Tenants-in-Common Advantages

If packaged as a security, TIC ownership carries with it all the advantages of securitized real estate.

In addition, the main advantage of TIC ownership vis-à-vis DST ownership is that the TIC owner, who receives deeded title to the property, has greater say in the day-to-day operation of the property and its eventual sale. This arrangement may be preferred by the investor who is not fully comfortable with a DST structure where the signatory trustee has authority to handle all the matters related to the property, or if the investor owns an especially large portion of a property and would like to retain a higher level of control.
