After doing various searches on this forum, I have noticed SF is a product that doesn't get discussed frequently on this forum. I have prior experience in a Capital Markets intern role at a small developer in the Multi-family space and have recently started working for a large publicly-traded home builder in a major East coast market within their land acquisitions group. It seems there is a certain "prestige" carried with working in CRE or MF vs. SF acquisitions.
- Other than the obvious economies of scale positioning that MF has, what are other reasons that SF is not talked about nearly as much as MF is?
- Nuances with key metrics/ratios/jargon aside, Is it relatively easy to switch over from a SF acquisitions role to an acquisitions role in CRE?
- What is the overall perception of a professional working for a publicly-traded home builder?
Would anyone who has either worked in both or switched over from SF to another product be able to chime in?
