Cadre Doubles Investor Money Through Multifamily Sales, Sees More Compelling Opportunities Ahead in Target Sectors and Geographies 1

Recent Sales Highlight Attractive Value Opportunity of Multifamily Investments for Investors Relative to Single Family Investments

NEW YORK--()--Cadre, the leading technology-driven real estate investment platform, today announced the successful sale of two multifamily assets in the areas of Baltimore, MD and Atlanta, GA. Cadre’s investments are expected to generate 20.7% and 29.2% net annualized returns to its investors, showcasing the compelling relative value multifamily investments provide, especially relative to single family pricing at record high pricing.2

With the latest sales, Cadre further enhances its industry-leading track record of delivering outsized returns to its clients, solidifying its position as a premier online real estate investing platform for individuals, and the only platform in which individuals are able to invest alongside institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Harvard University, and BlackRock. The Atlanta and Baltimore-based properties bring Cadre’s fully realized investments to 13, representing $1.19 billion of enterprise value. These sales highlight Cadre’s prudent underwriting approach and the benefit of ownership of private real estate as a hedge against macro volatility and inflation. As a result, Cadre investors may benefit from strong, stable returns in an uncertain and challenging macro environment.

Cadre’s recent sales further reinforce the promising value creation opportunities multifamily assets provide relative to single family housing. Specifically, recent and projected increases in single family mortgage rates have created greater challenges for investors to generate yield given the operational intensity of owning single family housing. In contrast, investors and owners in a defensive asset class such as multifamily continue to benefit from operations that scale more efficiently across units. Further, rising rates have made it more challenging for many prospective buyers to own single family homes and increased the number of renters in today’s market.3 The resulting demand for alternative housing options has driven up multifamily occupancy and investment value in several markets, especially those supported by attractive demographic and fundamental trends. As high-growth cities attract new residents and many buyers are priced out of single-family housing options, Cadre’s data science team projects multifamily will outpace other CRE asset classes in price appreciation over coming years.4

In aggregate, Cadre has delivered an average net IRR of approximately 28% to its investors through thirteen total deal exits, including two property sales announced in July.2 In total, the firm has returned more than $462 million in aggregate capital to investors to date.5 Cadre has now eclipsed more than $5 billion in total transaction volume and continues to advance its efforts to improve more individuals' financial futures by generating outsized returns from institutional-quality investments.

Cadre’s sale of Hudson Ridge, a 434-unit multifamily asset in Atlanta, GA is expected to achieve 29.2% net IRR (nearly triple its underwritten target) and 2.1x net multiple on invested capital for investors. Cadre recapitalized the property in 2019, and the firm was influenced by a number of factors in the area. At the time of purchase, Atlanta had seen over 20% job growth and double the national average for population growth since 2011.6 Cadre’s Hudson Ridge investment benefited from demand drivers at the submarket level as well, such as new entertainment and retail developments and limited multifamily supply. At the time of purchase, Cadre also calculated median home prices were 32% more expensive than renting a renovated unit at Hudson Ridge.7 In combination with Cadre’s business plan to renovate units and common areas, these tailwinds contributed to strong occupancy and rent growth. Ultimately, given the strength of offers for the asset, Cadre sold nearly five years ahead of the expected timing.

The sale of Versailles Apartments, a 210-unit multifamily asset in Towson, MD is anticipated to achieve 20.7% net IRR (nearly double its underwritten target) and 2.2x net multiple. Partnering with Ross Companies and GMF Capital, Cadre purchased the property in 2017. Cadre identified strong demand drivers in the greater Baltimore area, such as a high concentration of medical employees and proximity to higher education institutions.8 Cadre also projected Versailles Apartments would offer a 24% discount to homeownership in the area and a lower cost option for would-be buyers.9 The firm bought the asset with the intent to execute light value-add renovations to a portion of the units and provide an attractive return on cost. Given strong performance and cap rate compression, Cadre exited the asset three years ahead of the initially targeted sale timing.

“Our most recent property sales demonstrate Cadre’s ability to respond to market trends and deliver value for our investors, a feat we are especially proud of in light of increased volatility in the investing market. We are excited about the opportunities ahead of us and remain highly focused on continuing to level the investing playing field for individual investors and institutions alike,” said Ryan Williams, Cadre Founder, Executive Chairman, and Co-Chairman of Cadre’s Investment Committee. “Current challenges in the housing market provide yet another example as to why it is crucial for individuals to have access to the same quality real estate opportunities as institutions. We believe ownership of a more diversified portfolio of real estate assets is one of the greatest ways to empower more investors seeking to build generational wealth. These sales are two more significant steps in bringing this aspiration to reality.”
