Viking Capital has acquired Villas at Sundance, a 252-unit community in New Braunfels, Texas, near San Antonio, for $37.5 million. NMS Property Services previously owned the property, according to Yardi Matrix data.

Black Oak Capital provided a $24.2 million acquisition loan for the value-add asset. The note carries a fixed 5.70 percent interest rate, bearing an amortizing period of 30 years with interest-only payments for 24 months.

The company earmarked $2.3 million for exterior upgrades, including refurbishments to the private yards, sidewalks, landscaping and parking lot, as well as pedestrian gates and HVAC systems.
