties, either on your own, with partners, or in your current company.

  • Diversify risk in your commercial real estate investments by minimizing your initial equity investment, but maximizing your overall profit potential.

  • You want to earn outsized profits on your deals in exchange for sweat equity, while putting little of your own capital up in deals and earning large multiples on your initial investment.

This course will teach you from start to finish how to raise capital to buy commercial real estate properties (multifamily, retail, office, and industrial buildings), no matter how large the deal. You will learn how to ensure your investment is sound and you have mitigated risks, how to structure your partnerships with investors, how to communicate with your investors once you close on the asset, and more. 

Ultimately, you will leave this course with a solid understanding of how to raise capital to buy apartment buildings, retail shopping centers, office buildings, and industrial properties with the opportunity to make double-digit annualized returns for your investors and yourself or your company.

Here's what some of our students have had to say:

★★★★★ "Clear and to the point. Love that he does not waste time. Lays it out simply and clearly."

★★★★★ "A great high-level introduction to syndicating real estate deals! I work for a small commercial real estate development/management company, and I'm just beginning to put these sorts of deals together myself, so it was nice to have such a solid run through of the process. I'm working through a few other RE financial modeling courses by Justin and I'm really impressed with his knowledge, pacing of course material, and the quality of his explanations. Having an in-depth understanding of these course topics and the ability to apply what I've learned has really helped me stand out at work."

★★★★★ "This is an excellent overview of real estate syndication deals and the transaction elements of a typical commercial real estate acquisition. The material is presented in a logical and easy-to-follow manner from the start to finish of the acquisition deal cycle. The material in this course could serve as a comprehensive checklist for the proper execution of commercial real estate transactions. This course exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone interested in understanding how real estate syndication works or learning the commercial real estate transaction process."

Looking forward to seeing you in the course!
