Private real estate investments of the type listed with RealtyShares are not traded on a public market and involve transferability restrictions. As a result, your shares in these investments cannot be easily traded, sold, or otherwise converted into cash. Each investment has a unique projected "hold period," which is the approximate period of time that investors can expect to hold the investment prior to any "exit" or maturity date. These hold periods vary by investment, and can vary from less than 6 months to greater than 5 years; they are also estimates only, and actual hold periods may be longer or shorter than the periods initially projected. Expected hold periods are generally described on the "Overview" tab of any particular investment opportunity. Investors should review such expected hold periods carefully and consider whether such hold periods are suitable for them in view of their own investment objectives.
There are not, of course, any guarantees with respect to any of the investment opportunities listed on RealtyShares, and there can be no assurance that actual return rates will meet those that were projected or even that investors will have all of their investment capital returned to them. Investors should review closely the "Risk Factors" described in the investor package for any particular investment opportunity.
