Real estate investment

Sustainable and responsible returns with a pioneer’s approach

Residential real estate investment services

We offer productive and sustainable opportunities for investing in residential properties in Finland. We invest in projects at varying phases of their development – from investments in the early stages of planning to finished ones. 

We provide comprehensive services in the different risk and return categories of residential real estate investment, catering to investors’ different investment strategies. Our investments are made up of closed alternative investment funds and separately managed real estate funds. 

The services of real estate investment cover the entire life cycle of an investment:

  • Creation and implementation of investment strategy

  • Searching for and analysing investments in line with the strategy, and carrying out the transactions

  • Property development of new residential properties

  • Structuring of investments

  • Securing capital and funding from Finnish and international markets

In-house real estate development benefits investors

Avara is a seasoned and innovative property developer whose competence has grown uniquely strong over the decades. Our own project development forms a foundation for stable and sustainable returns, accounting for individual investment strategies.

Property development offers an opportunity for a better overall return, which is based on the comprehensive management of projects, from planning processes to construction management.

Our goal is for roughly 50 per cent of Avara’s new buildings to be residential property investments of our own property development.
