Our acquisition team follows a detailed and analytical approach. Using our proprietary database and analytical tools, we determine the market and property that we believe suits our investment strategy best. Our experience and market relationships help further finalize our decision. The acquisitions process includes:
- Market & Submarket Analysis. We take a hands-on approach, spending time in each market to determine the core drivers and to develop our action plan. If we believe the market is potentially a good fit, we analyze population, job growth, competition, location, pricing, and other investment metrics.
- Property Analysis. Although a property’s historical performance [SS1] serves as a useful underwriting guide, we build our own pro forma based on experience in the market and expectations of future performance. We perform sensitivity analyses to test the volatility of returns in varying market conditions and to determine the hold period; these analyses ensure that the property meets our investment standards.
- Due Diligence. Once in contract, we begin a detailed process involving inspections by third-party groups, on-site visits by our team, legal analysis, physical analysis, and lender analysis. All assumptions are tested in light of new discoveries.
- Business Plan. From our analysis and findings, we develop a business plan outlining capital structure, capital improvements, hold period, and investment strategy. We design the plan to limit risk and to create the highest value possible for investors.
Before purchasing the asset, we work to ensure we realistically define the transaction risks, exit strategies, investment structure, market dynamics, and performance targets. The asset manager will focus on driving performance and enhancing asset value by
- Developing asset-level strategic business plans that outline how to reposition the asset or improve investment appeal
- Continuously monitoring and managing asset performance and management teams
- Providing timely and informative reports to investors
