On September 17, Cook Properties acquired the interests in a four park portfolio consisting of 488 pads in the Rochester NY MSA. The four parks are located in the towns of Canandaigua, Farmington, and Batavia. “We are very excited about this purchase. The properties have been professionally managed for years but there is still upside through filling vacant pads and economies of scale, given we already own several properties in the area and our corporate offices are local too.”
We are anticipating equity returns in the low-mid teens throughout our hold period. Financing was arranged by Gerry DiMarco and Pierce Redmond of Security Mortgage, also based in Rochester NY. “The guys at Security Mortgage did a great job. We certainly will continue to work with them in the future.”
Since Jan 1, 2020 Cook Properties has closed on four mobile home parks and storage facility properties totaling $31.5mm. “It has a been a solid year so far. Although there have been some challenges due to COVID, we have been able to work around them and adjust our operations accordingly. We have another $20mm under contract that we plan to close on before the end of the year.”
