Peach Property Group, an investor specialising in the management of residential property in Germany, today announced the notarisation of an agreement for the acquisition of a portfolio comprising 221 residential units in Marl in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The apartments are in good condition and currently exhibit an occupancy rate of 95.5 percent. They are located not far from the portfolios already held by Peach Property Group in the Rhine-Ruhr area, which allows administrative synergies to be achieved. The transaction is expected to be completed at the start of January 2019, lifting the total number of units in the Peach Group's residential portfolio to over 8,600 units with lettable space of 560,000 square metres. The annual target rent will increase by 2.9 percent to CHF 45.5 million.
In addition to this new acquisition, Peach Property also completed all previous property acquisitions as of the beginning of December. These include around 1,100 apartments in Heidenheim near Ulm and just under 400 units in North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony.
Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger, CEO of Peach Property Group, comments: "We are delighted to be able to further strengthen and consolidate our portfolio in North Rhine-Westphalia with this acquisition in Marl and that we have also managed to fully integrate all the portfolios acquired in 2018. This puts us in an excellent position to grow our residential portfolio to 11,000 units in the medium term. Additional acquisitions are reviewed on an ongoing basis."
