“We are executing on all of our business initiatives to increase value for our stockholders,” said Ella Neyland, President of the Company. “As a result of buying multifamily communities in neighborhoods with job and population growth that exceeds the national average, we believe we can increase organic rents. We have also spent capital to upgrade the interiors of many of our apartment homes delivering a more attractive living space for our residents in exchange for an increase in rents. With a moderate income price point in rents, we are still below the rents charged for new luxury apartments which creates a value proposition for our residents.”
