HOUSTON, TX - Buchanan Capital Partners, an Austin, Texas performance-based commercial real estate investment firm, announced the recent off-market multifamily acquisition of Dakota at Bingle. Built in 2021, Dakota at Bingle is a 5-story midrise apartment community consisting of 258 units in the rapidly growing submarket of Spring Branch in Houston, TX.
"We are thrilled to add Dakota at Bingle to our portfolio," said Keith Buchanan, Founder of Buchanan Capital Partners. "This acquisition aligns with our strategy of investing in high-quality properties with an acquisition basis below replacement cost. We are focused on investing in submarkets with limited new supply pipelines and proximity to main employment corridors, and Spring Branch checks both of those boxes."
Currently, many buyers are sidelined due to aggressive acquisition strategies executed at the peak of the market. This was fueled by a historically low interest rate and cap rate environment and was compounded by highly leveraged capital structures. As a value investor who only receives compensation upon investor performance, BCP's business model forced them to be defensive over the last few years. BCP is now actively seeking to acquire stabilized assets at a significant discount to replacement cost. Their goal is to be the preferred buyer for sellers who want a smooth execution without re-trading or concern about the buyer's legacy portfolio condition.
Buchanan concluded, "Supported by BCP's performance-based structure, our value investing philosophy requires patience and has resulted in consistent returns. We have been in a long bull market, and track records will be challenged. We have never lost investor principal or made additional capital calls, and do not foresee this changing. To capitalize on this market opportunity, we are actively expanding our investor base for the first time and encourage interested investors to contact us."
Since the acquisition, Dakota at Bingle has been rebranded as Belle Spring Branch and is now managed by Valiant Residential, a top nationwide property management firm with over 35,000 units under management.
