G8 Capital Has Completed More Than 30 Bulk REO Portfolio Acquisitions

G8 Capital Is Successfully Helping Financial Institutions and Government Agencies Get Fair Wholesale Value for Their REOs and Loans Despite the Economic Downturn

LADERA RANCH, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2011) - G8 Capital announced today that it has surpassed 3,000 Single-Family REO properties acquired since 2008. Leveraging long-standing business relationships, G8 Capital continues to be one of the most active buyers of bulk single-family REO portfolios from banks and government agencies. The firm has completed more than 30 bulk REO portfolio acquisitions since 2008.

Although G8 Capital has successfully repaired and sold the large majority of REOs acquired, the firm has begun holding single-family properties in a growing rental portfolio. The firm has more than 350 single-family or condo properties being held as rentals today. G8 Capital's long-term strategies include lease-to-own and contract sales to tenants desirous to own homes. The firm has successfully worked with communities to restore blighted properties and neighborhoods.

"The G8 Capital team has established itself as a partner with sellers of REO portfolios," said Evan Gentry, president and CEO, G8 Capital. "The firm is well positioned to capitalize on the growing wave of REO properties and increased focus by banks and government agencies to move these REOs off their books."

G8 Capital is actively acquiring portfolios with assets throughout the United States with an emphasis in the Western states, Texas and Florida. G8 Capital has proven a valuable partner for sellers seeking to get fair wholesale value for their REO portfolios, as well as their performing and non-performing loan portfolios. Once acquired, G8 Capital works hands-on with borrowers and tenants to jointly seek creative solutions that work for all.
