Oak Brook, Ill. – Inland Residential Properties Trust, Inc. (“Inland Residential” or “the REIT”), a non-listed real estate investment trust sponsored by Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation, has completed the sale of The Retreat at Market Square, a 206-unit multifamily community located in Frederick, Maryland, a suburb of Baltimore, for $47 million.
The Retreat at Market Square was acquired in September 2015 for a purchase price of $45.75 million and was sold on March 29, 2019 at a sales price of $47 million, representing an increase of 2.73 percent over the original acquisition price. At the time of sale, the property was 97.08 percent leased.
The Retreat at Market Square is the second of the REIT’s three assets to be sold as part of a liquidity event, approved by Inland Residential stockholders on December 18, 2018, providing for the sale of all assets of the REIT and the distribution of the net proceeds to stockholders. The first property sold, Commons at Town Center, an 85-unit multifamily property located in Vernon Hills, Illinois, was acquired in May 2017 for a purchase price of $23 million and was sold on December 20, 2018 at a sales price of $24.6 million, representing an increase of 6.3 percent over the original acquisition price. The third property, The Verandas at Mitylene in Montgomery, Alabama, is currently under contract to be sold. Sale of The Verandas at Mitylene is subject to various conditions being satisfied, including approval by the lender permitting the buyer to assume the existing mortgage loan secured by the property.
As further described in an 8-K filing with the SEC made on April 4, 2019, Inland Residential declared its second liquidating distribution of $8.59 per share payable from the net proceeds from the sale of The Retreat at Market Square, which will be paid on or about April 10, 2019 to stockholders of record as of April 2, 2019.
“We are pleased that the sale of The Retreat at Market Square marks the second property in the REIT’s portfolio that was sold at a sales price greater than the purchase price at which it was acquired. We believe this transaction underscores our success and continued progress as we move toward the sale of our third and final property to complete the execution of our liquidity plan,” said Mitchell Sabshon, president and CEO of Inland Residential.
