Low-Risk, Conservative Investments
All acquisition decisions are made in-house without depending on speculation or appreciation to be profitable. Each investment MUST make financial sense on its own merits…regardless of what others in the market are doing. We make decisions dispassionately, based on achieving our long-term goals rather than short-term gains. Our goal is to minimize your risk, reduce exposure, and maximize profits to ensure sound, consistently wise investments. Simply put...if it can't be bought at a low basis in a good market with a strong upside, we're not interested.
Secured By Real Estate
Each investment is secured by real property through a deed of trust. All closings are processed through third-party title companies to ensure the proper due diligence along with clean and marketable title and hazard insurance. We also retain outside expert services for loan servicing, legal work, tax preparation, and property appraisals. This allows us to put our full attention and focus on our core competence: acquiring low-risk assets to and putting your capital to work.
Since 2002, our Managing Director has personally raised over $1.6 million in capital from private investors, successfully exited from over 100 single-family projects, and spoken at over 30 real estate investment conferences and seminars as an expert, and won a "Top 25 Under 5" award for growing his first real estate investment firm at an accelerated rate. Additionally, our partners and currently own over 2,000 units nationwide.
Niche Acquisition Strategy
After 15 years of successful investments in over 100 single-family projects, we are now capitalizing on the growing demand for multi-family housing. We have purchased properties in various states but are currently focused on Richmond, VA, and the surrounding counties. We stay narrowly focused on the niche of value-add Class B & C projects in order to achieve aggressive returns without the increased risks of construction & development.
At Key Elements, we pride ourselves on simplicity, transparency, and being 100% straightforward with our investors and borrowers. You’re kept up-to-date and informed on any investment decision regarding your capital. The phone lines are always open. You will receive a detailed quarterly update and an annual report for bookkeeping and tax reporting.
Every day, more smart investors diversify away from the options typically presented by financial advisers, such as stocks and mutual funds, and invest in real estate instead. We do not believe that an investment needs to be riskier in order to justify higher returns. Nor do we believe in denying you control over which transactions you participate in. Because we acquire residential assets at a low basis, our investors receive a yield of at least 10% annually, and often substantially more.
