Silver Portal Capital Announces Closing of $72.1M Cobblestone SPC MHC Fund I

Share Article

Silver Portal Capital announces the final closing of a $72.1M fund with partner Cobblestone Real Estate to acquire and reposition manufactured housing communities nationwide.

It should come as no surprise that MHC has proven to be the least sensitive property type to negative changes in GDP and is a strong performer throughout economic downcycles.

Silver Portal Capital and Cobblestone Real Estate are pleased to announce the closing of the Cobblestone SPC MHC Fund I – the first in a series of proprietary funds designed to acquire and reposition both all-age and age-restricted (55+) manufactured housing communities (MHC) and RV resorts nationwide. The fund’s investment strategy focuses on repositioning through an active management campaign that includes customized property improvements, professional branding, institutional-level financial reporting and operations. To date, the fund has invested approximately $46 million across ten (10) properties in Arizona, California, Florida and Nevada.

The MHC investment thesis sits at a unique intersection of true supply constraint and almost unlimited demand. “Only 10 new MHCs have been developed in the U.S. over the past two decades despite housing affordability remaining at an all time low,” T.K. Frantz, Managing Director at Silver Portal Capital describes. Demand for MHC property – one of the most affordable, non-subsidized forms of housing – is extremely robust and the underlying demographic drivers suggest this demand will only continue for years to come. Given its fundamental supply-demand characteristics, it should come as no surprise that MHC has proven to be the least sensitive property type to negative changes in GDP and is a strong performer throughout economic downcycles.”

Silver Portal expects to be in the market with Cobblestone SPC MHC Fund II – a $100 million offering – by the middle of 2Q20.
