HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA—Private-equity investors like the strong cash-on-cash that multifamily can provide as compared to hotels, retail and office properties, panelists at the IMN Multifamily Forum here told attendees Thursday.

Jerry Fink, managing partner of the Bascom Group LLC, said typically private equity has invested in hotels, retail and office properties, but this sector likes the strong cash-on-cash that multifamily can provide. “The cap rates are in the 3.5-point range, and the overall returns are lower than with commercial properties.”

Multifamily has always been a part of what UNC Management Co. does, said Rodgers Harshbarger, director of private investments for the firm. “Relative to other property types, the variance in terms of skill sets of operators is much wider in multifamily, and it’s getting more operationally intensive as time goes on. There are always going to be opportunities for above-average operators to take over; there’s lots more underperforming going on.”
