We have established relationships with property managers, real estate brokers and bankers so that we can enjoy a first-mover advantage and ideally purchase attractive properties before they hit the mainstream market.
Prequalifying our partner investors is a key part of this process that allows our team to move quickly on preferable acquisition targets. We realize that not every investment opportunity will be a good fit for all of our partner investors, so we believe in a simple opt-out policy.
