Capital Square Multifamily Portfolio Reports 94.8% Occupancy at End of First Quarter 2023
RICHMOND, Va. (June 20, 2023) – Capital Square, one of the nation’s leading sponsors of tax-advantaged real estate investments and an active developer of multifamily communities, reported multifamily operational results as of the close of the first quarter 2023.
Capital Square’s multifamily portfolio is comprised of 55 residential communities totaling nearly 14,000 units located primarily in the Southeastern United States, Texas and Tennessee. The portfolio’s occupancy increased by 1% to 94.8% at the close of the first quarter 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. The portfolio’s net operating income as a percentage of revenue totaled 64%, compared to a national average of 60.1%. Year-over-year revenue increased 10.7% versus average national growth of 9.7%.
The company’s multifamily portfolio increased from 44 properties totaling 11,130 units as of March 31, 2022 to 55 properties totaling 13,987 as of March 31, 2023. Average same store rent increased year-over-year from $1,484 to $1,560, an increase of approximately 5.1%.
“Capital Square’s multifamily portfolio is performing at an exceptionally high level. In spite of a global pandemic that shut major portions of the US economy, Capital Square has enjoyed exceptional occupancy and rent collection during and after the pandemic,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Housing is a necessity and there is still a shortage of quality housing in the markets in which Capital Square invests.”
In March, Capital Square announced the launch of Capital Square Living, a wholly owned subsidiary that will oversee all management functions of the company’s growing multifamily portfolio. Capital Square Living began the phased onboarding of communities in April and is in the process of internalizing management of the portfolio to include comprehensive property management services, for example, operations, maintenance, employee development and training, customer service, revenue management, marketing, budgeting, leasing and resident retention.
“Capital Square’s multifamily portfolio continued to perform exceptionally well during the first quarter of 2023, with high occupancy and rent growth that far exceeds the national average,” said Whit Huffman, co-chief executive officer. “The strength of our portfolio is a testament to our acquisition strategy in which we target highly amenitized properties in growing markets throughout the Southeastern United States.”
