Local Market Knowledge Matters

Renovo invests in investors – and to do that with confidence requires a deep market understanding. Unlike national lenders who are limited to relying on lagging sales data, Renovo brings local knowledge and relationships that help identify markets that are “in-play” before the broader data reflects the changes. For investors, that can mean an early green light on a transitioning neighborhood, or advice to seek a deal elsewhere with better exit forecasts.


Renovo’s deep ties within the Chicago market provides insight to larger economic investments and trends. Layered with historical data and real-time boots-on-the-ground insight, Renovo investors receive the benefit of improved decision making and the flexibility to get into transitioning markets faster.
