Real estate syndication (also called “property syndication”) is broad term, however simply stated it is when multiple investors pool their capital to increase their buying power to buy or build property that they would otherwise be unable to afford on their own. In a syndication deal, the investors are passive partners. The active partner in a syndication deal is the Sponsor (also called a “General Partner”). The role of the Sponsor is to scout and secure the property, initiate the business plan, and manage the investment.
