Where Real Estate Investors & Landlords Go for Success

EP294 Five Must-Know Steps to Renovating a Multifamily Apartment Property with Ken Gee

One of the most lucrative ways to invest in real estate is to find an underperforming, tired multifamily property and bring it back to life through better management, renovations, and capital improvements.  I’ve done this myself many times and have added exponential value to the property and investment.

My guest today is going to share with us the five most important steps you must follow when renovating a multifamily apartment property.  He’s also going to tell you what to look for in an investment sponsor if you’d prefer to invest passively in these types of opportunities.

Ken Gee is the founder and managing partner of KRI Partners and the KRI group of companies.  He has over 24 years of real estate, banking, private equity transaction, and principal investing experience.  He’s also been involved with transactions valued at over $2 Billion dollars.

Today Ken’s going to take us through the five most important steps his team takes when acquiring and improving a multifamily apartment project, the importance of understanding the market you’re investing in, the amenities he likes to add, and why you should wait at least 30 days before beginning any improvements.

We’ll also discuss the three things you should look for in a sponsor you might invest with passively, including their track record and the way they prioritize their investors.
