About Us – The principals of Investar USA have been active developers/investors in real estate in both Canada and the U.S. for over 26 years.

In the recent past (2008 to 2013) management’s direction was focused on assembling and managing a portfolio of single-family home purchases based around a proprietary acquisition model and management system. Total equity deployed through this time was in excess of $40,000,000 and to date the portfolio is at 97% occupancy. This portfolio is enjoying the rewards of cash flow along with capital appreciation, in one of the strongest appreciating real estate markets in North America.
In reviewing the current real estate market, the Principals believe that the greatest real estate opportunity in today’s global market is in the multi-family asset class. The primary reasoning for this is; cash flow, appreciation, available leverage, principal pay down and tax benefits. They also believe that the strongest market for investing in multi-family is in the State of Texas. Management has commenced with acquiring assets in the Houston real estate market. They feel the entrepreneurial State, low personal and corporate tax structure are just a few reasons that Houston is the place to be in 2014. Houston is also the 4th largest City in the nation with a population increase of 26.1% over the past 13 years. This energy focused economy has created over 200,000 new jobs from 2010-2016 and is projected to add 423,500 new jobs between 2013-2016. Apartment demand is outpacing supply, rental vacancy rates are dropping and rental rates are about to rise.
In closing, investing in well selected multi-family apartments has long been a wealth building and retirement strategy. With the Value-Add Program, InvestarUSA can provide you the opportunity to invest with a proven asset and a proven management team in one of the strongest real estate markets in North America.
