New York, NY — Lument’s affordable housing real estate investment sales group recently represented the seller in the sale of a portfolio of low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) properties in Houston, Texas. The portfolio consists of six multifamily communities with 998 units and three single family communities with 220 units for a total of 1,218 units. Chris Bergmann, managing director, led the sale for Lument.
“We were pleased to represent the seller in the sale of this LIHTC portfolio, as this was an ideal opportunity for a large institutional sponsor looking for volume in Texas,” said Bergmann. “The well-constructed and fastidiously maintained LIHTC properties have significant upside, and the existing debt is assumable and has favorable terms.”
The sponsor intends to take the properties through the LIHTC rehabilitation process and extend the affordability of the communities. The oldest of the communities was originally constructed in 1996 and the most recent was built in 2008.
