Sarwa Investment invests in a broad range of multifamily and residential properties, seeking an optimal risk-adjusted return. We focus on assets valued under $100M, where we believe property ownership is fragmented and market inefficiencies exist. We invest in markets where we have in-depth local knowledge.
