Investing in Real Estate
Invest in your future: F1RST CHO1CE Investment Solutions has partnered with Fortress Real Capital to allow you to invest directly into large scale Real Estate Development projects with real security and real returns.
Fortress is an RSP and non-accredited eligible syndicate mortgage product
that allows a consumer to invest directly into the proven market of Canadian real estate development and construction. Your principal amount is fully secured against the subject property where you enjoy steady interest on your funds and, where available, profit participation at the end of your term. Fixed terms, defined horizons… investing that makes sense.
Security: Fortress offers real collateral in the form of a direct charge against real estate, a feature unique to syndicate mortgages. Projects include interest reserves to ensure funds are paid out at proper intervals. Most importantly, all high-rise projects are bonded and insured to protect Fortress investors from cost over-runs.
Defined Terms: Other products can leave you guessing when and where you’ll make a profit, but Fortress projects have defined terms so you know exactly when you’ll receive interest payments. That’s the benefit of investing via a syndicate mortgage; you have the benefits and rights of being a lender to protect your position.
Experience: All of the developers and builders in the Fortress client family bring decades of knowledge and experience to the table. Each project has been carefully scrutinized and evaluated to make sure it meets with Fortress’ requirements. Before any project is presented to investors it is evaluated by a cadre of third party experts, including cost consultants, engineers, research firms and boutique law firms with a specialty in real estate.
A Bit About the Offering:
- Fixed annual returns (non-compounding)
- Terms vary: 24 months. 36 months, 48 months
- $25,000 minimum
- RSP, LIRA, LIF, and RIF eligible
- Loan to Value Ratios of about 75%
- Investment is secured by a charge on real estate
- Certified appraisals and/or valuation opinions
- Also TFSA and RESP eligible ($15,000 minimum)
Choice: As a Fortress investor you’re not buying through a blind pool or a fund. You can review and select which projects make sense for you and your investment objectives. Eligible to be held in your RSP, LIRA, RIF, LIF, RESP and even TFSA accounts, Fortress is also available to ‘non-accredited’ investors and, with an Offering Memorandum, eligible investors too.
Real Value: At Fortress, we believe in ‘old fashioned’ value when it comes to investing. Something is worth more when genuine value has been added to it, not just because a stock ticker says so. The value of real estate returns is demonstrable and measurable.
By investing in the development and construction of commercial and residential properties, you’re helping to create new places for Canadians to work and live, and that’s growth that makes sense.
