Nathan and Eda Walldorf have been investing in real estate in the Chattanooga area for over 10 years. They saw real estate investing as part of their retirement plan. Then the Walldorfs learned that they could scale up and invest in apartment buildings with groups of investors. From there, Walldorf Capital Ventures LLC was born. The Walldorfs have invested a great amount of time and money training under renowned multifamily apartment veterans and mentors, including Brad Sumrok and Grant Cardone, and networking with other investors nationwide, in order to become experts in apartment investing.
In their vision for Walldorf Capital Ventures, Mr. and Mrs. Walldorf said, “We saw an opportunity to offer investors exponential investment growth, tax savings, edging towards financial freedom, and creating generational wealth through multifamily investing. We also saw an opportunity to help people leverage their time and money, through this passive investment avenue, via a real/tangible and appreciating asset, that is very stable. This is an investment class usually reserved for insurance companies and corporations. Essentially, there’s a lot of opportunity for our clients to reap the benefits and double their initial investments via the growth in value of these assets.”
The Walldorfs also see apartment investing as a hedge against inflation in the current market. “You have few options nowadays when it comes to protecting your wealth. You can leave your funds in the bank or in the stock market and thanks to inflation and fluctuating markets, you can expect them to devalue and/or depreciate by as much as 9 percent – and rising. Alternatively, you can grow it securely, by investing in one of the safest asset classes out there, with projected returns ranging from 4-6 percent average annualized, added tax benefits, all the while receiving an upside, which allows one to double the total initial investment, in a period of 3-5 years, once the asset is sold and the business plan is executed.”
This year alone, Walldorf Capital Ventures has already partnered with other investors to create a team of general partners in three different apartment building syndications. Each partner offers a unique skill set, to help own and operate the apartment buildings as well as to communicate with investors.
Mr. Walldorf said, “A few years ago, I never thought that we could own an apartment building, but we now own 458 units as a general partners, and nearly 1,800 units as limited partners.”
The Walldorfs were publicly recognized by business mentor, Grant Cardone, in his recent Real Estate Summit in Miami, Fl., for their exponential business growth, and overall impact to their net worth, thanks to apartment investing. In one year alone, they have grown their portfolio from 16 units, to just under 2,000. The Walldorfs educate the public on how to invest in apartment buildings, in a knowledgeable manner, and give the public the opportunity to invest in apartment buildings by leveraging their expertise, said officials.
The Walldorfs said, a good financial advisor will tell you that you need real estate in your investment portfolio. Most people do not want to deal with the headache of managing a property manager or fixing up a rental home after it has been trashed by a tenant. Walldorf Capital Ventures takes care of that for investors and does it at scale. Unlike single family homes, apartment buildings do not have large dips in value. Apartments have proven to be a recession proof asset over the years, and a preferred investment of choice for multinationals who are experts in safeguarding their wealth. When people cannot buy homes, they rent. When housing prices are higher than people can afford, they rent. The millennial generation is putting a huge strain on the rental inventory, which is pushing up rents. When the rents and the income of an apartment building are pushed up, then the value of the property is pushed up.
