Synergetic Investment Group (SIG), a boutique multifamily and student housing acquisitions group, makes its entry into the Tucson off-campus student rental market with the purchase of Sahuaro Point Villas, serving the students at University of Arizona, Tucson. “Sahuaro Point Villas represents a well maintained and extremely well positioned student housing acquisition in a large school market,” says Mark A. Rios, Asset Manager and Capital Markets of Synergetic Investment Group. “Purchasing this property below market value allows us to upgrade the interiors, improve the amenities and reposition the branding to attract those U of A students who would like a unique luxury student life, without paying for the high prices of Class-A product right next to campus.”SIG has engaged University Partners as 3rd-party property management, whose Dallas based principals sold their 22-property, 12,948-bed portfolio (as University Housing Communities) to SCION in 2016 for over $1.4B, making it the largest portfolio sale in the student housing space at the time. University Partners and SIG will also be using Serendipit Marketing to rebrand the property’s online and social media presence.Jeff Greenberg, CEO of Synergetic Investment Group says, “Having institutional quality management and marketing such as University Partners and Serendipit positions SIG for quick growth in 2018 as players in the student housing arena.”Trisource Capital, LLC arranged for senior bridge financing through A10 Capital which closed Dec 22nd, 2017. The selling broker for the transaction was Art and Clint Wadlund of Berkadia Tucson, with Erin Szajna and Anthony Graffiti of Graffiti, Rosensteel and Hall of Scottsdale, AZ as buyer’s side transaction attorneys.
