OUR EDGE

The right asset. The right region. The right time.

TIM has significant experience in the Single Family Residential asset class as one of the first large scale investors, dating back to the great recession when TIM purchased over 6,000 homes at deep discounts via multiple channels including auction, tax lien foreclosures and REO purchases.

In 2014, sensing a mature and overbought market, TIM shifted its strategy from buying via its traditional channels to bulk buying new and warrantied units at discounts from large US homebuilders.

In 2008, TIM launches  Build U.S Back, a vertically-integrated Property Management, Brokerage, Construction Management firm. BUSB has been operated in-house alongside the TIM management group and consists of seasoned property managers, accountants, brokers, and investment professionals with oversight by TIM executives.

In 2019 TIM launches its Build for Rent (BFR) business creating purpose-built fully amenitized communities of single family and attached townhome product. The BFR platform is in partnership with a large US homebuilder.

In February 2021, TIM and a multifamily owner and operator Electra America establish a fund, Transcendent Electra, focusing on newly built single-family rental homes and attached townhomes purchased directly from homebuilders throughout Sunbelt states Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

TIM currently has over $1.25B in AUM spread across nearly 5,700 units making it among the top 15 owners in the US by portfolio size.

Investors approach our asset class and strategy with a wide range of estate planning objectives that have benefited by the structure of our vehicles and the nature of the asset class. Our homes are owned fee simple by the investors via a single purpose entity and provide full tax and depreciation benefits to their owners; are easily divisible based on number of units or value.
