Syndication Case Study #1 - Haven on the Rail (Phoenix, AZ)

Updated: May 29, 2022

If you’ve decided that incorporating real estate into your investment portfolio is a no-brainer and realize that you don’t have the time or desire to be an active investor (another great choice!), then investing in a no-hassle, hands-off, Real Estate Syndication is the best option. These investments enable multiple participants to pool capital together to purchase a real estate property that delivers passive income and appreciation to the investor.

Limitless Investing believes strongly in transparency, which is why we publish case studies for all of our investments once they have exited (sold or refinanced) and the investment outcomes have been finalized. The case study today will be focused on Haven on the Rail in Phoenix, Arizona.
