Building Classifications

Denotes the condition of a property as well as the quality of its location and amenities.

Building classifications are used to categorize properties based on their quality, age, and amenities. Classifications are typically used by investors, brokers, and other industry professionals to assess the value of a property and determine its potential for income generation. The most common classifications are Class A, Class B, and Class C, but there are also other classifications used in some markets.

What are building classifications? 

Building classifications are a way of categorizing properties based on their quality, age, and amenities. Classifications are typically used by real estate professionals to determine a property's value, the potential for income generation, and suitability for tenants.

The most commonly used classifications are Class A, Class B, and Class C. 

  • Class A buildings are typically newer properties that offer modern amenities and are located in prime locations. They are typically well-maintained and have high-end finishes and features. 

  • Class B buildings are typically a bit older and may not have all of the amenities of a Class A property, but they are still in good condition and offer reasonable amenities.

  • Class C buildings are typically older properties that may require some upgrades and renovations, but they can still be suitable for some tenants.

In addition to these classifications, some markets use other classifications to describe properties. 

For example

Some markets use Class D or Class E classifications to describe properties in poor condition that require extensive renovations.

Why are building classifications important?

Building classifications are important because they help investors, brokers, and other real estate professionals to assess the property value and determine the potential for income generation.

For example

Class A properties are typically more expensive to purchase or lease, but they may also command higher rental rates and offer potential for income generation. On the other hand, Class C properties may be less expensive to purchase or lease, but they may also have lower rental rates and require more maintenance and upkeep.

Building classifications can also help determine the potential risks associated with a property.

For example

Class A properties may be more desirable to tenants, but they may also be more vulnerable to market downturns or economic chan. Class C properties may be less desirable to tenants, but they may also be more resilient to economic downturns because they offer affordable options for tenants.

Building classifications are an important tool for real estate professionals to assess the value and potential of a property.

They are based on a variety of factors, including location, age, construction quality, and amenities, and are used to help determine a property's potential for income generation and suitability for different types of tenants.

Landa Holdings, Inc. ("Landa Holdings") operates the website (the "Site") and the mobile-based app (the "App"). Landa Holdings serves as manager to Landa App LLC and Landa App 2 LLC. From time to time, Landa Holdings may organize limited liability companies or series limited liability companies, such as Landa App LLC and Landa App 2 LLC, and will raise funds for these entities through the App by relying on offerings exempt from registration requirements pursuant to Regulation A under the Securities Act of 1933 (“Regulation A”). Such companies shall be collectively referred to herein as “Landa App”.

Neither Landa Holdings nor Landa App is a broker-dealer or an investment advisor. All securities-related activity is conducted through Dalmore Group LLC (“Dalmore”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA/SIPC, located at 525 Green Place, Woodmere, NY 11598. You can review the brokercheck for Dalmore. Banking services are provided by Evolve Bank & Trust, Member FDIC. By opening a custody account on the App, you agree to Evolve Bank & Trust’s Custodial Agreement.

All securities (“Shares”) are being offered by one or more series (“Series”) registered under Landa App. Investing in securities involves risks, and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investments such as those offered by Landa App are speculative and involve substantial risks to consider before investing, outlined in the respective offering materials and including, but not limited to, illiquidity, lack of diversification, and complete loss of capital. An investment in an offering constitutes only an investment in a particular Series and not in Landa Holdings, Landa App, or any of the underlying asset(s). investors should carefully review the risks located in the respective offering materials for a more comprehensive discussion of risks.

You should speak with your financial advisor, accountant, and/or attorney when evaluating any offering of securities. Neither Landa Holdings, Landa App, nor Dalmore makes any recommendations or provides advice about investments, and no communication, through this website or in any other medium, should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Nothing in this material should be construed as investment or tax advice, or a solicitation or offer, or a recommendation to buy or sell any securities. The Site and/or the App may make forward-looking statements. You should not rely on these statements but should carefully evaluate the offering materials in assessing any investment opportunity, including the complete set of risk factors that are provided as part of the offering circular for your consideration.  We urge you to review the applicable offering circular, available here.

Landa Holdings intends to conduct a securities offering by each Series registered under Landa App pursuant to Regulation A.  From time to time, Landa App will seek to qualify additional Series offerings of securities under Regulation A. For offerings that have not yet been qualified, no money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy Shares of a particular offering can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received until an offering statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") relating to that Series has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC. An indication of interest involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Investment overviews contained on the Site and/or the App contain summaries of the purpose and the principal business terms of the investment opportunities. Such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the applicable offering circular filed with the SEC. Neither Landa Holdings nor Landa App offers refunds after an investment has been made. Please review the relevant offering materials and subscription documentation for more information.

All Shares will be issued in electronic form only and will not be listed or quoted on any securities exchange. We expect that after a Series’ offering has concluded, the Public Private Execution Network Alternative Trading System, or PPEX ATS (the “Secondary Trading Platform”), which is registered with the SEC and operated by North Capital Private Securities Corporation (“North Capital”), will be a venue available for the resale of such Shares through Dalmore, as a broker-dealer member of the Secondary Trading Platform; provided, however, any such resale of Shares will be subject to federal and state securities laws and the restrictions in the Series’ Operating Agreement, and there can be no assurance that an active market for any Shares will develop on the Secondary Trading Platform, that the Secondary Trading Platform will be available to allow resales of Shares to residents of all states, or that the Secondary Trading Platform will be available at all. For these reasons, investors must be prepared to hold their Shares indefinitely.
