DT Hood Properties focuses on a value added and entrepreneurial approach to the real estate business. Our objective is to take raw land or existing properties and add value to them through development, or remodeling and improved management. Once the land has been developed or the existing property has been rehabilitated we seek to stabilize and maintain optimal market rents through expert management that focuses on tenant satisfaction. We seek to develop outstanding tenant relationships by addressing all of their concerns in a professional and timely manner.

Target Market

For land development DT Hood Properties targets secondary markets to larger metropolitan areas that have a population of at least 150,000 citizens. For property rehabilitation projects DT Hood Properties targets areas of town that are in the process of revitalization. We seek opportunities where properties are achieving less than market rents.

What’s Next?

DT Hood Properties is looking to expand its holdings through the development or acquisition of 100+ unit multifamily properties. Our objective is to begin this process in the near future and are considering taking on additional investors or partnering through joint ventures.
