Real Estate investment clubs are predominately composed of individuals interested in investing in real estate. They share ideas and typically allow the member to invest on their own without the Club playing a direct role in, or a part of the investment decision of the individual member. There is no pooling of investment capital. This makes them a lot different from typical investment clubs.
There is no regulation of clubs of the type just described by the SEC; Securities and Exchange Commission. Real Estate Investment Clubs have seen a phenomenal rise in numbers throughout the US market over the last 3 years. Its is believe that real estate investor and their wanting to become involved in real estate investing were stimulated to form clubs or seek them out so as to take advantage of the many opportunities now existing in the worst real estate markets in decades. And yes there are innumerable opportunities to grow wealth in this real estate market.
Investment clubs on the other hand typically pool resources and capital to make unified decision about where and what to invest in. typically they focus or regulated securities in the traditional sense of the word such as stocks and bonds. They may be regulated depending on the number of members; over 100, and to which state of the Union the domicile.
Now there is another membership organization breaking the ranks of the more well known models aforementioned. This other organization is The RIC-Club. The RIC-Club is unique in several ways when compared with the typical investment club, or even the typical real estate investment clubs. Though similar in entitlement to real estate investment clubs; www.realestateinvestmentclub.com [The RIC-Club] has no affiliation and only minor similarities.
Possibly the one similarity is the fact that The RIC-Club also aims to educate its members about the opportunities existing in the real estate market in which they may participate to build their real estate portfolios and wealth. The primary differences lie in their customer and client bases and the services they offer. For one thing the RIC-Club does not do any kind of investment with or for its members. Though the name often confuses persons, the nomenclature of it is that there is no investment whatsoever as it relates to its clients and/or members. Another major difference is that with the RIC-Club, neither the members or clients have ownership interest in the club, they have no voting rights, they have no real decision making role. Why?
Its very simple. The RIC-Club is a supplier of services and products much like a supermarket, with the component of working to empower its membership financially. It operates, following a set of established rules, existing business model and plan. The idea behind this strategy is again a simple make sense logic. The wealthier and more disposable income the member has, the more they will likely have to spend with the RIC-Club. There is definitely a symbiotic component infused in the clubs' prime directive. Thats what makes the RIC-Club a new Club on the block and distinct people driven Hybrid. The aim it seem, is to ensure that all players within the RIC-Club community benefits mutually in the avenue of economic advantage, leading to growth.
Another typical difference is that the objective of the club is to protect the homeowner, who becomes a member, by formulating networking strategies with which the homeowner can use as an economic advantage. Truly unique are programs such as offering strategy which prevents the Homeowner from losing their homes to the foreclosure process and creating employment opportunities which will generate additional income.
Thus the RIC-Club, focuses not so much of real estate investors, but on the average homeowner, who may thing there is no real place or opportunity for them to be a player in the real estate market. The RIC-Club, seem to be changing that DUD of a concept!!
There is only one known RIC-Club now offering these unique programs. They can be found on the worldwide web at www.realestateinvestmentclub.com & at www.careif.com.
