Investing large sums of money can be stressful. You want to be sure that your investment is as safe as possible, especially if there is more than money at stake. Houston EB5 was founded by immigrants who understand your concerns. We care as much about your immigration success and investment as you do, so we use proven business strategies to make your EB-5 green card investment as stable as possible.
Vertical Integration Protects Your EB-5 Green Card Investment
We are not only an EB-5 regional center, but we’re also the Principal behind every project that we’re raising EB-5 funds for through our award-winning real-estate developer, DC Partners. We always place our own equity in projects, so we have skin in the game. The reason why we’ve been able to repay 100% of EB-5 capital to investors is due to the fact that we always place EB-5 equity above our own. We can only receive our share of profits or recover our original investment only after our EB-5 investors have been paid their returns or have received their original investment back. By going with Houston EB5, it is truly a win-win situation — we can only succeed when our EB-5 investors do.
Most other regional centers function as financing intermediaries. You can think of them as banks. They raise capital from foreigners in exchange for paying them a small return (most often less than half of 1%). The regional centers then loan the foreign syndicated funds to project developers at rates typically near 8–10%. This means that regional centers can make as much as a 9% spread of EB-5 capital per year. Factoring in a $50,000,000 EB-5 raise, that could be as much as $4,500,000 per year for at least 5 years. That totals $22,500,000 in sunk financing costs that most other regional centers add to a project. This creates an inherent risk in making the project more likely to default.
Why Adopt a Vertically Integrated Model?
Our project’s have lower cost financing than that of the typical EB-5 regional center’s project. We prefer to keep the costs in our projects as low as possible because at the end of the day, we’re a developer through DC Partners. If the costs of a project are too high, then the risk increases exponentially.
It is our belief that EB-5 investors should align themselves with a vertically integrated regional center and developer so that their EB-5 investments are as safe as possible.
Investing the capital required for an EB-5 green card can be a significant risk for many people looking to enter the United States. There is more than just profit riding on the investment, so it is a good idea to find an investment that’s as stable as possible.
Houston EB5 was founded by immigrants to the U.S. with an aim towards helping future immigrants achieve their goals. We understand how much is riding on a successful EB-5 investment. We are committed to helping foreign investors find fast, safe, and reliable ways to immigrate legally. Our goal is to provide EB-5 investors who want to immigrate with better opportunities for investment than what is currently in the market. One way we do this is by using our vertically integrated business model to keep projects’ costs as low as possible.
