Sold! JV plots turnaround for East Texas portfolio

Houston, TX-based LandPark Advisors LLC, in a joint venture with Sunset Capital LLC bought an eight-property self-storage portfolio in East Texas (in the Dallas-Fort Worth MSA). Right Move Storage LLC will manage the portfolio. Extensive improvements and starting up an efficient leasing and management strategy are planned.

“Right Move has intimate knowledge of these assets and we believe there is significant market demand for quality self-storage facilities in these Texas markets. This portfolio will demonstrate both solid occupancy and market rental rates once we implement the turnaround business plan,” said Darren Kelley, President of Right Move Storage in a press release.

Brandon Karr of Marcus & Millichap’s Fort Worth office represented the seller and found the buyer.

“From the beginning we knew this deal was going to be challenging because the majority of the facilities were not yet economically stabilized. While that isn’t terribly uncommon in and of itself, most of the properties were also located in secondary and tertiary markets,” Karr said in a statement, adding that the buyer was able to secure attractive debt financing due to their long history of turning around troubled assets in smaller markets.

The portfolio totals 237,735 rentable square feet and 1,440 units located as follows:

  •  301 Providence Circle in Hallsville, TX
  • 1080 West Main Street in Hallsville, TX
  • 8121 TX-149, 5103 Estes Parkway in Longview, TX
  • 2202 South Green Street in Longview, TX
  • 14281 County Road 168 in Flint, TX
  • 426 South Shelby Street in Carthage, TX
  • 2455 East FM 544 in Wylie, TX.
