December 01, 2016
Invitation Homes, a single-family home rental company founded by Blackstone in 2012, has confidentially filed for an IPO that could raise $1.5 billion, according to reports. Deutsche Bank and J.P. Morgan are said to be helping lead the offering, which could come in January and value the company at $7.5 billion.
Based in Dallas, Invitation Homes boasts a portfolio of over 50,000 homes across 14 US markets. Blackstone is believed to have spent some $10 billion on acquiring the properties, many of which were purchased at a discount in the direct aftermath of the housing crash.
