Ballast Rock Group Announces 2022 Year-End Performance of its Sunbelt Real Estate Funds
Ballast Rock Group, the diversified investment management firm, today announced 2022 year-end performance of its two multifamily real estate funds.
The Sunbelt Multifamily Fund I, which was launched in 2019, began dispositions in early 2022 by selling four of the nine assets held by the fund. These sales generated realized gross internal rates of return of 85% (2.17x Multiple on Invested Capital, “MOIC”), 61% (3.0x MOIC), 50% (2.52x MOIC) and 35% (2.3x MOIC), respectively, on each asset, for combined gross proceeds of $60,450,000. The 593 apartment units involved were acquired at an average cost of $53,583 per unit and sold at an average cost of $101,939 per unit.
Ballast Rock anticipates exiting the remaining five assets in Fund I opportunistically over the next 12 to 18 months.
Sunbelt Multifamily Fund II, which launched in 2021, will close on its final asset this month, which will mark the completion of the acquisition stage for the $105,363,000 total asset fund. In 2022, the fund acquired 471 units across three assets for $56,970,000.
Current income generation in the portfolio is ahead of Ballast Rock’s pro-forma expectations.
“We are pleased that our performance in 2022 validated our thesis that we have the right experience to acquire, manage and oversee value-add projects across our portfolio of workforce multifamily real estate assets,” said Thomas Carroll, Chief Executive Officer of Ballast Rock Group. “This performance is a shared success, since all of our principals invest our own capital alongside our investors, aligning our interests, and delivering safe, clean, and affordable homes for residents in our communities.”
Ballast Rock Group focuses on the workforce housing market throughout the Southeast, creating tax-shielded, diversified real estate funds with a positive social impact. Ballast Rock differentiates itself with high performance, frequent communication, detailed reporting, and ready access to the management team.
Ballast Rock anticipates launching its Sunbelt Multifamily Fund III in Q1 2023.
