How do I get started?
To get started, register and create a password. Then you will be granted access to the Site in order to review investment opportunities.
 

Can anyone invest?
No. Under the law as it stands today, we can only allow “accredited investors” to participate.
 

What is an accredited investor?
An accredited investor, in the context of a natural person, includes anyone who:

  • Earned income that exceeded $200,000 ($300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year. OR
  • Has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person's primary residence)

Please refer to the SEC Investor Bulletin for more information.

 

What if I’m not an accredited investor?
You can still sign up and see projects, you just can’t invest yet.
 

What kinds of projects will I see on your site?
You will see institutional quality investment opportunities across the commercial real estate space. These will include ground up development, multifamily, office, medical office and industrial opportunities that meet a broad range of investment objectives.

 

How do you select projects?
Our acquisition professionals adhere to a rigorous and time tested seven-step investment process to ensure that every acquisition meets our exacting standards. We have established deep industry relationships which gives us access to many opportunities that are not available to other sponsors and have the ability to act quickly when they arise.

 

Why should I consider an investment in real estate?

The benefits of investing in private real estate include:

  • Low correlation to publicly traded stocks and bonds
  • Hedge against possible onset of inflation
  • Multiple sources of investment return

 

How much should I invest?

In this era of low returns, many are rethinking traditional asset allocation models. Now that there is easier access to private real estate opportunities, a 10-20% allocation to the space is the recommendation of many investment professionals. Everyone's situation is unique and the suitability of each investment should be the subject of a conversation with an investment advisor.


Will I own actual real estate if I invest?
You won’t own real estate directly in your own name, the way you own your home. Instead, you’ll own an interest in an LLC by purchasing restricted securities.  It is important to understand that such securities have very limited liquidity.  Our investors typically hold these securities until there is a liquidity event.  In limited cases you maybe able to resell your interests in a private transaction subject to deal specific restrictions and restrictions under the Securities Act of 1933.

 

Can I invest through my IRA?

Yes, you can usually purchase units in Block Funds offerings with your self-directed IRA funds. If your current custodian can accommodate this type of alternative investment, they will review the offering materials to determine if the asset is administratively feasible, and there will be some additional forms to complete. If your current IRA custodian does not hold alternative assets, there are several other custodians we work with to accomplish this type of investment.

 

 

Are there fees to join?
No, it’s absolutely free.

 

Where can I learn more about specific opportunities?

When you click on an offering, you will have access to disclosure materials and related documents which describe the offering and its attendant risks in great detail.  We are always available to answer questions and address concerns either through our message system, email or a phone call.
 

Can I invest in pools of real estate assets, rather than one at a time?
Not as of now.  We assess the needs of our investors in an ongoing process to determine how to structure opportunities going forward.
 

Can I track the performance of my investments?
Yes, we give you a tool – we call it our Dashboard – to keep track of all the investments you make at our site.
