What is the multifamily value add strategy?

Investors use a multifamily value add strategy when they purchase underperforming property and add value to it with renovations, operational improvements, or upgrades. Investors concentrate on optimizing the value of the property before selling it. Since a profitable exit is a primary goal, multifamily value add investments pose higher levels of risk than other real estate investments. Typically, multifamily investors have vast experience knowing what improvements and upgrades will attract more renters to increase the rents for more net revenue.
