Real estate syndication Sponsors require a minimum investment, also called the “original investment.” This minimum investment may vary depending on the size of the project. For example, the larger the project the more money required to invest. Our syndications are set at $50K minimum and increase in increments of $5K. In terms of maximum investment, Sponsors rarely allow a single investor to invest more than 19% of the total equity. Reason being, if a passive investor invests more than 19%, they would then have to be underwritten by the lender.
