TODAY’S DEALS: Home Properties Completes Major D.C. Disposition

Home Properties sells a 864-unit asset outside of D.C.; and Dougherty Mortgage closes a 35-year refinance loan for a Minnesota Section 8 property.

Montgomery Village, Md.—Home Properties announced a $110 million disposition on Friday afternoon. The apartment REIT closed the sale of Cider Mill, an 864-unit community in Montgomery Village, Md., earlier in the week on  Wednesday, February 26. Home Properties has held the asset since September 2002.

The sale, which was valued at roughly $127,000 per unit, netted $47.5 million in proceeds (after closing costs and $58.5 million in secured debt payment). The weighted average historical cap rate on the sale is 6.9 percent after the application of a 2.7 management fee and before capital expenditures.

“The sale of Cider Mills is consistent with our strategy to lighten our Washington, D.C., geographic concentration,” says Edward Pettinella, president and CEO of Home Properties.

Pettinella says that the REIT still has 28 percent of their units in the D.C. region, and plans to maintain roughly that portion of units moving forward. He added that the sale generated a higher cap rate than average for 2013 dispositions, and attributed that fact to substantial property upgrades and its location in the weakest submarket of the firm’s D.C. regions.
