TRANSWESTERN SELLS 1,600 UNITS VALUED AT $85 MILLION IN DALLAS-FORT WORTH AREA
Transactions Underscore Demand for Diverse Economy and Robust Apartment Market

​Dallas – Transwestern’s Dallas-based Multifamily Investment Services Group has closed transactions on 1,600 units valued at $85 million in North Texas. Transwestern Principal Taylor Snoddy and Vice Presidents Philip Wiegand and James Roberts represented the sellers and also sourced the buyers on the transactions, all of which closed in the last weeks of the year.

“These transactions represented a wide range of local, national and international buyers, with demand driven by Dallas-Fort Worth’s strong job growth and rent increases,” said Snoddy. “We received strong investor interest despite the uncertainty from the election and the spike in interest rates.”

The following are details on each transaction:
· Dallas’ North Park Terrace, a 310-unit community at 8662 Park Lane, and Pecan Tree, a 173-unit community at 3001 Kendale Drive, were both acquired by a New York-based investment group for an undisclosed amount.
