Other Investments

Enriching lives by exceeding expectations

In addition to our multifamily portfolio, we also offer direct hard money loans and engage in opportunistic investments through Investment Funding Inc (IFI).

IFI was formed in 2004 to maximize the value of event-driven opportunities which reveal themselves throughout market cycles. IFI primarily targets investments in the following areas:

  • Distressed Single Family Residential Opportunities:

    Active and passive investments with various operators around the country who specialize in the acquisition, rehabilitation, and disposition of distressed single family residential (SFR). At any given time, we have between 5-10 partnerships in this space with strategies from wholesale institutional trades to fix and flip retail sales.

  • Hard Money and Bridge Financing on Real Estate Transactions:

    Hard money lending platform that specializes in 3-9 month loans secured by real estate.

  • Alternative Investments:

    Alternative strategies with various Hedge Funds, Private Equity Groups, and self-directed brokerage accounts.

  • Venture Debt and Equity:

    Passive investments in the local San Diego start up community. The current portfolio consists of equity and/or debt positions in 5 local startups. Early round investments with companies based out of San Diego are generally targeted.

  • Ground Up Development:

    New development projects both locally and abroad that range from single and multifamily residential to commercial and hospitality.

IFI’s primary purpose is to take advantage of event-driven opportunities that reveal themselves throughout market cycles
