A private real estate investment firm specializing in medical facilities in the Baltimore and washington metropolitan areas

Our firm

Baltimore REIT was formed in 2018 by investment professionals with deep contacts in the finance and healthcare sectors in the Maryland area. With significant access to the political and regulatory landscape via our network, we are uniquely positioned to acquire undervalued assets with strong return potential. 

Our portfolio managers will create value in four main areas:

  • Improvements to building systems which lower costs, optimize energy efficiency, and have rapid payback periods
  • Deployment of technology to improve productivity and operational efficiency
  • Expanding the breadth of services at the facilities
  • Rationalizing operations with lower profitability

The fund will target single-tenant buildings leased to leading hospitals,  universities, government agencies, and healthcare companies. We will also target multi-tenant buildings with doctors, dentists, and hospital tenants.

Types of Properties We Seek To Acquire

  • Property values between $5 million and $25 million
  • Cap rates above 9.5%
  • Three years of operating history with verifiable tenant cash flows
  • Located in areas with favorable demographics
  • Properties that can benefit from tax-free zones or tax credits
  • Assets being sold as part of litigation or restructurings

We expect to launch our first fund, Medical Offices Fund I, in the first quarter of 2019 and it will only be available to accredited  investors. The fund will target annual returns of 20% over a five to ten year time horizon. Please contact healthcare@baltimorereit.com for more information.
