Investor Perspective Series

Perspective creates opportunity.

The housing affordability crisis is one of the biggest issues facing America today. The U.S. housing market is 5.24 million homes short of what’s needed to meet this growing demand. Since 2018, there has been a 52% rise in the home shortage – because we’ve been underbuilding for 10 years. Much of this shortage lives in the asset class of essential housing – which fills the critical “missing middle” gap between luxury inventory and affordable, subsidized housing.

We believe we’ve found a solution that serves residents, investors, and our communities. We build new essential housing through our Link Apartments℠ brand in connected urban locations – all targeting rents affordable to residents earning 60-140% of area median income (AMI).

Listen to our leaders talk about what it is, how we do it and why we are different.
