This seasoned private equity fund boasts over 15 years of investment experience, offering a flexible mandate to initiate robust LP equity investments primarily in multi-family properties. Central to their investment approach is partnering with local operators equipped with in-house property management capabilities. This strategic focus enables sponsors to gain insights into sub-market dynamics and operational controls, enhancing the potential for significant returns on investments.

Their investment commitments typically range from $1-30 million, structured within 90/10 or 80/20 joint ventures. While they maintain flexibility in equity contribution splits, they prioritize substantial “skin in the game” from their sponsor partners.

Emphasizing cash flow as a primary underwriting metric, the fund targets deals with strong initial cash returns of at least 5.0% by year 1, escalating to high single digits by year three. They strategically target markets exhibiting favorable rent and economic growth dynamics to achieve these cash-on-cash returns.

Notably, the fund’s advantages include the ability to underwrite smaller LP checks and invest in various asset vintages, including properties from the 80s, 70s, and selectively the 60s, provided there are sufficient capex reserves and renovation plans to mitigate potential unforeseen expenses. Additionally, their streamlined and experienced deal team enables swift decision-making, with initial feedback typically provided within a week and the potential to close transactions in 3-4 weeks or less, contingent upon the completion of third-party processes.
