Portfolio Management & Property Acquisition
Searchlight Lending’s acquisition strategy is guided by the firm’s approach of being a value buyer, identifying the best opportunities for capital appreciation. We look to acquire, reposition and develop a blend of assets, working to preserve capital and deliver strong returns. Sellers we’re dealing with in today’s market are primarily lenders, loan servicers, private equity groups, and the brokers representing those parties.
Our acquisition objectives include:
Repositioning distressed multi-family and commercial properties in California, Arizona and Nevada. Acquisition prices range from $1-10 million, with exceptions for specific opportunities. Purchases are generally made on an “all cash” basis with short due diligence periods and closing timeframes.
Capital appreciation and cash flow is realized through an intensive approach to due diligence, asset repositioning, asset management and ultimately asset disposition.
