New Scotland Development Companies consistently comes across discounted, off-market real estate investment opportunities.

We prefer to raise the capital for acquisition through potential private lenders like yourself! Acquiring discounted income properties in stable rental markets allows us to prioritize capital preservation for our investors. We also prioritize investment opportunities that provide opportunities to add value to the property through improved management and operations, as well as forced appreciation through renovations. We do not bet on market swings – we invest for cash flow and value.
