What We Do
Capital Growth Through Multifamily Development
We believe having the ability to passively grow your hard earned savings results in Freedom and Opportunity! Freedom to enjoy life when, where and how you want, and the opportunity to enact this freedom. For us this means being able to take exciting vacations, enjoying the best culinary experiences, providing our kids with excellent education, and looking after the whole family with the best medical care. We hope this rings true for you too!
See the Why Invest page for why we believe NEW multifamily development in Texas offers the best returns on your investment with the lowest capital risk.
This first phase sets up the whole investment, including operational efficiency and exit returns for investors.
We spend many months researching and visiting locations to source the most ideal land, performing market analysis, professional due diligence, going through civil engineering, design, permitting, and actual construction.
Construction not only leverages our years of ground-up projects but ability to bring together a top team from contracts attorney, architects, engineers, through suppliers, QA/QC, latest high-tech & amenities, and energy efficiency expertise.
Operating a multifamily asset is a very important phase in delivering the best exit for investors, as pricing is determined by CAP rate. I.e. multiple on net operating profit. New construction is superior to value-add on both sides of the income minus expenses equation; we can command the highest rents and drive the most efficiencies (warranties on construction and appliances, least maintenance, energy efficiency, etc).
We oversee operations but employ highly experienced management teams for day to day running and leasing functions. Yes we even analyze competitor reviews to understand issues and mitigate.
As the exit shortly after stabilization is part of our strategy, we are able to deliver predictable returns to our investors. We also like to be fully liquid after each deal so we and our investors are left with the freedom of choice; roll over into another investment, keep as cash, or do whatever makes most sense at that time. We do not lock investor capital in for longer than necessary, and certainly not for a second cycle 'refresh' or wait on market appreciation.
Our goals of maximizing investor returns and customer satisfaction remain in focus from project initiation to exit.
