Intro: Investing in Commercial Real Estate with EquityMultiple

April 1, 2018

Welcome to EquityMultiple, and welcome to modern real estate investing. This introductory series is intended to equip you with the requisite knowledge to invest confidently. We will cover both basic information about EquityMultiple and our investment offerings as well as relevant commercial real estate investing concepts.

Studies have shown that portfolios substantially allocated to private commercial real estate will perform better over time*. Education is key, however, and investors who are getting started with diversifying from a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds are advised to attain at least baseline knowledge of real estate investing concepts. You may already possess CRE investing knowledge. If so, feel free to skip ahead to subsequent series on investment types or alternative asset theory. As always, please feel free to schedule time with our Investor Relations Team to discuss any of these concepts or any questions regarding EquityMultiple.

why commercial real estate investing

Real estate investing can take various forms and can be complex, particularly when investments are made across the capital stack and across commercial real estate property types. Investors can more effectively diversify into real estate if they have a working knowledge of core real estate investing concepts and an understanding of the modern real estate ecosystem.

Though we strive to provide as much information and transparency as possible, and do the heavy lifting of rigorous diligence on investments, there are concepts we believe every individual should know as they evaluate real estate investments.
