TULSA, Okla., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit Multifamily Group, an affiliate of the Summit Family of Companies, has chosen a new technology, an online platform called Selequity, to present a residential real estate investment opportunity in a Tulsa apartment community. Regency Point Apartments is a garden-style apartment community consisting of 192 apartment units located in the affluent central area of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The property is located along E 71st Road, which connects east/west traffic in central Tulsa and provides access to hospitals, premium residential, shopping, and major highways.
"Regency Point Apartments represents an exciting opportunity," said John Ross, Managing Principal of Summit Multifamily Group. "The premium location combined with the upgrades we are making to the community will provide an enhanced living experience for residents of Regency Point Apartments. We are excited to work with a local St. Louis technology company to open up our investment to a larger pool of accredited investors with Selequity's technology platform."
The property, which was acquired direct from the owner (off-market), is located within the central submarket of Tulsa that features premium housing, employment, and lifestyle options. The property is located about ¼ mile from St. Francis Hospital, which has 8,400 employees, 1,000 physicians and 700 volunteers, making it the largest private employer in Tulsa County.
The property unit mix is 46% townhomes, 38% two bedroom with two baths, and 17% one bedroom. The planned renovation to the community will include replacing all windows, installing washer & dryer in all units, upgrading interiors, adding covered parking spots, gating the rear parking entrances, improving landscaping, and other strategic upgrades. Between the prior owner and our planned renovations, the community will have roughly $3.8 million in upgrades ($20,000 per unit).
