After you sign up for an investor club list, when a deal is under contract and open to limited partners, you will likely get an email titled [NEW DEAL ALERT].
Most operators will schedule a follow up webinar or Q&A session so this is your first opportunity to review a general overview of the deal.
Here are some factors to consider:

– Is it an area that has great population growth and job/economic diversity?
– What kind of neighborhood is it in?
– Is it close to any employers?

– Is it a light value add?
– Is it a heavy lift?

If not at that moment, when will it be issued?
These are some of the key things you’ll see on a new deal alert. It’s basically the first communication that goes out that there’s a deal on the horizon. Sometimes in the first email, you will get the opportunity to “soft reserve”. You aren’t committed to the deal at this point, but you are just saving your spot since some deals can fill up in just a few hours.
