Why Real Estate?

Diversifying your portfolio with real estate investments is the best way to balance risk and reward.

Real estate historically generates higher than average returns, and since it’s backed by a physical asset, it’s less likely to be affected by market uncertainties that cause stock prices to fluctuate. Unlike other asset classes, real estate can also help you hedge against inflation.

What is real estate syndication?

Real estate syndication is an alternative investment type, similar to real estate crowdfunding. Capital is pooled from multiple investors, allowing people to access high-value real estate deals with a low minimum investment amount. This gives everyday investors access to deals that would normally only be available to the wealthiest investors.

Unlike most real estate crowdfunding, real estate syndication offers a true ownership share in the underlying real estate. Gatsby will form and manage a separate limited liability company (“LLC”) for each real estate investment opportunity. For each LLC, the investors are the joint members and owners of the LLC, and thus, will each hold an indirect economic interest in the underlying real property asset. With Gatsby, you’re not just an investor in a fund; you’re an indirect owner of real property in which you want to specifically invest.

Why you should invest in Los Angeles

The demand for Los Angeles real estate remains high year after year. With the largest manufacturing base in the country, a fast-growing tech industry, and an increasing number of venture capital startups, Los Angeles offers an exceptionally dynamic economy. Add the attraction of the entertainment industry, the appeal of year-round sunshine, and the desire to live in one of the most exciting cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why LA has a proven record of consistent demand.

Limited supply is another key factor in the value of the Southern California estate market. Housing in LA is sprawling and limited by geographic boundaries including the ocean to the west and the mountains to the north and east.

The high demand and low supply have driven LA to become a market leader in both rent growth and property appreciation.

Legal structure

The LLC will offer Class A Units to prospective investors in accordance with a Subscription Agreement and the economics and management of the LLC will be governed by an Amended and Restated Operating Agreement to which each investor will agree to be bound when he/she/it invests in the LLC. Gatsby Investment acts as the managing member and owner of Class B Units in the LLC (and has all voting rights), and the investors are the members and owners of Class A Units in the LLC. As a holder of Class A Units, you have an indirect economic interest in the single real property asset held by the LLC, and the number of Class A Units issued to you is based on the amount you invest and the value of the equity in the underlying property at the time of investment.

Tax benefits: Depreciation – 100% of the property’s depreciation expense will pass through to the investors based on their respective ownership percentages.

Economic benefits: Appreciation – Investors will benefit from the increase in value of the property over time.

Tax reporting: Schedule K-1 – The LLC will issue to each investor a Schedule K-1 at the end of each fiscal year, which can be used by the investor to prepare his/her/its tax returns.
