Why Our Approach is Unique and Effective
Long-Term Investment Strategy
In comparison with most real estate investment firms, Francis Property retains properties over longer time horizons, typically fifteen years or more, without hefty acquisition and sales fees. Whereas traditional syndicators take a 20-50% promotional interest, Francis Property’s typical acquisition fee is considerably lower and is often based on the equity raised rather than purchase price.
To protect the investments we make in variable real estate cycles and to obtain lower financing rates, we take low-leveraged positions (typically placing 30-40% down).
We Invest Our Own Money
The most significant difference between Francis Property and most other investment firms is that the company’s principals invest their own money in each acquisition.
