Emet makes control investments in distressed debt secured by rental housing assets that qualify for municipal revenue bond financing. The real estate assets are typically within the subsectors of affordable housing, student housing, and senior housing, and exhibit asset and financial distress.
Our affordable housing target is mainly for families whose incomes do not exceed 80% of median income within a metropolitan area. The vast majority of multifamily housing qualifies by virtue of the naturally occurring tenant base as depicted.
