extraordinary potential for growth and financial performance. Their endorsement
of Value Place sends a strong message about the potential for Short-Term
Residential Property development and is further validation of the company’s highly

News of the private equity investment came as Value Place
celebrated the opening of its 181st unit, a property located in Odessa, TX. New locations in College Station, TX,
Dickinson, ND and Manassas, VA will open later this year. Value Place’s financial
