Investing Into B and C Class Multi-Family Assets With Value-Add Opportunities
We invest into multi-family units that fall into the Class B and Class C categories. We intend to use substantially all of the proceeds of this offering to acquire, manage, operate, leverage, and opportunistically sell multi-family rental properties and development projects through purchasing equity interests in those properties.
Class B Assets
Class B is the next highest asset class, some characteristics include that they tend to be:
- Older than Class A buildings
- Often higher vacancy rates and less affluent tenants;
- Less desirable location than Class A buildings and they can be professionally managed
- There may be some maintenance issues.
Class C Assets
This class is sometimes described as “value add” because with some renovations and improvements assets in this class can be elevated to a higher class. Some characteristics may include:
- Older than 20 years;
- Less desirable locations and at times, poorly managed;
- They have some maintenance issues which need fixing

Multifamily: A Stable Real Estate Class
CBRE forecasts that the Multi-Family Industry will increase by 33% in 2021 and 2022 and that there is a projected 3 million shortfall in Multi-Family units over the next 10 years.
Many people believe that having around 30% of your portfolio allocated to cash-flowing real estate provides some level of resilience to market ups and downs.
Multi-Family Real Estate is considered one of the most stable real estate classes mainly because it can be leveraged typically 70% with debt and with already paying tenets, has built in cash-flow on purchase.
