Sales data is not always received for all nontraded REITs, nontraded BDCs, Interval Funds, nontraded Closed-End Funds or Private Placements, including 1031 sales, each month. Blue Vault is adding more offerings each month in an attempt to gather 100% of all sales in these product offering categories. Monthly sales are provided to Blue Vault by each sponsor and are therefore not guaranteed to be accurate.

However, Blue Vault estimates the listed sales numbers to be at least 98% of all industry sales.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years.  I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs.  The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings.  This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
