GNR Group's unique advantage is its ability to gather housing clusters comprised of single-family units located in close proximity to Philadelphia's downtown area. 

 
 

Low Competition

By operating in the affordable housing sector, specifically single-family residential (SFR) units, competition with the major real estate investment firms is almost non-existent, providing GNR with significant acquisition and construction advantages.


LEVERAGE

By using financial leverage that approaches 75% of market value, GNR is able to achieve returns significantly higher than those available in today’s market.


Value-Add

The creation of high-yielding assets worth avarage of 20% more than their renovation cost is directly attributable to GNR’s high-quality, local management of the acquisition and development process.


Holdings Structure

The ‘Single-to-Multi’ portfolio is built to maximize its attractiveness to the institutional investment market as “the next big thing” in multi-family housing, and therefore at an attractive "cap" rate.


CONTROL

GNR’s local platform, established over the last decade, provides significant control through management of all stages, from acquisition to renovations and finally active asset management. The knowledge and experience gained by GNR's management team has added significant value to its assets.

 


GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION

Beyond the obvious advantages, GNR’s capacity to follow, analyze and predict Philadelphia’s expansion trends enables it to focus on assets that will be part of this area’s future growth. Also, improving the quality of these neighborhoods increases the value of our assets for years to come.


Power Of Purchase - Oversees the construction of approximately 60 units at any given time, and regularly acquires new assets to maintain a pipeline of 100 units in different stages of development.

Acquisitions

"Power Of Purchase" - Oversees the construction of approximately 60 units at any given time, and regularly acquires new assets to maintain a pipeline of 100 units in different stages of development.

 

Single to multi

The strategy  - GNR is screening the best high yielding SFRs, manage multi construction sites, and upon completion - rent out the units and manage the ongoing operation

 
 

Section 8

Secure rent - The great majority of tenants have their rent subsidized by the federal government’s voucher program (HUD, S8), meaning 80% or more of the rent will be wired by the government.
