Role Overview:

We are looking for a Acquisitions Analyst to join a collaborative and strategic team that is responsible for Homebound’s new property acquisitions. The primary responsibilities of this position are to underwrite SFH deals and coordinate all due diligence activities in both new and existing markets.

  • Work cross-functionally with investment strategy, procurement, architecture & design, growth to ensure alignment on deal financials

  • Conduct high-level research on various aspects of potential investments (e.g., taxes, insurance, HOA fees, school districts and average household income) to inform the investment thesis on individual deals

What We’re Looking For:

  • 2-4 years of single-family residential acquisitions experience for a large home builder or real estate institution

  • Preference for candidates in Texas or Colorado, but open to individuals willing to travel to Homebound markets 2-3x yearly for site visits and deal research

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills and meticulous attention to detail

  • Ability to collaborate with cross-functional internal and external stakeholders is a must

  • Self-motivated, rapid learner that demonstrates logical and systematic thinking skills

  • Strong listening skills with ability to collect and verify detailed information

  • Be comfortable learning new software and systems

  • Thrive in working with ambiguity as we are constantly launching new markets & products and being able to synthesize multiple data sets/inputs towards a recommendation

  • BA in Finance or related field

We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you’re excited about this role, but do not meet 100% of the qualifications listed above, we encourage you to apply.
