Long-term strategy

Passco brought the asset full cycle after a nearly 10-year hold period. “We initially acquired the asset prior to the recession, successfully operated it as cash flow positive throughout the downturn and sold it, achieving returns that were within our initial projections,” said Passco COO Alan Clifton, in a prepared statement.

The sale of this asset was also timed to capitalize on strong investor interest in the region. During ownership, Passco brought the average occupancy of the multifamily asset up to approximately 95 percent and achieved steady net effective rent growth.
