“Accredited investor” is a term that Natali and I were relatively unfamiliar with until recently. But this year as we started taking a deeper look at our investment strategy, we were introduced to this term.

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, we’re discussing what it means to be an accredited investor, and how a real estate investor would qualify for this title. We’ll also explain what types of professions automatically qualify as accredited investors. Please join us for episode 235! 

More About This Show
This year we've been thinking more about our investment strategy as a whole. We've taken a hard look at real estate investment funds, how we run our business, and how we interact with our clients. During a call with our lawyer, he mentioned that if we were selling securities (we're not), we would need to ensure that those clients were accredited investors. 

Since our products are tangible homes, this is not something we need to worry about. But if we sold securities or crowdfunded financial instruments that held monetary value, we'd want to protect our business by selling primarily to accredited investor. 

An accredited investor is a person who meets certain qualifications in terms of income, asset size, net worth, or profession. An accredited investor is thought to be financially competent, and therefore need fewer regulations and legal protections. 

Recently Natali wanted to purchase an investment type that required her to be an accredited investor. On today's show we'll discuss how to become an accredited investor, and legal protection for accredited investors. We'll talk about the importance of calculating your net worth, the requirements for an accredited investor and much more!
