IREI Article

Walton Global, a global real estate investment and land asset management company, has announced the continuation of their DST growth strategy in 2024, with their newest land product being a property outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. Walton anticipates the launch of 5-7 similar programs in 2024.

Launched in March of 2023, Walton’s strategy for its DST offerings focuses on all-equity growth opportunities targeting potentially higher investor returns than traditional DSTs, along with hold periods that are not artificially lengthened due to repayment restrictions applicable to most traditionally financed alternatives. This strategy creates new opportunities for financial advisors to further diversify their clients’ DST portfolios, including an aspect of “growth.”

“2023 was a year of educating the marketplace on DST growth products, and in 2024, it is time to supply the demand,” said Todd Woodhead, SVP of Capital Markets at Walton Global. “There has been an appetite for an all-growth strategy as a diversification tool in the DST market, and we’re excited to provide a solution to our partners and their clients with our growing pipeline of assets.”

Walton Global successfully raised capital for two DST offerings in 2023, which included the closing of its first retail DST called Georgia Growth 1 DST, a land-based offering consisting of 103 acres of residential land already approved for the development of 206 single-family homes. The investment property was strategically situated near a strong builder presence to meet the housing demand for the region.

Typically, an investment in a DST involves transferring proceeds from the sale of an investment property to another developed investment property, such as commercial buildings or multifamily units, that provide the potential for some income but minimal growth. Walton is leveraging its decades of experience in land acquisition and its strategic partnerships with the top U.S. homebuilders to meet the growing demand of DST investors by acquiring small infill land assets structured as all-equity, with a focus on growth for the investor. Walton has transacted with more than half of the top 20 home builders in the U.S. and continues to grow its relationships. These strong relationships with top national and regional homebuilders allow them to strive to select the right land buyer to provide the potential for optimal returns for investors.
