Rise48 Equity – one of the fastest growing multifamily investments groups in Phoenix – announced three transactions completed in the past 10 days, totaling $109,850,000. The transactions included two dispositions and one acquisition.
Rise48 Equity acquired c, a 76 unit multifamily apartment property located in Phoenix, Arizona, in August of 2019, at $6,900,000 / $90,789 per unit. They implemented their interior upgrade program and installed washers & dryers inside many of the units. Rise48 Equity sold this property at $15,550,000 / $204K per unit.
Rise48 CEO, Zach Haptonstall, said “We’re excited to have successfully executed our value-add business plan and complete our third full-cycle disposition of an asset since we started. This deal was a home run for our investors who trusted us with their hard-earned money, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We’re selling our fourth deal next week, and both of these recent dispositions drastically exceeded investor return projections in less than half of the projected time period. We’re looking for more opportunities to serve our growing investor base.”
Rise48 Equity also acquired Villa Serena Apartments, a 137 unit community located in Phoenix in August of 2019 as well, purchasing the community at $17,575,000 / $128.3K per unit.
