Value Add Properties - Commercial Real Estate Investments
Value add properties are riskier than core properties, but offer the possibility of greater profits. This is done by renovating or re-purposing the property so that greater value can be obtained. Investors who choose to invest in value add properties carefully examine the property to determine how they can increase the cash flow as quickly and inexpensively as possible.
Some examples of value add improvements include:
  • Cosmetic improvements that update the building and increase appeal to higher quality tenants
  • Improving management
  • Lowering expenses
  • Raising rent to market rates
Once the investor has successfully increased the cash flow of a value add property they may either hold the property long-term or sell it in order to capture the increased equity. This equity can then in turn be used as leverage on a new property.

Call one of our friendly agents if you are interested in building an investment portfolio. They will show you opportunities and guide you through purchasing, financing, closing and leasing properties. Your success is our success!
Warmest Regards,
