investment criteria

Home Star Properties LLC. specializes in locating, purchasing, and managing Self-Storage Facilities and Multi-Family Apartment Buildings. Our approach to these processes are conservative in nature so to greatly increase our probability in obtaining a higher rate of return on our investments. We also seek to capitalize on the "value added" component  we identify for each property, thus greatly increasing our returns after our average holding period of 5 years.Here is an overview of the criteria we use when considering adding a property to our ever growing Portfolio.
