Today, group investing is a popular alternative for the way title to commercial and investment real estate is held. Groups formed with as few as two people and some with thousands of investors own a substation portion of commercial and investment real estate in the U.S. When a real estate agent gets involved representing their client in a group structure the agent is often in unfamiliar territory. This course exposes the agent to various IRS and Securities laws that the agent, their client and the client's legal and tax advisors often face in making the decision if an investment in a group is appropriate for the client. In addition many agents may want to sponsor group investments on their own and, to protect their investors, the agent needs to know these IRS rules and Securities laws.
