Higher Returns Than Other Real Estate Asset Classes
Apartments dominate other property classes in terms of risk-adjusted returns and this holds true regardless of holding period (three, five, seven, 10 or even 15 years), geographic region or metro market tier. This outperformance has also been consistent over a long period of time.

While active real estate investing has traditionally been the most common and poplar choice for investing, this form of investing generally requires considerable effort, including overseeing the purchase, understanding capital markets, performing inspections, finding tenants, and ongoing asset management/property management/maintenance. With a passive real estate investment strategy, our partners can enjoy returns without investing a significant amount of time and effort.
While investors should always perform their own due diligence before investing, each deal on the Ward & Company Real Estate platform has undergone extensive due-diligence by our IMP team & Strategic Industry Partners, including traveling to the property to verify financial & micro-market assumptions, building characteristics and condition, thus offering a truly passive investing experience for our partners.
