HQ Capital Real Estate’s Investment and Sales Activity Nearly $1 Billion in 2018
New York, NY / Bad Homburg, 9 April 2019. HQ Capital, a leading independent manager of alternative investments, announces $840 million of real estate activity in 2018. Over the past year, the firm invested in eight multifamily investments throughout the U.S. in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Texas, representing nearly 1,800 units with total project costs of $410 million.
“We experienced strong rental apartment demand, driven by healthy job gains last year,” said Justin Sorem, Vice President of Real Estate Asset Management at HQ Capital. “In the coming year, we expect to see this absorption continue, which will position our projects for further successful sales to apartment buyers.”
Beyond its investments, HQ Capital sold 11 residential and commercial properties valued at approximately $430 million and representing more than 2,300 apartment units and 360,000 square feet of commercial space throughout the U.S. The properties, which were sold to various institutional and private investors, were located in Growth markets primarily in the Southern and Western regions of the U.S.
“In 2018, we continued to successfully invest in and sell U.S. multifamily properties,” said Jeremy Katz, Co-Head of Real Estate at HQ Capital. “We are benefiting from a highly active sales market in which institutional investors seeking nonvolatile current returns are attracted to the core product we are delivering.”
In addition to its investment and sales activity, HQ Capital added a 68,000-square foot office building in Washington, D.C. to its third-party asset management portfolio.
The company expects to continue its current level of business activity in 2019.
