Bailard launches development-focused multi-family real estate funds


The Bailard Multifamily Fund, LP (“BMF”) will focus on building Class A Attainable units with premium amenities in underserved growth markets across the country. The BMF intends to capitalize on the lack of affordable rental housing for workers in the United States. Demographic and economic trends are resulting in significant unmet demand from middle earners for newer, quality rental units, which Bailard firmly believes creates a compelling opportunity for new development. The Fund will target “ABCD” markets, which have the following characteristics, among others:

  • affordability

  • Entrepreneur-friendly environment

  • academic degree

  • Demographic strength and excellent growth metrics

“The past two years have had a tremendous impact on housing markets across the country, particularly for renters,” said Preston Sargent, president and CEO of the Bailard Real Estate Fund and head of Bailard Real Estate. “Bailard’s team of investment professionals is launching this fund to provide access to a significant and actionable opportunity for investors and believes it will also provide societal benefits by creating more affordable housing opportunities for Americans who need them. Increasing access to quality housing at moderate prices is even more important as rising mortgage rates crowd out potential first-time homebuyers.”

Preston Sargent and Tess Gruenstein, who have over 40 years’ investment experience, will serve as co-portfolio managers of the Bailard Multifamily Fund. The BMF builds on the strong track record of multifamily development within the company’s existing flagship core fund. The BMF-targeted multi-family homes will include a number of desirable amenities, including a community pool, fitness center, clubhouse with business center, and a variety of energy-efficient features to improve tenant satisfaction and environmental benefits.

“Through the fundamental multi-family developments undertaken by the team to date, we have seen the returns this strategy can offer our investors, coupled with the strong demand for this type of development in the ‘ABCD’ markets across the country,” stated Tess Gruenstein, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Portfolio Management at Bailard. “This new fund leverages our existing expertise and gives our investors the opportunity to gain greater exposure to the asset class with a different risk profile than our core fund.”
