There are four direct investment strategies for residential and commercial assets:
Fixed Income (loan)
Fixed income investments are generally chosen for two reasons: it’s a stable income stream and to help protect principal value.
Our Fixed Income strategy seeks to generate above-market returns by providing creative, comprehensive financing solutions tied to high-quality real estate assets—a strategy that can generate dividend income and capital appreciation. Fixed-income investors ideally begin with a solid core portfolio that has an acceptable level of risk and stable returns across interest rate cycles.
Core Plus (buy & hold)
The Parvis Core Plus strategy features stabilized real estate with a long investment horizon and low to moderate leverage.
Using this value-oriented strategy, we select properties with great tenants in desirable markets, for additional value through focused asset management. We buy quality assets with an attractive basis in growing markets.
Value Add (fix & flip)
Our Value-Add strategy acquires existing properties below replacement cost and invests capital to increase their value.
A Value-Add property needs updates to reach its full potential value, so we focus primarily on acquiring reasonably priced residential properties in growing markets. While it may be higher risk, it offers better returns than Fixed Income or Core Plus properties.
Opportunistic (risk & reward)
Exploring the most dynamic markets, our Opportunistic strategy acquires underutilized, well-located properties.
We identify the point of improvement, then rectify and leverage it to generate outsized investment returns. These properties are built or repurposed, often from the ground up, by our in-house development team and best-in-class partners. These developments are the most complex and carry the highest risk of our investment strategies, but also the highest return potential.
