A little bit more about us

Sunrise Capital Investors is an active opportunistic and value-added real estate investment firm who specializes in acquiring, improving, and operating mobile home and RV parks.

The firm’s investment strategy is to identify and capitalize on mismanaged/distressed/under-performing mobile home parks. Sunrise Capital Investors LLC acquires communities nationwide with particular focus on the Eastern US.

Sunrise Capital Investors uses a niche acquisition strategy that capitalizes on targeting off-market properties by utilizing our proprietary database of owners and various methods of strategic contact and follow-up which provides us a direct line of contact with the owners in a non-competitive environment. This provides the unique advantage to uncover highly profitable opportunities before our competitors do.

Real estate investing, even on a very small scale, remains a tried and true means of building an individual’s cash flow and wealth.

Acquisition Criteria

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

Sunrise Capital Investors seeks opportunistic and value-added investments in underperforming mobile home and RV park in targeted markets that can be repositioned to maximize value and provide safe, quiet, and affordable living to the community.

Underperforming and distressed parks can be acquired at a disproportionate discount because of the low pool of buyers with the expertise and niche acquisition strategy to finance, fix, manage, lease and enhance the operations.

Sunrise Capital Investors is executing a niche acquisition strategy that capitalizes on the growing and underserved affordable housing market by repositioning mobile home and RV communities in select submarkets that meet its acquisition criteria.

ACQUISITION CRITERIA

  • We will purchase parks in all states with an emphasis in the Eastern half of the United States
  • We will purchase at a minimum of a “true” 8-10% CAP with identified upside potential (i.e.; rent increase, filling vacant homes/lots, lowering expenses, passing through utilities, etc.)
  • Ideally, the Park must be within 40 mile radius of a Metro with a population of at least 100,000.
  • Rural parks will be considered but are not preferred.
  • We will be looking to purchase parks with between 40-150 spaces (will consider larger).
  • Family Parks which allow residents all of ages to reside. Age restricted senior parks will also be considered.
  • The park must be located in a market that is growing. We will avoid all markets that are currently in a decline.
  • We will only purchase parks in towns/cities that have multiple employment opportunities (no “one employer” towns).

Keys To Success

How & Why We Are Succeeding

img4
  • Cater to Underserved Affordable Rental Housing Segment: The household income for 20% of all Americans is under $20,000. That’s 60 million people. Based on the government’s suggested ratio of housing costs to total income — about 33%— these families can afford around $500 per month. But the average apartment rent in 2010 was over $1,000 per month. So where can you live for $500 per month? Mobile home living has always been an affordable option for people who can’t pay the high costs of conventional apartments and rental homes.

 

  • Cater to Stable, High Growth Markets: Our focus is on acquiring mobile home parks within markets that are experiencing high growth and offer many forms of stable employment for our residents. This combination creates a demand for affordable housing for which our communities are a perfect match.

 

  • Offer Unmatched Competitive Advantage: Our communities offer an affordably clean, quiet, and safe environment for our residents which puts our communities in high demand. We also offer “easy qualifying” purchase options for those who have goals of becoming a homeowner.

 

  • Favorable Industry and Economic Conditions: Mobile home parks offer the lowest default rate of any commercial asset type which means financial and lending institutions love them. This also means that this asset class will become more and more attractive to larger institutional investors which will drive values up. This is great because at this point there are still loads of opportunities for investors like Sunrise to capitalize on.

To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clients’ best interests first.

Partnering With Us

Come join us and see what we can do for you.

Over the past few years we have encountered numerous Investors, who are tired of losing their hard-earned money in the volatile Stock Market, dismal mutual fund products, , and Proforma-based investments. (Pro-forma meaning projected, expected effects or future status of a company or investment).

Many of these Investors are tired of the terms “capital call” and “upside” and have expressed their desire to place their Monies into immediate Cash-flowing Investments with conservative Exit Strategies. We recently launched a Mobile Home Park Fund for clients to invest in Commercial Real Estate.

Unlike Real Estate Acquisition Companies that are attempting to find the bottom in the Residential Real Estate Market and/or buy based upon the future upside, my experienced team and I seek to purchase existing cash-flowing properties, namely multi-family apartment buildings and mobile home parks.

Our team is now choosing Selective Partners who want to expand their investment portfolio by participating in cash flow rich real estate acquisitions. When partnering our team, you will have the backing of an experienced management and support staff, who consistently present well researched Investment Opportunities which show the highest return potential.

Our Support Staff performs extensive due-diligence by turning over every stone of the Property to ensure that we mitigate all potential investment risks up-front. Before entering into a Purchase Contract, the prospective acquisition must meet the following criteria:

  • Property must be in a stable market with current job growth and a diverse employment base
  • Must have significant upside/value-add potential
  • Must be within a metro that has 100k+ population
