Methodical, Data-Driven Investing
Our strategy for the U.S. market identifies new markets and compelling investment opportunities that provide a high standard of affordable living in balanced economies.
We invest in class B and C buildings that we can acquire for below replacement cost, with a plan to improve the overall quality of the properties with strategic follow-on investment. Our renovation and capital team design and plan to improve property finishes, increase rental rates, stabilize occupancy, and generate increased cash flow. Our strategic investment model also allows us to operate in a space unique to our competitors — in addition to larger properties, we invest in smaller high-yield buildings to consolidate multi-family property assets and build a strong portfolio.
Our analysis of potential markets takes into account a range of criteria, including population forecasts and rent growth, the economic proportion of “essential workers,” as well as economic diversification. We focus on vibrant secondary markets with stable employment and the potential for growth. As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic unfold, we continue to target promising markets across the Unites States.
