Why invest in multifamily real estate?

This is a big topic and we suggest you review our Learning tab. But here are some bullets to describe this in a nutshell to describe some of the upside to investing in multifamily …

  • The value of a property and equity in your investment are set by how the property is performing rather than fixed to the market as it is in single family investments

    • Demand for rentals has exceeded supply
    • Ownership no longer expected – “Echo Boomers”
  • Less Risk/ More Control
    • Equity and Value not directly dependent on market

Why is Texas an ideal market?

What is my role once I invest with IMFI?

The typical role of the investor is as a passive owner of the property. The investor is free of managing the asset or the day-to- day operations called TTT (Toilets, Tenants, and Trash). This type of investments gives the investor a hands-off approach to the investment with the benefit of ownership in a multifamily asset.

How do I stay informed when I invest with IMFI?

Investors are considered part of the team and are frequently communicated with regarding significant changes to the property. Additionally the investors are provided with monthly property operations reports as well as a periodic review of property operations (i.e., quarterly) to discuss operations, capital improvements, market updates, etc.

How are the multifamily investments structured?

Typically each multifamily asset is held by a single Limited Liability Company (LLC) with a single purpose to own and operate the asset. The investor(s) purchase shares of the LLC. The manager, IMFI, provides oversight of the LLC to manage the operations of the LLC and the property asset as well as the property management company operations.
