Apr 02, 2018
DALLAS, April 2, 2018 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announces the completion of 12 multifamily transactions in Texas totaling 3,699 units in the first two months of 2018. The cumulative sales price was $317 million.

These transactions were closed by IPA Texas executive director Will Balthrope and senior director Drew Kile, with assistance from team members Joey Tumminello in Dallas/Fort Worth, Jordan Featherston in Austin/San Antonio and Jennifer Campbell in Houston.

“The outlook for Texas multifamily investments this year is very positive, and the capital market remains robust for both sellers and buyers,” says Balthrope. “Debt and equity are readily available and long-term, risk-adjusted returns for multifamily assets in large markets such as Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and smaller, secondary markets throughout the state are outstanding.”

“We continue to see strong bidding from buyers on all types of assets from value-add to brand new construction,” adds Kile. “These first quarter transactions were closed with buyers from throughout the investment spectrum, ranging from major institutions to individual private buyers. Investors continue to be drawn to Texas by our state’s significant job and population growth.”
