Autumn Properties’ primary objective is to increase the value of real estate investments for the benefit of Autumn Properties’ investors. Investors participate in a specific real estate project and share in the profits of that particular property. Each project involves identifying an undervalued real estate property, securing an investor, the purchase, renovation and sale of that property. The first and critically important step for every project entails finding an undervalued real estate property with substantial upside potential. Once a property has been identified, Autumn Properties creates a thorough renovation plan and budget for investors. After the real estate is purchased, Autumn Properties oversees the design and construction of that property’s improvements. Finally, Autumn Properties supervises the sale of the upgraded real estate.
