About Broadtree Residential:
Broadtree is a REIT designed to provide shareholders with predictable, tax-sheltered cash flow, and to generate attractive total returns via investment in a diversified portfolio of multifamily apartment communities.
Broadtree seeks residential property acquisitions via outright cash purchases and/or through UPREIT transactions. UPREIT transactions (where “UPREIT” stands for Umbrella Partnership REIT) provide a tax deferred exit strategy for owners of real estate who might otherwise recognize a significant taxable gain in a cash sale of a highly appreciated property with a low tax basis. These transactions enable the property owner to exchange owned real estate for an interest in a professionally managed portfolio that is diversified by geography and property type.
Broadtree, which is externally managed by Broadstone, remains open for investment by accredited investors only, with a minimum initial investment of $200,000, or $100,000 via financial advisors.
