Everything you need to know
about distressed properties

Distressed properties can be an attractive investment opportunity for commercial real estate GPs and their investors for a number of reasons.

Lower Purchase Prices

Distressed properties are often sold at a significant discount to their fair market value. This can provide investors with the opportunity to acquire a property at a price that is below their cost basis.

Potential for High Returns

If the property is managed correctly, there is the potential for significant returns on investment. This is because the investor can buy the property at a low price and then sell it for a profit once it has been rehabilitated or repositioned.

High Levels of Leverage

Distressed properties can often be financed with a high level of leverage. This means that the investor can borrow a large amount of money to purchase the property, which can magnify the potential returns.

Tax Benefits

There are a number of tax benefits that can be associated with investing in distressed commercial properties. For example, investors may be able to deduct the cost of rehabilitating the property from their taxes.

Covercy is the first real estate investment management platform with embedded banking designed for GPs who are managing distressed property syndications.

Distressed Properties & Risk Level

What counts as a “distressed property” in commercial real estate? And is one type less risky than another for investors?

Simply put, distressed properties in commercial real estate are properties experiencing financial difficulty. This can be due to a number of factors, such as:

  • • The property is underwater, meaning that the owner owes more on the loan than the property is worth.
  • • The property is not generating enough income to cover the expenses.
  • • The property is in need of major repairs or renovations.
  • • The owner is facing financial hardship and cannot afford to maintain the property.

What Type of Distressed Property is Least Risky?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best type of distressed property investment for a GP will depend on their individual circumstances, investment goals, and exit strategies. However, some distressed properties may be more attractive or less risky for GPs than others.

For example, bank-owned properties (also known as REOs) can be a good option for GPs who are looking for distressed properties that are already in good condition and may be easier to sell. REOs are often sold at a discount, which can provide GPs with an opportunity to acquire a property at a below-market price. However, it is important to note that REOs may also require some repairs or renovations, so GPs should carefully inspect the property before making an investment.

Another type of distressed property investment that may be attractive to GPs is a short sale. A short sale occurs when a borrower sells their property for less than the amount owed on the loan. This can be a good option for GPs who are looking for properties that are below market value, but it is important to note that short sales can be complex and time-consuming to complete.

Finally, auction properties can also be a good option for GPs who are looking for distressed properties. Auction properties are often sold for a fraction of their fair market value, but it is important to note that auction properties can be difficult to sell, and GPs should carefully consider the risks involved before making an investment.

Ultimately, the best way to determine which type of distressed property investment is right for a GP is to consult with a financial advisor or real estate investment professional. An advisor can help the GP assess their individual circumstances and investment goals and recommend the best distressed properties to evaluate.
