Today the Fund owns ~11,000+ homes in 30+ metros, expanding rapidly. Learn more about SFR3.

Founded in 2017, SFR3 has quickly become one of the largest owners of single family homes in the country. This has been done by combining great people and great technology. SFR3 is much more like a tech company than most private equity groups in the space. This can be seen in everything from the people we hire, to the speed at which we move, to our mindset on testing and constant improvement.

Our platform builds $1B in affordable single-family homes annually – come help us double that.
