Transaction Structure

Stabilized assets only. 100% fee simple (no leasehold interests). No joint ventures, development, partial interest, or loan participations. We generally acquire on an all-cash basis but do secure property level financing post-closing. In some instances, the assumption of in-place debt at closing is acceptable.
