Competing for Apartments in Denver’s Hot Market: Tough, But Doable

A hot apartment market, Denver’s also a competitive one when it comes to finding good investment properties. Competitive, but still quite doable, Oak Coast Properties co-founder and managing partner Phillip Nahas tells us.

Market dynamics, such as changing demographics and future developments in the area, are critical factors in determining which asset types and strategies to employ. Trends in the debt market and interest rate fluctuations also affect the asset’s cash flows and returns, he says.

“Even in booming markets, it’s safer to make conservative assumptions in underwriting and consider above risk factors before going in,” Phillip says. “Also, identifying and working with operating partners with expertise in the local market will greatly enhance the effectiveness of a renovation program and an operational focus on an asset’s advantages and weaknesses.”
