Beds, Beds & Beyond! 

Resilience, pricing, and long-term trends on point?

  • Get on Board! - Are living trends changing? Should investors go with the flow and diversify or stick to the status quo?
  • Location, location, operation! - Is success dependent on service, operational and prime urban locations these days?
  • Investor Appetite - Who's investing on what and where’s the value?
  • Bid & Ask Spread - Are current interest rates leaving the market risk-off or resilience knows no bounds?
