Waterton Making Move Into Single Family Rental Market

Waterton Partners will expand its investment strategy by investing in single family rental (SFR) homes across Southeastern and Southwestern United States markets.

The firm will partner with Second Avenue Group, an established operator with a unified, end-to-end asset management platform, to strategically deploy capital into single family rental assets through acquisitions and development. 

Waterton will continue its 25+ year history of serving the demand for rental housing by focusing on meeting the changing needs and lifestyle preferences of renter-household structures that favor single family rental housing.

“We have spent the majority of the past 25 years building a portfolio of multifamily assets by identifying needs and maximizing efficiencies in the value add space,” said David Schwartz, chief executive officer and chairman at Waterton. “As demand continues to outstrip supply of rental housing in certain markets, we identified an emerging need for single family rental housing that suits the preferences of a shifting demographic and a need for responsible stakeholders to fill a void left by absentee landlords.”
