Real Estate Investing: Understanding the Basics of Joint Venture Equity Webinar
Financing real estate using a joint venture structure can be complex, with many developers and investors lacking a basic understanding of some of the considerations that go into such a partnership. In real estate, an equity joint venture is a legal partnership between two or more individuals or entities (each a “partner”) to jointly acquire and/or develop a property. Each partner typically brings a unique skill set or ability to the partnership. Often one partner brings access to the investment and day-to-day oversight responsibility, while the other might bring the majority of the capital and be more passively involved in the investment. As most large real estate projects require financing that involves real estate operators to work with real estate capital providers, understanding the mechanics behind a JV arrangement is important for all involved. These joint ventures are a critical part of the process, as they can allow commercial real estate projects to be feasible and get off the ground. This webcast will discuss JV practices for successful transactions including role of capital and operating partner, equity positions, limited partner and sponsor roles, cash flow priorities for proceeds and distributions, and internal return requirements (IRR). The webcast will feature perspectives from Enterprise’s Capital Division along with case examples culled from actual transactions.
