AVGI is a real estate investment firm that purchases opportunistic assets in New York as well as secondary and tertiary markets throughout the United States.
The firm currently has over $85 million of real estate holdings across 6 markets – Long Island, New York City, Houston, Little Rock, St. Louis, and Binghamton.
AVGI acquires physical assets that produce strong in-place income with the opportunity to optimize the property’s physical and financial condition. This strategy allows us to minimize risk and maximize upside.
We utilize our relationships in the capital markets to strategically refinance our properties and extract the majority of the investor equity faster than traditional real estate investments. This provides the opportunity to recycle the returned capital into our future pipeline deals
Any investment in an opportunity provided by AVGI generates true passive income while building equity. Investing in AVGI means that you’re not just investing in a real estate deal, but you’re investing in a company, its resources, and its $85 million track record. While we do all the work to maximize the value of your investment, all you have to do is collect your distribution.
