Frequently Asked Questions
The Connected Companies is a Los Angeles based investment firm with an emphasis acquiring and managing Multifamily and suburban Retail real estate. We pride ourselves on our hands-on approach when enhancing real estate values. By managing the deal from acquisition to disposition, we are able to cut unnecessary costs and deliver maximum value for our community stakeholders – investors, residents, businesses.
Connected’s typical investor profile makeup consists of accredited high net-worth individuals seeking passive, risked-adjusted investment returns. We also partner with well capitalized land owners to reposition underutilized parcels within the Greater Los Angeles Vicinity.
Though there is no minimum investment amount, Connected typically seeks no more than 2-3 investors per deal. We firmly believe in building lasting partnerships, and therefore would prefer our partners to remain invested in our assets. Diluting it with additional partners loses the personalized service we aim to provide for our financial partners.
Our deals are typically structured as limited liability companies. For each investment, we enter into a joint venture as the managing member and assume all responsibilities related to the properties’ success. As the manager, we will safeguard the asset and report earnings and major decisions to investors.
Connected’s current deal size ranges between $2 to $10 million. This uniquely positions us above the saturated small investors market, but slightly below the institutional competition. However, we take a holistic approach towards investment underwriting and pursue any deals that yield our investors’ attractive risk-adjusted returns.
Distributions are typically made quarterly from available operating cash flow and are either disbursed via checks or directly deposited into investors’ bank accounts. Size and timing of distributions depend on the business plan and project performance. Investors are notified of upcoming distributions through email and are encouraged to review the updated earnings report.
Our investment horizon varies by opportunity, but a typical business plan assumes a 3-10 year hold period.
