Following the acquisition of Breckinridge in Louisville (Kentucky) last December, Varia US Properties AG finished the reinvestment of the proceeds from the sale of the Cardinal portfolio and started to deploy the proceeds of the capital increase from December 2020. On January 27, the Company acquired a three properties portfolio in Indianapolis (Indiana) for USD 87 million. This further strengthens Varia’s presence in Indianapolis after the acquisition of the Harrisson Point apartments last October and bring the number of units held in this market close to 1,200. The expected cash-on-cash return of the portfolio is deemed to be conservatively above 10% on a 10 year holding period.
“The US multifamily sector still offers very favorable underwriting conditions. We plan to further benefit from the currently attractive growing suburban markets in the US and from the very competing lending terms,” said Patrick Richard, Executive Member of the Board of Directors of Varia.
