TALAHASEE, Fla. (June 5, 2019) – Capital Square 1031, a leading real estate investment and management firm specializing in Delaware statutory trust (DST) offerings, announced today the sale of Ashford Club Apartments, a 103-unit multifamily community in Tallahassee, Florida. The property was owned by a group of DST investors who realized approximately 170 percent total return on equity, or an 11.74 percent annualized return, from their 1031 exchange investment.

The property was originally purchased for $8,000,000 in May 2013 and sold for $11,385,000.

“In less than one year, Capital Square has taken five DST offerings full-cycle for investors, resulting in an average annualized return rate of 14.51 percent and an average 155.92 percent total return on equity,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square 1031. “Most investors in the full-cycle DST programs have reinvested in a new Capital Square DST to continue their tax deferral under Section 1031. We are very pleased to have successfully executed our strategy to source, acquire and sell exceptional properties and provide investors with the many advantages of DST offerings during their acquisition, holding period, sale and reinvestment in a new DST property.”

Located at 2055 Thomasville Road in the affluent neighborhood of Betton Hills, the asset includes five three-story buildings with one- and two-bedroom units ranging in size from 750 to 1,000 square feet of space with private patios and balconies. Property amenities include a clubhouse equipped with a full kitchen, fireplace and wet bar, a swimming pool and spa with a sundeck and Wi-Fi, indoor climate-controlled racquetball court, tennis court, playground, dog park, resident business center and full fitness center.

Mike Waddell, president of Capital Square 1031, added, “The Capital Square team is gratified to see another full-cycle DST offering produce such strong results for our DST investors. This investment program included an extremely well-located multifamily property that performed admirably over its holding period, allowing Capital Square to maximize returns for investors.”

Since inception, Capital Square has acquired 82 properties for approximately 1,600 investors seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.
