Group Real Estate Investments: Co-Investing Club

Buying and managing investment properties takes a lot of work and money. If you invest by yourself, that is.

So we decided to go off the beaten path: not only do we invest passively in real estate syndications, we do so as a group. Every month, our Co-Investing Club vets a real estate syndication deal together on a video call. We bring the syndicator on the call to answer questions, and whoever wants to invest in that month’s deal can do so with as little as $5K.

Compare that to the $50-100K needed to invest in real estate syndications by yourself, or to cough up as a down payment on a rental property.

All deals allow non-accredited investors. All deals are optional. And all deals target 15-30%+ annual returns.

We know you’re not familiar with it, because we don’t know anyone else doing this. So read up on how group real estate investments work, and don’t by shy with your questions!

Compare Real Estate Crowdfunding Platforms

Not ready to invest in real estate syndications or rental properties yet? No sweat — start with $10 in a real estate crowdfunding investment.

But not all real estate crowdfunding platforms are created equal. Some we love and invest our personal money in. Others… not so much. 

To demystify the world of real estate crowdfunding, we compiled a list of the 17 most popular real estate crowdfunding platforms, along with “At a Glance” highlights to help you decide which ones are a good fit for you. They include short-term real estate investments like Concreit and long-term investments like Arrived. Real estate equity investments (Fundrise) and secured debt investments (Groundfloor). Fractional ownership in individual properties (Lofty) and pooled funds (Streitwise). And every combination in between.

Don’t be intimidated. We’ll even tell you which ones we invest in personally. And if you have questions, we’re an email away. 

Compare Loans for Investment Properties

We’ve vetted rental property lenders for you.

From interest rates to loan-to-value ratios (LTV), we’ve put together several comparison charts for investment property loans.

Rental property loans are inherently different from short-term fix-and flip loans, so we broke them down into two separate charts for easy loan comparisons.

And if you’re cash-strapped, read up on 17 Clever Ways to Come Up with a Down Payment for a Rental Property.

Never worry again about how you’ll finance your next investment property!

Deni Supplee and G. Brian Davis love real estate, passive income, lifestyle design, and teaching.

So we combined all those those together to create SparkRental.

Some people just want the high returns and tax benefits of real estate investments, but don’t want the headaches of becoming a landlord. For them, we created our Co-Investing Club and FIRE from Real Estate program to help them invest passively in real estate syndications.

In fact, Brian’s now one of those passive investors, as he spends most of the year traveling overseas with his wife Katie and daughter Millie.

Other investors want the control of owning individual properties directly. For them, we created free landlord software, free calculators (such as a free rental income calculator and free depreciation calculator), and interactive maps such as the best cities for rentals and real estate heat maps

With enough passive income from real estate, you reach financial independence. You can live off your rents and distributions. And then your day job becomes optional, so you can go save the world or whatever else you’d do if you weren’t chained to a job.
