Many operators specialize in a specific asset class, some operators specialize in a given geographic market, but invest across different asset classes. When you focus on one geographic area, it’s easier to build out a network of brokers and other contacts that consistently funnel you legitimate off-market deals where you can make real money. Rob Anderson, President at BV Capital in Dallas, invests in Texas. BV has done mostly multifamily where they’ve gotten very high returns for investors and is currently focusing on ground up development as the cap rates and returns on existing properties have fallen in more recent years. BV also does sale leaseback industrial deals and student housing projects.
