Real-estate investors have a mountain of money looking for a home. Lately a lot of it is ending up in suburban single-family houses.
Invitation Homes Inc.,
the country’s largest rental-home owner, on Wednesday disclosed a joint venture with Boston property investor Rockpoint Group LLC that will result in more than $1 billion for the landlord’s ongoing house hunt.
Invitation, which owns about 80,000 houses, has been buying at a clip of roughly $200 million a quarter since a pause at the onset of the coronavirus lockdown. It sold $448 million of new shares in June to fuel its expansion, and the agreement with Rockpoint will add enough cash to buy about 3,500 more homes, said Dallas Tanner, Invitation’s chief executive.
It is the latest example of cash flowing from large money managers to single-family-rental companies. Financiers created the companies a decade ago to buy foreclosed homes by the
In 2011, then-Mayor Rahm Emanuel argued that Chicago taxpayers are “not an ATM machine” and can’t afford to be the financial backstop for the $660 million renovation of Soldier Field.
The bonds that financed the Soldier Field project are paid off with part of the city’s hotel tax — but that financing package also assumed hotel tax revenue would grow by a rosy 5.5% a year. When it doesn’t, Chicago taxpayers make up the difference.
Emanuel was bracing for a $1.1 million hit that year, though in the end, the city lost just $185,000 of its state income tax revenue. Emanuel dumped three stadium authority board members and ordered their replacements to change the financing structure. But those changes were never made. The city remains on the hook.
Now, it may be time to turn on the ATM machine once again.
The stadium deal, announced in 2001, included a 2-percentage-point
(Bloomberg) — Blackstone Group Inc. is pouring more cash into mobile-home parks, a corner of the commercial real estate market that is holding up in the pandemic.
The alternative asset manager is in exclusive talks to acquire roughly 40 parks from Summit Communities for about $550 million, according to people with knowledge of the matter. The majority of the properties are located in Florida, said some of the people, who requested anonymity because the transaction isn’t public.
Real estate investment trust Sun Communities Inc. was among the bidders for the Summit portfolio, some of the people said.

Blackstone is set to make the investment through a vehicle known as Blackstone Real Estate Income Trust, or BREIT, and plans to spend money upgrading the properties, including shared facilities such as swimming pools, one of the people said.
