Investment Philosophy

Real estate investment decisions require a deep understanding of the capital markets and the nuances of each property – including its particular local market dynamics and the behavior of its owners. With access to 20 years of data and rich asset-level analysis1, Amherst Capital offers investment insight that can help resolve the idiosyncratic and systemic risks of any particular property or loan.
