Value-add real estate investing can mean a lot of different things depending on who you ask. For a single-family rental investor, value-add can simply mean updating the kitchen and bathroom. For a self-storage investor, value-add can mean automating and systematizing their facility. And for multifamily real estate investors, value-add can mean an entire remodel on dozens of units, at the same time, in the same place.
The benefit? Multifamily investors can capitalize on renting out units while in the middle of renovations on other parts of the building. This allows them to keep cash flow coming in while immediately deploying it into the same investment. And we haven’t even talked about the millions of dollars worth of equity through rent increases that value-add can provide!
If this all seems a bit complicated, we’re here to help. Today, Terrance Doyle, multifamily master and value-add expert, walks through three of his properties all in different phases of the value-add cycle.
