Our turn-key rental program delivers equity-optimized cashflow properties for investors building their real estate portfolios.
Restore 818 Inc. makes it simple for investors to profit from the dynamic South Florida real estate market regardless where they live. We provide two fully managed options for you to invest securely and confidently with no hassles and no headaches:
1. Passive investment through actively Managed Short-Term (fix & flip) Investments
2. Hassle-free buy & hold investment through our Turn-key Rental Property Program
At Restore 818 Inc. we are experts in the acquisition, design, renovation and development of investment properties. We find, buy and transform extreme fixer-uppers into high return real estate investments for our investors and ourselves. At the same time we create quality living spaces for home-buyers and renters. With a combined experience of over 40-years in real estate investment, design/build, architecture and interior design we are uniquely qualified to bring a true 360-degree approach to each project.
With our Managed Short-Term Investments we reliably generate strong returns through our specialized niche of professionally designed restorations of single-family homes for immediate resale to discriminating buyers in targeted mid and upper markets. When serving buy & hold investors through our Turn-Key Rental Property Program we help you achieve alpha returns with our ability to bring single-family, multifamily and commercial properties to their highest-and-best-use for a strong initial equity position and maximized cash flow.
We handle everything on the ground for our investors in both short and long-term real estate investments including; target market analysis, property acquisition, design, project management, marketing for sale or rental, and property management.
The primary operating philosophy of Restore 818 rests in the name — RESTORE. We are value investors focused on acquiring undervalued properties with solid structures and hidden architectural value, then professionally designing and building out these properties packed with affordable luxury. When fully rehabbed these properties create alpha returns for our investors via high resale value and/or cash flow. Thanks to the strong demand our properties generate from buyers and renters we typically experience much shorter sale and lease times than market averages.
Our investment strategy is value-driven in both the short and long-term. We firmly believe that a strong equity position is key to securing investment positions, no matter what type of property or hold period. The only way to secure a significant equity position is to target properties in distress, disrepair or those that in their current state fail to meet the highest-and-best-use fro a subject property.
On short-term (fix & flip) investments this proposition may be more obvious. But on buy & hold properties it seems many investors forget the foundational strength of a strong equity position.

We target properties in the path of city/county improvement projects and expanding areas of gentrification to achieve accelerated appreciation over hold periods typically for three to five year terms.
This unique value-based investment opportunity in South Florida lies not only in single-family and multi-family properties. South Florida has an abundance of mid-century commercial and multifamily buildings with significant architectural character un-paralleled in in new construction. Fortunately for us as investors many of these properties have been neglected over the years and are in desperate need of repair, renovation and modernization.
As we have seen with buyers of for our single-family homes the shifting demographics of South Florida, Eastern Fort Lauderdale in particular, has a strong leaning to a “preserve and restore” mindset. Therefore we see targeting this redevelopment niche as a unique competitive advantage in the single-family, commercial and multifamily market.
