Revitate Cherry Tree Multifamily Fund I Investment Strategies


Midwest Workforce Housing

Revitate Cherry Tree targets mismanaged workforce housing investment opportunities throughout the Midwest in growing secondary and tertiary markets that have consistent employment growth with positive net in-migration. A diminishing inventory backdrop, zero true competitive supply and increasing demand for affordable housing have made the asset class an attractive investment opportunity today. With the right operational focus and delivery of best-in-class community management services, reduced turnover rates and sustainable increases in revenues produce steady long-term cash flow and compelling tax-efficient returns for investors.


Sunbelt Value-Add Multifamily

Revitate Cherry Tree targets value-add multifamily assets with 100-200+ units in markets across the Sunbelt states that offer compelling growth profiles and attractive risk-adjusted returns. Revitate Cherry Tree is focused on well-located multifamily opportunities that require renovations to the interior units, common areas and amenities with the opportunity to create value through strategic asset repositioning. With the right market and executional strategy, these improvements provide for sustained rent increases.
