Cypress Real Estate Advisors acquired Lakeshore Pearl Apartments. ARA Newmark represented the seller in the transaction.

Inland Private Capital Corp., through its subsidiary that serves as asset manager, facilitated the sale of Lakeshore Pearl Apartments in Austin, Texas, on behalf of its 1031 investment programs. The property was 91 percent occupied at the time of the transaction. Pat Jones of ARA Newmark represented the seller in the deal.

Cypress Real Estate Advisors, the developer of Lakeshore Pearl, acquired the asset for an undisclosed price, but Inland announced the sale resulted in a total return to investors of 133 percent.
