PARTNER & PASSIVELY CO-OWN WITH US TO BUILD WEALTH

We Help Family Offices and Ultra-Affluent Families Grow their investment and Build Wealth via Cash Flow, Appreciation, and Tax Shelter by Connecting them with Quality Collaborative Multifamily Apartment Equity Investment Opportunities!
 

We offer Turnkey Wealth Building Opportunities for our Passive Equity Investor Partners!

 

Why: Many have a problem finding the right place to invest their capital. Families are looking for a solid place to park their capital so that it regularly pays them a return and appreciates over time. If families don’t invest for cash flow and appreciation it loses value because of inflation. Further, many are unsatisfied with the returns on stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. We help Family Offices and Ultra-Affluent Families by educating them and offering them a place to invest their money so that it goes to work for them and grows, over time, while providing them with unique and phenomenal tax benefits. With Multifamily you are able to grow your wealth exponentially faster than the conventional 401(k), IRA, and stock market investments.  Let us teach you how to passively invest and grow your investment (even while you are sleeping). If you are a Family Office or Ultra-Affluent Family and like the concept of multifamily, we’re here for you and would love to connect to build a quality relationship and get to know what you are looking for in deal specific multifamily investments (Contact us to Connect Below or Here's my calendar link to make finding time convenient). If you know a Family that could benefit from our services please help them and make a quality connection between us.

 

Clear Communication: We’re available to answer any questions you have about your investment. Upon closing, we provide monthly updates/reports so you are always abreast of what’s going on with the asset. You can also contact us anytime!

 

Solid Track Record: Our management team has built a solid multifamily track record in multiple U.S. markets.

 

Quality Deal Specific Investment Opportunities: We are perpetually sourcing top notch deals so that you have high-quality, cash flowing, multifamily investments to partner with us on. The minimum investment is typically $50K to 100K (you can likely use your Self-Directed IRA or 401(k) too – please ask us how). You can start small and grow your wealth with us over time.

 

Strong Underwriting: We’re very conservative when it comes to underwriting. We don’t buy “the appreciation” story and never over leverage our multifamily assets. Location is a key criteria and we are NOT geographically constrained. We believe investors should live where they love and follow the numbers; invest where it makes financial sense. Other key criteria include: projected returns, population, job growth, projected growth, & the current market cycle. We include a healthy “replacement reserves” budget and go “above the line, a.k.a above the NOI” including this as a built-in expense! We leverage agency debt but if we find a phenomenal value add opportunity that requires us to bridge into an agency loan, we make sure that we have one or more extensions available. Our goal is to achieve stabilization within 1 to 3 years of ownership. We look for cash flow and light to moderate value-add opportunities that will provide even stronger cash flow and drastically appreciate upon stabilization and over time.

 

Control: Unlike other investments we have a significant amount of control over the outcome.  Our model is to add significant value and improve operations these are 2 factors we have control over; both dramatically increase the value and, distributional cash flow, of the asset in a relatively short time.

 

Who Do YOU know that WE should know? Please connect with us if you are, or know, a Family Office or an Ultra-Affluent Family that has likes and trusts the multifamily space and would like to learn more and leverage our expertise pertaining to multifamily syndication.  We CAN help!

WHAT WE DO

THE PROCESS

Initially we start by conducting a needs-analysis to better understand what you are looking for deal specific multifamily investments.  After the analysis is completed, we use that information to deliver collaborative opportunities that are a match and will support the long-term goals of your family office. 

 

We filter through thousands of multifamily investments each year. Further, we meticulously and conservatively underwrite these deals until we find one that fits our strict criteria.

 

We are laser focused on cash flowing, light to moderate value add, Class B & C Multifamily Apartment Communities with a purchase price of $1.3MM-$30MM.

 

Target Markets:

Areas are mostly in the South and Midwest and must fit all of the following…

 

A minimum of 50 Units - the more the merrier. A cash flowing value-add &/or upside play is ideal, but no major re-positions.

 

Said property may have below market rents, is perhaps mismanaged, in need of some renovations, &/or the vacancy rate might be less than desirable.

 

The buildings we seek tend to be C to B type assets located in areas that are rapidly improving, with a minimal MSA of 250K giving us the opportunity to purchase an undervalued asset, in a good area, allowing us to create value within 1-3 years.

