WE SPECIALIZE IN REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT AND EB-5 INVESTMENTS
Fields of study
American Life, Inc. believes that managing the real estate development lifecycle with a single team leads to better investment outcomes. American Life, Inc. manages all of its properties except for the hotels. In that case, given the infrastructure required to operate hotels, American Life partners with some of the world’s leading management companies including Marriott International and Hilton Worldwide. As real estate is still a local business in many ways, we may also work with local operators or consultants for projects outside of Seattle. Our EB-5 Investors rely on American Life to develop projects that satisfy the EB-5 requirements set forth by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Ensuring a project’s compliance with all USCIS job creation requirements and other regulations is our top priority and begins at the earliest stages of our analysis. American Life seeks the highest quality development projects in irreplaceable locations in order to minimize the operational and market risk inherent of any real estate investment. While we cannot control the markets, we can mitigate the effects of an economic slowdown by building the most desirable projects in a city’s most sought after locations. Unlike most EB-5 real estate investment providers, American Life structures its EB-5 investments as equity. Our EB-5 investors are limited partners with ownership in a real estate asset. While this means that we cannot guarantee the return of an EB-5 investment on a pre-specified date, our EB-5 investors benefit from participation in the project’s operating cash flows and profits at sale alongside us. For example, our hotel projects pay investors roughly 5% per annum or more.
American Life is not an intermediary looking to place our investors’ capital with a separate real estate developer for a fee. Our EB-5 investors invest directly in projects developed and managed by the American Life team. We know that our investors rely on us and we directly manage all aspects of the projects.
