Tides Equities Buys Fort Worth Communities
Institutional Property Advisors arranged the two transactions.
Tides Equities has acquired two Fort Worth communities totaling 448 units. Both properties were previously owned by WRH Realty Services and received Fannie Mae financing in 2013, adding up to $7.9 million, according to Yardi Matrix data. The current owner will rebrand the garden-style communities as Tides on Avril and Tides on Westcreek, with plans to execute a capital improvement program to renovate both properties, for a total cost of $9.5 million.
Tides on Avril previously changed hands in 2007, when WRH bought the community from PWA Coalition of Dallas. Tides on Westcreek last traded in 2008 when MBS Cos. sold the property for $3.8 million, Yardi Matrix data indicates.
Institutional Property Advisors arranged the two current transactions.
