Sourcing Development Deals
Looking for new methods/resources for sourcing new development deals.
A little background: I work as an analyst on a small team for a family office that has around $1B AUM. Investment criteria is usually ground up MFR developments 100+ units in the Sun Belt and South Florida. What methods do developers usually employ for connecting their projects with providers of capital? I'm expected to source and underwrite a couple of deals per month, even though most of what we close on is stuff brought to us by ournetwork or GPs we have worked with previously.
Looking for advice beyond the usual online databases (CoStar, Loopnet, Crexi, etc) and larger brokers. We are flexible in that we usually do pref equity but sometimes come in as the senior lender.
