Identifying the best in class in a specific marketplace is the foundation of every Willton investment. We capture the demand of housing generated by emerging industries, change in demographics and evolution of apartment communities.
We follow our investment criteria to select opportunities in the top 50 MSAs based on the total population, supply/demand, vacancy, job growth and median household income. In addition, we invest in submarkets that possess various economic drivers for economic growth, an underlying employment base of highly educated workers, household income above the national average, high barriers to entry, and a land basis difficult to replicate.
Our multi-family development projects are mainly mid-rise or low-rise buildings that are easy to construct, efficient to manage and competitive against replacement cost. Our value-add projects are characterized with significant potential for upgrade, renovation or operational improvement.
We take an active approach in asset management to manage and mitigate risk of investments post-closing. Our partnerships benefit from our expertise and flexibility in systematic risk control.
