Rental homes

A real estate investor just flipped a portfolio of rental homes for a 44 percent gain – in about a week.

Joshua Wagschal sold the portfolio of 52 single-family homes and one four-unit multifamily building, most of which are in Broward County, for $14 million, according to a source close to the deal.

Last week, Wagschal paid $7.8 million to buy the portfolio from European real estate development and management firm, Gram Group.

Miramar-based TGCB Holdings, led by investor Jeffrey Rose, is the buyer. The company financed the deal with a $8.65 million mortgage from Coral Gables-based BAC Florida Bank. The properties were “vastly undervalued” when Gram Group sold them, the source said.

Gram Group renovated the properties after spending about $4.5 million to acquire the homes between 2010 and 2013.

The boost in multifamily real estate investment across the country could be thanks to the new tax that’s expected to push more Americans away from home ownership and into renting.

Last year, Amherst Holdings paid about $26 million for a portfolio of single-family rental homes in Broward and Palm Beach counties. In addition to picking up portfolios of single-family home rentals, private equity firms like Electra America are also launching funds focused on multifamily investment.
