Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS VESDOR?

Vesdor is a platform where anyone interested in real estate investing can “get in the game” with an investment as small as $5,000. Vesdor specializes in high-capitalization-rate income-producing properties that can also appreciate in value. The focus is on single-family residential rental properties in highly targeted markets. Vesdor offers you no-hassle passive investment opportunities with total cash-on-cash return rates projected to be 8-12% per year. Most investment platforms require people to be rich in order to invest, Vesdor levels the playing field – all investors are welcome, wealthy or not. In each property, you invest alongside of Vesdor, and you are assured that Vesdor will not make any money until you make money (a minimum preferred return). Vesdor is NOT a fund, and Vesdor is NOT a platform for listed properties that are brokered by third parties.

How to Join

CAN ANYONE JOIN?

Any suitable individual who is at least 21 years old can join Vesdor.

WHAT IS THE FEE FOR MEMBERSHIP?

The membership fee is $199 per year.  If you are an active Vesdor investor (i.e., you have invested in the past 12 months), Vesdor will waive your annual renewal fee.

WHAT DO I GET AS A VESDOR MEMBER?

You get to invest in Vesdor properties . . .
and your annual membership will renew for free as long as you are an active investor.

 

We do all the work. We find the high-return properties, we fix them up, we find the qualified tenants, and we handle all the property management.

 

You choose the properties you want to invest in and earn 8-12% returns* on your money. You gain the right to invest alongside of us and start earning income right away. You can start investing with as little as $5,000.

 

The Vesdor team has been doing this successfully for about 15 years. In just the past two years, we have invested in about 200 under-performing properties and transformed them into high-return cash flowing investments.

 

 

* Annual returns are estimated based on total returns from income and appreciation, assuming a five-year holding period and 2-3% annual appreciation. Investors should be prepared to assume the risk of real estate investing, including the potential complete loss of their investment. Vesdor provides additional details and disclosures in association with each investment opportunity.

HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?

Join by paying your annual membership fee and creating an account.

 

The next step is to fill out the “suitability questionnaire” which helps us understand your investment situation, so you can focus on our best opportunities for you and your objectives. Together, we will make sure that your investment situation and objectives are aligned with our opportunities, and then you can start investing.

WHY DOES VESDOR REQUIRE MEMBERSHIP?

Vesdor operates as an investment partner. Vesdor investment properties are selected individually by Vesdor, and Vesdor participates in the investments alongside its members. Vesdor is NOT simply a platform for listed properties that are brokered by third parties. Vesdor also reviews prospective investors to ensure they are suitable. For all of those reasons, Vesdor requires membership to gain access to its opportunities.

How To Invest

WHEN CAN I START INVESTING?

Upon becoming a member, you will receive a suitability questionnaire to ensure that Vesdor investments are a good fit for you – generally meaning that you can reasonably afford to invest and tolerate the risk profile of Vesdor investments. Typically, Vesdor will get to know you as a prospective investor while you explore the resources on our website and other Vesdor educational opportunities. Vesdor will notify you at the completion of this process and grant you access to the Vesdor investment opportunities.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM INVESTMENT?

$5,000 is the minimum allowable investment in most cases.  However, investors may invest any amount up to the remaining amount to be funded on a property.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO INVESTING IN A PROPERTY?

1. Review our properties and examine the details including the projected return rates.

2. Enter an Investment Pledge on a Specific Property — from as little as $5,000 up to the total unfunded amount of the property’s purchase price, OR

Enter an Investment Indication in our Property Queue.  This is a non-binding way to secure your spot to invest in an upcoming property that meets your objectives.

3. Review the investment documents, and sign the subscription agreement electronically utilizing our DocuSign system.

4. Securely fund your investment via a check, bank wire, or automated clearing house (ACH) transaction.

5. Sit back, relax and collect the cash distributions.

HOW MANY PROPERTIES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE PLATFORM AT A GIVEN TIME?

The properties made available on the Vesdor platform are individually selected by Vesdor management. The number of properties available at any given time can vary, based on market conditions, platform demand, and other variables.  Members may also submit an Investment Indication, so they are in queue for the next qualifying property when it becomes available.

ARE THERE ADDITIONAL FEES TO INVEST?

There is a nominal transaction fee (typically $99-$149) associated with each individual investment. The transaction fees are applied toward the structuring, review, and processing costs associated with each overall transaction.

HOW ARE INVESTMENT FUNDS TRANSFERRED?

Vesdor allows for paper checks, wire transfers, or ACH transactions.  Follow the instructions on the platform to execute the transaction as desired.  

CAN I INVEST THROUGH MY IRA?

Yes. Vesdor can accept investments from a self-directed IRA.  

CAN I INVEST THROUGH AN LP, LLC OR TRUST?

Yes. You can invest through an LP, LLC or a trust as long as you provide the proper documentation to show that you are empowered to make decisions on behalf of the investing entity.

Generating Returns

WHAT ARE THE RATES OF RETURN?

Vesdor targets properties that yield a Total Return (cash-on-cash) for its investors of 8-12% annualized.  The Income-Only Return rates, which exclude returns from the projected appreciation of its properties, may vary from the Total return rates but are also targeted at 8-12%.

