Fundamentals That Set Us Apart

Speculation involves luck and emotion while investing requires discipline, analysis, and research. Speculation leads to mediocre performance at best, and disaster when market conditions change.
We expect downturns and plan for cycles. We like cycles because they create opportunity for those who are prepared. We find great investments in up and down markets.
We capitalize on discrepancies that exist in the market, especially when we can act quickly. This give us a competitive advantage to achieve on-going success.
We are analytical and we dig into details. This stems from the years I spent as a financial auditor at a public accounting firm before I founded Alturas.

Diversified Strategy

Consistent Returns with Lower Risk

One thing that sets us apart is our diversified strategy. We achieve consistent returns with lower risk by owning a diverse set of assets. We invest in: commercial real estate, residential real estate and loans secured by real estate.

 

Commercial

We invest in commercial real estate. These are value-add investments, meaning that we create value through our efforts to reposition, improve and stabilize the properties. We achieve higher risk adjusted returns because of our expertise in bringing value to our real estate holdings.

 

Residential

In addition to commercial real estate, we also invest in residential real estate. Since 2009, we have made over 100 residential value-add investments. However, we don’t find the same deal flow in this space as in the past. Instead, most of our residential investments today come primarily through our company, Alturas Homes.

 

Lending

We also make loans secured by real estate. These are first position loans on residential and commercial properties. We underwrite loans as if we were purchasing the property ourselves and loan only on properties we understand. This lowers our risk because we know how to get top dollar for these assets if we were ever to get them back.

 


 

Our diversified strategy gives us a competitive advantage. It allows to know our true opportunity cost, so we can make the best decisions with our investment dollars and generate the highest possible risk-adjusted returns for our investors.


Geographic focus

Another key to our success is a geographic focus on the Intermountain West, which is one of the premier growth markets in the country. We know our market, which helps us reduce risk for our investors.

Our two primary markets are Boise, Idaho and Salt Lake City, Utah. These markets have high job growth and low unemployment. Population growth is expected to be more than 2 times the national average over the next 20 years. This means opportunity for us and for our investors.

We also invest in the Pacific Northwest, including Seattle, Portland, Spokane, the Tri-Cities.
