What is Triple Net Zero Debt?
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE: this info was posted before anyone knew we would be facing a global pandemic in the spring of 2020. So it may be missing crucial information necessary to making an effective investment today. Some of the information in it may be dated, no longer accurate and/or irrelevant. For information on analyzing investments in this new era, see: "How will Covid-19 / Coronavirus Affect my Alternative Investment Portfolio?"
Triple Net Zero Debt, specializes in commercial properties that are leased by a tenant, and the landlord has no maintenace responsibilites. Also, none of the investments hold any debt, which makes them less risky (but also lower returning).
Unfortunately, last year they were already on probation as they had gone down from the minimum of 3 open investments in 2015 to 0 in 2016. they were given a year to bring it back up. When we sampled it this year, they only had one open investment, and it was the same 30 days later when we resampled. So unfortunately the rating has been removed. Hopefully this changes in the future so they can be re-ranked.
Also, they also have one of the highest fee structures in the industry. Per a site representative, the fees are: "10% of distributions up to the investor’s initial capital contribution, and then 35% for everything above that. (In addition, a 1.75% acquisition fee and the 4.75% disposition fee). 2% cost of funds ("pay for the actual cost to raise the money. Cost of the inhouse investor relations person.") + varied costs that are listed on each investment. ("Cost of Property + Legal/Accounting (if any) + Escrow/Title/ALTA/Soils costs (in some cases he Seller pays these costs)." There can be a property management fee (2% on the Regis investment). If TIC, then there is no fee for the tax return and running of the LLC". The representative claims that general and administrative costs (G&A) such as office rent, bookkeeping, advertising, utilities, staff are kept low. For example, the site owns the executive suite the business is located in.
Disadvantages: Fees are very high (as detailed above), $10,000 to $50,000 minimum is high (versus $10,000 average), and currently 1 open investments.

Here are the reviews and rankings for other similar sites.
Code of Ethics: To maintain objectivity, I do not accept any money from any sponsor or platform for anything (including affiliate ads, advertising etc.). See code of ethics for more.
Personal opinion only: All info is my personal opinion only as an investor. I am not a registered financial advisor, attorney or accountant. Always do your own due diligence and consult with your own licensed professionals before making any investment decision. Information is believed to be correct but may have errors, so use at your own risk. If you find an error, please let me know.
Rankings/rating are general: In my opinion, every investor comes from a different risk tolerance and financial situation, so there's no such thing as a single investment or platform that's great for everyone. There are many deals that aggressive investors love, which I won't touch, and vice versa. And every investor has their own way of doing due diligence. I believe there's no one right way to do it.
So, the site rankings/ratings are based on criteria which I feel are important to the broadest range of investors (transparency, volume, bankruptcy protection, etc). And even though I have my own personal, conservative, due diligence method (and talk about how the site's deals measure up in the "deep dive section"), I don't use my personal criteria as a factor in the rankings. So for example, a high ranking/rating doesn't mean that I would personally invest in a site (and vice versa). Click here to see what's in my own portfolio.
