Why to invest
in residential
real estate
development

  1. HIGH RETURN

    Developers can realize net margin of up to 15% p.a. in demand-driven markets, providing significantly higher returns than rental properties or other asset classes.

  2. LOW RISK

    Developers own mainly building plots/ land (one of most stable asset types) as a collateral pledged against investments, presenting a key advantage over other asset classes. Risks stemming from the development process can be mitigated by rigorous management.

  3. STRONG SOCIAL IMPACT

    Residential development solves problems with insufficient housing stock, which is a common local or even society-wide challenge. Few other activities have such a direct and broad impact on society.

Greenfield development close to large cities with population inflow

We target land already approved for residential development, primarily in proximity to Prague and other large cities which is suitable for rapid development (2-3 years). In Phase 1 of the development, we ensure land zoning decisions, building permits, develop utility networks, driveways to secure full readiness of the resulting building plots for construction. In potential phase 2, we develop the family or apartment houses as a turnkey project.

Apartment houses in major cities with renovation / add-on opportunities

Based on analytical rigor & previous experience, we will be looking for real estate in centers of major cities in CEE region suitable for development of modern, often smaller-scale residential apartments. Purchased assets might be both outdated apartment houses or sub-prime offices, currently often mispriced, due to low demand resulting from remote/hybrid ways of working.

Leisure apartments in prime resorts

COVID-19 acted as a trigger for regional tourism that led also in the Czech market to strong demand from mountain apartments, especially in prime locations. As the supply of such units is limited, price skyrocketed (reflecting that of prime residential apartments in center of Prague). We will be looking for renovations of elderly housing lodges or even greenfield developments to satisfy the continued high demand.
