Fund 7 is comprised of a mix of both storage facilities and manufactured housing communities, and controls more than 7,500 units across 19 assets in seven states. The Fund is currently making monthly distributions to its members and expects distributions to continue for the foreseeable future though distributions are not guaranteed.
The goal for the Fund is to assemble a diversified portfolio of cash-flowing properties that gives investors the financial benefits of asset ownership, but without the headaches of day-to-day management and resolving tenant issues. The objective is to provide an excellent return on investment for investors while at the same time providing customers with a quality experience offered at an affordable rate.
"The growth of Fund 7 is a testament to the quality and discipline of our team. While we are making great progress towards the stated objectives, there is still work to be done. We are committed to building strong partnerships with our investors and assets alike as we continue to grow this fund to its goal of $150 million."
