PATHFINDER PARTNERS SELLS 32-UNIT TOWNHOME DEVELOPMENT IN PORTLAND, OREGON, FOR $5.8 MILLION
SAN DIEGO (May 24, 2016) – Marking the company’s second disposition in Portland, Oregon, San Diego-based Pathfinder Partners, LLC recently announced the $5.8 million sale of Springwater Court Townhomes – a 32-unit townhome community located at 5906 SE 122nd Street.
Pathfinder purchased the townhome community, constructed in 2009, from the real-estate owned (REO) department of the original construction lender in August 2013. Springwater Court was being operated as a rental community at the time of the acquisition, and Pathfinder continued to lease the homes throughout their ownership.
According to Lorne Polger, senior managing director of Pathfinder Partners, the property – which consists of 15 three-bedroom/three-bathroom and 17 four bedroom/two-bathroom 1,435 square foot detached townhomes – was newly constructed and had very good “bones,” but had been neglected during the lender’s foreclosure process. Pathfinder completed $100,000 in capital improvements including new monument signage, installation of a new irrigation system, several landscaping upgrades, exterior painting, installation of a new trash enclosure and implementation of new, cost-effective waste collection system.
“Portland has always been a great market for us and we look forward to expanding our presence here,” Polger said. “Rents in this region have been increasing at an average annual rate of 6% since 2013, and vacancy is at an all-time low. New housing has not kept pace with population growth, so the outlook here continues to be good.”
Pathfinder has been investing in Portland since 2010 and will continue to actively acquire new properties in the region.
The Portland-based Berkadia multifamily team – led by Joe Nydahl and Phil Oester – brokered the transaction.
