We run extensive background checks, criminal checks, bad actor checks, and reference checks on sponsors. In addition to never allowing a sponsor with a criminal history / any securities related issue to use the platform, we may also turn down sponsors due to poor reference checks even if background and criminal checks come back clear.
We require unaffiliated sponsors to use an unaffiliated third-party escrow agent. When an investor makes an investment with unaffiliated sponsors using the RealtyMogul platform, the investor’s money is transferred directly into a third-party escrow account. All closing conditions in connection with a sponsor’s offering need to be met before the third-party escrow agent will approve releasing investor funds to the issuer or general partner. For example, if an issuer or general partner plans to use funds for a real estate acquisition that does not ultimately transact, the third-party escrow agent will not transfer investor funds to the issuer or general partner, and funds will be returned to investors.
Our controls include visiting every property (or a subset of properties if it’s a fund) to confirm the real estate is what and where the real estate is supposed to be.
We have robust quality controls with detailed checklists and a review of third-party reports.

The Sponsor’s Projections and Targets are not a predictor, projection or guarantee of future performance.

Projections and Target returns should not be used as a primary basis for an investor’s decision to invest.

The information on this Page is not complete, and each prospective investor should carefully read all of the Investment Documents and any supplements thereto, copies of which are available by clicking the links above or upon request, before deciding whether to make an investment. The information on this page should not be used as a primary basis for an investor’s decision to invest.

Risk of Investment
This real estate investment is speculative and involves substantial risk. There can be no assurances that all or any of the assumptions will be true or that actual performance will bear any relation to the hypothetical illustrations herein, and no guarantee or representation is made that investment objectives of the Sponsor will be achieved. In the event that actual performance is below the Sponsor’s Targets, your investment could be materially and adversely affected, and there can be no assurance that investors will not suffer significant losses. A loss of part or all of the principal value of your investment may occur. You should not invest unless you can readily bear the consequences of such loss. Please see the Sponsor’s Investment Documents for additional information, including the Sponsor’s discussion concerning risk factors.
Risk of Forward-Looking Statements
Forward-looking statements are found here and in the applicable Investment Documents and may include words like “expects,” “intends,” “anticipates,” “estimates” and other similar words. These statements are intended to convey the Project Sponsor’s projections or expectations as of the date made. These statements are inherently subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties. Please see the applicable Investment Documents for disclosure relating to forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to the Sponsor or its affiliates apply only as of the date of the offering and are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements included elsewhere in the Investment Documents. Any financial projections are preliminary and subject to change; the Sponsor undertakes no obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that arise after the date made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Inevitably, some assumptions will not materialize, and unanticipated events and circumstances may affect the ultimate financial results. Projections are inherently subject to substantial and numerous uncertainties and to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks, and the assumptions underlying the projections may be inaccurate in any material respect. Therefore, the actual results achieved may vary significantly from the forecasts, and the variations may be material.
Sponsor’s use of Debt
A substantial portion of the total acquisition for the Property will be paid with borrowed funds, i.e., debt. There can be no assurance that the Sponsor will secure debt on the rates and terms noted above, or at all. All of the Sponsor’s estimated rates and terms of the debt financing are subject to lender approval, including but not limited to the annual interest rate and possible increases in capital reserve requirements for funds to be held in a lender-controlled capital reserve account. The use of borrowed money to acquire real estate is referred to as leveraging. Leveraging increases the risk of loss. If the Sponsor were unable to pay the payments on the borrowed funds (called a "default"), the lender might foreclose, and the Sponsor could lose its investment in its property.
In addition, unless the debt provides for a fixed rate of interest during the term of the loan and/or any subsequent extensions, the total amount of interest paid over the term of the debt will increase by the same amount as the related index. For example, if the index rate increases by 0.50% (50 basis points) the interest rate on the loan will increase by the same amount. The amount of such interest rate increases may be capped either by its terms or as the result of the Sponsor entering into an arrangement that caps the interest rate with respect to the debt at a particular rate.
Sponsor’s Offering is Not Registered
The interests offered by the Sponsor will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) in reliance upon the exemptions from registration pursuant to Rule 506(c) of Regulation D as promulgated under the Securities Act (“Private Placement.”). In addition, the interests will not be registered under any state securities laws in reliance on exemptions from registration. Such interests are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under applicable state and federal securities laws pursuant to registration or an available exemption. All Private Placements on the RealtyMogul Platform are intended solely for “Accredited Investors,” as that term is defined Rule 501(a) of the Securities Act. Prospective investors must certify that they are Accredited Investors and provide either certain supporting documents or third party verification, and must acknowledge that they have received and read all investment materials.
RM Technologies, LLC Fees and Conflicts
RM Technologies, LLC, an affiliate of RealtyMogul, operates the RealtyMogul Platform. RM Technologies, LLC charges a fixed, non-percentage-based licensing fee for real estate companies and their sponsors to license and use the RM Technologies LLC’s proprietary Platform, including one-time flat licensing fees for its Technology Solution and an ongoing quarterly flat licensing fees for its Administration Solution. A portion of the offering proceeds may be allocated as a reserve to ensure timely payment of the ongoing licensing fees for RM Technologies’ Administration Solution. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administration Solution Fee is not due with respect to any quarter until the Administration Solution has been provided by RM Technologies and without regard to any amounts on reserve for the payment of such fees. An estimate of the Technology Solution licensing fee is included in the Closing Costs above and is intended to be capitalized into the transaction at the discretion of the Sponsor. The licensing fees received by RM Technologies, LLC are disclosed in the relevant operating agreement(s). Additionally, from time to time, employees of RM Technologies, LL C and its affiliates invest in Sponsor’s offering. RM Technologies LLC’s receipt of licensing fees and its employee’s investments in Sponsor’s offering creates a conflict of interest between RealtyMogul and its affiliates, and investors or prospective investors.

They do not provide investment advice or recommend the purchase of any securities that are the subject of this agreement or the Sponsor’s offering with respect to the Project.
