Value Added Investment Opportunities

Value Added Investment Opportunities

Everyone has heard of a fixer upper. Many investors are looking for hidden off-market properties with the potential to increase its value over time. Applying this concept to private equity real estate is known as value added investing.

Value added investors take on more risk in order to attain higher returns. The return will come in the form of appreciation. Many wait a significant amount of time before gaining appreciation and investors may not see a return for at least 2-3 years.

San Francisco’s median sales price is $1.6 million. Homes listed under the $1 million range are noteworthy. Opportunistic properties often have little to no cash flow at acquisition but have the potential to produce a tremendous amount of cash flow once the value has been added.

Value added properties may have the potential to expand the square footage by adding an extra bedroom. You can also create an additional dwelling unit that includes a small kitchenette and bathroom, which is perfect for an income producing unit. 

Oftentimes, these properties require physical improvements and may be rundown due to owners lacking money to make the improvements. Landlords and investors could also decrease vacancy rate in a multi unit building or increase rent when there is a change in tenancy. 

With the right physical upgrades, management, and effective marketing strategy, investors have the potential to achieve high returns. It is important to form a relationship with a real estate agent who knows your city and has access to the best opportunities. Many of these properties may be undergoing upgrades and repairs, and can be purchased off-market.
