About Hayman Properties

Hayman Properties is an agile company which avoids assets typically targeted by REITS or other large institutional companies. Over the past 5 years Hayman Properties has strategically acquired a portfolio of over 15 properties in high growth markets primarily in the western United States. Every single commercial real estate property is carefully vetted and underwritten. We are thoughtful in our decision-making, responsible in financial planning with a focused investment strategy for ownership and disposition. Most of all, we seek to transform the “ordinary” into the “extraordinary” with Hayman’s unique signature style and design aesthetic.

3 Key Elements to Our Strategy

  1. Acquire Assets in High Growth Cities
    Hayman Properties is arbitraging the favorable and substantial CAP rate of return discrepancies between large cities (NY, Los Angeles, Chicago) and smaller faster growing cities, acquiring assets in cities where people want to live and are moving to such as:
      –  Denver, CO
      –  Austin, TX
      –  Dallas, TX
      –  Houston, TX
      –  Seattle, WA
      –  Salt Lake City, UT
      –  Portland, OR

    Generally, these markets have significant population growth, usually significantly higher than larger 1st tier cities and oftentimes attributable to:
      –  Better, healthier quality of life
      –  Business friendly government
      –  Solid job creation
      –  Lower cost of living

  2. Avoid Competing with REITS or Large Institutions
    These firms have large amounts of available equity and return expectations well below those of Hayman Properties. Translated, this means they are able to bid far higher, with less return expectations than we would be comfortable with. Typical asset acquisitions for Hayman Properties are between $10M - $40M, generally below the threshold REITS or large institutions.

  3. Vertical Integration – Hands-On Management
    Simply stated, it is rare to find outside 3rd party management that does a better job than our very own Advantage Property Management (APM). We manage properties with almost fanatical diligence which results in:
     –  Better cash flow
     –  Better long term appreciation
     –  Ability to deliver unmatched service and predictable, superior results

    Most importantly, APM (Advantage Property Management) has become a leader, by way of creativity and innovation in the repositioning and rehabilitation of target properties – one of the significant ways value is created.

    Above all else, We Invest in Every Property
    You will never find a Hayman Property where we do not have our money invested right alongside our investors or would be happy to own 100%. This is a testament to the confidence we have in our investment strategy as well as our commitment to all of our stakeholders.
