STERLING MULTIFAMILY TRUST
Sterling Multifamily Trust’s strategy is to acquire multifamily properties that will provide stable cash flow and reliable dividends to our investors.
Our thinking is long-term. We purchase with the intent of holding our properties, caring for them, and aggressively managing their performance. We know commercial real estate has its own intrinsic value, but if managed and maintained well, it will produce steady and reliable income.
The Trust looks for multifamily properties located primarily in the central corridor of the contiguous forty-eight (48) states. Today, over eighty-eight percent (88.4%) of our portfolio is strategically located in North Dakota and Minnesota where agriculture and oil are driving growth, stable property values, rising incomes and low unemployment.

Current and regular lease income can be used to pay dividends
Real estate can appreciate in value over time
Protection Against Inflation
Well-managed rents and expenses can shelter some aspects of asset income from long-term inflationary trends
Depreciation, step-ups in basis, and opportunities for deferral through IRS (1031/721) transactions may provide investors certain tax benefits
