CARROLL Executes Multiple LP Acquisitions in Three Sun Belt MSAs for More Than $200 Million

These CARROLL-Owned Deals are a First for the National Real Estate Investment Firm, Representing a New Investment Milestone in its Growth

CARROLL, a national real estate investment firm, today announced the acquisition of three LP deals across North Carolina, Texas, and Arizona for a combined purchase price of more than $200 million. These three separate transactions represent more than $80 million in equity and add more than 650 total units to the Firm’s portfolio.

CARROLL’s track record as a GP and its continued growth in capital raising enables the Firm to fully acquire certain deals through its latest fund vehicle. This new chapter should enhance the Firm’s credibility in the marketplace and help secure more concentrated decision-making control for its investments.

With an average build year of 2017, the three properties are located in high-growth Sun Belt MSAs – Charlotte, Austin, and Phoenix. These cities all feature high in-migration trends, strong job growth, and diverse employment centers, presenting an opportunity for CARROLL to create additional value for residents and their respective communities. The Phoenix acquisition marks the Firm’s first entry into the Arizona market and it is reentering the Austin market with its most recent purchase. The Sun Belt region has notably outperformed other regions in recent years as individuals have been drawn to the region’s business friendly environment, warm weather, and relative affordability.

“As we continue to evolve as a company, we are excited that our recent fundraising efforts have provided us enough capital to wholly own these three deals in which we have strong conviction,” said M. Patrick Carroll, founder and CEO of CARROLL.

These three acquisitions bring CARROLL’s year-to-date transaction activity up to twenty-four with 10 acquisitions and 14 dispositions representing $2.0 billion in transaction volume.
