The Praedium Group, a New York City based national real estate investment firm and Price Realty Corporation, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, have sold Estancia at Ridgeview Ranch in Plano, TX to a private buyer after a 13-month holding period. “The Praedium Group recognized the growth potential of the Texas markets after the financial crisis and has been strategically deploying capital in the state, including the Dallas-Fort Worth multifamily submarket,” said Mark Lippmann, Managing Director of The Praedium Group. “Estancia is an excellent example of our ability to identify a high-quality asset that was underperforming and then implement a pro-active management plan to realize improved operations over an abbreviated timeframe.”

Lippmann continued, “The Praedium Group currently owns in excess of $250 million of assets in Texas and we expect to continue to be an active participant in these markets in 2013.” Michael Ochstein, President of Price Realty stated, “Praedium recognized the value of this transaction, and was able to react quickly and arrange desirable financing. Together we fully stabilized this 500-unit multifamily asset and improved revenues by 10.9% over our holding period.”

As part of its ongoing investment strategy, Praedium continues to manage the properties within its existing portfolio, and identify assets throughout the country for new acquisition. Estancia at Ridgeview Ranch was acquired by The Praedium Fund VII, L.P., a $900 million real estate private equity fund with current holdings of $2 billion.
