Club Syndication: How to Raise Capital for Real Estate Investors in Canada
Developer & Real Estate Investor - Shane Melanson helps Canadian real estate investors raise capital.
Specifically for real estate investors in Canada who: have a track record investing and want to scale their business to 7 and 8 figure properties.
For the past 12 years, I've helped real estate investors transact more than a quarter billion in income producing real estate. I've raised multiple 8 Figures for my own deals. Some clients have been able to replace a 6-figure income with a single commercial property * (not an income claim, requires hard work, dedication and capital).
There are three primary ways I can help you invest. Which would you like help with?
How to Raise Capital For Your Next Real Estate Syndication
Resources to help Real Estate Investors get to the next level.
How to build a digital marketing plan that attracts the right people who are predisposed to want to invest with you. Investing in single family rentals (SFRs) is a good place to start, but for many real estate entrepreneurs they quickly realize to generate $200,000/year in income, they'll need 50+ rental homes.
Most investors have heard about real estate syndications and raising money, but, where to start?
Who to trust? How much money do you need? What is the process to raising capital? There is a simple 3 Step Framework to Get Started:
3 Steps to Grow Your Real Estate Portfolio & Retire Early
I started like many real estate investors - buying and fixing up single family properties, finding tenants to generate a few hundred/month. When the Calgary market was appreciating 5%/year - my portfolio looked good.
Back then I was working a fulltime job and managing multiple properties. I didn't have a family. So working long hours and weekends didn't bother me. Fast forward, today, married with 3 kids- I wanted more time to be with my family.
The goal of investing in real estate was to give me freedom- not create a 2nd low paying job.
In 2008, I partnered with my father-in-law, a 40 year veteran developer and commercial real estate investor. He taught me how to raise capital and invest in 7 and 8 figure commercial and multifamily properties.
- How to secure capital (both debt and equity).
- Who you need on your team to help you.
- How to structure and negotiate with investors
When I started, most clients were REIT's, Pension Funds and Wealthy Families. Once in a while a physician, engineer or business owner would ask me to help them buy a apartment, retail or warehouse building. It was in helping individuals making the leap from single family to commercial where I saw I could add the most value to investors.
But, there was one thing that kept many of these investors small.
Lack of Capital.
Even if an investor had $500k, 1M or $5M, eventually, they would run out of capital. And, the the Game of Commercial Real Estate is about having money to take advantage of deals at opportune times.
I started to consult for several real estate investors who had a track record, but wanted to raise more money. As I developed my own online presence, sharing what was working for me (and learning what didn't work), I would share these findings.
Today, when I'm not working on my own projects and developments, I mentor a few real estate entrepreneurs who want help raising capital.
