United Shares is an investment platform that allows accredited investors to invest in pre-identified private real estate investments. Investors can invest as little as $10,000 into each opportunity via a United Shares Fund. The money is held in an escrow account and once the investment target is met, it is transferred for the purpose of investing in a specific property.
When you invest through United Shares, you own shares in a separate Limited Liability Company (LLC) that is set up for each investment opportunity. The LLC will either purchase or hold equity in the real estate property. This structure allows for limited financial exposure and avoids taxes at the entity level.

The fund you invest in will be secured by a residential or commercial property and will receive bi-yearly interest payments. A share of those payments will be deposited directly into a bank account of your choice in accordance with the terms of the operating agreement for the fund. The fund you invest in will receive periodic payments of cash flow from rents and/or a share of the proceeds when the property is eventually sold. Please review the operating agreement for the specific investment opportunity you are considering for further details.
Projected returns and distributions, as well as a timetable for milestones and a distribution schedule, would be specific to each listing and, when available, would be noted in the offering documents for that investment.

United Shares requires quarterly qualitative and quantitative reporting and monthly updates
Private real estate investments of the type you find on United Shares are not traded on a public market and as a result, your shares in these investments cannot be easily traded or sold. Each investment has a unique projected “hold period”. The hold period is the expected time investors will be involved with the investment until it is re-sold. Please note that the “hold period” is an estimate and may differ from the actual hold period for the investment. This expected hold period will be made available to investors through the Investment Overview Page for a specific investment and currently ranges from less than 6 months to greater than 5 years. For more details regarding the hold period, please review the Operating Agreement and Subscription Agreement associated with the specific investment.
