“The most important one really is to look into the markets that you are investing in.”
“So the technology that we use, it does make the concrete more durable than going to traditional techniques for that. So the homes that they build should last longer, which means that they’re going to have less maintenance, and they’re going to be less vulnerable to storms, hurricanes, and so on.”
“if you have patience over time, it’s really gonna pay off.”
“the first and most important thing is the operator’s experience. So you have to work with experienced sponsors who have seen this before. If you have somebody who’s only done deals in 2021, it doesn’t exactly prepare you for a downturn, right?”
