Why do you only accept accredited investors?    

We file as a 506(c) which allows us to market the offering but is strictly regulated by the SEC to ensure that all participating investors are educated about the risks and financially able to sustain the risk of loss.

What qualifies me as accredited?

Accreditation is as defined by the SEC here.

Do I pay the 3rd party accredited verification fee or does Cedar Creek?

The investor pays for the fee as the certification belongs to each investor. It can even be used for other syndications as well.

Can I use my accreditation verification from a previous syndication?

Yes, if it has not expired.  If it has exceeded expiration, you will need a new 3rd party verification.  We use Parallel Markets.

My accreditation verification expired. Do I need to acquire new verification?


I have my FINRA series 7 license in addition to the CFA charter, and I know the series 7 automatically qualifies me as accredited based on the most recent rule update. Can I just forward you proof of my series 7/CFA, or do I need to get the official verification?

Yes, fill out our Investor Questionnaire with a copy of your FINRA license.

What am I investing in?

You are investing in both the physical asset and also the cash flowing business.

Should I invest as an LLC or an Individual?

Please consult your CPA and legal team.

What tax documents will I receive and when?

You will receive a K-1 after the close of each year. Our syndicated deals are prioritized over the rest of our portfolio. You should expect to receive your K-1 around mid March.

When is the first distribution?

It's safe to assume distributions will not go out any sooner than 6 months after acquisition. This is to confirm that all representations made during the purchase of the facility are confirmed to be accurate and true.

What if you can’t refinance when projected?

Our underwriting and models are conservative, illustrating the refinance event happening around year +/- year 4 but we never underwrite any of our deals to be dependent on a refinance to be profitable. The refinance event is the cherry on top, an accelerator to pull equity from the investment. If the market conditions or business operations don’t support a refinance, we will continue to maximize operations, increase revenue and distribute quarterly cash flow (if applicable) until the environment changes. This means; the investors maintain their favorable positions with a preferred return and the higher % split until 120% cumulative cash on cash returns are met. Disclaimer: each deal is structured different.

Please refer to your offerings Operating Agreement for specifics on structure and distributions.

How do you underwrite your deals?

Our underwriting methods are constantly evolving based on our past successful strategies and refined through current market conditions and lessons learned. Please watch our most recent deep dive into our strategy here.

What can we expect for depreciation? What is the average annual depreciation?

Self storage properties, can also have major differences when it comes to which assets can depreciated faster. For example, climate control systems depreciate faster, larger asphalt surfaces depreciate faster, etc. On average you can expect around 25% of the property can be reallocated to faster depreciation, however we have seen up to 40%.

Based on our first 6 value-add deals and with taking the bonus depreciation in year 1, we have seen anywhere from 0.95%-1.93% in the subsequent years.

Without taking bonus depreciation, the studies indicated that the annual depreciation amounts could be anywhere between 1.67%-2.56%.
