Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors (KAREA), made up of a team of real estate professionals who average over 16 years experience, invests directly in real estate assets, primarily in sectors that require specialized skills and market knowledge, exhibit historically recession-resistant cash flows, contain strong demographic growth and fragmented ownership. We pursue an opportunistic investment approach that seeks to identify "off-market" deals with motivated sellers with underperforming assets or assets that can be transformed through a value-add approach. With a focus on capital preservation and risk-adjusted return, we seek investments that generate immediate cash yields with significant additional growth potential.
We invest principally in off-campus student housing properties located within close proximity to large public university campuses. Our target acquisition size is generally $15 million to $80 million. We prefer to acquire property directly, but consider joint venture opportunities, particularly in niche sectors other than off-campus student housing with experienced operators who have established track records in their sectors.
