It is this comprehensive plan of action and experience that has given us the ability and track record to successfully revitalize existing assets and finance new construction and development projects.
SMA Equities is a leader in redeveloping underperforming properties nationwide. By implementing financial restructuring, capital improvements, adaptive re-use, strategic marketing and management improvement programs, SMA Equities continues to create value and build upon a strong track record in revitalizing commercial and residential assets.
The SMA Strategy
The key to SMA Equities' investment strategy is identifying well-located, fundamentally sound properties that are underperforming their potential, creating a plan-of-action to resolve site-specific issues, and successfully implementing that plan. The ability to close quickly and complete redevelopment efficiently enhances returns. SMA Equities maintains a pool of immediately available capital and focuses on geographic areas which are well networked and highly mobile.
This investment strategy has consistently achieved high returns in all types of assets. In stabilized assets, returns are enhanced through the income appreciation generated by the density in urban markets; in redevelopment assets, the strategy is especially successful because the opportunity exists to purchase properties that are well located at attractive discounts, positioning them for strong returns as the properties are redeveloped.
