Jordan’s Investing Advice:
1. Secured Real Estate Funds. These Regulation A+ funds, (often referred to as crowdsourcing funds) were authorized by the Jobs Act of 2012 and they allow the average investor access to investments that used to be available just to big institutions. My favorite example is the Secured Real Estate Income Strategies LLC fund atwww.securedrealestatefunds.com
2. Permian Basin Oil and Gas Funds. The Permian Basin in Odessa-Midland Texas is the most productive oilfield in America, and funds that own oil wells there can provide great returns. My favorite is run by Resolute Capital Partners at the website www.resolutecapitalpartners.
3. High yields and Growth from non–Manhattan real estate. While most real estate people concentrate on investing in Manhattan, there are even better opportunities in Brooklyn and Queens where there is not as much competition for good deals. Then Goodman Real Estate Fund (no relation to me by the way) buys and fixes up apartments and homes and offices in the outer boroughs of New York. It pays a preferred annual yield of 10% and then pays additional distributions when it sells properties at a profit. That has amounted to a total return of 17% over several years.
