Our Expert Team
Our management team has experience in houses, apartments, commercial real estate assets and real estate notes. They have personally succeeded in investing in these areas within their own portfolios. Now they are poised to do it again and again on a larger scale and offer the same investment opportunity to other qualified investors.
We developed a unique system that provides our managers with the opportunity to take advantage of the best assets available at the time, with the goal of yielding the highest return at the lowest risk. This could include houses, apartments, commercial real estate assets or real estate notes.
What We Invest In and Why
This fund was uniquely written so we can invest in real state lien notes secured by investment property with a maximum loan to value of 75%. We can also invest in physical assets such as houses, apartment complexes and other commercial assets with either a 30% equity or a 10% cap rate. Most funds available to investors are limited to either notes or physical assets. Our unique design allows us to purchase assets when prices are low and sell when are prices are high. We believe this will allow us to produce high yields for our investors at any point in the market cycle, while minimizing risk.
Example: It is possible for housing prices to be strong, while apartment prices are weak in the same city and vice versa. Likewise, when housing prices are high and good deals on them are scarce, lending and buying notes is very lucrative.
What sets ILS funds apart from others is our unique infrastructure. They are masterfully designed to take advantage of the real estate market cycles.
Attentive to Market Cycles
We invest by keeping a close watch on the market cycles. Real estate sales volumes and prices fluctuate greatly over time, and different asset classes fluctuate at different times as well.
Knowing the market cycles and having over a decade of experience and knowledge in them allows us to plan ahead and invest wisely.
