    Staged Growth into Demand

    Our flexible business model, which utilizes numerous types of properties, coupled with underlying demographic trends enables us to grow into real demand and avoid taking on more inventory than we can fill. Our model works in existing housing stock and ground up development alike.

    Our long-term, community-driven approach is ideal for partners seeking long-term property appreciation without taking on the headaches of property management.

How to Work With Us

STEP 1
Introduce A Property

Already an Owner?

Existing property owners can apply to add a property they already own to the Common network.

Or Want to Buy?

We have identified a number of sites that are ideal for the Common model. We will work with a purchaser to facilitate an acquisition.

STEP 2
Agree On A Partnership Model

Management Agreement?

Common will sign a managment agreement for the entire building. This is great for partners who want a higher cash-on-cash yield and the opportunity to participate in the co-living model.

Or Master Lease?

Common will sign a master lease for the entire building. This is great for partners who want a stable, fixed return on their asset.
