Our expertise in management, finance and construction is the backbone supporting every investment opportunity we identify.
DIRECT PROPERTY INVESTMENTS
Multi Family Residential Investment and residential investment real estate is the focus of Vestis Capital LLC, one of Vestis Group’s main business lines. We invest in a variety of properties including apartments, bulk condos, single-family homes and multi-family residential land in our core geographic market.
Through our continuous evaluation of the national and local economic environment, as well as property-level performance, we focus on opportunities positioned for strong operating results. We also consider distressed situations with deep-value pricing and the potential to improve operating performance. Our purchases typically have a one- to two-year time horizon. While we will look at broadly-marketed conditions, we focus on buying properties with a more limited marketing process or with a specialized value-added component not easily understood by larger, non-local, investment groups with a national approach.
We spend a substantial amount of time and resources monitoring opportunities with strict attention to the nuances and details of this specific real estate market. Learn More>>
Deal flow is a combination of local relationships and in-house acquisitions, and our ability to capitalize on expertise across multiple company business lines to evaluate the opportunities and risks associated with an investment.
We Buy-Fix-Hold and Buy-Fix-Sell distressed, older vintage, multi-family, single-family (homes, townhomes, condos) and commercial properties, which require minor to major rehab, in established or trendy, improving/transitional neighborhoods and increase the value through high-end renovation, target marketing and hands-on property management. By using our extensive local area knowledge, adhering to our target market and renovating with contemporary design, we are able to command above market rents and dispose our buildings at premium pricing, ensuring maximum return on investment.

INVEST WITH VESTIS GROUP
When Vestis Capital purchases a property, there are two ways an investor may participate: Equity Investing and Debt Investing.
- EQUITY INVESTING – An equity investment offers a variable annual return based on a share of monthly cash flow and the final disposition value of the property. At close of escrow, the investor will receive back his/her original investment first, then the remaining proceeds are split as specified in a pre-determined operating agreement.
- DEBT INVESTING – A debt investment offers an investor a fixed annual interest rate paid monthly. The debt investor receives a relatively high interest rate (typically 8-12%) on his/her money, but has no share of profits that may be realized from a sale or positive cash flow. The debt investment is secured by a note and deed of trust.
- Returns are computed per annum
- A preferred, fixed, return is disbursed monthly
- Rates are fixed for the period of the term of the investment
- Real property is assigned as collateral
- Notes are secured by a first position deed of trust
- Project financial reports are issued monthly
Risk | Return
When we evaluate a potential property for acquisition, our minimum acceptable annual rate of return is 25%. If we do not project a minimum 25% annual return, we do not move forward with the acquisition. We believe that our pro forma numbers are conservative, however to earn returns of 8% to 80% per year, there is inevitably more risk that simply leaving your funds in a savings account at your local bank. Some properties are bought at a trustee sale auction and a thorough physical inspection is not always possible. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sewer, structural problems and zoning challenges are all possibilities. Our multifamily investments (for example) allow for a 10% vacancy rate. We utilize professional property management companies for the day-to-day leasing and maintenance activities, but if vacancies were to dramatically increase, the financial success of the project could be threatened. As an equity or debt investor your worst case scenario exit strategy is that you end up with the property.
