Middle Market Real Estate: An Inefficient Market Prime For High Yields

Middle Market Real Estate: An Inefficient Market Prime For High Yields

Better pricing and better structure in the middle market

Middle Market Real Estate is an inefficient market with mispriced assets and less risk that results in a fertile opportunity set for investors who are looking for investments with above average yields and low risk.

By targeting only small to mid-size equity investments, there are opportunities to capitalize on these inefficiencies and identify mispriced assets with significant growth potential.

The average transaction size of this market segment relative to the amount of capital seeking to be deployed, together with timing pressure and structural constraints, make it impractical for large institutions to execute middle market strategies.

Advantages of Investing in Middle Market Real Estate:

  • Under-the-radar market inefficiency creates an attractive opportunity to invest in the middle market.

  • Little correlation with macroeconomic market cycles.

  • Higher yields due to the pricing and structural premiums of the middle market.
