Since its inception in 2008, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has successfully managed and operated over $20,000,000 of real estate assets with its diverse team of capital investment partners.
Founded by real estate entrepreneur Richard Haynes, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has maximized returns for its investors based on navigating economic cycles, conducting comprehensive research of the supply and demand chain, and managing risk of real estate asset classes with accurate market timing.
From its humble beginnings in low-income residential multi-family sector in South Los Angeles, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has evolved to offer a wide variety of real estate investment opportunities for its partners. Whether it be a short-term residential flips, a long-term buy and hold strategy in greater Los Angeles, or a high-end Manhattan Beach Sand Section development, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has maximized returns based on current market conditions.
Long-Term Investment: Buy and Hold Strategies
While quick liquidation of real estate assets have maximized returns for our team of investors, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has successfully diversified its company portfolio to include investment opportunities in buy and hold, income-producing real estate properties.
As market conditions improved, this business model continued to gain significant traction as Elwood Capital evolved to acquire a number of multi-family properties in markets in the greater Los Angeles area.
To date, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. has successfully invested in over $5 million of income-producing properties in the greater Los Angeles area that produce significant cash flow. As of 2014, Elwood Capital properties produce over $500,000 in gross income annually.
Investment in low-income, cash flow positive housing helps mitigate risk related to market cycle turmoil. Government-sponsored housing programs will continue to thrive under negative economic conditions. Elwood Capital Group, Inc. will continue to invest its capital and diversify into this asset sector as the real estate market cycles.
Short-Term Investment (“Fix and Flip”)
For the first few years after its inception in 2008, Elwood Capital’s core business model centered around acquiring distressed and under-valued residential properties in south Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. By adding value through property rehabilitation, as well as improving property management strategies, Elwood Capital Group, Inc. was able to deliver exceptional returns.
Within a 4-year span, Elwood Capital had successfully purchased, rehabilitated and sold 20 Los Angeles based properties under its company portfolio with no prior experience. After almost 7-years, that number has significantly increased with a successful track record and growing investor base.
Strategic buying strategies, paralleled with an efficient rehabilitation and construction process allows Elwood Capital to maximize its return on investment as market conditions continue to thrive. This short-term, “fix and flip” strategy will continue to be a staple in the Elwood Capital portfolio of services as market conditions remain favorable.
Real estate value in Los Angeles continues to sore at a rapid pace, especially in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Elwood Capital has successfully pivoted from its humble roots in South Los Angeles, and has transitioned to capture significant market share in the high-end development cycle.
Led by high-end developer Richard Haynes, Elwood Capital has been one of the leading firms that have added value to the high-end residential community in the South Bay. Potential for attractive yields, paralleled with unique demographic and financial characteristics of the South Bay has resulted in this high-end real estate market becoming a primary asset class under the Elwood Capital portfolio.
Gaining marketshare in the high-end real estate development market will continue to be a concentrated effort for Elwood Capital Group, Inc. High profile developments have yielded the highest return for our investors, and Elwood Capital looks to be a major player in this space as this asset class becomes more and more valuable under the company’s portfolio.
