Why are investors diversifying into multifamily? 


Glenwood Equity strategically sources multifamily properties that are designed to perform well in all market cycles.

Apartments are recession resistant because, at the end of the day, people need somewhere to live. When economic stressors are on the rise and people decide to downsize, it’s typically apartments they move into.

Rewarding Returns

Multifamily offers rewarding returns so you can grow your wealth without exposing yourself to the unnecessary volatility most investors experience with traditional investments and stock market risk. Glenwood Equity sources investment opportunities with projected returns of 90 to 100% over 5 to 6 years and annual cash-on-cash returns of 5 to 9% per year.

Tax Benefits

Investors can achieve significant tax benefits through accelerated depreciation and cost segregation, possible 1031 exchanges into new projects, and tax-free returns on their initial investment.

You don’t have to worry about your life savings or your family’s wealth riding the stock market roller coaster. 

Reclaim your time and freedom.

Create passive income streams to relieve your stress; you don’t have to settle for underperforming mutual funds or investments that barely beat inflation.
