What Is Real Estate Syndication? How It Works, Benefits & Drawbacks

Owning real estate for investment purposes can be a great path to wealth. Depending on the property, it can generate predictable cash flow, capital gains and provide tax benefits.

Besides being lucrative, real estate investing can be a hedge against inflation and an excellent way to diversify your investment portfolio.

There are several ways to invest in realty, from purchasing Real Estate Investment Trusts, rental single-family or multi-family properties, flipping houses, building an investment property, or joining a real estate syndication.

What is Real Estate Syndication?

The structure of real estate syndication consists of two groups: syndicators and investors.

Syndicators are sponsors of the real estate syndication, organized as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or partnership.
