Build to Rent Syndications with Ruben Greth

Have you ever heard of someone who raises capital not for his own but for other people’s deals?

Most of us are so focused on raising capital for our own deals that when we do it for others, we tend to make a lot of mistakes, in illegal manners, most of which aren’t really known.

So today, we bring you Ruben Greth, whose success started from just thinking about putting together all the sponsors and capital raisers he’s interviewed and make money from it. Tune in to learn how to build-to-rent syndications the legal way.

Ruben Greth has a popular podcast about raising money for multifamily syndication called the Capital Raiser Show where he learns from the best multifamily syndicators in the country.

He has partnered in $5M of capital-raising partnerships. He got his start by bringing joint venture capital to successfully raise $625K for small multifamily deals during the post-crash buying frenzy in Phoenix.

Ruben partners with multiple select syndicators bringing equity, advisory, and investor management. He has bachelor degrees in Chemistry and Spanish.

In this episode, Ruben spreads awareness regarding build-to-rent syndication as he shares how he and his partners are able to properly raise capital for other multifamily sponsors in a legal way.

Key Takeaways:

“The more that I’ve kind of spent time looking and analyzing this build-to-rent model, which has a little bit of a different risk profile than a multifamily syndication, the more that it’s making a lot more sense to let’s go full-board on the build to rent because everybody’s making a ton more money.” – Ruben Greth

“When you raise money from people that are completely passive, that have no active, ongoing duty in your business, then that technically becomes a security.” – Ruben Greth
