Elevate Lens +

Real Estate Investing Strategy

Elevate Lens+ is our proprietary financial model used to evaluate all potential real estate investments. To be eligible for purchase by an Elevate Money REIT, properties must meet our rigorous standards and qualifications.


Our criteria are leases with 5 or more remaining years and with rental increases of 1% or more per year. We favor long-term, durable rental cash flows coupled with rental increases that we believe will keep pace with inflation.


"Investment Grade” tenant financial strength as rated by Standard & Poor’s is desired. If the tenant’s credit is not rated, we scrutinize tenant financial statements and the profitability of the property’s business operations.


Location is assessed by evaluating comparative rental rates with other properties in the area and analyzing local demographic trends. Properties with limited and quantifiable deferred maintenance are preferred.

Income is generated from monthly tenant rental receipts.

Capital appreciation

Capital appreciation, or the increase in a property’s value over time, is realized when a property is sold. If rents go up over time, those higher rents can translate into higher property values.

Portfolio Diversification

As 2020 taught us, you never know what's going to happen -- with the economy or in the world. So having your investments spread across different assets is one of the wisest moves you can make in the long run.
