This week’s episode is slight deviation from most. I’m giving a bit of a recap, announcing what’s next coming up on Tech Nest, and pointing out some trends to watch.
I’ve shared this idea with a few folks, so I thought it was time to vocalize it for y’all. Venture-backed property management will fuel more institutional and PE investment into sing-family rental portfolios. Creating a consistent and predictable structure for managing properties across markets will increase the attractiveness for this asset class and will further enable for large, professional firms to take market share in the residential space over the next coming years.
I’d love to hear your take on this idea, whether you agree or not. Get at me on Twitter @NateSmoyer.
