DALLAS, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. (“NXRT” or the “Company”) (NYSE: NXRT) announced today the closing of the sale of Silverbrook in Dallas, TX, a 642-unit property built in 1982. The Company acquired the property for $30.4 million on January 31, 2014, and completed an extensive repositioning and value-add initiative, improving the common area amenities and a significant portion of the unit interiors. As of September 22, 2023, the property was leased at 93.76% with a weighted average effective monthly rent of approximately $1,096. Net proceeds from the sale were approximately $19.5M, delivering a trailing nominal cap rate of 4.55%, a 34.0% levered internal rate of return and a 6.14x equity multiple, each of which well exceeded expectations. Management used the net proceeds from the sale to make a $16 million paydown on the Company’s corporate credit facility on September 25, 2023, continuing our strategic de-leveraging and balance sheet improvement initiatives. This paydown reduced the drawn balance on the facility to $41 million, an 88% reduction from September 30, 2022.
Additionally, the Company is still on track to sell Old Farm in Houston, TX, with an expected closing in early Q4 2023.
With the completion of these sales, the Company remains committed to paying off the outstanding balance on the corporate credit facility in early Q4.
“NXRT is excited about the closing of Silverbrook and continues executing on our strategic objectives to sell out of our positions in the Houston market, Timber Creek and Radbourne in Charlotte and pay off our most expensive debt capital. NXRT is committed to unlocking liquidity the Company can use to repurchase shares and/or pay off higher property-level debt that will be accretive to future growth.,” said Matt McGraner, Chief Investment Officer.
