Real Estate Is a Critical Part of a Sound Investment Portfolio
Real estate assets are a key component of a diversified investment portfolio.
The real estate asset class has a low correlation to stocks and bonds
Real estate has historically performed well during times of inflation, with rents increasing higher than inflation
Real estate is a lower volatility investment based on historical returns when compared to popular asset classes such as stocks, bonds, and commodities
Real estate has many tax advantages, allowing investors to receive tax-advantaged cash flow and appreciation in many projects
Adding real estate to your portfolio may reduce volatility while building tax-advantaged long-term wealth.
Protection Against Inflation
During high inflation times, higher interest rates create more renters which leads to higher rents
Real estate appreciates over time, while rent income may generate positive cash flow
Tax-Efficient Wealth Creation
The U.S. tax code provides substantial tax incentives for real estate investors
High Returns, Low Volatility
Multifamily real estate has had very high annual returns with very low annualized risk over the long haul
Build-to-Rent Real Estate
Build to Rent is still the best asset class
NOVEMBER 9, 2021
We are an early adopter of the BTR revolution, with five current BTR projects well underway. With a staggering 60% of Americans lacking the funds to buy a home, the BTR industry is exploding. And as record-high housing prices continue to rise higher, BTR is expected to see even more demand. BTR is already the fastest growing vertical in real estate! UGRO is creating luxury communities that affluent renters seek out for their outstanding living environment and amenities. We aim to provide a first-class tenant experience while generating industry-leading returns for our investors.
STRONG COMMITMENT TO ESG IDEALS
ESG Is at the Heart of Our Approach to Building Best-in-Class Rental BTR Communities.
UGro’s extensive ESG policy has nine facets, detailed below. Inspired by the modern lifestyle, our passion lies in building thriving communities in the best neighborhoods. We welcome families and individuals from every walk of life who share one thing in common — the love of home. At UGro, we develop newly built BTR homes exclusively for rent in exceptional neighborhoods and we believe that better living starts with a great neighborhood, fantastic amenities, and a zero-maintenance lifestyle.
At least 50% of all homes are Delos certified homes with air and water filtering.
UGro incorporates botanical elements into our communities. Our biophilic design has vertical gardens, pocket parks, green walls and boxwoods for holistic wellness-living.
EV Charging is standard
Every UGro home has a garage with EV enabled charging. And all communities have EV charging stations.
Sustainable community amenities
We build communities with playgrounds, dog parks, walking trails, picnic tables, barbeque grills, pools and fitness centers.
Maximum energy saving
Every UGro home has 100% LED lighting, double glazed windows and high quality insulation.
Energy star appliances only
Every UGro home has 100% energy star appliances.
High efficiency plumbing
Every UGro home has water saving toilets and low flow plumbing fixtures.
100% smart homes
UGro homes come with smart thermostats, door bells and other smart devices.
Solar pilot being developed
UGro is currently working on a solar panel pilot with a goal to make solar panels standard in most UGro projects.
WELLNESS BY DESIGN
Wellness Real Estate
Delos Branded Wellness residences can command up to a 35% sales premium, and up to a 10% rental premium.
Today, tenants want a healthy environment with clean air and pollutant-free water. Through our exclusive partnership with Delos, the world leading wellness real estate brand, we are able to respond to the needs of today’s luxury residents. UGRO homes will feature Delos’ Wellness Solutions Premier offering, a combination of products, features, technologies, and services to create and maintain indoor environmental conditions that are designed to enhance the physical and emotional well-being of our residents.
We have created the ideal convergence of technology, luxury, real estate, and wellness with a product that epitomizes what a branded wellness residence should look and feel like. Investment properties with wellness amenities experience faster lease-up and have longer tenancies. In addition to benefitting from enhanced returns, our investors become part of a social mission to offer a healthier living environment.
UGro incorporates botanical elements into our communities with the highest standards of design in mind. We offer the same extraordinary lifestyle experience as one would find in the most sought-after exclusive international developments, but at an attainable price point. Our biophilic design has beautiful botanic aspects (vertical gardens, pocket parks, green wall and boxwoods, ‘secret garden’ themed landscaping) for a holistic wellness-living concept in luxury settings.
