About Peninsula Capital Corporation
Peninsula Capital Corp. (“PCC”) acquires and manages Single Family Rental (SFR) housing in upstate New York. PCC was formed to provide a differentiated investment opportunity and invest in residential properties that provide stabilized high cash flow opportunities with targeted cap rates in excess of 10%. PCC’s growth is focused on and specialized in identifying and acquiring stabilized and near stabilized houses with a strong tenant base. Approximately 95% of houses are acquired off-market via private sale and sourced using PCC’s deep market knowledge and experience. With the internalization of property management in 2019, PCC has significant “boots on the ground” and a back office firmly in place, to manage both local and regional growth from a central location. PCC chose to initially invest in Buffalo, NY and is considering other similar rust belt markets that are attractively priced and cash flow rich. Our investments are underwritten solely based on the merits of cashflow – house value appreciation is pure upside. Existing portfolio consists of 216 houses (326 units in total), with plans to expand in Buffalo and elsewhere regionally.
