Investment Strategies

Ciminelli Real Estate, and through its entities, invests in and manages real estate through our Core, Value-Add and Opportunistic investment strategies. These levels of investment apply to assets under Ciminelli’s and our client’s ownership. Our strategies are focused on properties within stable-to-growth markets that are positioned for appreciation over an investment's hold period. With Ciminelli’s thorough analysis and established acumen, expanding your investment portfolio with real estate options is a wise decision. 



Ciminelli's Core strategy focuses on real estate assets with a full or close-to-full occupation on the basis of long-term leases. These properties are conventionally in locations exhibiting strong market fundamentals. These investments are commonly characterized by lower risk and potential returns but stand as a dependable source of substantial current income. 


Ciminelli's Value-Add strategy focuses on real estate assets that carry the potential to generate medium to high current cash flow through strategic leasing and restructuring practices. Value-Add investments tend to target an attractive risk-adjusted return composed of current income and capital appreciation.


Ciminelli's Opportunistic strategy targets underperforming properties and development opportunities in less competitive markets or properties with unsustainable capital structures. Our focuses include ground-up development, repositioning properties or distressed property conversion. Opportunistic investments are typically characterized by a larger portion of the return resulting from capital appreciation than current income.
