What is an accredited investor and why does RealCrowd only allow accredited investors to participate in the commercial real estate opportunities?
In its simplest form, an accredited investor is a person with income exceeding $200,000 in each of the two most recent years, or joint income with a spouse exceeding $300,000, or has an individual or joint net worth exceeding $1 million excluding their primary residence.
The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) requires that an investor has the financial wherewithal to participate in certain investments that are not registered with the SEC. Investments that are registered with the SEC, like publicly traded stocks, can be made available to a broader range of investors. However many investments are not registered with the SEC, like many real estate investment opportunities. Whether or not an investment is registered with the SEC, does not indicate a higher or lower level of risk or returns. In fact, many real estate investments that aren’t registered with the SEC can provide a lower risk profile and higher return threshold than its registered counterparts.
