Over the last decade, the multifamily sector has maintained the highest occupancy levels, the least amount of volatility and the highest risk-adjusted returns of all other real estate asset classes. Multifamily also provides a more effective hedge against inflation than other sectors as short-term tenant leases allow for rent to be increased as the price of goods and services rise.
The sharp rise in the cost of homeownership and current preferences of young adults waiting longer to start families has increased the demand for rental housing overall. While there is minimal new supply of Workforce Housing coming onto the market, unlike luxury apartments, Sunstone’s tenant base represents the largest group of renters in the US.
In 2012, after 25 years in the real estate development business, John Maddux and John Hansen decided to launch a new company. Having weathered several economic cycles, the long-time business associates were looking for an asset class that provided positive returns with minimal downside risk.
They chose multifamily, specifically workforce multifamily, as the best alternative based on its performance and positive demand/supply dynamics. The asset class also fulfills their mission to create a product that delivers much needed housing for working class individuals and families and improves the communities in which they live and work.
