Colorado Springs Portfolio Trades for $102M

Nexus Commercial Realty closed on the sale of seven apartment buildings that include a total of 1,178 B and C class multifamily units.

Nexus Commercial Realty has facilitated the $102.3 million sale of a seven-property portfolio in Colorado Springs, Colo. The multifamily buildings comprise a total of 1,178 B and C class units. Co-Founders & Principals Adam Riddle and Jason Koch represented the buyer, Slipstream Properties, in the transaction. The HFF team representing the borrower included Director Kristian Lichtenfels and Managing Director Josh Simon.

According to Yardi Matrix data, the seller is Resident Management Systems, a company that has been selling pieces of its portfolio over the last five years. This sale represents the last of the multifamily buildings that they owned and managed in the area. Strong employment growth in the Denver metropolitan area continues to maintain housing demand at high levels, especially for low- and medium-income residents.

“This portfolio is one of the largest multifamily sales of recent record for Colorado Springs (…). The sale of this portfolio took a long time as it had several moving parts to it,” said Riddle, in prepared remarks.
