As investment regulations in the Commercial Real Estate space have changed dramatically over the last ten years, so have the ways advisors have helped find alternative income streams for their client’s portfolio.  

Supplemental or replacement income is exceedingly important, especially income with potentially lower risk. Since the 1980s, RealSource Properties has utilized and refined a proprietary econometric model to select commercial multifamily properties. The model examines over 35 dynamic economic criteria that is reevaluated every year by the RealSource Economics Team. This model has assisted in nearly $1 billion of transaction history at RealSource. So, what are the big takeaways?

Takeaway #1: Your Fund Manager matters to the long-term success of your investment.  

In the 1980s, the RealSource Properties executive team advised major institutional investors on where to purchase Commercial Real Estate. Realizing their model effectively turned profits for these institutional clients, the group launched their own firm, RealSource, in 2003. Since then, RealSource has grown into RealSource Properties, a geographically diversified REIT focused on multifamily investments. RealSource’s acquisition process has been improved and tested over decades—and during times of market correction. Meet the executive team with a combined 100+ years of experience in commercial multifamily management.

The RealSource Properties team has developed in-house capabilities for acquisitions, asset management, development & construction, and property management. With these capabilities, RealSource can take full advantage of its institutional knowledge managing multifamily product and can implement efficiencies throughout its portfolio. 

Takeaway #2: Value-Add asset management strategies are effective for multifamily properties in markets of anticipated growth.

You’ll find RealSource Properties in markets like Texas, Ohio, and North Carolina, where their value-add strategy has the potential be maximized. Value-add asset management means on-the-ground, active management. NOI growth can be realized through an advantageous acquisition, a development plan that can raise a property’s value, or potentially through meaningful increases in rent rates.

Takeaway #3:  Current supply and demand trends means good news for multifamily investments.

Effectively located apartment homes in growing U.S. metros are more undervalued than most deep inside the real estate industry realize. Rising costs of living, coupled with increased replacement costs to build new housing, have resulted in a macro increase to many multifamily asset values.

An important issue has surfaced: rising single-family prices are causing more people to rent for longer, prolonging demand for already near-full apartment inventory. Consequently, multifamily in many metros is near term lows for vacancy levels and naturally pushing rent rates upward in many of the largest 50 metros.

In short, RealSource Properties is bullish on multifamily because the adage that everyone needs a place to live proves true in times of market appreciation and market correction.
