Who is SGRE?
SGRE Investments is an experienced private real estate equity firm that sponsors syndicated multi-family investments assets primarily in the Houston metro area. SGRE Investments mission is to help investors learn about the commercial real estate investing and how this unique asset class can help them reach financial freedom and create generational wealth. Our goals are to help our clients achieve and invest with confidence to improve communities by giving tenants a safe, great place to live.
We make it easy for investors to participate in our carefully vetted investment opportunities in markets that are experiencing strong economic growth. We utilize a disciplined approach to real estate investing within a strictly analytical framework for acquiring and improving the financial performance of our opportunities resulting in strong returns to our investors. Our track record with this investment model developed through years of experience ensures we have know-how and deal-flow to provide our investors with some of the best risk-adjusted returns of any available asset class.
We are committed to giving you the tools you need to learn about real estate investment while providing opportunities that help you reach financial freedom and create generational wealth. Our value-add strategy starts by locating properties through our network of broker and seller relationships that allow us to acquire assets in off-market transactions at below retail cost with in-place cash flow that is well below comparable assets in the marketplace. We then implement our proven strategy of increasing cash flow through targeted improvements, correcting deferred maintenance, improving management, raising rents, and decreasing vacancy. All of these strategies combined create a favorable risk-return profile our investors find compelling.
Yes. While most sponsors use third party managers and contractors, SGRE along with its partners utilizes a vertically integrated business model that places our our own asset management and construction teams. Utilizing our own management and construction teams, we keep our labor rates and material costs low and pass these savings along to our investors. Our vertical integration model creates a cost savings that allows us to pay an additional 5%-6% in IRR compared to other deal sponsors.
Actual returns vary on a property-by-property basis, but our typical offering pays annual dividends of 8-10% (2%-2.5% quarterly), annual IRR is 18%-20% with an equity multiple of 2X over the life of the deal (typically 5 years). We typically return a large part of investor principle at a refinance event at month 24 and at the sale of the asset. See the private placement memorandum (PPM) for specific investment risks for each offering.
We are not a broker-dealer but a private equity real estate firm that creates unique investment opportunities that yield favorable risk-adjusted returns for investors. Broker-dealers sell securities for a commission and/or equity interest in the deal.
We are not a Blind Pool Fund, REIT or a Stock Market Derivative.
