At SwiftCity Capital, our rigorous approach sets us apart. We meticulously analyze hundreds of properties to identify the rare gem worthy of our investors’ participation. Our evaluation philosophy entails projecting rental increases slightly below market rates, accounting for expenses slightly higher than market rates, and assuming economic conditions at sale to be worse than at the time of purchase. This stringent evaluation model enables us to mitigate risks and safeguard investments while offering our investors fantastic returns.
