Trend to Watch
I have received offering packages recently from TIC sponsors with programs other than TICs. These represent two divergent ideas. The first is a move to diversify away from TICs and present other alternative real estate investments in a general fund format. This makes good business sense as the fund approach will expand the companies' distribution network from both a rep and a broker/dealer standpoint. The second is more disturbing as, at first blush without any analysis, the offerings are affilaited debt transactions. This type of program has never given me a comfort level. I will post back after reading a memorandum or two.
