We identify projects through our extensive network of in-house and outside realtors. We also work with banks to identify foreclosure properties and work with owners to help them get the best value for their property. Rise Capital always looks beyond the current building or land, we evaluate project opportunity based on the extensive data and experience to determine what that project can evolve into.
Projects are financed through partnerships with local banks and investors. Rise Capital believes that having local financing is crucial as investors and banks are able to better evaluate the project potential and are more willing to invest into a project. Relationship and trust are the crucial components with both institutional and individual investors.
Rise Capital always focuses on the neighborhood feel in helping determine what kind of style of the developments it will be. For larger projects we take into consideration concerns of the neighbors to ensure project fits into the existing ecosystem while meeting the needs of the future owners.
In the areas where we have familiarity we rely on in-house team of agents to market and sell properties. We are able to do the research on pricing and market trends before we go to the market. For the properties that are kept as investments we rely on our own property management team to manage the buildings and tenant needs.
