Ballard Built deploys a multi-channel strategy designed to minimize risk and volatility and provide healthy, above market returns during all seasons.
In times of growth you can expect that we will;
1. fund the purchase of undervalued assets with a strong exit plan and an opportunistic repositioning strategy, 2. build on infill lots with emphasis on setting the expected completed construction date to best fit within a market-cycle high, 3. develop land and communities—from subdividing lots to installing basic utilities.
Ballard Built is uniquely positioned to source, analyze, and fund opportunistic housing investments across some of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. Our on-the-ground relationships and straightforward approach opens doors for unique-profitable investment opportunities.
There is a severe shortage of quality housing, so getting into these cities requires leveraging many relationships that Ballard has already developed. The reality is that new entrants to these markets face significant disadvantages and potential delays.
