Investment strategy

Value-Add: Our Unmatched Advantage
  • A large percentage of RISE’s acquisitions are 20-30 years old, meaning there is a lot of untapped potential to capitalize on.

  • These older properties and locations are irreplaceable, offering low density, large floor plans, mature settings and are typically valued well below replacement cost.

  • Our in house design marketing and construction services allow for us to control costs while managing timely and efficient delivery of improvements to maximize revenue opportunities(1).

  • We buy quality real estate in quality markets, and make it better.
