The Company formed on February 11, 2019, as a Delaware limited liability company.
The Company is a development stage real estate investment vehicle, organized to acquire, hold, lease, and dispose of real estate assets. The Company intends to invest in a diversified portfolio of residential single family and multi-family properties and commercial properties (mixed-use, single-use and triple-net) throughout the U.S., initially focusing on the New York and New Jersey real estate markets, which is where the Company is currently located. The Company anticipates its initial transactions will be located in the Newark, New Jersey area. In addition, the Company intends to invest in distressed properties that meet the Company’s criteria and thresholds for risk and potential profitability. The Company’s portfolio of properties may be collectively referred to herein as the “Fund.”

The Company was organized to acquire, renovate, manage, hold, dispose of, and/or rent residential (single and multi-units) and commercial (mixed-use, single-use and triple-net) properties. The Company’s strategy is designed to provide investors with a return on their investment through pro rata distributions of net profits, if any. The Company intends to invest solely in assets that present material “value added” opportunities or existing stabilized cashflow. There can be no assurance given that any assets will ultimately be acquired on terms that are advantageous to the Company, if at all. Investors and the Company must rely entirely upon the judgment and ability of the officers and Manager along with its principals and advisors, with respect to the identification and acquisition of any real estate assets
The Company may borrow funds in connection with the contemplated real estate transactions up to a maximum of 90% loan-to-value (“LTV”). Once the Company has acquired a property, it may initiate the necessary interior and exterior renovations to justify increasing rents to meet the fair market rents (if not higher) for the single and multi-family unit(s)/apartment(s). To maximize cash flow and minimize costs, the Company intends to acquire single and multi-family unit(s)/apartment(s) within New Jersey and New York. In addition to the costs necessary to acquire properties, the Company may employ other professionals (e.g., real estate brokers/agents, mortgage brokers) whose fees will be part of the total costs to acquire the single and multi-family unit(s)/apartment(s).
The Fund is intended to operate for a 5 to 10-year period (subject to extension), beginning upon the date of the closing of this Offering. The Fund will act mainly as a private equity provider for small to large-scale real estate developments and other real estate assets and transactions throughout the U.S. and may invest capital in the form of equity and/or debt components. The Fund may use all or part of the funds raised to leverage projects with debt financing from various banks and joint venture equity partners. Upon the termination of the Fund, the Company will seek to sell any remaining properties and will cease making any further investments. No assurance can be given that any property once acquired, will ever be sold, or sold on terms advantageous to the Company.
The Company, may, either directly on its own, or in conjunction with other real estate ventures and developers, seek to purchase and improve residential and/or commercial properties, and/or acquire and develop vacant land throughout the US, and then hold and lease such properties. We may perform a market-specific analysis, and may perform property inspections, including examination of the roof, the foundation, the interior, the sewer system, the mechanical system, the electrical system, and vermin/pest inspection, prior to purchase. This due diligence process would allow the Company to accurately estimate the costs involved in renovating the property, and best determine the likely rental value. However, in many cases, we may not conduct such property inspections prior to acquiring such properties. We may seek to rent properties at higher rates than previously positioned, and/or develop vacant land and introduce as rental properties to the market. We will manage such properties internally and/or utilize separate property management services to manage rent collections and associated services.
The Company may invest in new development projects by providing developers with private equity commitments. We expect to capitalize on the experience and local market knowledge of established land developers when entering into a real estate transaction.
The Company may seek to identify, acquire, and renovate residential and commercial real estate properties. We intend to purchase properties ranging between $250,000 and $10,000,000. The Company intends to pay no more than 90% of retail value after repairs, if necessary. The Company intends to sell such properties at such times and under such circumstances that it deems to be economically advantageous.
The Company may seek to identify, acquire, and renovate distressed properties. We intend to purchase properties ranging between $100,000 and $5,000,000. The Company intends to pay no more than 90% of retail value after repairs, if necessary. The Company intends to sell such properties at such times and under such circumstances that it deems to be economically advantageous.
The Company may seek to purchase below market valued “tear-down” properties and/or vacant land in desirable areas with the intention of building ground up residential and/or commercial properties. The properties will primarily be built with the intention to resell them, but some may be rented to produce cash flow prior to sale.
