Walton International Group is offering a new approach for leading homebuilders and developers to meet their land light strategies with the advantage of achieving financial flexibility.
In a statement, Walton Group said that in response to evolving investor needs, the group has further diversified its investment solutions with the innovative Builder Option Land Developer Fund (BOLD Fund).
The Walton Group takes a multi-phase approach towards investing in pre-development land, a process that begins with identifying the right land. The real estate investment firm said that it spends a minimum of two years researching and assessing a prospective area to identify parcels of land in the path of growth.
This due diligence process analyses environmental, geographic, political and economic factors to determine the development potential of a land project.
The rigorous land research process is followed by the syndication of the land through the Walton Group's distribution channels across North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
According to Walton International Group during the hold period, the company manages and administers the land, carries out pre-approved planning activities on behalf of landowners and keeps investors informed through regular project updates.
The firm’s strategic portfolio of land assets are well-positioned to meet the rising demand for land development in North America. The US, in particular, is seeing ever-growing housing needs as the economy, jobs and overall population continue to expand.
Furthermore, Walton’s BOLD Fund offers investors the opportunity to participate in the growing US home building market. The BOLD fund will acquire properties for near term residential development and sell them to homebuilders in phases with an adjustable takedown schedule and flexible financing options.
The Walton Group's real estate assets, which span across 23 major North American markets and comprise 179 master-planned communities with multiple uses and purposes, offer global investors unique land investment opportunities that capitalise on the stable economic growth in these regions.
