A New Approach To Rental Housing Investment in Spain
Greystar launched our vertically integrated platform in Spain to acquire and develop purpose-built student accommodation and rental housing. Since entering the European market in 2013, Greystar has built a significant high-quality rental housing portfolio by investing in student accommodation and purpose-built rental housing across the continent. In Europe, the team has grown to over 500 skilled professionals, leading the way in investment management, development, and property management of rental housing. The Greystar vertically integrated rental housing platform combines local market expertise with the power of a global investment, development, and property management platform.
Greystar entered Spain in 2018 with the purchase of Resa, the biggest student housing portfolio in Continental Europe, with more than 8,500 units and a wide national footprint that includes 34 assets in 20 cities. This acquisition has provided a platform for further intensive investment in both the student accommodation and multifamily business in the south of Europe. The Greystar European growth strategy continues to focus on targeting world-class cities that lack institutionalized purpose-built rental housing and student accommodations. By investing intelligently with a global capital allocation strategy, focus on managing and mitigating risk, and a dedicated local operating platform, Greystar aims to maximize investment returns for our investors.
