Appreciation is the increase in value of a property – whether through renovations, market cycle, or location. Most people automatically think of an area becoming “hot” as the reason for rising values. Think of market appreciation as passive… you don’t have to do anything to earn it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can invest in our deals?
Only accredited or sophisticated investors can take part in our opportunities. We have strict standards on who invests along with us, and the SEC does too. We need to get to know each other and ensure our values and goals align. Keep in mind that the financial income is not the only factor that determines whether you are eligible to invest with us. This is a long term partnership, like a marriage. Commercial multifamily real estate investing might not be the best route for every investor. That is why we need to have a conversation and cover a few basic points before we can move further.
What is an accredited investor?
- Your individual income has been $200,000 ($300,000 jointly with spouse) or more in the past two years and you have a reasonable expectation of reaching the same income level this year.
- Your individual net worth (or joint net worth with spouse) exceeds $1,000,000 or have assets under management of $1,000,000 or above, excluding your primary residence.
- You are a holder in good standing of the Series 7, Series 65, or Series 82 licenses professional certifications, designations or credentials
- You are a “knowledgeable employee” of a fund with respect to private investments
What is a sophisticated investor?
Either alone or with a purchaser representative, you have sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters that make you capable of evaluating the merits and risks of the prospective investment. The purchaser representative cannot be affiliated with the issuer and needs to be acknowledged by the purchaser in writing.
What is the minimum investment?
At Noirvest, our goal is to extend opportunities to those who may not have had access to these types of investment opportunities. So while most offerings have a $50,000 – $100,000+ required minimum investment range, our minimum is $25,000 and open to the discretion of the managers on a case by case basis.
When will I get my original investment back and what is the holding period?
While most syndications target a holding period of 5-7 years and then a sale to cash out their investors, our primary goal is cash flow and creating generational wealth. We execute our value-add plan and then first look to refinance to recoup our investors most, if not all, of their principal investment in the first 3-5 years. We will always consider an opportunistic sale if one is presented.
When and how will I get paid?
Distributions are made monthly or quarterly from available operating cash flow and are automatically deposited into investors’ bank accounts. Investors are notified of upcoming distributions and are able to track their distribution history through their investor portal.
Can I invest using a retirement account (IRA or solo 401K)?
Yes! You simply transfer funds into a Self Directed IRA and have the funds directed to the investment. We can help with this process and refer some custodians.
What are the tax benefits?
Multifamily apartment investments are very tax efficient. As a limited partner, you will benefit from your portion of the investment’s deductions for property taxes, loan interest and depreciation. When possible, we also like to use a cost segregation strategy to accelerate depreciation. It’s not unusual for a $100K investment to return actual cash in your pocket of $8K while experiencing a paper loss on your annual K-1. That loss can then be used to offset other income. Refinance events are non-taxable returns of capital that don’t fall under any tax obligation categories. At the time of a sale, profits are treated as long-term capital gains (more favorable tax treatment than short term gains).
*Keep in mind that this is not professional tax advice. We recommend consulting with a tax professional regarding specific tax benefits for your situation.
