Along with the formation The Northwood Group we have formed Building Partner Investors (www.buildingpartnerinvestors.com).
The vision of BPI is to give small businesses the expertise and financial ability to increase cash flow and control for their businesses now and build long-term wealth for the future.
It does this by partnering with companies to acquire the buildings in which they operate their business by providing equity and access to financing and expertise in commercial real estate. Most typically BPI will put up half of the required equity to help a businesses buy their building.
The principals of BPI come from the commercial real estate brokerage industry where some interesting patterns emerged. Many successful business owners worked their entire lives generating a good income during their working years but failed to position themselves to have sufficient assets at retirement. One of the primary miscues was failing to acquire the real estate they use in their businesses from real estate agents for investors.
Building Partner Investors is the solution for businesses that want greater control of their facilities not only for their businesses but for the growth of their personal financial portfolio. Here’s how.
We understand how important working capital is and the concerns of tying up large amounts of cash. We use our cash to provide equity investment alongside business owners for building acquisitions.
What better partner to have than one with the knowledge to help you succeed?
Our relationships and great track record with lenders lead to better loan terms. We can even provide credit enhancement in certain cases where financing is challenging.
For those companies needing to sell their buildings but still want to occupy and maintain control we can provide liquidity through a sale/leaseback buying all or a share of your building .
