FAQ

How do I get started investing?

Many deals require you to be an accredited investor, but there are also deals that accept non-accredited investors as well. If you are interested in investing, simply sign-up with the Physician Investors Circle to be updated on the latest real estate investment opportunities.

Am I an accredited investor?

An accredited investor, as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), must satisfy at least one of the following:

  • Have an annual income of $200,000, or $300,000 for joint income, for each of the last two years, with expectations of earning the same or higher income this year;

  • Have a net worth exceeding $1 million, not counting your primary home

A certification is not required to meet the definition of an accredited investor.

How do I know whom to invest with?

No matter who you invest with or what you invest in, we believe in the importance of educating yourself and understanding your personal investment philosophy, or individual investment needs. The investment should align with your individual investment needs and be a methodical part of your investment plan.

We take the time to build a relationship with you to better understand what your individual investment needs are. We know your time is a valuable asset and we help you by leveraging our experience and relationships in order to help find the investment opportunities that are most suitable for you.

How much money do I need to invest?

The typical minimum investment amount is $50,000, though each syndication is unique. Typical minimum investment amounts range from $25,000 - $100,000. Investors may invest as an individual with a checking or savings account, or with an entity such as a LLC, trust, or Self-directed IRA account.

What is a real estate syndication?

A syndication is simply a way for people to pool their resources together. A real estate syndication allows for individuals or groups to pool their financial and intellectual resources together to purchase properties much bigger than they could afford or manage on their own.

Do I need to be a physician to invest with The Real Estate Physician?

You do NOT need to be a physician to invest with The Real Estate Physician. Sign-up with our Physician Investors Circle to learn more.
