[Q] Should I go visit the regional center's operator/general partner and the specific project site?
By all means, if you have the time. Go and compare as much as you can. From our experiences, it definitely doesn't hurt if you can go see things personally. Although choosing a particular EB-5 project is a lot more important than choosing a car, we think it's similar: if you go and take a look at a car you are considering, you will have a lot better "feel" for the product. But if you are going to take a look at a hybrid car, you shouldn't go there expecting the car to drive like a BMW; in other words, you should have good ideas on what the product is designed to deliver before you view and take a test drive.
I would say evaluating the people who run the EB-5 project and the track record is more important than evaluating the project itself.
