Silver Star Properties Non-Traded REIT Investment Losses

Silver Star Properties

Erez Law is currently investigating brokers nationwide who recommended their clients invest in Silver Star Properties, a non-traded real estate investment trust (REIT).

Silver Star Properties owned 44 commercial properties in Texas, which are reportedly worth millions of dollars. 

Just like other non-traded REITs, Silver Star Properties is an illiquid investment that does not trade on the public securities exchange and is subject to extreme market volatility. Due to its illiquid nature, many investors are unable to sell the investments. Additionally, it generates higher than normal commissions for brokers who recommend it, which is perhaps one reason that brokers recommend this investment to their clients. 

Silver Star Properties and other non-traded REITs are suitable for investors who are looking for long-term investments and a higher risk tolerance. 

Hartman SPE LLC faced struggles, including the company’s management failure, tenant and cashflow issues, allocation of resources, and delayed SEC filings. 

In September 2023, Hartman SPE LLC, an indirect subsidiary of Silver Star Properties, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Hartman SPE LLC is seeking to refinance and shift its asset class to pay creditors. As a result of the bankruptcy filing, Silver Star Properties has suspended distributions to investors. Additionally, it is likely that investors will lose their principal investment as a result of the Hartman SPE LLC bankruptcy filing. 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating allegations of violations of fiduciary and other duties to Silver Star by Hartman SPE LLC.
