According to the SEC, an accredited investor includes anyone who:
1) earned income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, OR
2) has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence).

Will all investments be limited to accredited investors?
Absolutely not. Our mission is to provide the opportunity for everyone to participate in our investments. We are hoping to have a new offering available to accredited AND non-accredited investors some time in the near future. Stay tuned!
What returns can I expect on my investment?
Returns will vary for each investment, but we always target at least double digit returns for our offerings. To learn more about our projected returns for each offering, view our investments and select the individual offering you are interested in.
When do I get paid as an investor?
Distributions will be paid out to investors on a quarterly basis. Since investors are equity owners in the properties we acquire, they will also share in a percentage of the profits, if any, when a property is sold or refinanced. This percentage will be proportionate to the amount of capital that investor has invested in that specific fund.
How does RealCap make money?
We charge an upfront fee of 1% to cover marketing expenses, legal fees, closing costs, and other expenses incurred, and a 1% annual management fee. We also receive a 20% equity share in the ownership of our acquired properties, which means we have a shared interest with our investors for the properties to do well. This keeps us motivated to make sure that our investments are performing well and providing excellent returns for our investors.
