Multifamily REIT BSR has sold a 2,600-unit portfolio of apartment communities in Texas and Arkansas to Dallas-based RREAF Holdings for an undisclosed sum. The 11-property portfolio is spread across three cities: Little Rock, Ark.; Houston, and Beaumont, Texas.

The deal comes seven months after BSR sold three workforce housing properties totaling 884 units in the East Texas city of Longview. Saxony Capital Management picked up one of the properties, while Monarch Investment & Management Group acquired the other two.
