A real estate syndication refers to the pooling of funds from multiple investors to collectively invest in a real estate project. In this arrangement, an experienced real estate sponsor, also known as the syndicator, identifies an investment opportunity such as purchasing a property or developing a project. They create a legal structure, often in the form of a limited liability company (LLC), to allow investors to contribute capital and become limited partners.

The syndicator is responsible for acquiring, managing, and potentially selling the property while the investors passively participate in the investment by providing capital. The syndicator typically receives compensation in the form of management fees and a share of the profits generated by the project. Investors benefit from the expertise of the syndicator, as they may lack the knowledge or resources to undertake such investments individually.

Real estate syndications are commonly used for various types of properties, including apartment buildings, commercial properties, industrial warehouses, or even large-scale development projects. It allows investors to diversify their real estate holdings, access larger-scale investments, and potentially achieve higher returns compared to investing individually.
