Sponsored by Behringer and formed in 2007, Opportunity REIT II acquires and operates commercial real estate and real estate-related assets. Particularly, it focuses on commercial properties that have significant possibilities for capital appreciation, such as those requiring development, redevelopment, or repositioning, those located in markets and submarkets with high growth potential, and those available from sellers who are distressed or face time-sensitive deadlines.
Its investment strategy also includes investments in real estate-related assets that provide opportunities for higher current income.
