The Essential Opportunity

Avenue Living targets class B and C multi-family properties in US markets that are often overlooked by our peers. We find value in investing in class B and C real estate where our team has curated a strategy to re-invest and upgrade each property.

The Avenue Living U.S. Real Estate Trust gives Canadians a unique, tax-efficient opportunity to invest in class B and C multi-family properties in the United States. There can be many barriers to investing in U.S. real estate, including finding an appropriate management team and vehicle for investment. The U.S. Real Estate Trust is a unique offering, built using a diligent data-driven, top-down analytical approach executed by a strong team of real-estate investment management professionals.

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.

Avenue Living Expertise Partnered with Local Expertise

Our team includes experts in U.S. real estate investment and strategic thinkers who understand and practice the Avenue Living philosophy. We also believe in having a community presence where we invest; we partner with best-in-class local companies to ensure we’re efficient and effective in every market. These partners include property managers, who help optimize occupancy and rent while ensuring residents have a safe, comfortable place to call home. Third-party property managers also provide services including marketing, leasing, maintenance, construction projects and renovation management.

Stewards of Capital

As with all our funds, we see ourselves as stewards of capital for investors in the U.S. Real Estate Trust. We approach every acquisition in a methodical and analytic way. We aim to offer a diversified product that generates healthy cash flow and provides us with ample liquidity.
