AMERICAN EQUITY GROUP OVERVIEW
American Equity Group and its affiliated companies is a privately held real estate investment firm. Our investment strategy seeks exceptional returns by selectively buying underperforming and distressed US real estate assets, with a focus on properties in the Southeastern US. We mitigate the risks inherent in the current downturn by purchasing properties for below intrinsic replacement cost and normal market value. We focus on properties that have the greatest opportunity for cash-flow growth and appreciation in value.
Acquisition targets are properties that are underperforming or distressed due to poor management, high debt service or upcoming loan maturity including:
- properties that are fully-performing but face pending loan maturity in a difficult refinance and valuation environment;
- properties that are distressed through a combination of physical condition, deferred maintenance, financial and other operating factors, and are therefore available at prices below their intrinsic replacement value; and
- properties that are being foreclosed on or are already bank owned
