Avistone’s Strategy

Avistone’s investment strategy focuses on the purchase of hotels in compelling markets where brand selection, capital improvements, repositioning, alignment with qualified operating companies, superior asset management and maximizing bottom-line cash flow can lead to stabilized yield and the potential for long-term capital appreciation. We mitigate risk by targeting properties in markets with proven demand or potential for job growth and innovation with total capitalization after improvements below their replacement cost. Development of new hotels will be considered on a limited basis where new supply warrants outsized returns.

Avistone’s Investment Strategy


Avistone targets hotels with the potential for consistent in place cash flow after capital improvements, potential rebranding and repositioning, and the implementation of superior operations and asset management.

Risk Mitigation

Avistone reduces investment risk by vetting historical market performance in locations where it acquires properties, and by working with industry leading analytics firms to project future market performance. Additionally, properties are acquired and improved at a combined capitalization below their replacement cost, thus mitigating investment risk should new construction occur in the marketplace.

Capital Appreciation

Avistone seeks to enhance capital appreciation by acquiring properties in dynamic and growing markets, improving properties to top-notch condition, positioning them with a strong brand, increasing daily occupancy and yearly operating income, amortizing debt and positioning the property for potential cap rate compression upon sale.
