Cook Properties Acquires 255-pad mobile home park portfolio in the Buffalo, NY MSA
On December 23, Cook Properties acquired the interests in a two-park portfolio consisting of 255 pads in the Buffalo NY MSA. The two parks are located in the towns of Akron and Lockport. “We are very pleased to complete our first purchase west of our Rochester headquarters. These properties, although stabile, still have some upside through filling vacant pads and management efficiencies”, said CEO Jeffrey Cook.
We are anticipating equity returns in the low teens throughout our hold period. Brokerage services were provided by Enon Winkler of Other Street Advisors and financing was arranged by Chris San Jose of Yale Advisors. “Both groups did an excellent job. They delivered great services, said Cook.”
Since Jan 1, 2020, Cook Properties has closed on seven mobile home parks and storage facility properties totaling $46mm. “It has been a very productive year. 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 $7mm under contract; scheduled to close in March 2021. We anticipate purchasing another $70mm in parks and storage properties in 2021. We have a great team of employees that take great pride in their work,” Brian Cook, Cook Properties’ COO said.
