Who can Invest? What is an Accredited Investor?
Bay Housing Investments projects are open to approved, accredited investors. Our projects are structured under Rule 506(c) of Regulation D. Investors will be required to verify their accredited status through a third party such as a CPA, financial advisor, attorney, or a service like www.verifyinvestor.com. You can begin the certification process here:
To be an accredited investor, a person must have an annual income exceeding $200,000 ($300,000 for joint income) for the last two years with the expectation of earning the same or a higher income in the current year. An individual must have earned income above the thresholds either alone or with a spouse over the last two years. The income test cannot be satisfied by showing one year of an individual’s income and the next two years of joint income with a spouse.
A person is also considered an accredited investor if they have a net worth exceeding $1 million, either individually or jointly with his spouse. The SEC also considers a person to be an accredited investor if they are a general partner, executive officer, or director for the company that is issuing the unregistered securities.
