About The Company

MULTIFAMILY INVESTMENTS

COMPANY BACKGROUND

Avenue North, LLC was founded in 2011 and seeks to develop new multifamily communities and also acquire Value-Add income property with an emphasis on Multifamily Investment. We analyze under valued assets in markets with strong demographic trends and positive secular growth. The company has obtained Superior Returns by acquiring properties that require rebranding, transformation through renovation, and intense asset management, and managing ground-up development. Avenue North focuses on place-making to achieve above market rents. Through thoughtful renovations and expert marketing, tailored to each property and the context of the neighboring community, we strive for the best performance from each asset.

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, closing costs and for-sale housing prices continue to rise, along with other factors impacting home ownership. We believe renters want to save money now, more than ever, and are actively seeking affordable housing options such as brand new multifamily homes or renovated class B/C communities, affording such investments steady rent growth and profitability for our investors.

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
