This year alone, over $30 billion in capital was raised by real estate investors in order to purchase B-class properties. There’s no denying that Class B and C  properties can easily be recognized as the most desired asset-class in real estate. At DLP Capital Partners, we focus on real estate investments within these types of assets, and put a focus on a conversative investment strategy to mitigate investment risks.

One way we mitigate risks is by making very conservative assumptions. For example, we make convservative revenue assumptions on market rent and rent increases, only anticipating a 2% increase in rents each year. We also presume that when it comes time to sell these investment properties, CAP rates are going to be much higher, assuming the value of the properties will decrease. 

In this webinar, our CEO Don Wenner, explains how DLP Capital Partners further mitigates risks on our real estate investments.
