Jonathan Eggert and Jennifer Moseley Detail EB-5 and E-2 Visa Programs in Commercial Property Executive
Commercial real estate developers are looking for new financing options for their upcoming projects in 2024 and beyond. In an article for Commercial Property Executive, Jonathan Eggert and Jennifer Moseley shed light on two potential sources for raising capital that developers may not have considered: the EB-5 immigrant visa investor program and the E-2 visa program.
Programs like EB-5 and E-2 aim to drive economic growth through foreign investment. They can provide developers with a viable source of capital to tap into their unique properties. EB-5 capital is generally less expensive than other funding sources and can be utilized at any layer of the capital stack. On the other hand, the E-2 visa program incentivizes foreign nationals by offering a speedier path to obtaining a visa, although it is restricted to citizens of specific countries.
Eggert and Moseley provide an overview of EB-5 and E-2 funding paths, weigh their pros and cons, and give guidance on courting investors. Read the full article here.
