Private equity firm specializing in multifamily real estate also completes $44 million acquisition of Echo Ridge, a 168-unit apartment community in Denver
SAN DIEGO, May 5, 2021 – Pathfinder Partners (“Pathfinder”), a San Diego-based private equity firm specializing in multifamily real estate investments, today announced the quarterly closing of the Pathfinder Income Fund, L.P. (“Fund”), with more than $10 million in new commitments raising total Fund capital to more than $95 million. Pathfinder also announced the Fund’s $44 million acquisition of Echo Ridge, a 168-unit apartment community in Denver, Colorado.
A stabilized multifamily fund open to accredited investors, the Pathfinder Income Fund continues to seek acquisitions of new properties. The Fund has acquired seven properties with 900 units across five markets in the western U.S. Pathfinder has acquired or sold more than $1 billion of properties since its founding in 2006.
“Following one of our most successful quarterly closings to date, there continues to be a tremendous opportunity for accredited investors to take advantage of the ongoing housing supply/demand imbalance in the U.S. by adding additional real estate to their portfolios,” said Mitch Siegler, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Pathfinder. “With the availability of low-cost debt and favorable market demographics, the Pathfinder Income Fund provides a low-risk, income-generating vehicle for investing in multifamily properties and a legitimate alternative to the bond market – with superior upside.”
With an emphasis on downside protection, the Pathfinder Income Fund focuses on stabilized, income-producing, Class-B apartments, providing a margin of safety not found elsewhere. The Fund’s conservative approach to leverage, bias toward fixed-rate debt and emphasis on cash-flowing properties provide investors with an income-producing, tax friendly opportunity to widen their exposure to real estate.
The Fund’s newest acquisition, Echo Ridge, a 1999-vintage multifamily property, offers easy access to Boulder, Broomfield and Downtown Denver, is within 15 minutes of high-quality retail and entertainment options and offers tenants access to community spaces including a swimming pool, picnic areas, fitness center and clubhouse. Echo Ridge presents an immediate opportunity to increase cash flow and generate significant additional revenue with rents well below those of newer, nearby properties.
“We have always believed investing in multifamily properties was a resilient business, but after a year unlike any other, multifamily has proven to be even more resilient than we thought,” added Mr. Siegler. “The acquisition of Echo Ridge, similar to other properties in the Income Fund portfolio, illustrates a solid pipeline of attractive multifamily properties in cities with strong population, job and rent growth, and we expect this dynamic to continue for the foreseeable future.”
