Michaels Ramps Up Acquisitions Efforts

FILED TO: What's New

The Michaels Organization is currently seeking affordable and workforce housing communities to add to our portfolio in several markets, including Texas. A major part of Michaels’ growth over the past two decades has been the result of acquisitions, as we acquired individual communities and portfolios. We are especially interested in connecting with private owners who are looking to leave their real estate portfolios in good hands as their communities reach the end of their affordability periods or as owners seek to exit the business for other, more personal reasons.  Michaels has the ability to recapitalize and add value to existing assets, while committing to both long-term ownership and our mission of lifting the lives of our residents. Working with private owners directly whose properties are currently off-market is beneficial not only to Michaels but to the private owners.
