The portfolio is located across three geographic locations within the burgeoning Southwest Sunbelt region, Houston, TX, Tulsa, OK and Oklahoma City, OK.
"MLG's purchase of the portfolio represents an exciting opportunity to acquire 10 assets of 'class B' multi-family at an attractive basis in locations that are in three fast-growing metropolitan regions of the Southwest with continued population growth, low unemployment, a strong corporate presence and high rankings for livability," said Ryan Mueller, Vice President of Acquisitions at MLG Capital.
Timing for the purchase is ideal as the U.S. occupancy rate for apartments is ±96 %, which is the highest occupancy rate recorded since 2001. Since 2000, the US has averaged 1.25M new households created, further suggesting that demand is continuing to exceed supply.
Market occupancy in Houston is ±93%, Oklahoma City is ±94% and Tulsa is ±94%.
