Acquisition Strategy

Birge & Held seeks stable apartment investment markets with less volatility in its 10 year occupancy rates.

Apartment projects that will provide strong cash on cash returns for its investors.

Long term fixed debt typically with HUD's 223(f) provides 35 year fixed financing.

Favorable debt coverage ratios to provide a margin of safety.

Apartment projects that have rents which will not support new construction in the area which effectively creates an "economic moat" for our investment.

Typically, our communities have middle class residents who desire an affordable living situation.

Historically, well positioned real estate is one of the best hedges against inflationary risk.
