This website is only suitable, intended and available for Accredited Investors who are members of AcreTrader and familiar with, and willing to accept the risks associated with private investments. Investors must be willing to have their status as Accredited Investors verified by AcreTrader Inc., its affiliates or third parties. AcreTrader, Inc. does not endorse any of the opportunities that appear on this website, nor does it make any recommendations regarding the appropriateness of particular opportunities for any investor or with respect to the advisability of investing in general. Each investor must review and evaluate the investments in the investor’s own discretion and determine the suitability of making the particular investment in light of the investor’s own circumstances.
AcreTrader, Inc. and its affiliates do not give or offer any business advice, investment advice, tax or legal advice to anyone using this website. The services provided by AcreTrader are defined herein. All prospective investors must certify that they are Accredited Investors, suitable for this type of illiquid investment, and must acknowledge that they have received and read all investment terms and conditions.
Fluctuations in the value of the assets that are the subject of any investment are to be expected. Additional risks exist due to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, leverage, property operations, business risks, management and environmental liabilities. There is a potential for loss of part or ALL of the investment capital, and each investor should understand that all capital invested may be lost. Investors should only consider these investments if they have no need for liquidity and can bear the risk of losing their entire investment.
Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Any financial projections or returns shown on the site are examples only and Investors should conduct their own due diligence and not rely on the financial assumptions or estimates that are displayed here. Investors should not rely on any forward-looking statements made regarding this opportunity, because such statements are inherently uncertain and involve risks. Words such as “anticipated”, “projected”, “forecasted”, “estimated”, “prospective”, “believes”, “expects”, “plans”, “future”, “intends”, “should”, “can”, “could”, “might”, “potential”, “continue”, “may”, “will” and similar expressions are used to identify these forward-looking statements.
AcreTrader, Inc. does not make investment recommendations, and no communication through this website or in any other medium should be construed as such. Investment opportunities posted on this website are “private placements” of securities that are not publicly traded, are subject to holding period requirements, and are intended for investors who do not need a liquid investment. Private placement investments are NOT bank deposits (and thus NOT insured by the FDIC or by any other federal governmental agency), are NOT guaranteed by AcreTrader, Inc., and MAY lose value. Investors must be able to afford the loss of their entire investment.
AcrePro, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AcreTrader, Inc. that serves as a real estate broker entity and operates in Arkansas under Arkansas Real Estate Commission license #72669.
Acretrader Management, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AcreTrader, Inc. that serves as manager to several real estate entities, each pursuing a real estate investment strategy.
Any financial projections or returns shown on the website are illustrative examples only, and there can be no assurance that any valuations provided are accurate or in agreement with market or industry valuations. Any investment information contained herein has been secured from sources AcreTrader, Inc. believes are reliable, but we make no representations or warranties as to the accuracy of such information and accept no liability therefor. Offers to sell, or the solicitations of offers to buy, any security can only be made through official offering documents that contain important information about risks, fees and expenses. Investors should conduct their own due diligence, not rely on the financial assumptions or estimates displayed on this website, and are encouraged to consult with a financial advisor, attorney, accountant, and any other professional that can help you to understand and assess the risks associated with any investment opportunities.
None of the information contained in the publicly available portions of the Site constitutes a recommendation, solicitation or offer to buy or sell any securities, options or other financial instruments or other assets or provide any investment advice or service. The information and services provided on the Site are not provided to, and may not be used by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction where the provision or use thereof would be contrary to applicable laws, rules or regulations of any governmental authority or where AcreTrader is not authorized to provide such information or services. Some products and services described in the Site may not be available in all jurisdictions or to all members.
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any federal or state securities commission or any other regulatory authority has recommended or approved of the investment or the accuracy or inaccuracy of any of the information or materials provided by or through the website. Direct and indirect purchase of real estate property involves significant risks, including, but not limited to, risks related to the sale of land, market and industry risks and risks specific to a given property. Investments are not bank deposits, are not insured by the FDIC or by any other Federal Government Agency, are not guaranteed by AcreTrader, Inc., and may lose value.
Investments listed on this Site are only suitable for Accredited Investors who are familiar with and willing to accept the high risk associated with private investments. Securities sold through private placements are not publicly traded and, therefore, are less liquid. Additionally, Investors may receive restricted units that may be subject to holding period requirements. Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitments. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. For those reasons, these offerings may be made available only to certain institutional investors and high net worth individuals and entities. As with all alternative investments, investors must meet certain eligibility tests to qualify as purchasers. Currently, and subject in all respects to SEC Regulation D Rule 501, entities must have assets of at least $5 million (or all individual owners meet accredited investor tests). Individuals must have a net worth of more than $1 million excluding primary residence or gross income for each of the last two years of at least $200,000 ($300,000 with spouse) with the expectation of the same income in the current year. See our Risks Statement here for more information.
AT RELATIVE RISK PROFILE
The AT Relative Risk Score (ARRS) is a score we designed internally to judge the relative risk of various offerings reviewed for listing on our site. While we share this score with our users regarding specific offerings, please note the ARRS is not to be relied upon as a single determinant of risk or a measure as to the advisability of investing in a security. Please see our blog post here for a full description of how we categorize risk.
For row and permanent crop land, (2) we sometimes use the term Net Annual Return to refer to Net IRR. Net IRR is a simple expected IRR calculation that adds expected net cash yield (not inclusive of any commodity price growth) plus using a simple 50-year U.S. farmland value Cumulative Average Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.9%. Please see our blog post here for additional details. Please note that this basic calculation does not include any mark-to-market for potential purchase discount, improvements in rent over time, disposition fees, and other costs or unforeseen expenses or income.
For timberland, investments are typically valued primarily based on an assessment of their future income generation potential. The Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model calculates the internal rate of return (IRR), the rate of return on capital deployed in an investment opportunity, for each timberland investment. Investment returns are calculated using capital budgeting techniques for typical forest management practices, and include all the base factor costs, production rates, timber stumpage prices, and land costs.
Note also that any financial projections or returns shown on the site are examples onlyand Investors should conduct their own due diligence and not rely on the financial assumptions or estimates that are displayed here.
INTEGRATION AND SEVERABILITY
GOVERNING LAW; ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER
This Agreement (and any further rules, policies or guidelines incorporated by reference herein) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.
While we hope never to have a dispute with a User, if we do, User and AcreTrader each agree to try for sixty (60) days to resolve it informally. If we collectively fail to resolve such dispute (and unless otherwise agreed in writing by User and AcreTrader), any dispute arising out of or relating to the Agreement, or the breach hereof, shall be finally resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. If parties are unable to select an arbitrator, then AAA shall select the arbitrator. Judgment on any award entered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration User and Acretrader each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring a suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
Where permitted under applicable law, User and AcreTrader each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Unless User and Acretrader both agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
