Our Philosophy

The Avanta Residential philosophy is built on the cornerstone of decades-tested experience and a solid commitment to developing neighborhoods that deliver results over the long term.  From concept to completion, these neighborhoods are designed to balance the long-term needs of the neighborhood itself, the community it sits within, the residents, and the investors.  Avanta Residential employs a deep pool of talented professionals to achieve this balance.  Architects, finance experts, construction managers, developers, asset managers, and qualified investment and property managers all work together to deliver great neighborhoods and outstanding results to our investors.

About Us

Setting the Standard for the Development of Single-Family Rentals

Avanta was created out of the deep experience of Hunt Companies Inc., a diversified, family-owned holding company that invest in operating businesses, real estate assets and infrastructure assets.  For more than 30 years, Hunt Companies has developed, built, owned, and operated high-quality single-family rental housing communities. Avanta Residential was formed by Hunt to specialize in the next wave of single-family rental housing.

In 2021, Invesco Real Estate made a strategic investment in Avanta to further scale Avanta’s operating platform. This partnership, along with Hunt’s extensive real estate background and more than $8.5 billion in completed developments, Avanta is positioned to set the standard for the industry by creating single-family rental neighborhoods.
