ArborCrowd Opens New $22.4 Million Commercial Real Estate Deal to Qualified Investors

ArborCrowd Enables Individual Investors to Co-Invest with Real Estate Sponsors on High Caliber Investment Properties

NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ArborCrowd, an online commercial real estate company, announced today a new real estate investment opportunity that is open to accredited investors. Known as the "Southern States Multifamily Portfolio" (the "Portfolio"), this latest offering features three multifamily properties in Alabama and Mississippi.

ArborCrowd has provided the public with exclusive multifamily investment properties in New York City. The company is now expanding its reach into new metro areas across the country in order to provide diversified investment opportunities to the public. Unlike many other crowdfunding marketplaces, ArborCrowd provides greater transparency about each investment opportunity. Investors have access to documents and deal specifics — including market reports, property details, financial projections and business plan timelines — necessary to make an informed decision. The entire investment process and access to all the resources are available online.

"ArborCrowd is a real estate company first and foremost, and was built because of our institutional experience — this means we know the right deal-makers and we know how to source the best investment properties," said Ivan Kaufman, Co-founder and CEO, ArborCrowd. "ArborCrowd breaks down the barriers to real estate investing. We do this by giving people the opportunity to co-invest with sponsors who have a significant amount of equity in the deal."

Southern States Multifamily Portfolio Highlights
The $24.4 million Southern States Multifamily Portfolio was acquired in November 2016 by Varden Capital Properties, LLC ("Sponsor" or "VCP") as a value-add repositioning. ArborCrowd investors have the opportunity to own a piece of a $2 million equity stake in the Portfolio with a targeted 17 percent to 20 percent Internal Rate of Return (IRR) and a targeted investment hold period of two to three years.

"ArborCrowd has established a unique investment model that has already generated cash distributions for our investors," said Adam Kaufman, Co-founder and Managing Director, ArborCrowd. "It starts with selecting the right sponsor, who has the savvy insights into properties that can yield attractive returns. The Southern States Portfolio fits this sweet spot and may attract investors who want a shorter investment period than a typical direct real estate investment."

VCP has extensive experience in commercial real estate with a focus on multifamily acquisitions in the southern and southeastern United States. The Sponsor currently owns 40 properties, has sold more than 42 properties, and has acquired 82 apartment assets valued at approximately $1 billion.

The Southern States Portfolio consists of 607 rental units across three properties located in Huntsville, AL and Robinsonville, MS. The properties in the Portfolio were acquired concurrently by the Sponsor. Combining these assets into a single portfolio may produce several key benefits for ArborCrowd Investors:

  • Market Diversity: Investing in multiple markets balances varying economic drivers for each property and reduces potential risk.
  • Low Cost Basis: By acquiring the properties together at an attractive cost basis, VCP is able to be competitive on rental rates while making the necessary improvements to increase occupancy and realize significant profit through the eventual sale of the Portfolio.
  • Short Hold Period: A simple business plan provides for a short projected hold period. Early cash distributions for investors are expected because of the potential to quickly reposition multiple assets.

Another key factor in successful commercial real estate investment is understanding the rental demand and opportunity.

Huntsville is the largest city within northern Alabama's metro area – an economy that outperforms Alabama as a whole, according the Nielson Company. From 2005 to 2015, employment in the metro area rose by 21,000 jobs — a 10.4 percent increase. The average asking rent in the Huntsville metro area reached $695 per unit in 2016, a 10 percent increase from 2012, according to commercial real estate research firm Reis.

Robinsonville is a short 30-minute drive from the diversified economy of Memphis, TN, making it an attractive rental opportunity. Legalization of dockside gaming in 1990 brought dramatic economic change for Robinsonville. The city's Tunica casinos and resorts employ about 5,500 people and generated revenue that exceeded $649 million in 2015. From 2000 to 2016, population within five miles of the property increased to nearly 63 percent and is attributed to industrial and residential development.1
