With more than 40 years of experience and relationships and an investment from institutional investors, RAM has the capital, expertise and the flexibility to structure the right deal for our partners, whether through pari-passu joint ventures or preferred equity structures. RAM was established to take advantage of the slow but steady recovery in the U.S. housing market and to aid homebuilders and developers in achieving their growth objectives in a capital constrained environment. With affiliated offices throughout the United States, RAM has the regional expertise and market insights to structure deals that make sense for their partners.
In the previous cycles, there were numerous capital providers to the land development and homebuilding community, many of which did not survive the downturn. During the recession of 2008 – 2011, several new investors entered the picture in order to feed off of the distress in the housing market. Now, as we have moved out of the distressed world and into a more opportunistic and value add market, some of those distress investors are taking a pause or have restricted their investment parameters. RAM’s executives have been in the housing industry for decades and as such take a long-term view of the sector. RAM is not fazed by the bumps along the road to the slow long-term housing recovery.
