Value-Add Strategy

Investment in our Value Add strategy will most often follow a buy, fix, and sell business plan.  Value Add opportunities are typically well-located properties that are underperforming due to deficiencies in deferred maintenance or existing management.  PIA will orchestrate upgrade programs to most efficiently capture the rental potential and increase the property value.  Most properties will be purchased with an attractive debt structure and hold periods of three to five years.

Investor Benefits

  • PIA Group’s priority is the preservation and growth of investor capital.  It is our belief that in today’s market, multi-family investments provide the most attractive, risk-adjusted returns when compared to other commercial real estate investments.
  • Returns are comprised of annual operating cash flow including quarterly distributions, plus proceeds from the sale or refinance of the assets.
  • Our company principals invest in all deals and are directly involved on a day-to-day basis, executing with an entrepreneurial, owner/operator mentality.
  • PIA Group’s investment model mandates that all investments generate current monthly “cash on cash” returns for its investors, rather than rely upon highly speculative “back end” projections.
