Have you wondered what an accredited investor is? There are plenty of different types of real estate investors. Yet, someone who fits one of these conditions qualified as an accredited investor:

  • An investor with an annual single income of $200,000 (If married, a combined income of $300,000)
  • An investor with a net worth of at least $1M (excluding primary residence)

Plus, the investor would be expected to make at least the same amount annually. Don’t worry that you won’t be able to get rich investing if you’re not an accredited investor, the SEC lets companies and private funds skip the typical need to register certain investments and raise money through non-accredited investors.

You have to meet the income thresholds for three consecutive years.

Other Accredited Investors

Banks, corporations, nonprofits, trusts and partnerships can be accredited investors too. Here are the ways these entities can be accredited investors:

  • Trusts with assets in excess of $5M, provided it wasn’t formed to purchase the securities
  • An entity in which every equity owner is an accredited investor
