Affordable Housing Management

Paradigm Management has a long established commitment to providing high quality affordable housing that meets the needs of residents, owners and tax credit syndicators. With over twenty-five years of experience managing both mixed income and 100% affordable communities, both residents and owners can be assured that a Paradigm managed property will be operated and maintained to the highest standard. Paradigm’s affordable housing experience includes management of properties with funding sources / restrictions that include Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), HOME funds, Tax-Exempt Bonds, Taxable Bonds, Section 8 vouchers, Permanent Supportive Housing, AHIF funds, and other local county programs. Whatever the funding source(s), Paradigm has the experience necessary to manage the property in a way that enhances value and protects the owner’s investment.

Paradigm has acquired or developed a number of properties in partnership with the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) in various combinations of bonds, construction and permanent loans, Federal LIHTC and Virginia historic rehabilitation tax credit programs. Paradigm Management is a VHDA Certified Management Company with an excellent reputation for effective management of affordable and mixed income communities. In addition, Paradigm has established strong working relationships with local government agencies wherever we operate.


Tax Credit Compliance

Paradigm has a team of dedicated and experienced Housing Credit Certified Professionals (HCCP) who have the training and experience necessary to ensure that the complicated requirements of any affordable housing program are met. With a proficient on-site staff and Compliance Department, affordable applications and annual re-certifications are processed efficiently.

Paradigm’s careful and consistent application of operational policies and procedures ensures that the owner’s tax credits are protected. Paradigm utilizes a multi-tiered process for the review of all files, at move-in and recertification to minimize errors and occurrences of non-compliance. Routine property inspections and file audits are done by the Compliance Department, assuring that both the property and property files are maintained to the highest standards.


Due Dilligence

During a property acquisition, Paradigm has a trusted and experienced team of individuals that are capable of undertaking a comprehensive evaluation of any asset type. Paradigm works with purchasers to develop a thorough due diligence process for the asset it is evaluating including a review of operating and capital budgets, market conditions, management efficiencies, physical asset condition and financial risk. Paradigm understands the importance of evaluating a business opportunity while mitigating risk and providing a return for the investor.  


Assets Repositioning

Paradigm has the experience and perspective to recognize when assets are no longer reaching their potential and need to be reevaluated for continued growth and opportunity. By approaching asset repositioning in a strategic and viable way, Paradigm has transformed properties into marketable assets through a variety of methods — substantial construction modifications, amenity space upgrades, conversion and/or redevelopment. Repositioning a multi-family asset can be a challenging process and Paradigm has the ability to uncover unrealized potential by guiding significant financial and sustainable policy decisions.
