Case Study: Value-Add Properties

When looking to invest in multi-residential real estate, there are three types of properties you’re likely to encounter: Value Add, Newly Constructed and Development. Each category has its own merits and elements requiring specialized knowledge. The case studies below demonstrate the different roles they perform in a portfolio.

newly constructed

Case Study: Newly Constructed

Newly constructed buildings offer immediate positive cash flow, and require lower expenditures for capital improvements and unit turnover compared to older buildings. When looking to acquire a newly constructed property, Equiton looks for buildings in areas with strong market fundamentals that offer stable cash flow and high tenant quality with longer duration tenancies.

development

Case Study: Development

Equiton chooses development instead of acquiring an existing building when it can take less capital to build than to buy, enabling us to produce units at a cost below market value. Through development, we can create new, high-quality units to our desired specifications that offer condo-like feature, amenities, and energy efficiency.
