Newmark announces the sale of Waterford Park, a 224-unit value-add multifamily property in Northeast San Antonio, Texas. Built in 2008, the property was 96% occupied at the time of sale.
Newmark Managing Director Matt Michelson represented the seller, Kansas-based developer and investor Cohen-Esrey, in the sale to buyer, San Antonio-headquartered REEP Equity. This is the second time Newmark has handled the sale of the asset since 2017.
“Waterford Park drew competitive investor interest, as we continue to see capital flow into the San Antonio multifamily market,” said Michelson. “Given the property’s compelling value-add opportunity and limited multifamily supply in the immediate submarket, this asset is uniquely positioned to capture superior returns going forward.”
“Waterford Park is our 15th acquisition and reflects our continued success investing in the San Antonio MSA. We established a multifamily presence in this market almost 10 years ago,” said Co-Founder Arleen Garza, who leads acquisitions for REEP Equity. “Waterford Park is a premier asset with tremendous upside that fits our growth strategy to improve the quality of our investment portfolio and the communities we serve. San Antonio continues to exhibit proven fundamentals—a strong job market, population growth, and robust rent growth. This is our second investment in Converse and we have enjoyed a great relationship with the Converse Economic Development Corporation who leads the charge in this fast-growing suburb of San Antonio.”
Located at 9205 FM 78, Waterford Park is minutes away from major employment and entertainment. With a base of nearly 103,600 jobs within a five-mile radius (U.S Census Bureau), nearby major employers include the Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union headquarters, Southwest Airlines, Amazon, Rackspace and Methodist Hospital Northeast. Waterford Park is also proximate to an abundance of mixed-use, retail and entertainment destinations such as Forum at Olympia Parkway, Live Oak Town Center, Northwoods and Longhorn Quarry, as well as multiple golf courses, resorts and parks.
