“We are excited to realize the rapid appreciation of these properties through the vision and execution of our dedicated team,” said Jeffrey Simpson, managing partner of Arch Companies. “Our vertically integrated team was able to recognize market shifts underway before the pandemic and, through analysis and deep knowledge of the national real estate landscape, were able to identify underperforming assets in strong markets outside New York City with robust investment upside.”

Arch spent $20 million renovating most of the units in the last two years. 

“These markets have benefited from tremendous rent growth and these well-located assets have been teed up by current ownership for successful repositioning by the next investor,” Hill said. 

Arch has assembled approximately 5,000 units, excluding the 2,000 it just sold, in different states and gateway urban markets across the Sun Belt and the Northeast, including a value-add multifamily component.
