acquisition summary

 

 

Gold Watch Investment Group arranges debt and equity for retail acquisition and construction projects. Assets may be single tenant or multi-tenant ideally located in primary and secondary markets with strong demographics.

 

Our financial resources are a mix of investment banks, insurance companies, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT’s) and private equity groups.  As a result of these relationships we are often made aware of their objectives to acquire properties that meet specific acquisition criteria.  Sometimes CORE assets that can deliver cash flow are being sought.  More often than not, our Investors are seeking a value add component that has significant upside.  This can be in the form of a change in management, repositioning, capital investment, lease up, increase in demand due to a local occurrence, etc.

 

Lastly, please know that we are only seeking “off market” inventory.  This means it is not on LoopNet or any other online resource and it is not listed with a CRE Broker.  Our Investors are technically sophisticated and well connected to the CRE community.  They generally have immediate awareness of available assets once they are officially listed.  Gold Watch Investment Group insists on bringing value to its Investors by offering them truly, “off market”, deals that have not been shopped to their competition.

 

ACQUISITION CRITERIA

 

  • Target Markets:   Major primary and secondary markets with strong demographics
  • Quality Real Estate:   Our preferences include open air centers anchored by supermarket and/or big box tenants with performance and credit, as well as sound fundamentals such as visibility, access, and market position.
  • Attractive Buying Opportunities:   Sole-sourced and thinly marketed deals that provide a discount for a fast, all-cash close.
  • Potential to Create Value:   Deals with leasable vacancies, build-able land or capital needs that we can convert into appreciation.
  • Our Client’s willingness to deviate from the above preferences is based on the strength of the deal and the operating partner. 
  • NNN Assets with 10yrs+ left on the lease--Pharma, Grocery, Auto, Specialty Retail (Target, Staples, Pet Smart, Michael's, Dick's, Big Lots, etc.)
