Investors Still Like the Look of Multifamily Fountains at Stone Crest, a 400-unit property in Westmont, IL, one of several properties that Redwood unloaded in the first quarter.

CHICAGO—Redwood Capital Group, LLC, a Chicago-based multifamily investment firm, closed eight multifamily investment transactions during the first quarter of 2016 with a total value of more than $404 million. The transactions include both acquisitions and dispositions, and company officials say all this activity shows there is opportunity for both buyers and sellers of value-add multifamily properties.

“We are tactically taking advantage of certain circumstances when we sell assets,” Redwood partner Dave Carlson tells GlobeSt.com. For one thing, “there is a lot of interest in value-add properties,” the sector Redwood focuses on, and in some markets the company has been able to secure healthy premiums which justify selling. But there is also a lot of potential in buying other, quite similar properties, most of which were built in the 1980s and 1990s.
