Build-for-rent: Beyond the basics

What it takes to finance, underwrite, and manage a BFR community

The Build-for-Rent (BFR) market has been gaining momentum consistently for the past few years, but in the past several months, we’ve seen activity in the space like never before. In our latest BFR webcast, we go a step beyond the basics to demonstrate the nuances of financing, underwriting, and managing a BFR property.

Our Build-for-Rent address numerous topics, including:

  • Growth of BFR: Is it outpacing traditional multifamily?
  • Ins and outs of financing: What does it take to get a deal done?
  • Underwriting and asset management: Is a unique approach needed?
  • BFR property management: What are the tips and tricks from a manager?
