multifamily & student housing

acquisition  summary


Gold Watch Investment Group arranges debt and equity for multifamily/student housing acquisition and construction.  Our Clients are some of the largest developers in the country. 


Our financial resources are a mix of investment banks, insurance companies, REIT’s and private equity groups. As a result of these relationships we are often made aware of their objectives to acquire properties that meet specific acquisition criteria.  Sometimes CORE assets that can deliver cash flow are being sought.  More often than not, our Investors are seeking a value add opportunity that has significant upside.  This can be in the form of a change in management, repositioning, capital investment, lease up,  increase in demand due to a local occurrence, etc.


The following is the Acquisition Criteria identified by a number of our Investors, however, this is not the definitive criteria for all of our Investment Partners.  As a result, if you have an opportunity that you believe can bring value, certainly feel free to submit it and we can give you immediate feedback.


Lastly, please know that we are only seeking "off market" inventory.  This means it is not on LoopNet or any other online resource and it is not listed with a CRE Broker.  Our Investors are very tech savvy and have immediate awareness of available assets once they are officially listed.  Gold Watch Investment Group insists on bringing value to its Investors by offering them "off market" deals that have not been shopped to their competition.


Acquisition Criteria


The multifamily and student housing strategy primarily seeks Class A/B apartment complexes located in primary and larger secondary markets with strong population and job growth. We generally focus on the investment and/or development of garden style and urban in-fill multifamily housing containing a minimum of 200 units.   Student Housing projects need to be on growing campuses of 8,000+ students and ideally within walking distance to class.  Our equity partners can also offer a pre-sale arrangement where a purchase commitment is made prior to construction with ownership assumed upon lease-up. 


  • A/B class assets
  • 200-400 units per property or a portfolio purchase
  • Flexibility with regard to in-place financing
  • Value add, but stable occupancy (80-90%)
  • Nationwide with a focus on the south and both coasts
