WHY MULTIFAMILY?

Home ownership in the US has dropped to levels not seen since the 1960’s, and continues to steadily decline as down payments, student debt burdens, and for-sale housing prices continue to rise, along with other factors impacting home ownership. We believe residents are actively seeking affordable housing options, and we provide exceptional housing options through new multifamily homes and renovated communities.

MOBILITY

Allows renters great flexibility over single family housing

INFILL

Typically close to jobs, restaurants, and transportation corridors

DEMOGRAPHICS

Millennials delaying marriage and single family purchases, seniors downsizing.

STUDENT DEBT BURDEN

Record high loans limit buying power for single family housing borrowers

HOUSING DOWN PAYMENT

Does not require large buyer cash down payments

TANGIBLE

Housing can’t be outsourced, risks that affect other property types

TECHNOLOGY

Accretive to the sector but detrimental to others (e.g. Amazon impact on Retail)

INFLATION HEDGE

Short-term leases allow for quick adjustments when rents increase

DISCOUNT

B’s can be purchased at discounts to replacement cost
