Opportunistic properties in real estate investing are generally properties that require a significant amount of rehabilitation in order to eventually bring in market rental rates. Properties requiring a greater amount of repairs, or rehabilitation, are generally considered high risk because the property has not yet proven whether it can indeed earn the forecasted rents once it is improved. Frequently, these investments are “ground-up” developments, which bring additional risk because of the various obstacles that arise between construction and bringing the property to market. Opportunistic investing is the riskiest strategy and has the potential for the highest earnings.
