Stratford Land, through its land funds, works on behalf of investors who want to invest in land. Working much like a mutual fund with different stocks, Stratford builds a portfolio of different properties in its funds. Over time, and with proper management, it seeks to deliver a targeted rate of return to its investor.
Stratford strategically acquires land in the path of growth in metro areas where the prospects for superior growth are spurred by consistent long-term job and population expansion. The fundamentals of long-term growth - including young populations, educated work forces and quality of life factors - have not changed and will not change for the foreseeable future.
Once the land is aquired, Stratford secures entitlements, including zoning, land use permits, overlay districts, public road funding and other approvals to enhance the value of the property. In its work, Stratford always seeks to secure entitlements in a way that leaves the community satisfied with the result. Its success in doing so has won the respect of many communities.
