PHOENIX. AZ - Western Wealth Capital (WWC), a growth-oriented real estate investment company, is pleased to announce the completion of its sale of Anzio, a multi-family unit building in the company's Arizona portfolio.
WWC purchased the 240-unit multifamily building in August 2015 for $19.5 million (all figures $US). WWC has now sold the multi-family community for $25.7 million - a 32% increase to acquisition price. Net of capital investments on building improvements, WWC investors in Anzio received an annualized return of 33%.
Janet LePage, Chief Executive Officer of WWC, says the company's consistent performance is the result of both an adherence to a precise business strategy and Phoenix's strong economic fundamentals.
"We remain strongly bullish on Phoenix and the investment opportunities available. Our deal flow that meets our criteria remains very active," says LePage.
Year to date, WWC has made four accretive divestments and six acquisitions. WWC is currently in the purchase process for Marble Creek, a 244-unit apartment community located five miles from the I-17 corridor and the second largest employment hub in Phoenix's Southwest Valley.
WWC's investment strategy typically has a three-to-five year horizon. WWC divests either when it is accretive at the end of the time horizon, or we receive an offer that exceeds our business plan targets.
WWC has a disciplined six-stage strategy. We acquire undervalued multi-family rental properties; carefully allocate capital to accretive improvements; optimize operations to increase the asset's net cash flow and valuation; refinance to return equity to investors; and, when appropriate, divest.
Since its inception in 2011, WWC has acquired 31 multi-family unit buildings, representing 5,125 units, with a combined purchase-value of more than $375 million. Our current portfolio, net of divestments, includes 23 multi-family unit rental buildings (nearly 4,300 units) in the Greater Phoenix area. WWC is now the second largest multi-family owner in the Phoenix area by number of units.
