    3 Types of Apartment Syndication with Josh Cantwell.

    3 Types of Apartment Syndication with Josh Cantwell.

    In this episode, Josh discusses the different types of apartment syndications, focusing on value-add properties. He explains that value-add deals involve buildings that are not fully stabilized and have rents below market value. These properties require cosmetic updates, such as painting and flooring, but do not require major structural work. Josh emphasizes that value-add properties are typically located in B and C class markets, which offer great potential for growth. He also briefly touches on turnkey cash flow deals, which are properties that are already at market value and do not require significant renovations.

    Lastly, he mentions deep construction or distressed properties, which are not recommended for newer investors due to the high level of renovation and the need for bridge financing.
