Invitation Homes’ success is fueled by the growing demand for high-quality, single-family homes for lease. Many things contribute to an exceptional experience for our residents – the speed and effectiveness of our service, the quality of our portfolio through our ongoing commitment to maintaining our homes, the genuine care we provide in each interaction, and so much more.
Associates are the backbone of our company. Nothing happens without the day-to-day dedication of our invaluable associates. Whether they are a front-line brand ambassador who represents us each and every day with our residents, or a back-of-the-house support team member who ensures we continue to move forward, our associates are our greatest asset.
Being a good neighbor is critical in the communities where we do business. This includes volunteering in our local communities and contributing dollars to non-profit organizations doing good in our markets. It also involves the full economic impact of our business on the community, through home renovations completed by local vendors, real estate taxes, HOA fees and dues, and locally purchased goods and services.
We have a diverse portfolio of investors. With every decision and every action, we must continue to earn their trust in investing their hard-earned money in Invitation Homes. To address the growing interest of investors in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) efforts, we’ll continually evolve our corporate strategy in order to meet sustainability and social responsibility commitments.
We know we have room to grow, and we are committed to learning and improving our approach. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we launched a formal ESG materiality assessment to identify opportunities for Invitation Homes to make the biggest impact in the areas that our stakeholders care most about. In order to ensure consistent attention and focus on ESG matters, we have created a dedicated, cross-functional task force of associates. In addition, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors is responsible for monitoring, reviewing, and providing oversight with respect to the company’s ESG strategy, initiatives, and policies. This committee receives periodic updates from management regarding the company’s ESG activities and progress. We also believe in the value of feedback, and we hold ourselves accountable. To that end, we participate in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment for a third-party evaluation of our ESG performance, and we are the first US REIT ever to link the pricing of a revolving credit facility to our GRESB score.
Together, we’re building something truly amazing.
At Invitation Homes, we offer high-quality homes for lease in desirable neighborhoods across America. As the leader of a growing industry, we provide a flexible housing option to the increasing share of Americans who are opting not to buy a house.
Our homes are strategically located near good schools, jobs, and transportation corridors. Each of our homes is professionally managed by one of our experienced local property managers. Our team’s unmatched knowledge of residential property, combined with our financial stability and entrepreneurial vision, puts Invitation Homes at the forefront of today’s single-family rental market.
But we know owning houses is the easy part. Turning those houses into homes where individuals and families can thrive is why we’re in business. That’s why our mission is “Together with you, we make a house a home.”
