What is passive real estate investment, and how does it work?
Passive real estate investment is a form of investing in which an individual invests their money in real estate assets without actively managing or operating the property. The investor invests capital, while an operator, such as Oak IQ, manages all aspects of the deal. Oak IQ takes care of acquisition, holding the debt, managing construction for renovation projects, and property management to take care of day-to-day operations, such as tenant screening, rent collection, and property maintenance.
What are some benefits of passive real estate investment?
The benefits of becoming a passive investor with Oak IQ are numerous. The biggest benefit for many investors is "time freedom" — The ability to grow wealth and income through real estate without demand on your time. As a passive investor, you can also receive numerous tax benefits, the potential for strong returns, recession-resistance, the preservation of capital (hedge against inflation) and more.

How risky is passive real estate investing?
As with all investments, passive real estate investments carry risk. On a risk-adjusted basis, "group investment" deals with seasoned operators like Oak IQ have statistically outperformed DIY real estate investments. We highly recommend doing your own due diligence before investing in any of our deals, and we go to great lengths to ensure you have all the information you need to make the best decision. However, it is always prudent to consult with your trusted financial advisor and tax professional before investing.
Can I get my money back any time?
Real estate is largely an illiquid investment. This is why it is such a powerful hedge against inflation, and a great way to preserve hard-earned capital from deterioration. Each of our deals have a projected hold period, usually 3-5 years. We tell our investors to expect their capital to be tied up for the projected hold period. It's possible we may exit a deal sooner than the projected hold period, if it is in the best financial interest of investors to do so.
How much money do I need to start investing in real estate passively?
Our group investment deals have a required minimum investment. That amount can vary, but a typical deal has a required minimum investment of $50,000.
What if I am not an entrepreneur? Can I still invest?
Yes! We focus on providing the very best group real estate investments possible. Our primary investors are entrepreneurs, but you don't have to be an entrepreneur in order to invest with Oak IQ. If you're interested in learning more, click here to schedule a call.
