About Us

We buy properties that have broken operations we know how to fix, limited renovation risk, and favorable buying dynamics

We target properties where the rents are below market, there are opportunities for new income streams, leasing and tenant screening can be improved, and expenses can be lowered.

We mitigate capital risk by avoiding properties that are more likely to have unexpected capex costs.

We buy at lower prices by focusing on properties with favorable buying dynamics such as the owner selling for non-economic reasons, there’s low cost assumable debt, or the seller is absentee and needs to sell.

Higher Rates Create Buying Opportunity

Over the next 12-18 months, owners will be forced to sell at low prices as floating and term debt matures.

Fewer Buyers Right Now Means Less Competition

The current multifamily buyer pool is at historic lows, with properties sitting on the market and buyers setting terms.
