New Reality: Adapting Value-Add Strategies to Today’s Situation
Class C properties have been hit hardest by unemployment and non-payment of rent, while Class A properties have thus far been unscathed, although a prolonged period of economic depression could change that. The typical Value-Add strategy involves buying up B and C properties and upgrading them, if not to Class A, at least to a higher quality product that attracts higher paying tenants. How has the pandemic changed all that, and what is the outlook for the value-add rehab model?
- How are the buyers finding and funding new deals in the Midwest & Chicago today?
