Distressed Property Investing refers to the acquisition of real estate assets (property or land) that were originally purchased with a loan in which the buyer has defaulted. Vehicles used to potentially acquire distressed property include Short Sales, Foreclosures and Bank Owned REOs (Real Estate Owned).
Dunne Real Estate Capital's primary strategy incorporates the discounted purchase of REO or bank notes collateralized by finished or near-finished residential units which will either be resold at a lower cost basis, thereby undercutting the existing market, or leased for several years before the units are resold.
With virtually no new development set to occur any time in the near future and typical development delivery timeframes taking at a minimum 2 years from inception, investors acquiring discounted residential properties will be well positioned to capitalize on market trends when inventories start to run dry.
