BSR REIT sells an 11 property multifamily portfolio

Communities in Texas and Arkansas included in transaction

Phoenix, December 21, 2020 - Colliers International’s Cooke Multifamily Team is pleased to announce the sale of the Texas / Arkansas 11-property multifamily portfolio (2,600 units) on behalf of BSR Real Estate Investment Trust, according to Cindy Cooke with Colliers International in Arizona.
 
RREAF Holdings, LLC, of Dallas, Texas, purchased Indian Hills, South Oak, Overbrook I-IV & V and Woodland Oaks communities in Little Rock, Arkansas. In addition, the buyer acquired Baystone, The Vanderbilt and Windsor Estates I & II in Greater Houston, Texas, as well as West End Lodge and The Pointe in Beaumont, Texas.
 
“Considered to be non-core assets located in Houston and Beaumont, Texas markets and Little Rock, Arkansas, the sale is part of the BSR portfolio enhancement growth strategy and capital recycling program,” says Cooke.

The Cooke Multifamily Team at Colliers International (Cindy Cooke, Brad Cooke, Chris Roach, Matt Roach, Teresa Lowery and Ron Cameron) represented BSR REIT in the sale.
 
The four Houston area properties total 1,106 apartment units. The three, high-quality, institutionally owned and well-maintained properties are all situated within Greater Houston. Windsor Estates I & II and Baystone are located in the southeast quadrant of the city, which is close to the Gulf of Mexico and home to NASA-Johnson Space Center. The Vanderbilt is situated near several major employment corridors and the Bush Intercontinental Airport.
 
The Pointe and West End Lodge are located in Beaumont, Texas, in the southeast portion of the state. The Beaumont-Port Arthur area is growing at a rapid pace, attracting trade and commerce businesses. Approximately 63,000 jobs with major employers are located within 10 miles of these two multifamily communities. The two properties feature 513 apartment units.
 
The five-property portfolio in Arkansas consists of 981 total apartment units that were 95 percent occupied at the time of sale. Stable occupancy, consistent rent growth and limited new construction of multifamily properties in the Little Rock metro area all contributed to the appeal of these assets. Overbrook I-IV & V and Indian Hills are situated within the affluent North Little Rock submarket. South Oaks is located near several major employment corridors in the city and within walking distance to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. Woodland Oaks is situated in Conway, AR, home to several universities and a growing business base.
