Acquisition Practices

Each asset undergoes a thorough due diligence process to confirm the physical and legal status of the property and to confirm valuations to ensure achievable investment strategies.


Early in the asset evaluation phase, the debt and equity financing strategy is developed based on a number of factors such as property type, magnitude of renovations, expected hold period and investor objectives. Each asset is typically held 5-10 years depending on its exact business plan.


INVESTMENT DISCIPLINE


Asset selection involves a systematic, routine evaluation to identify favorable demand characteristics, i.e., job and population growth, demographic shifts, supply absorption rates and positive local legislation.


Markets with supply constraints receive most favorable underwriting. Markets with signs of oversupply such as surplus land, changes in zoning and increases in building permits are avoided.

Value-Add Strategy

Think of it as a business rather than a building. The more income it generates, the more it is worth. When we purchase an apartment complex, we are looking for specific opportunities to increase the cashflow in different areas. These are called “Value Plays” or “Value Adding Components”.

VALUE PLAYS WE CAPITALIZE ON

  • Mismanagement caused by owner self-managing

  • Poor supervision of management companies

  • Deferred maintenance

  • High vacancies

  • Below market rents

Some examples of value-add plays we implement:

  • Improve curb appeal by improving landscaping, adding dog parks, carports, etc. Residents will pay more when a property is in better condition and has amenities.

  • Purchasing a property that is 10% or more under current market rents. This gives us the opportunity to increase rents and immediately increase the value of the property.

  • Implement a water and sewage bill-back system to charge the residents for actual usage. Most apartment owners pay for all the water. When we bill back the residents it helps offset expenses and increase the cash flow. Through this system residents tend to become more frugal and will decrease overall operating expenses.

  • Improve unit interiors with new paint, appliances, countertops, and floors.

  • Adding a coin laundry facility to the complex.
