Vinebrook Homes Trust – Secondary Sales Price may Suggest Losses for Investors 

The White Law Group is investigating securities claims involving the liability that broker dealers may have for improperly recommending non-traded REITs such as Vinebrook Homes Trust  to  investors. 

NexPoint, based in Dallas, Texas, provides several types of real estate investment offerings, including publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs), Regulation D private placements, 1031 exchanges, closed-end funds, interval funds, and a business development company (BDC). 

The company filed a form D to raise capital from investors for the offering Vinebrook Homes Trust Inc., a non-traded REIT. The total offering amount sold was $118,457,157. 

According to Rialto, and secondary market for non-traded investments, shares of Vinebrook Homes Trust are currently listed to trade at $52 per share. The company’s current Net Asset Value (NAV) is $63.04. 

Vinebrook Homes Trust and the Risks of Non-traded REITs  

Many investors are not fully aware of the problems and risks associated with illiquid, high risk, non-traded REITs before purchasing them. 

Non traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) are complex and inherently risky products. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, REITs are significantly more complex and often better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors. 

Liquidity Issues 

Non-traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) can face several liquidity issues due to their unique characteristics and structure. They don’t trade on a public exchange like traditional stocks. As a result, there is no established secondary market for these investments, making it difficult for investors to sell their shares before the REIT’s liquidation event, which typically occurs after several years. 

Non-traded REITs often have lock-up periods, during which investors are prohibited from selling their shares. These lock-up periods can extend for several years, further restricting liquidity and preventing investors from accessing their capital when needed. 

Another problem often associated with REIT recommendations is the high sales commissions brokers typically earn for selling them– as high as 15%.  Brokers have an obligation to make investment recommendations that are consistent with their clients risk tolerance, net worth, investment objectives and experience in the market. 

Unfortunately, in many cases, the high sales commission may provide some brokers with enough incentive to make unsuitable investment recommendations. 

Due Diligence 

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Firms that fail to do so may be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
