Building Legacy Wealth
DDIS is transforming blighted properties into Turnkey performing assets. The projected 25-30% market growth over the next 10 years bring long-term benefits for DDIS Asset Leverage and Disposition Strategy. This strategy balances asset holdings to maintain consistent cash flow with sales to the secondary market to maximize profitable gains.
Touching the Lives of People
Through our non-profit CHAMP Community Foundation, we help increase household income by training underemployed people of the community in skilled trades to fulfill the demand of new jobs and social enterprising opportunities. Over the next 10 years, we want to close the 50% gap in Average Median Income (AMI) between city of Detroit and the rest of Wayne County.
Changing Communities for the Better
Buying properties by the block secures our market share. Detroit is a block-by-block city where one block is productive, thriving, and at the top of the market, but the adjacent blocks are sporadic with blight and abandoned properties and vacant lots. DDIS considers the entire community where we purchase properties. We work with the city to integrate with the bigger plan for the region.
