Introducing Fair Winds Capital Investments
Founded by Navy veterans, Fair Winds Capital Investments, LLC is an industry-leading owner of hundreds of apartments across Hampton Roads providing quality, affordable housing to thousands of our residents and quality returns to our investors. We buy apartment communities that are poorly managed; then we improve the properties, take care of the residents, and improve the local communities while providing amazing returns to our investors.
The rate we pay our investors is based on our proven business model of value-add apartment community acquisitions. As we add value to these undervalued properties by increasing the income and decreasing the expenses, we increase the cash flow and force appreciation. Next, we cash out refinance or exit based on the increased market value and market climate. Our business model provides impressive returns to our investors while taking care of our residents and our properties. We offer monthly preferred returns to our investors, additional monthly distributions based on their equity ownership in the investment pool, and return of investment capital from the cash out refinance and sale profits. Investments are held for six years while earning dividends for a total of eight years.
Use of Investment Funds Investment funds are used as working capital and reserves to buy and operate apartment communities. We leverage loans from 70-80% of the initial property value while utilizing the investment funds to cover the remainder of the purchase price, upfront rehab, and necessary operations reserves. After covering the operations expenses, budgeting for future expenses, and paying the mortgage, the remaining cash flow is distributed as a monthly dividend payment to our investors. Our upfront improvements and streamlined operations allow us to keep our recurring expenses low while maintaining an impressive income collection (because our residents love the communities we provide!). In turn, we are able to pay our investors a healthy return on their investment, paid monthly.
