PHILADELPHIA--()--Resource Real Estate Opportunity REIT, Inc. (“Opportunity REIT”), a non-traded real estate investment trust sponsored by Resource Real Estate, Inc. (“Resource Real Estate” or “RRE”), today announced the successful sale of Cityside Crossing Apartments.

Opportunity REIT acquired Cityside Crossing, a 360-unit multifamily residential community located in Houston, Texas, in December 2012. The property benefited from a proven value-add strategy, professional management, and capital enhancements that helped transform Cityside Crossing into an attractive property that gained the interest of capable buyers. As a result, the sale of Cityside Crossing produced a cash profit of $10.7 million, and an average annual return of 28.4 percent.

Kevin Finkel, President and COO of the Opportunity REIT, notes, “The strong returns generated by the Opportunity REIT’s sale of Cityside Crossing is a direct result of RRE’s deft, professional management capabilities that significantly improved the financial performance of this asset. In addition, we acquired Cityside Crossing knowing that the new Palm Center Transit Center, located immediately adjacent to Cityside Crossing and the terminal station for the Metrorail’s new Southeast Line, would add significant value to the property.”
