Our streak of above pro forma marketplace exits continues! We are pleased to announce our ninth realized offering on the marketplace with the closing of Urban Green’s Burnside project earlier this summer. Investors earned a 66.5% The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) is the rate at which each invested dollar is projected to grow for each period it is invested. It differs from other metrics in that it accounts for the concept of the “time value of money”, or the fact that a dollar received and reinvested elsewhere today is worth more than a dollar expected... More and a 1.7x In commercial real estate, the equity multiple is defined as the total cash distributions received from an investment, divided by the total equity invested.

Here’s how this compares to the average of our original pro forma returns:
|XIRR / IRR||Equity Multiple||In commercial real estate, the hold period is the time between when the investment is made and when the property sells. Since real estate investments are illiquid, investors are unable to sell their investment before the end of that hold period, unlike public stocks which can be sold at any time.
