Direct Invest -500 East Main LLC Tenants in Common is a TIC. A TIC investment is defined as a property that is sold to multiple investors who then own fractional interests in the property as co-owners. The co-owners enjoy their share of the “pro rata” share of the net income (or expenses), appreciation, and share of the proceeds at the sale of the property. Tenants in common investors are not involved in the day to day management of the property but do retain certain other rights regarding the management of the property.
It’s important to understand the potential risks, costs, and advantages of a TIC before investing. Generally offered as a 1031 exchange tax deferral, financial professionals often misrepresent the risks and benefits of these investments. Moreover, the investments are often marketed to conservative and retired investors. TIC investments also typically pay a high commission, sometimes more than 10%, which may explain another reason a financial advisor may recommend clients to invest in them.
Is a TIC investment suitable for you?
The financial advisor should ensure that the investment that is being recommended is suitable for their clients. Liquidity needs, time horizon, risk tolerance, age, income, are just a few categories an advisor should take into account prior to recommending any investment. The brokerage firm must ensure that due diligence was completed at every level of each investment.
