Value Investing in Real Estate


We compare our results to the S&P 500 to measure against what would have happened if we had just passively put all the money in an index fund.


Year S&P 500 Return (with Dividends Included)
2016 6% 12.2%
2017 78% 21.8%
2018 38% -4.4%
2019 4% 31.5%
2020 54.5% 18.4%
Average Annual Return 36.1% 15.9%


Do any of these resonate with you?

  • We think of all our investors as long term equal partners and want our investors to think of themselves as equal partners as well.
  • We’re all in this together – our money is always invested alongside with our investors.
  • The ideal holding time for an investment is forever… as long as the economics of the asset continue to make sense.
  • Buy only with a Margin of Safety.
  • Circle of Competence – we invest in what we know, if we don’t understand it, we don’t invest.
  • Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger
  • All intelligent investing is value investing.
  • We try to make rational decisions about the desirability of a property in 10 to 20 years.
  • It’s better to pay a slightly higher price for an investment in a great neighborhood rather than a cheap price in a bad one.
  • We focus on things that are important and within our control. Questions like, “What interest rates will be?’ or “Will there be a recession in 2 years?” are out of our control.  We focus on questions like, “Does this property cash flow?” and “Will this property’s great location still be great in 10 years?”
