Finding investors to invest in your apartment syndication deals can often be easier than keeping those investors for future deals. In our experience, private investors are not most concerned with their ROI, it is a concern obviously, but not as high as three other concerns. They want to know that their money is in good hands, frequent updates, and is the process hassle free? Theo will cover those three things in more depth today.
