SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - Optimistic about the residential real estate market in the Western United States, Presidio Residential Capital has funded $64.3 million on 23 projects so far in 2013.
The private equity fund, which has provided more than $500 million in joint-venture equity and loans to residential homebuilders since 2000, has committed another $40 million to option entitlement deals.
"We see the next two to three years as a good, consistent time frame for the residential housing market," said Presidio Principal Don Faye, a 30-year veteran in the real estate finance industry. "We are looking for top developers in solid markets from the Rockies west, including Seattle, San Diego, Houston, Denver and Boise."
Presidio is funding high-quality local developers and builders in markets where the housing supply is tight and capital is relatively scarce.
"We have a single source of funding," Faye said. "Our money is in the bank. We simply have to approve a project and then we can fund it. If we say we're going to do it, we perform."
During the first half of this year, Presidio has funded six construction loans and is the process of providing equity on numerous projects in San Diego County and beyond.
"One of the key things in anything we do is to focus on the sponsorship of projects and their quality, regardless of where they may be located," Faye said. "We're funding quality projects with top-tier developers and builders."
