DALLAS, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Real estate investment firm Mara Poling today launched the Mara Poling Total Return Fund on the industry's most active crowdfunding marketplace RealCrowd.
Today, over twenty thousand prospective investors, seeking the substantial returns and tax advantages that only real estate can provide, will have their chance to invest in the Mara Poling Total Return Fund. Mara Poling plans to raise a total of $20M to acquire $50M in performing Multi Family assets with value-add opportunities in growing markets. Mara Poling selected the RealCrowd platform to engage accredited investors, including investors with Self-Directed IRAs.
"Every investor should be looking to add Multi Family real estate to their portfolio. An investment in commercial real estate in general, and Multi Family in particular, provides investors with returns equal to or greater than equities with the stability of a fixed income investment – all with tax advantages that only real estate can offer." said Pat Poling, Founder and CEO of Mara Poling. "Our proven investment strategy and rigorous process honed from over $1B in acquisitions, generates a Total Return balanced between cash yield and equity growth."
Mara Poling anticipates the fund will acquire 3 to 5 assets over the next 18 to 24 months, primarily in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. DFW was selected for its population, employment, and income growth, now and into the future. The combined impacts of the lack of new rental unit supply with the strong growth in rental demand have created an outstanding opportunity for Multi Family investors. Mara Poling estimates annual total returns for the Mara Poling Total Return Fund to be 15% to 18%+ over the hold period.
"I was so excited to finally find a market place for commercial real estate that allows me to diversify my portfolio into an area normally out of reach for the average investor like myself. RealCrowd gives me exposure to various types of investments, makes it easy to research the opportunities that are right for me, and then automates the closing steps so I can make my investment quickly and hassle free." Sven Gerjets, RealCrowd Investor and Technology Executive.
"We've found over the last three years of running RealCrowd that investors are looking for stability, preservation of capital and strong yields that are provided by partnering with great real estate sponsors," said Adam Hooper, RealCrowd CEO. "RealCrowd is all about leveraging technology to provide access to high-value commercial real estate investment opportunities to the broadest community possible. We are excited to have a sponsor like Mara Poling utilizing our technology to meet and partner with new investors through our platform."
