Recognizing long term shifts in consumer demands from renters as well as structural issues in the “for sale” home market, Mandrake identified great potential in the single-family rental sector. Mandrake has focused its efforts on the delivery of communities specifically designed and purpose built for rent — the build-to-rent (“BTR”) space. Mandrake commenced its first BTR development in 2017 and continues to actively develop BTR communities across three styles — cottages, townhouses, and traditional detached homes — tailored to the targeted end user of the project. Mandrake controls over 5,000 lots and currently has communities in production or slated for near term construction commencement in high growth markets throughout the Mid-Atlantic and the Sun Belt.
