Bascom Group acquires 93-unit single family rental portfolio in Las Vegas

The Bascom Group (Bascom) has acquired a 93-unit single-family rental community within a broader housing district in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The property, Suncrest Townhomes, consists of zero lot-line paired single family homes in North Las Vegas. Bascom purchased the 93-unit single-family portfolio for USD24,750,000 or USD266,129 per unit.  Rialto Capital Management provided the debt financing for the acquisition and was arranged by Vincent Punzi, Lowell Takahashi, and Jack Hunsicker with Berkadia. Apartment Management Consultants (AMC) will provide property management services and interior renovations.

Bascom’s Acquisitions Manager, Tom Gilfillan, says: “Suncrest Townhomes represents a great opportunity for Bascom to continue our expansion into the single-family rental space. Demand for single family home rentals exploded during 2020 as residents sought more space amid a competitive single family home market with historically low for-sale inventory. Suncrest’s expansive floorplans and peaceful neighbourhood will provide residents and their families a unique single family community experience in one of the fastest growing markets in the country”.

Suncrest Townhomes is located in North Las Vegas, an area experiencing revitalisation due to the rapidly growing Las Vegas economy. The property’s proximity to the burgeoning Downtown Las Vegas district allows convenient access to retail, entertainment, dining, and major employment centres throughout the Las Vegas metro. Bascom plans to modernise the existing interiors and implement operational efficiencies at Suncrest, while strengthening its portfolio in the Las Vegas market. Las Vegas’ affordable, lower density housing, pro-business environment, no state taxes, and tourist rebound since the pandemic have made the city one of the strongest apartment markets in the country.

Bascom’s Senior Principal of Operations, Paul Zakhary, adds: “The tremendous value-add potential, exceptionally large floorplans, and quiet cul-de-sac neighbourhood separates Suncrest from other rental properties in the area. We see this purchase as a great opportunity to provide best-in-class improvements to the property, while still offering residents an attractive and affordable place to live”.
