NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — National Property REIT Corp. (“NPRC”) announced today the recent acquisitions of five separately financed multifamily properties for an aggregate asset purchase price of $250.4 million.
These acquisitions add 1,856 units to NPRC’s diversified multifamily portfolio, which now includes 44 separately financed properties totaling 17,946 units across 14 different states, primarily in Southeast and Midwest markets. NPRC’s multifamily portfolio has a total current market asset value in excess of $2.5 billion.
These acquisitions continue NPRC’s core strategy of investing in suburban workforce housing with value-add potential, a sector that, based on rent growth and occupancy, has outperformed large central city housing, office, retail, and multiple other real estate segments during the past year. NPRC’s recent property acquisitions are geographically diverse, with locations in Atlanta, Birmingham, Charleston, and Dallas, all Sunbelt cities exhibiting favorable employment growth and multifamily supply-demand dynamics.
“Despite market challenges from the ongoing pandemic, NPRC continues to deliver strong net operating income and rent collection performance in its portfolio of multifamily workforce apartment communities,” said Daniel Ackerman, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Acquisitions of NPRC. “Our recently completed acquisitions continue with our strategy of addressing this underserved important market segment, and we are pleased with our pipeline of additional potential acquisitions in other attractive markets.”
