Uncovering the Benefits of Investing in Under-Managed Niche Real Estate Asset Classes

One avenue for successful real estate investors to maximize returns and build robust, diversified portfolios is the under-managed niche real estate asset classes, which offer untapped potential for considerable returns and portfolio resilience.

With a strong presence in regions such as Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Dallas/Fort Worth and select urban markets, Basis Industrial, a leading vertically integrated real estate owner and operator, has mastered the art of navigating these niche markets to optimize investment outcomes.

What are under-managed niche real estate asset classes? They often include property types that are either overlooked or under-appreciated by larger real estate investment entities. Think self-storage facilities, multi-tenant industrial warehousing, car wash development, distressed and value-add retail, and select multi-family development projects.

Despite their potential for yielding substantial returns, they remain under-managed due to various factors, such as complex operations and the unique expertise required to manage them effectively.

What are the benefits of investing in under-managed niche asset classes?

  1. Untapped opportunities: Niche markets are often less competitive than mainstream real estate markets, resulting in less competition and more opportunities.

  2. Greater return potential: Because these asset classes are under-managed, astute investors who know how to navigate their intricacies can often unlock hidden value and generate higher returns.

  3. Diversification: Niche real estate assets offer excellent diversification benefits, providing a hedge against volatility in more traditional real estate markets.

  4. Resilience: Certain niche markets, such as self-storage and multi-tenant industrial properties, have proven to be resilient even in times of economic downturns, offering steady cash flow and income potential.

  5. Scalability: As these niche markets grow, so does the opportunity for expansion and scalability. The potential for growth in these markets is substantial, allowing for a larger portfolio and increased returns.
