What are accredited investors?


Accredited investors are individuals or entities who meet one of the following four SEC criteria to qualify for investing in sophisticated investment opportunities:

  1. You have earned $200,000 or more in income over the past two years (and can reasonably expect to continue earning at this level).
  2. You and your spouse have earned a combined $300,000 or more over the past two years (and can reasonably expect to continue earning at this level).
  3. You maintain a personal net worth of $1 million or more (excluding the value of your primary residence).   
  4. You are an entity with at least $5 million in assets, or you are an entity in which all equity owners are accredited investors.
As soon as you have been verified as an accredited investor, you can start investing and building your wealth through our real estate investment company.

What does a real estate investment company do?


Investing with a real estate company helps you build wealth in this field more easily, and often with more security and better returns than you might achieve doing it alone. 

Real estate investment companies pool money from multiple investors to buy assets and manage the project on behalf of the investors.

Why is investing with a real estate company better than traditional real estate investing? 


Real estate is among the most reliable investments available, with comparatively low risk and stable returns. But many investors don't consider it because of the high upfront cost and complexity that comes with flipping homes or developing multi-family properties and luxury homes.

To be successful in traditional property investing, you need:

  • Large amounts of cash: In high-value markets like Los Angeles, purchasing a property and rehabbing or developing the property often costs more than individual investors are willing to risk in one project.
  • Experience and skill: Flippers and developers need to be experts in analysis, finance, design project management, marketing, and sales. 
  • Connections: Most investors don’t have the industry connections to find the best contractors and vendors for their projects.
  • Hands-on management: With so many contractors involved in a development project, you need boots on the ground to ensure the success of the project.
  • Time: All this management and supervision requires countless hours.
  • An exceptionally high tolerance for risk: When all your cash is tied up in one investment, a single bad deal could be impossible to recover from. So you have to be perfectly comfortable with taking on risk.   
Investing with a real estate company addresses each of these problems!

Your real estate investment company:

  • Pools cash from multiple investors: With your money pooled, you can invest in high-quality projects that would otherwise be out of reach financially.
  • Has the experience and skill: Reputable real estate investment companies like Gatsby Investment have experts to handle every aspect of the deal.  
  • Has connections: Reputable real estate investment companies like Gatsby also have the industry connections to find the best possible contractors and vendors.
  • Provides hands-on management: You can rest assured that the day-to-day operations of your project are being professionally managed.
  • Saves you time: Your income from your investment will be completely passive!
  • Mitigates risk with diverse investment options: You can invest in several different projects over varied property types to diversify your investment and reduce your risk.   
For all these reasons, real estate investment companies have been growing in popularity. But there’s one company that stands apart from the rest...

Introducing Gatsby Investment


Gatsby Investment was founded by Mr. Gatsby in 2016. Gatsby had just sold his online business, and he chose to invest his proceeds in real estate because the returns in real estate are consistently higher than many other investment types.

A savvy businessman, Gatsby knew he needed a team of experts to navigate the complex Los Angeles market and maximize returns on his investments. 

With Gatsby’s exceptional team of professionals in place, Gatsby Investment invested over $40 million in various projects. The strategy proved successful, with a consistent track record of profitable returns over four years. 

At this point Gatsby wanted to help other investors (who didn’t have $40 million available for investing) take advantage of his real estate strategy. So we at Gatsby Investment created a proprietary investment platform that allows accredited investors of all ages, genders, and backgrounds to become successful in real estate. 

The secret to Gatsby’s real estate success


Gatsby saw an opportunity to do what no one else in the LA real estate market was doing: meet market demand for high-quality homes and properties with crowdfunded flipping and development projects.

We specialize in residential and commercial real estate, focusing on three distinct investment types with substantial profit potential:

1. Flipping single-family homes


Fixing-and-flipping has a long history as an investment strategy, but funding flips via residential real estate investment companies is a new concept. It is also one ideally suited to the LA market with its constantly changing social landscape and abundance of investment opportunities.  

2. Developing high-quality multi-family projects


In addition to earning solid returns, developing multi-family projects helps to meet the high demand for housing in the Los Angeles market. Construction on new multi-family simply hasn’t kept pace with the increasing need, resulting in a severe housing shortage in LA. We want to help Angelinos find the great housing they’re looking for. 

3. Building luxury homes


Our experts have no shortage of opportunities to find sites for luxury homes in elite neighborhoods like Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood Hills, particularly with so many old homes taking up existing space. We use investor funding to purchase vacant lots (or lots with existing structures that can be demolished) and build luxury homes that sell for up to $15 million.

These types of investments would be inaccessible to smaller investors if it weren’t for our system of pooling investor’s money to complete large projects with comparatively small investments from multiple sources.
