§1031 Opportunities

We offer §1031 exchange opportunities for tenant in common investors that are selling their existing properties.  Deferred capital gains taxes and depreciation recapture taxes are very burdensome for investors who utilized a §1031 exchange to get into their existing investment.  In cases where investors have a very low adjusted tax basis, the tax liability can eat up a majority of the cash recovery.  Those investors have a compelling need to defer taxes through another §1031 exchange.  We are experts in §1031 transactions and TIC investments.

We offer §1031 opportunities that will allow individual investors the opportunity to gain direct access to commercial real estate and continue to defer their taxes.  Our §1031 opportunities come with low fees, solid management, current cash flow, and are open to accredited investors.

Virtua High Growth Fund II

The Virtua High Growth Fund II is a real estate investment fund for investors looking to achieve compelling rates of capital appreciation through value add investments in commercial real estate.  The predecessor to VHGF II is VHGF I and has made 14 investments in a variety of properties.  Three of the fourteen investments have gone full cycle and realized a 123% IRR prior to expenses.

Due to the large number of TIC loans maturing in 2016 and 2017, the Fund is now seeking capital to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase TIC interests that are looking to exit, provide rescue capital to distressed opportunities, and offer liquidity to an illiquid market.

Current market conditions enable savvy investors to benefit from the upcoming real estate cycle.  Click on the link below to review the investment brochure.

Some of our current and past offerings include tenants such as Lockheed Martin, United Healthcare, Progressive Insurance and Waste Management.  Credit worthy tenants ensure stable cash flows and reduce risk.  

Superior Returns
We provide fixed income and equity investments. Our fixed income offerings are primarily mezzanine debt with returns of 13-15% net to the investor, paid monthly.  Our equity offerings span a range of options from fully stabilized assets to value add investment.   We target returns of 12-18% on stabilized assets and returns of 20-30%+ on value add investments.  

We offer a variety of investments with uncorrelated risk profiles.  For investors who are over-weight in one commercial real estate property, it is particularly important to diversify.  We offer geographic, credit, asset class, and capital stack diversification.

Equity Placement

Providing flexible equity capital to clients

Versant is dedicated to small and middle market commercial real estate opportunities.  Most institutional equity investors have a minimum investment requirement of $3MM - $5MM.  Many real estate projects need smaller amounts of additional equity.  We excel at placing equity from $500,000 to $10,000,000.

Versant Commercial Brokerage has direct access to thousands of investors looking to invest in Commercial Real Estate nationwide.  Our wholesale approach removes the middlemen that increase costs and make institutional equity very expensive.   Our ability to finance equity at reasonable rates is unique, offering the most efficient option for commercial real estate owners in need of equity capital.

Senior Debt Placement

Our professionals have more than $3,000,000,000 of combined commercial real estate experience. Our extensive network of relationships with senior lenders and our knowledge of capital markets will ensure the best pricing and maximum loan proceeds. 

Not all loans are created equal.  We take the time to understand our client’s needs and objectives and identify the best debt solutions.  Obtaining the best possible financing is a crucial ingredient to the success of any real estate project.  

We provide:

  • Permanent Financing
  • Bridge Financing
  • Mezzanine Debt
  • Discounted Payoff Financing
  • Participating Debt
  • Structured Investments
  • Construction Loans

We have maintained a network of relationships that include portfolio lenders, banks, conduits, insurance companies, bridge and private lenders.  Our ability to place flexible debt and equity directly into demanding situations differentiates us from the competition.

TIC Purchases

We Buy TIC Investments

Versant understands the challenges faced by Tenant In Common (TIC) investors.  The industry is rife with fraud and mismanagement.  When individual TIC investors need to sell their holdings there are many obstacles to completing the transaction.  The TIC investment may only be sold to accredited investors through a private placement memorandum registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  In addition, investors must obtain lender approval in order to avoid triggering a loan default.  This process is costly and extraordinarily difficult, and beyond the capability of most investors.  

We buy individual TIC interests.  Whether your TIC share is paying distributions or not, we are interested in purchasing your TIC investment.  Call Derek Uldricks at (619) 764-9633 for more information.