HOW DO I MAKE MONEY FROM VESDOR INVESTMENTS?

Investors generate their returns from their pro rata share of the net rental income and share in appreciation (or potentially depreciation) of the property. See investment documentation for details on the transaction structure, cash flow streams, and disclosures about the individual property.

HOW ARE VESDOR DEALS STRUCTURED?

Vesdor investors own equity shares of Limited Liability Companies that own income-producing residential rental properties.  Vesdor deals are structured so investors generate a minimum cash return (typically 8% annualized) before Vesdor can earn any of its “promote” (Vesdor’s compensation for managing the property and related issues).

HOW LONG DOES EACH INVESTMENT LAST?

Property investments are generally structured to have a five-year time horizon.  However, the initial investment term may be either shortened or extended by Vesdor, so that the company has the ability to be opportunistic in optimizing the total return associated with the property for the investors.   

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY INVESTMENT TO START CASH FLOWING?

Vesdor holds your investment funds until the property is fully funded, which can occur within a week or it may take up to 90 days. Vesdor would guide investors to expect a typical time frame for complete funding to be 30 – 45 days.  Once fully funded, most properties will begin cash flowing immediately.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY DISTRIBUTIONS?

Vesdor investment entities will distribute cash flows on a periodic basis, typically quarterly. In most cases, distributions will be electronically transferred into the account that you designate. If you require an alternative method, you may contact Vesdor to make that request.

WHAT KIND OF UPDATES WILL I RECEIVE ABOUT MY INVESTMENT?

You will have access to an online dashboard at all times.  The dashboard summarizes your investments and distributions by property. You will also receive quarterly financial statements for the property. 

WHO MAKES DECISIONS FOR THE INVESTMENT ENTITY?

Vesdor, LLC is the manager of the LLC investment entity that owns the property. The managers of Vesdor, LLC make the decisions on behalf of the partnership.

ARE THESE INVESTMENTS SECURE?

The track record of the Vesdor team is strong, but historical performance is not necessarily an indication of future returns. These investments contain risks up to and including a total loss of your investment.  You should review the detailed risks and disclosure statements associated with each property investment that you consider. Investments in Vesdor properties should be made only to the extent that they are affordable and the risk is tolerable. Investors are encouraged to consult with professional financial, legal, and tax advisors before making final investment decisions.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TARGET FUNDING AMOUNT FOR A PROPERTY IS NOT MET?

If you invest in a property where the target funding is not met your funds will be returned.

WHAT IF MORE MONEY IS NEEDED FOR A PROPERTY?

Vesdor property investments are structured so that the purchase price includes an initial contingency fund. Typically, the property will also include: 1) a one-year guarantee on major mechanical equipment (furnace, water heater, air conditioner), 2) a six-month guarantee on repairs made prior to the initial transaction, and 3) a three-month vacancy guarantee. If events arise that require additional funds beyond what is available in the contingency fund, Vesdor will make a pro rata capital call to investors in the property. If necessary, Vesdor may fulfill the remaining capital requirement on its own, in which case investors may face some dilution of their investment and/or a lien may be attached to the property.   

CAN I GET MY MONEY OUT EARLY?

Investors should view these investments as long-term and illiquid in nature.  That said, there are mechanisms by which investors can seek to sell their investment either back to Vesdor or to a third party.  Investors should be aware that there are specific terms with which these transactions must comply. Executing such a sale may be time consuming. Vesdor will make a good faith effort to assist investors who need to exit their investment; however, the company cannot guarantee that such an exit will be achieved.  

Vesdor Operations

HOW DOES VESDOR MAKE MONEY?

Vesdor is compensated through a “promote,” which basically means that after the investors generate a minimum “hurdle rate” return, Vesdor will get a percentage of the remaining cash flows. This approach ensures that Vesdor does not make any money on a property until you make money on that property. Vesdor may also charge an additional fee in association with the sale of the property at the end of the investment term.  Vesdor’s target model for its properties utilizes an 8% hurdle rate and a 25% promote, but investors should review the investment documentation for each property for specific details.

Vesdor also charges a membership fee to help cover a portion of its baseline operations.  See “WHY DOES VESDOR REQUIRE MEMBERSHIP?” for additional information.

IS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE?

Vesdor takes all the appropriate steps to ensure that your personal information is secure. The company utilizes PCI compliant third party services (such as bill.com) to manage your bank and credit card information. As such, Vesdor does not directly collect or maintain such information. Vesdor may collect personal information, such as your Social Security number and birthdate in order to comply with government regulations (such as “Know Your Customer” and “Anti-money Laundering” regulations) from the SEC, IRS and other agencies. However, Vesdor does not share, sell, or otherwise redistribute any personal information provided by you in association with you membership and/or investments.  See the Privacy Policy on the website for details.

Taxes

WHAT TAX DOCUMENTS WILL I RECEIVE AND WHAT ARE MY FILING OBLIGATIONS?

You will receive the IRS Form K-1 after the end of the calendar year.

DOES VESDOR WITHHOLD TAXES?

No. You will be responsible for the tax liability resulting from the earnings on your Vesdor investments.
