Catalyst Multifamily Management, a subsidiary of MBP Capital, Inc., handles all property management responsibilities for MBP. Currently, MBP Capital, Inc. owns approximately 2,100 units in Dallas / Fort Worth and San Antonio, Texas. MBP Capital, Inc. recently created a $150M plus Multifamily Real Estate Fund called MBP Real Estate Fund I, LP. This Fund and will be expanding its ownership and in turn, Catalyst Multifamily’s property management portfolio over the next several years to at least 7,500 multifamily units with a focus on Texas and Colorado (and possibly other markets).
The Fund will target Class B multifamily residential assets located in markets with strong job and population growth and close to employment centers. The Fund intends to employ a value-add based strategy, targeting properties that can be purchased below replacement cost, which require capital improvements and operational assistance to achieve their full potential. The Fund will target assets with 150 to 500 units acquired at an all-in cost ranging from $11 million to $50 million.
MBP acquires properties in need of improved management and capital improvements, allowing the Fund to generate strong risk adjusted returns. Post-acquisition, the Fund intends to utilize the significant experience of the General Partner plus sophisticated external resources, including relevant contractors and vendors, to increase asset value.
The Fund will target mismanaged and/or under-invested properties, which (i) are inefficiently operated, (ii) have significant deferred maintenance, (iii) have not increased rents to market, and/or (iv) do not offer competitive amenities.
Mike Phillips and Cathy Finn (the “Principals”) are the senior executives at MBP. The senior team has 80 years of combined experience in the real estate industry, including significant experience in acquisitions, property management, investment sales, and construction management. Since October 2011, the Principals have executed 19 investments that exemplify the Fund’s investment strategy. As of June 30, 2018, 11 of these investments have been realized, generating a 60.2% gross IRR and a 2.63x gross MOIC.
The fundamentals specific to the multifamily residential sector continue to strengthen, with occupancy rates nearing all-time highs and rental rates growing above the historical average. Furthermore, the Fund’s target markets are boosted by job growth, population growth, declining home-ownership rates, and challenging credit markets for home-buyers. Debt markets are very strong with government agency financing (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), offering long-term fixed rate loans at attractive interest rates and other lenders offering shorter-term bridge loans for value-add properties. The General Partner believes that the Fund’s investment strategy, which is targeting a 14.0-17.0% gross pre-tax IRR, with at least a 6.0% gross pre-tax yield, presents a compelling opportunity to generate attractive risk adjusted returns for the Fund’s investors.
