Sylvan Road Capital takes a value investor approach to single-family rentals. The firm focuses on buying houses that are physically distressed, and adds economic value by extensively renovating those homes to neighborhood standards. By utilizing this approach, SRC is consistently able to minimize its total cost of investment as such homes usually sell at a steeper discount than their less distressed counterparts. Due to its lower entry cost and its fully renovated product, SRC targets both a higher cash-on-cash return as well as higher potential capital appreciation than other single-family rental investors.
SRC utilizes a proprietary technology platform specifically to underwrite, acquire and manage single-family rental properties at scale. The firm has successfully deployed capital to this sector, and currently manages assets for both institutional clients and high net worth individuals.
