Investment philosophy

Due to ongoing urbanisation, we focus on new residential projects in prosperous regions with economic and educational centres.

Functional, sustainable, and economically attractive residential projects are created using systematic planning, modules, and the latest manufacturing methods – all managed by weisenburger invest.

Services

Strategies and ideas

Developing new property investment products and optimisation taking investment and tax law into consideration are key activities. The “manufacturing” approach is especially important here so that, in effect, each new product can be tailored to a specific investor group or even an individual investor. Working closely together in a relationship characterised by trust as well as continuous fine-tuning are fundamental requirements for successfully launching a new product./

Portfolio management & Finance

Portfolio management involves holistic owner representation for indirect real estate investments. These include controlling transaction and asset management as well as meeting all of our customers’ requirements under investment law. The aim is to generate an attractive risk/return profile and above-average performance, which includes optimising all other value-relevant parameters such as financing and taxes.

Letting management

The letting strategy during the project development phase and the successful letting services sustainably secure the planned income, making an important contribution to the continuous stability and increase in the value of a property. Acquiring new tenants and retaining existing tenants are at the forefront of daily activities across all types of use. A special type of expertise is required for the initial letting and organisation of the occupation of new-build quarters.

Transaction management

Identifying acquisition opportunities, performing legal/taxation, technical and commercial due diligence and then later on, selling properties are what weisenburger invest is all about. Properties offered by external providers are also assessed alongside preferential access to project developments in the weisenburger Group. Many years of established business relationships with relevant market participants ensure a full deal pipeline.

Asset management

In asset management, the investor’s performance targets are realised on a real estate level. This includes planning and implementing modernisation and development measures, but also area and tenant restructuring, right up to repositioning properties. The aim is to increase value added potential through active real estate management.
