  • 1. How does investing work with CREC?

    The first step is to take a realistic look at the amount you wish to invest and how long you need until you realize profits. Also, you will need to know whether a property will require tenant improvements or additional investment.

    Based on those amounts, CREC can help you determine the type of cannabis property that may be most suited to you.
