Since 2012, Equity Residences has been “Best in Class” among luxury real estate investment funds. We have out-performed our competitors and our new Equity Platinum Fund meets or exceeds the level of luxury and service offered by non-equity options such as Exclusive Resorts and Inspirato, as well as other equity models.
Our new Equity Platinum Fund maintains this status.
For example, we recently acquired one of the preeminent properties in the Northstar Resort at Lake Tahoe at a price that is already well below current market value. Designed by renowned architect Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the beautiful residence is located mid-mountain near the Ritz-Carlton Northstar.
This modern, progressive interpretation of the mountain home offers an escape with contemporary design and timeless comfort. Features include floor-to-ceiling windows for spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada and generous indoor and outdoor spaces for bringing families together.
Ski or snowboard directly out your back door from this spectacular residence. At the end of the day, glide back home and hang your boots on the boot warmer in the ski room before enjoying the outdoor hot tub and fire pit.
You will appreciate the expansive Sierra Nevada views from the living room or gourmet kitchen, which features Sub-Zero, Wolf and Bosch appliances, whitewashed hickory floors and cabinets. Take in a movie from the media room complete with big screen, pool table and sectional sofas. There is even a children’s play area downstairs. And you’ll have happy feet on those cold winter nights thanks to radiant floor heating.
Dual master bedrooms with ensuite baths provide ample space for two families in this 4-bedroom, 3.5- bathroom, 3,500-sq-ft mountain paradise that sleeps up to 14.
The Treehouse private club next door provides even more amenities, including year-round heated pool and spa, fitness center, basketball court, fire pit, game room, and Outfitter who provides personalized activity concierge service.
We asked the Outfitter Natalie about the list of possible activities and she said, “Truly, it is endless. If you ask we make it happen.” Natalie arranges chefs and nannies, any kind or level of private hiking, boating or ski experience, all-inclusive of gourmet lunches and private wines tastings. She has often arranged ski butler service to bring rental equipment to the home upon arrival. And the butler returns the equipment when you depart!
A weekend birthday adventure Natalie curated for one couple included a mountain sunset champagne tour, dinner prepared by a private interactive chef, husband-wife massages, and yoga. Prior to the couple’s arrival the entire home was decorated. As Natalie said, “You ask and we will deliver. Just come to the Treehouse and we are here to make your visit truly special.”
Equity Residences is superior to Exclusive Resorts, Inspirato and other Equity Clubs in a variety of ways:
|Best-in-Class Metrics||The Competition|
|Rent-Free Vacations||Inspirato makes you pay for your stays|
|Opportunity for No Annual Fees||All competitors require an annual fee|
|Dividend Opportunity||No one else allows you to receive an annual dividend|
|Low Upfront Fees||6% versus 20% to 100% of your initial investment|
|Defined Exit with Investment Gains||Few others give you upside potential on your investment|
Simply, Equity Residences offers the “Best-in-Class” luxury real estate investments. Our new Platinum Fund offers the potential to generate $780,000 in financial return and vacation value from a $260,000 investment. That is a potential annual return of 15%.
Fundamental to Equity Residences’ success is our proven expertise in acquiring homes at exceptional prices. Properties in our recently closed Equity Villa Fund have appreciated 40% to date. The Equity Platinum Fund Northstar property has appreciated 19% based on subsequent sales of sister properties. Current listings in the same development are 34% higher than our basis, creating the potential for an early $1 million profit from this property alone.
Exclusive Resorts and Inspirato are non-equity offerings that do not provide investment returns. In fact, they lease a majority of their properties. Other purported “equity funds” will tell you they hope to get your initial investment back after they take 20% or more off the top and you have paid annual fees year after year.
Equity Residences has quickly become the gold standard for luxury vacation home investment and enjoyment. Your first visit to our Northstar Lake Tahoe residence will convince you.
