And by pooling your funds with other investors, we can offer you a piece of the hot Southern California real estate market for a low minimum investment amount.

Three Investment Types
Why invest with Gatsby Investment?
Historical high returns:Annualized returns ranging from 10-25%. This is largely because of Gatsby’s proprietary software, automation, and proven business model we have developed over the years. Our projects are completed quickly and affordably. This efficiency leads to higher-than-normal returns.
Deal-by-deal control:Our projects are offered on a deal-by-deal basis, putting you in complete control of which properties you invest in. Before you invest, you’ll have access to the property details (including the address), financial breakdown, and a full description of what we are doing to maximize the value of the property.
Flexible terms:Choose from real estate investments ranging from six months to five years. We even offer the option to continue your renovation or development investment into a long-term rental investment once the property is stabilized. This flexibility allows you to tailor a real estate portfolio that meets your personal goals.
Comparatively low minimum investments:Own a piece of L.A. real estate for as little as $10,000. Because of the systems Gatsby has in place, we can pool money from multiple investors to offer comparatively low minimum investments.
Valuable deals:Our industry connections allow us to locate deals with the greatest potential. Some of our acquisitions come from auction, some from broker relationships, and some are even off-market. Many of our projects would traditionally only be available to elite real estate investors using their connections to find deals that would have been inaccessible to the average investor. But with our innovative systems, Gatsby has made these deals available to the public.
Experienced professionals:Our team has successfully completed hundreds of real estate deals. By leveraging our experience, you automatically avoid the pitfalls of most real estate investors. From brokers to contractors and analysts to architects, our professionals are the best in the industry. You get to benefit from the experience, knowledge, and skill of some of the most accomplished experts in the LA market.
Security:Gatsby Investment is registered with the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and files reports regularly (registration number CIK #0001833897).
Transparency:Gatsby offers complete transparency into our full track record. We allow all investors to view the financial details for every completed property.
Easy-to-use online platform:You can invest quickly and securely from your computer or smartphone from anywhere.
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.

Gatsby invests alongside you!
An investment starts with Gatsby creating an LLC to buy the property, putting down the required deposit, and getting the property under contract. We then offer the investment opportunity for up to 60 days or until the project is fully funded. If the full amount is not raised within this timeframe, Gatsby will invest the balance into the property and close the investment opportunity.
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.
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.
