Products / Services
U.S. Opportunistic & Value-Add Commercial Real Estate Assets
NVCS seeks to acquire office, retail, multifamily, hospitality and industrial assets located throughout the USA in the range of $3MM to $15MM. The Company will acquire improved assets which are in need of repositioning. To clarify, the Company’s strategy is not to develop ground-up commercial real estate. The typical project will require significant tenant improvements and leasing commissions in order to successfully bring the asset to market stabilization.
Additionally, the Company seeks to acquire non-performing notes with the intention of opportunistically acquiring the underlying property asset at significant discounts to market valuation.
