FAQ

[qode_accordion style=”toggle”][qode_accordion_tab title=”WHAT TYPE OF ACCOUNTS CAN I INVEST THROUGH?”]

We currently support personal investment accounts, joint accounts, and certain entity accounts (Trusts, Limited Liability Companies, Limited Partnerships, C Corporations, and S Corporations). For more information on IRA accounts, see below.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”CAN I INVEST THROUGH MY IRA?”]

Yes, you can invest through your IRA. If you currently have a self-directed IRA, please check with your current custodian to ensure that they will allow you to place your investment with Titanium Capital.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”WHAT IS A K-1?”]

As a partner in the LLC that purchases the properties, you will receive a K-1. A K-1 is a tax form used by partnerships to provide investors with detailed information on their share of a partnership’s taxable income. Partnerships are generally not subject to federal or state income tax, but instead issue a K-1 to each investor to report his or her share of the partnership’s income, gains, losses, deductions and credits. The K-1s are provided to investors on an annual basis so that each investor can include K-1 amounts on his or her tax return.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”AM I AN ACCREDITED INVESTOR?”]

An accredited investor, in the context of a natural person, includes anyone who:

  • 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
  • has a net worth over $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence).

 

On the income test, the person must satisfy the thresholds for the three years consistently either alone or with a spouse, and cannot, for example, satisfy one year based on individual income and the next two years based on joint income with a spouse. The only exception is if a person is married within this period, in which case the person may satisfy the threshold on the basis of joint income for the years during which the person was married and on the basis of individual income for the other years.

 

In addition, entities such as banks, partnerships, corporations, nonprofits and trusts may be accredited investors. Of the entities that would be considered accredited investors and depending on your circumstances, the following may be relevant to you:

  • any trust, with total assets in excess of $5 million, not formed to specifically purchase the subject securities, whose purchase is directed by a sophisticated person, or
  • any entity in which all of the equity owners are accredited investors.

 

In this context, a sophisticated person means the person must have, or the company or private fund offering the securities reasonably believes that this person has, sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters to evaluate the merits and risks of the prospective investment.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”DO I HAVE TO BE AN ACCREDITED INVESTOR TO INVEST?”]

No. We currently have investment opportunities that are open to accredited and non-accredited investors. Please register here to view our current offerings.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”HOW FREQUENTLY ARE DISTRIBUTIONS MADE?”]

Distributions are planned quarterly.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE FUNDS USED FOR?”]

Investor funds are used for the total acquisition cost of the property. This includes but is not limited to the actual purchase price of the property, acquisition fees, legal and transaction costs, capital projects, and reserves.

[/qode_accordion_tab][qode_accordion_tab title=”CAN I VISIT THE PROPERTY?”]

Yes. Investors are allowed to visit the property before investing and during the life of the project.

KEY TERMS

[qode_advanced_tabs][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Apartment Syndication”]

An apartment syndication is a temporary professional financial services alliance formed for the purpose of handling a large apartment transaction that would be hard or impossible for the entities involved to handle individually, which allows companies to pool their resources and share risks and returns. In regards to apartments, a syndication is typically a partnership between general partners (i.e. the syndicator) and the limited partners (i.e. the investors) to acquire, manage and sell an apartment community while sharing in the profits.

[/qode_advanced_tab][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Accredited Investor”]

An accredited investor is a person that can invest in securities (i.e. invest in an apartment syndication as a limited partner) by satisfying one of the requirements regarding income or net worth. The current requirements to qualify are an annual income of $200,000 or $300,000 for joint income for the last two years with expectation of earning the same or higher or a net worth exceeding $1 million either individually or jointly with a spouse.

[/qode_advanced_tab][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Sophisticated Investor”]

A sophisticated investor is a person who is deemed to have sufficient investing experience and knowledge to weigh the risks and merits of an investment opportunity.

[/qode_advanced_tab][/qode_advanced_tabs]
[qode_advanced_tabs][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Sale Proceeds”]

The sales proceeds are the profit collected at the sale of the apartment community.

For example, here is a how the sales proceeds is calculated for a 238-unit apartment community purchased at $12,500,000 and sold after a five year value-add business plan:

Exit NOI$1,125,713
Exit Cap Rate5.9%
Exit Price$19,079,881
Closing Costs($191,836)
Remaining Debt($10,615,905)
Sales Proceeds$8,272,140
[/qode_advanced_tab][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Internal Rate Of Return (IRR)”]

The internal rate of return (IRR) is the rate, expressed as a percentage, needed to convert the sum of all future uneven cash flow (cash flow, sales proceeds and principal pay down) to equal the equity investment. IRR is one of the main factors the passive investor should focus on when qualifying a deal.

 

A very simple example is let’s say that you invest $100. The investment has cash flow of $10 in year 1, and $40 in year 2. At the end of year 2, the investment is liquidated and the $100 is returned.

 

The total profit is $50 ($10 year 1 + $40 year 2).

 

Simple division would say that the return is 50% ($50/100). But since time value of money (two years in this example) impacts return, the IRR is actually only 23.43%.

 

If we had received the $50 cash flow and $100 investment returned all in year 1, then yes, the IRR would be 50%. But because we had to “spread” the cash flow over two years, the return percentage is negatively impacted.

 

The timing of when cash flow is received has a significant and direct impact on the calculated return. In other words, the sooner you receive the cash, the higher the IRR will be.

[/qode_advanced_tab][qode_advanced_tab tab_title=”Cash-On-Cash (COC)”]

The cash-on-cash (CoC) return is the rate of return, expressed as a percentage, based on the cash flow and the equity investment. CoC return is calculated by dividing the cash flow by the initial investment.

For example, a 238-unit apartment community with a cash flow of $320,285 and an initial investment of $3,645,170 results in a CoC return of 8.8%
