COMPANY OVERVIEW

APPA Real Estate provides accredited investors opportunities to invest their capital alongside experienced operating partners who have a proven track record of successfully delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns.

As a real estate investment firm, our goal is to help investors build long-term wealth and passive income streams through a diversified offering of multifamily value-add and development investments located in growing regions across the Western U.S.

Our senior management team has been investing on behalf of institutional advisors, pension funds, private equity firms and individual investors for the past 20 years. We believe the apartment market, as an investment class, offers investors greater returns with less risk than other investments. Because we generally target middle-market opportunities, our assets are less reliant on business cycles for occupancy, giving way to a stronger tenant base and lower vacancy rates.

INVESTMENT FOCUS

ACQUISITION STRATEGY

SUSTAINABILITY

We focus on providing workforce housing and coliving properties. The term “workforce” is used to represent employed individuals who are not typically eligible for government subsidies or traditional affordable housing programs. Often, these individuals are “essential workers” within the community, whether they’re teachers, nurses, other health-care workers, or city or county employees. Workforce housing is very much in short supply in our primary markets.

Coliving is newer form of community living wherein members share housing, often in furnished homes with plentiful common areas, and still receive their own private bedroom and bathroom. Coliving has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional apartment rentals in major cities like Los Angeles due to its improved affordability, flexibility, and value. Students, digital nomads, newly-relocated individuals and families, and even corporate travelers all can benefit from the sense of community and increased amenities that are often found in coliving buildings.

APPA targets distressed assets within well-established markets that are familiar to us. We pursue two primary types of distressed opportunities: asset-owner distress and building distress. Asset-owner distress exists when a current property owner has experienced various challenges that must be solved independently of the market and or building. On the other hand, building-distress exists when physical assets may not have been properly maintained and or are not up to current codes and therefore require significant capital expenditures and workout expertise to turnaround. Both types of distress present unique opportunities and challenges that exist throughout the full economic cycle, thus offering APPA the ability to succeed through up and down markets.

Our goal is to deliver a real, physical asset that outperforms today’s building standards. At APPA, we strive to meet or exceed California Title 24 and LEED building standards. APPA strives to leverage and embrace existing public transportation options such as Metro rails, bike-ability, walkability, and ride-share alternatives.
