Company Profile

Versity Invest, LLC is a real estate investment company located in Orange County, California.

Founded in 2022, the company specializes in student housing and multi-family projects across the US. With a portfolio valued at nearly $2.0 Billion across 22 states, Versity has over 3,000 investors and was ranked the 129th fastest-growing company in the U.S.

At Versity, we strive to provide clients with strong, risk-adjusted investment strategies, and to create inspiring living experiences for tenants through selective acquisitions and development, with a particular focus on high enrollment, housing supply-constrained locations, while utilizing enhanced social and environmentally responsible practices.

With 36 projects under management, Versity has raised several hundred million dollars in equity investments en route to becoming one of the largest syndicators of real estate in the country.

Diversified Portfolio

Versity believes that increased diversification has the potential to help with capital preservation and safety. With this in mind, Versity created an LLC that owns smaller interests in various Versity properties. Investors can buy shares of the LLC and have direct ownership benefits of a more diversified portfolio. The LLC is IRA eligible but not eligible for 1031 exchanges.

Core Assets

Versity seeks to acquire newer assets that we believe to be stabilized and well-located in strong markets. For these properties, Versity will typically employ a more conservative buy-and-hold strategy where the property is held for a five- or six-year period. These assets are 1031 and IRA eligible.

Renovation, Value-Add

Often, Versity will come across older properties we believe to have a fantastic location with an excellent track record of high occupancy but may not be in the best or the most competitive condition. Our goal for these assets is to devise a strategy to grow rents and increase property value by enhancing the appeal of the property through strategic upgrades, renovations, and amenity improvements. These opportunities are typically 1031 and IRA eligible.

Heavy Value-Add

Versity seeks to create additional value by leveraging our proven track record and expertise to identify market opportunities that require heavy capital improvements to drive returns for investors. Our experienced team continually searches for cost savings to reduce expenses without sacrificing quality.
