Who are we ?

The only community of private individuals specialized in the real estate of car park, garage, cellar, furniture storage and commercial premises !

Founded on January 5, 2013, the Club d’Investisseurs dans les Parkings et les Garages (CIPG) helps individuals to invest in the parking property niche (car park, garage, cellar, box, warehouse, shed, storage space, premises, etc…). We support first-time buyers and develop a community of owners free of the professionals of the sector. Based on a totally unique concept. Mutual assistance and sharing of experiences thanks to the different professional backgrounds of the members (law, finance, commerce, industry, etc…). The experiences and motivated opinions of all are important to move forward, exchange and learn from each other. The aim of this platform is to provide members with a wide range of tools. We create relationships between people wishing to invest in car parks and garages and those who are already owner-donors.

Redesign of the site and the exchange platform

Christopher reinvests all the contributions to improve the site.

Discovery of the real estate niche

It was in 2012 that Christopher had the opportunity to invest in 5 parking spaces. Spaces located in the covered car park of a small residence.

Birth of the club

Souvent en déplacements professionnels, Christophe devait trouver le moyen de répondre aux questions basiques de ses locataires ; et de communiquer sérieusement avec eux. L’idée de créer un site internet pour faire ce lien entre locataires et propriétaire est née. Rapidement, Christophe a été sollicité et rejoint par Thierry propriétaire d’un garage. Puis Anne-Marie souhaitant démarrer une activité d’hivernage de camping-car et de caravane dans sa ferme. D’autres personnes ont rejoint le noyaux dure du club : Olivier, Anthony, Valérie…

Often on business trips, Christopher had to find a way to answer his tenants’ basic questions; and to communicate seriously with them. The idea of creating a website to make this link between tenants and landlord was born. Quickly, Christopher was solicited and joined by Terry, owner of a garage. Then Maria wanted to start a wintering activity for motorhomes and caravans in her farm. Other people joined the hard core of the club : Oliver, Tony, Valery…

For 2 years, its pillar members have spent a lot of time boosting their rental profitability and buying other locations to build up a strong experience.

Over the years, new meetings with investors have helped the club grow ; diversify the experience and therefore expand the topics published on the site. At the beginning of 2015, we experienced a decisive turning point with the multiplication by 5 of the number of members passing the symbolic 100 member bar. Thus propelling our community to the forefront with a cumulative experience of 411 parking spaces. Christopher, the club’s manager, decided in August 2018 to reinvest the entire membership fees to redesign the site and the exchange platform.

Today, we represent a community of over 2500 investor and landlord members active in this niche real estate market. Our club has quickly become the reference in the field with the profitability of each of our members’ locations ranging from 6 to 36% gross. We master many techniques to boost returns and generate consistent passive income for our members.

Success stories from some members of the community

Membre fondateur CIPG

Christopher is a founding member of the Club of Investor in Parking lots and Garages (CIPG), this sales engineer in his thirties arrived in the parking niche by chance after a bad experience with rental real estate for housing. He began his investments in parking in 2012 with the purchase of a lot of 5 parking spaces. This jack-of-all-trades loves to diversify his investments, he has since bought several garages, taken out an emphyteutic lease and created a company. He has acquired a warehouse and launched a furniture storage business, winter storage of camper vans, caravans and vintage vehicles.


Olivier

Oliver, after engineering studies and an MBA abroad, is now marketing manager in the industry. He has been interested in Parisian real estate for about twenty years ; after starting with apartments and especially maids’ rooms. He acquired his first lot of 5 car parks 5 years ago. Following this first successful investment in car parks, he has multiplied his investments in car parks by concentrating on basement sites located in big city. The car parks represent an axis of diversification that allows the leverage effect of credit thanks to the purchase in lots. It particularly appreciates the high yield, the absence of work to be carried out, the lower risk of non-payment and the decorrelation between the price trends of car parks and housing.
