DB Capital planned minor renovations at the property, including updating the exterior, common areas, and unit interiors that was consistent with other renovated assets in the area. Through these strategic renovations we saw an opportunity to raise rents over 13%. Our aggressive terms allowed us to win the deal at a time when the seller was looking for a surety of closer rather than just the highest price. We recently sold the property and secured a 29% IRR and a 1.68x equity multiple over a 3 year hold.
