Grubb Properties focuses on essential housing, which is urgently needed throughout the United States. Despite this need, very little new construction is built to meet this demand, which would serve the population between those needing affordable housing and those able to afford luxury housing. As experts in meeting this need for more than 60 years, we are also uniquely organized to seize on changing attitudinal, housing and social dynamics that fit with our strategic mission - To create places to live and work that inspire community, enable mobility, encourage well-being and deliver value.
As a vertically integrated company, Grubb Properties controls the full real estate life cycle of our investments: from funding, acquiring, and developing to leasing and managing. This structure enables smooth transitions between project stages and drives both cost savings and efficiencies that would not otherwise exist, giving us a competitive edge.

Our investment strategy is focused on essential housing, which we believe to be one of the most resilient and yet one of the least-talked-about and most undersupplied asset classes.
The golden rule for us is location, basis and design. To meet the demand for essential housing, we use a number of creative development methods such as innovative site acquisition, a shared parking strategy, design efficiencies, partnerships and pursuing tax breaks with localities.
We do not invest in properties we don’t want to own for at least 10 years, and do not outsource our property management. We develop long-term relationships with our residents, tenants, and surrounding communities and target rents that are affordable to residents earning 60-140% of the local area median income. We also cap rent increases for residents of 5+ years.
Grubb Properties pursues essential housing through our Link Apartments® developments, a strategy that we have perfected over the last decade. This work, along with our deep expertise in creative methods, is why we are best positioned to take advantage of the current moment. Learn more about essential housing.Learn More on Essential Housing