 

We’re most interested in an initial cap rate of 6-8+%, on actual financial BUT - depending on location, the amount of value add, & operational upside available a lower cap might be acceptable. After stabilization we are looking for a, solid cash on cash return for our Equity investor partners.

 

We prefer the deal to qualify for agency Freddie/Fannie/HUD type financing; however, we can bridge into a good value add opportunity.

 

Please send us a message (Contact us to Connect Below or Here's my calendar link to make coordinating a time easy) so that we can establish/continue our relationship and answer any questions you may have. Let us know your goals and investment mandates.

 

We will reach out to properly establish and develop a relationship. Then we can notify you of new opportunities as they arise. You Review & Analyze the opportunity, Vet the General Partners and Management Team, & Contact us with questions.

 

Reserve your investment amount. Once you Review the Deal Package & select an opportunity you will receive an Executive Summary and an Operating Agreement. Please feel free to Consult your legal and accounting professionals.

 

Fund the asset-specific LLC via a title co. &/or closing attorney depending on what state we are in. Everything is handled professionally by the appropriate professional/s. We use an experienced SEC Attorney to draft the subscription agreement, operating agreement, and PPM for all of our transactions.

 

After closing you'll receive monthly/quarterly reports & you can reach out with questions at anytime.

WHY APARTMENTS

Better Returns Than Mutual Funds, Bonds, 401(k), IRA, & the Stock Market,:

We have a huge demand for affordable housing in the US and it’s NOT going away!


Real estate has outperformed the stock market for almost two decades.


Multifamily assets provide us the opportunity to hire professionals that conduct cost segregation studies. This identifies, and reclassifies, the asset allowing us to compress the depreciation time for more favorable taxation purposes. Cost Segregation reduces income tax obligations with the primary goal being to identify all construction-related costs that can be depreciated over a shorter tax life. Typically we can shorten depreciation to 5, 7 &/or 15 years. This means you are, legally, allowed to keep more of your income.

WHY CHOOSE MULTIFAMILY APARTMENTS?

Safe Consistent Returns That Outperform the Stock Market. Real estate has outperformed the stock market for almost 2 decades, it’s MUCH less volatile, and virtually recession proof providing safe consistent returns.

Virtually Recession Proof Performance  

Apartment Communities offer investors a low risk profile! For the past 2 decades, commercial multifamily apartments have been much less volatile than the stock exchange and single family residential assets.

 

Thinking back to the Great Recession, delinquency for Freddie Mac residential loans, peaked at 4.0%! Conversely, commercial multifamily apartment loans were only 0.4%; therefore, even at its peak, the Multifamily delinquency rate was 90% < the single family residential rate.

 

While no investment is warranted, it's quite possible that there's no alternative investment class in the world with such a low risk profile, unique tax benefits, and above-average returns.

 

Tax Advantages
Apartments offer unique tax advantages that other investments including: bonds, precious metals, businesses, and stocks are not associated with. The US Government wants us to provide affordable multifamily housing; therefore, our Equity partners are able to benefit from legal tax benefits (avoidance and deferment). This includes: accelerated depreciation through cost segregation, tax-free refinances, tax deferred profit at sale via 1031 Exchanges.

 Generational Wealth and Passive Cash Flow

Instead of working towards Cash Flow, and putting money to work, many are working on building this pile of cash. The problem with saving, alone, as the path to accumulating true wealth is that we live in an inflammatory setting. Inflation has a huge impact and is known for devaluing our savings. Savings alone is undoubtedly a losing game as it offers no leverage and suffers from the devastation of inflation. The combined impact of inflation and attained interest earned by a savings account, even with compounding interest, is negative for savers.

 

Conversely, passively investing in an apartment community is one of the best ways to create, preserve, and grow wealth and passive cash flow/income. We have provided investment opportunities with a solid average cash on cash return, by improving operations and forcing appreciation, over the life of the investment. That means you’ll get paid quarterly and appreciate profits at sale &/or refinance. The goal is to Edify your Equity and make your money work for you.

 

We put together lucrative opportunities and provide safe consistent returns for our Equity Partners. You’ll collect consistent cash distributions while your money works towards future capital appreciation of the asset. Multifamily will help you create generational wealth, pay you quarterly, and increase in value. Further, multifamily allows you to pass wealth to your children &/or loved ones.
