    Who leads Yoke?

    What kinds of properties does Yoke invest in?

    Yoke specializes in affordable housing. Today, we focus on naturally occurring affordable housing (properties with below-market rents that aren’t government-subsidized). We work to preserve affordable housing by maintaining reasonable rents and adding units in underutilized spaces. We build long-lasting relationships with tenants and the broader community through our work.

    Why affordable housing?

    Affordable housing has historically shown stability and strong performance, especially in challenging economic environments. This starts with the fact that there often isn’t enough affordable housing to meet demand, which keeps vacancy rates very low. Skyrocketing home prices and a shortage of new homes on the market reinforce this demand by making renting more appealing. Finally, a range of public-sector investments (subsidized rents, tax incentives, and attractive financing) provide liquidity and return enhancements unique to the affordable housing asset class.

    Who manages Yoke properties?

    Yoke partners with Scope Property Management, an affordable housing specialist focused on the Mid-Atlantic region. Scope has a 10-year track record and a portfolio of nearly 1,000 units valued over $70M.

    Who are your other partners?

    Yoke works with established partners that share our commitment to affordable housing. For example, on a recent project we received an acquisition loan from The Reinvestment Fund, a mission-driven community development financial institution.

    Investment Strategy

    How does the investment model work?

    After buying a building, Yoke makes improvements, fills vacancies, and provides quality property management. When the building’s occupancy and net operating income stabilizes, Yoke refinances the building’s mortgage into a long-term mortgage with a lower interest rate. This generates a larger stream of passive cash flow for Yoke’s investors in the building. After about ten years, the building is an attractive investment for an outside buyer: it has been upgraded, is fully rented, and is well-managed. These factors, plus the natural appreciation of the property and the property’s neighborhood, allow us to sell the building for a profit.

    How does Yoke select projects?

    We work with brokers across the DMV region to ensure we have access to a wide range of opportunities (if you’re a broker and have properties that fit our criteria, please get in touch!). We review dozens of potential deals each year and run a thorough financial analysis, taking into account the condition of the building, the amenities and trajectory of the neighborhood, and data from comparable properties

    What are the features of a typical project?

    We focus on affordable, multifamily apartment buildings in the DMV area (DC, Maryland, and Virginia). These buildings can range in size from several units up to 100 units.

    What’s an example of a recent project?

    In 2021 Yoke acquired The Langdon, a 13-unit building in Northeast DC. We’re improving the building and filling vacant units while preserving affordability. This includes a partnership with The Journey Community Development Corporation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, to provide property tax relief and support tenants with programming.

    Investing with Yoke

    How do I learn more about a specific project?

    We’re happy to send you a detailed investor presentation for each property in our pipeline. The Yoke team is available to answer any questions that aren’t covered in the presentation.

    How do I invest?

    When you’re ready, Yoke will share a subscription agreement with the legal and financial terms of the investment. After signing the agreement and wiring your investment funds, you’re in!

    What do I actually own when I invest in a Yoke property?

    Yoke forms a limited liability company (LLC) for each property it acquires. You will own an interest in that LLC. As revenue flows to the LLC through ongoing operations and the eventual sale, you’ll receive a portion of those funds.

    Will I be responsible for any property management or other decision-making?

    No. Investors are limited partners in the project, which means that they have a passive role and are not involved with ongoing management of the property. After you make your investment, Yoke handles the rest.

    Am I legally liable for the activities of the LLC?

    As a limited partner your liability is limited to the value of your investment. Liability does not extend to your personal assets.

    Do I need to be an accredited investor?

    No. We design our projects to be accessible to a range of investors, both accredited and non-accredited.

    What is the minimum investment?

    It varies depending on the project size, but $50,000 is a common minimum investment.

    After Investing

    What happens after I invest?

    The hard part is done! Yoke and our partners will get to work on completing the purchase, renovating the building, filling empty units, and managing the property. We’ll share regular updates during this process.

    Will I get distributions? How often?

    Once the project is stabilized and generating positive net income (usually within 1-2 years), investors will receive operating cash flow distributions each year.

    How can I stay updated on the project?

    As an investor, you’ll receive regular email updates on the project’s operations, finances, and overall progress. If you have specific questions, reach out to us anytime.

    How do I report this on my taxes?

    We’ll send you a K-1 form each year with the details of your interest in the project. We recommend consulting with a tax professional for specific guidance.

    How long is the holding period?

    Yoke plans to hold most investments for 10 years. However, we have some flexibility to sell the property between 7 and 13 years, based on market conditions and sale opportunities. This helps to ensure we get the best deal possible.

    What happens after Yoke sells the property?

    Yoke will pay all final costs related to the sale and determine the total proceeds remaining. These proceeds will be divided according to the subscription agreement and distributed to each investor.
