Capital Square 1031 Delivers 143.54% Return on Equity* to Investors in Richmond, Virginia-Based Multifamily DST

November 16, 2020

This is the 10th DST offering that the firm has taken full cycle since 2018

RICHMOND, Va. (Nov. 16, 2020) Capital Square 1031, a leading sponsor of Delaware statutory trust (DST) offerings for 1031 exchange and other accredited investors, announced the sale of Perry Place, a 70-unit, loft-style multifamily community in Richmond, Virginia. The property was owned by a group of DST investors who realized approximately 143.54% total return on equity, or an 8.99% annualized return, from their 1031 exchange investment.*

“Held for less than five years, the Perry Place DST provided investors with stable cash flow during the holding period and capital appreciation on sale,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer. “Capital Square acquires Class A and B multifamily properties for the 1031/DST program. The Class B properties are acquired with a value-add strategy to increase the rent and add value over the holding period by making strategic improvements. Capital Square completed the Perry Place improvements ahead of schedule and was able to exit early, with an approximately 143.54% total return on equity .”

Since 2018, the company has taken 10 DST offerings full cycle that have resulted in an average 12.51% annual return and an average 154.40% return on equity.

Located at 815 Perry St. within Richmond’s Manchester Arts District, Perry Place is situated on approximately 1.2 acres of land. The community has one-, two- and three-bedroom units with views of the James River and the downtown skyline. Property amenities include 24-hour controlled access, an outdoor swimming pool, a community roof deck area and a fitness center. Additional amenities include a community club room and 70 parking spaces.

Rogers added, “Most of the investors will continue their tax deferral under Section 1031 by reinvesting with Capital Square in either similar Class B multifamily properties with the value-add strategy or newly constructed, Class A multifamily properties that are the best communities in their submarket.”

Since the company was founded in 2012, Capital Square has acquired 117 real estate assets for over 2,400 investors seeking quality replacement properties that qualify for tax deferral under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code and other investors seeking stable cash flow and capital appreciation.
