“Build-to-rent is a very hot topic right now…it can be great, but if we do a build-to-rent we’re definitely going to sell it within 3-5 years. I think if you hold it 10, 15, 20 years there are going to be a lot of maintenance costs that are significantly higher than an apartment.”

“I think the pros of buying existing are that you have basically 60 days to close and you can own an asset.”
