Opportunistic real estate investment adopts a capital appreciation approach. There are many different types of investments that fall into this category, from new build development, land, equity investment, to adaptive re-use and emerging markets. 

The unifying principle is that they allow for out-sized returns for those willing to take an entrepreneurial risk, with a moderate to high degree of leverage generally being employed to enhance total returns.

By nature opportunistic real estate typically relies on the ability to quickly enhance the asset to realise the significant upside potential, this takes a large degree of skill, research and planning with an in-depth understanding of the market paramount to ensuring success.

EXAMPLE
Opportunistic properties tend to need significant rehabilitation in order to realise their potential, they can include; rebuilds, new development, a full hotel remodel, a ground-up rebuild, a repurposing of a vacant building or purchase of a distressed asset.

Opportunistic strategies require specialised investment and management expertise due to their complexity and to mitigate the higher risk.

Value Added investments are generally commercial real estate properties where the strategy is to improve the building, selling it when the time is right.

These properties may be situated in recovering primary locations as well as in secondary or tertiary locations and offer the opportunity for a mix of future capital appreciation and current cash flow.

Value added assets can often benefit from a change in marketing, operating, or leasing strategy; physical improvements; and/or a new capital structure.

The strategies in value-added real estate investing are designed to mitigate risk, but demand a higher level of due diligence.

EXAMPLE
A commercial office property that is 80% leased to two corporate tenants. The building is purchased below replacement cost reflecting the relatively poor lease structure. Enhancement of the property is planned through upgrading the reception area and external presentation of the building.

This results in the renewal of the lease with an existing tenant on more favourable terms, along with increasing the occupancy rate from 80% to 90%.

Core Plus investments are attractive to investors who generally want a safe return, but are looking for a bit of upside potential.

The difference between a core and core plus strategy is the ability to enhance the value of an already stable asset.

The higher returns from core plus investments in relation to core investments are often attributed to factors such as employing moderate leverage, redevelopment and active management that reduces operating costs and raises the lease profile.

The higher returns from core plus investments relative to core investments may reflect such factors as somewhat higher releasing risk and/or higher levels of leverage (50.0% to 60.0%).

EXAMPLE
Selecting a well-located, high-quality building, with several expiring leases, in a primary market that is expected to see capital growth. The investment would generate less of a return from current cash flow but has potential for increased returns via higher rents.

Value creation could also consist of active asset management to improve the tenant profile of a building, repositioning of the asset and lengthening leases.

Core investments assets are well located, diversified across the five major property types: office, retail, industrial, residential and hotel, with long term leases to quality tenants and funded with low to moderate levels of leverage.

The objective is to provide investors with secure income over the long-term, typically in excess of five years. Core assets generally require little or no short-term capital expenditure and benefit from a high level of predictability, perfect for balancing a high risk portfolio

The income component typically represents a significant majority (circa 70 per cent) of the expected total return.

Core real estate tends to be held for the long-term, typically seven years or more. Leverage is generally below 50 per cent.

EXAMPLE
A premier, multi-tenant office building in a major urban market with intermediate to long term leases, with limited lease rollovers to low-risk tenants with strong credit, acquired with a low level of leverage (less than 50.0%).

Core investing does not mean passive management. Active management of core assets can add value through initiatives such as improving lease profiles and reducing building operating costs.
