DALLAS, Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- VineBrook Homes Trust, Inc. ("VineBrook") announced the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of 951 single family rental homes in September. The portfolio expands VineBrook's existing footprint in Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Indianapolis, IN; Kansas City, MO; Memphis, TN; and Saint Louis, MO; while simultaneously launching expansion into markets including Omaha, NE; Pittsburgh, PA; Louisville, KY; Little Rock, AR; and Jackson, MS. The homes were purchased from a respected and unaffiliated third party owner and operator focused on the workforce segment of single family rental homes.
"We are excited to complete this transaction which increases our scale and density in key markets and also facilitates expansion into new markets where we see compelling opportunity and value. Single family rental assets continue to demonstrate strong fundamentals and the marketplace presents consolidation opportunities for well capitalized and disciplined operators. Our structure and platform position us well to continue growing via single property and portfolio transactions," said Dana Sprong, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of VineBrook Homes, LLC.
The Acquisition is a continuation of VineBrook's strategy of aggregating, re-positioning and operating quality single family rental assets in secondary and tertiary markets that offer high current yields and NOI growth at acquisition prices representing strong discounts to replacement cost. VineBrook has an 11-year track record of successfully executing this strategy.
"Given the significant overlap in these assets' markets, locations, vintage and resident base as VineBrook's portfolio, we are excited to transition management responsibilities as we on-board these homes and welcome our new residents," said Ryan McGarry, Managing Partner & COO of VineBrook Homes, LLC. "VineBrook Homes' operating infrastructure comprised of a strong and growing team of nearly 200 property management and real estate professionals, robust and well-defined workflows, and highly transparent technological platform utilizing automation and real-time visibility, provides great confidence in our ability to efficiently manage workforce assets at scale to produce superior NOI margins."
