ACQUISITION CRITERIA


Methodology

Nearon is a privately held real estate investment company with a successful track record of acquiring, developing, and managing industrial, office, retail, and multi-family properties. We currently manage a diverse 5 million square foot portfolio, of which 3 million square feet is industrial. We have placed our near-term focus on primarily acquiring industrial and multi-family assets, though we are actively exploring the right opportunities for office and retail acquisitions. Although we maintain a local approach to real estate, our acquisition team is capable of completing complex transactions with sophisticated investors. More specific criteria is included below.

Key Considerations

  • Targeting value-add, renovation, leasing, and core-plus properties
  • Targeting properties with near-term rollover exposure, below market in-place rents, and existing vacancy
  • Targeting national or regional credit quality major tenants
  • Will consider properties with expansion potential and reposition potential
  • Not targeting speculative construction, lease rollover with high re-tenanting costs, or properties with significant physical obsolescence
  • For industrial acquisitions, we are targeting single-tenant and multi-tenant properties with up to 4 to 6 tenants
  • Ability to close in a timely matter
