The GroundSwell Advantage

Leaf
In order to unlock the profit potential of underutilized urban properties, revitalization has to happen on a large enough scale to attract the critical mass needed to sustain it. Until recently, the size and complexity of these projects placed them out of reach to all but the largest institutional investors. For individuals who simply wanted to augment their portfolios without having to become professional developers, the regulatory risks and bureaucratic timeline associated with these projects greatly reduced their profit potential.

In the last decade, GROUNDSWELL has perfected a large scale land assembly methodology that streamlines redevelopment and minimizes risk while enabling smaller investors to generate cash flow during the transition phase. How are we able to do this? We have assembled a select team of multi-disciplinary partners in fields as diverse as regulatory compliance, asset valuation, incorporation strategies, green building technology, site remediation and alternative financing in addition to all of the required planning, design and construction expertise. Working with GROUNDSWELL provides the individual investor with a number of attractive advantages.
  • faster returns
  • lower initial investment
  • increased profit potential
  • reduced risk
  • earlier cash flow potential
  • greater sustainability
  • fewer administrative and regulatory issues
  • higher value to owners, occupants and community
  • more exit options
When done correctly, urban renewal projects deliver statistically higher than average returns over other types of real estate investments. We know how to locate these high-potential sites and make them profitable in the shortest time with the lowest risk. Our integrity-based methodology also ensures that these profits are captured in an ethical, sustainable, responsible manner that benefits occupants, owners and surrounding communities.

SYNDICATION

What Is Syndication?
Simply put, real estate syndication empowers individual investors to participate in the profits generated from large scale development projects that were once only available to institutional investors, without the hassle of managing them. Real Estate syndications can allow an individual investor with limited funds the opportunity to take advantage of the historical trend of increasing real estate prices while providing diversification through investing in a number of different properties, or one larger property with multiple tenants.

Advantages of Real Estate Syndicates

Economies of scale
Allows smaller investors to pool funds and achieve economies of scale that are normally only available to institutional investors.

Expertise
Benefit from high returns of more complicated entitlement plays that require professional management and teams of experts to complete. Unseasoned investors who don't have the time or inclination to learn every aspect of owning and managing real estate investment can benefit from someone else's skills and experience negotiating purchase agreements, financing a purchase, negotiating leases and managing the property or development project.

Discounted Price
A well funded syndicated can leverage its capital to negotiate substantial price discounts

Diversification
Minimize risk through investing in multiple properties, or larger properties with multiple tenants.

Cost savings
Significant cost savings can be realized through leveraging the economies of scale that are created through the syndicate.

Cash reserves
Syndication can assure that there is enough cash in reserve to help weather any economic downturns or temporary shortfalls.

Unconventional investments
Often times, some of the most profitable real estate investments are considered "unconventional" by many lenders. Syndicates allow investors to capitalize on these opportunities where conventional financing is not available.
