Alexandria and Woodbridge, Va.Transwestern recently facilitated the disposition of a two-property multifamily portfolio in Northern Virginia.

“These properties present an excellent value-add opportunity for Insight and RSE. These buildings are solidly constructed and well-positioned for a substantial increase in rental revenue through in-unit renovations and exterior cosmetic enhancements,” said Sigmon in a statement.

Insight Property Group and RSE Capital announced their partnership through the real estate crowdfunding platform Fundrise in August. This purchase is part of the joint venture’s plan to invest $200 million annually in Washington, D.C., real estate, primarily by acquiring value-add properties for repositioning.
