We partner with best in class Capital Partners to execute on well-defined strategies such as:

Value add – Find opportunities where assets are under market in rents or occupancy. Correct physical and operational inefficiencies to create increased NOI that leads our return expectations. Lynd has done 120m in Value add rehab since 2004.

Defaulted notes – Locate Notes that are not performing. Acquire them, foreclose on them and reposition the asset. Buying at a reduced basis creates arbitrage opportunities. Lynd has successfully acquired and managed over 60 notes equaling 1b of the unpaid principal balance.

Lynd utilizes an extensive network of brokers, owners, management companies and intermediaries to locate, underwrite and acquire assets. Many of these acquisitions were sourced off market or direct with sellers. This creates unique buy opportunities that lead to higher then average returns.
