CBRE Sells 65 Hotels
CBRE has arranged the sale of a 65-property, 7,865-key hotel portfolio spread across 27 states. Service Properties Trust, a Massachusetts-based REIT, sold the portfolio to 21 separate buyers for a total consideration of about $514 million.
Al Calhoun and Mark Fair of CBRE Hotels’ Capital Markets Institutional Group represented the seller in each transaction. The list of buyers includes mostly family offices and some private equity firms.
The portfolio is comprised of 14 Sonesta Simply Suites, 32 Sonesta ES Suites and 19 Sonesta Select hotels. More than half of the portfolio’s 65 hotels are in the top 25 most populated U.S. metro areas, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, San Antonio, St. Louis and Washington DC.
By region, the Midwest has the most hotels with 20 and the most rooms with 2,364. The Northeast/Mid-Atlantic has the second highest concentration with 18 hotels and 2,347 rooms.
“This transaction represented a highly strategic disposition execution for Service Properties Trust, generating substantial sales proceeds and converting a majority of the properties from managed to long-term franchised, contributing to the growth of Sonesta’s franchise business,” said Fair, vice chairman at CBRE in Atlanta.
The last four quarters ending in Q3 2022 saw about $43.8 billion in hotel investment in the U.S., a 20.3 percent increase over Q3 2020-Q3 2021, according to a recent CBRE report. Over the last four quarters, hotel investment in the U.S. has made up 5.1 percent of total capital markets activity.
Manufactured housing closes year on cool note, but optimism grows for 2023
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas’ manufactured-housing industry ended the year on a low note, according to the latest Texas Manufactured Housing Survey (TMHS). Respondents unanimously noted a decrease in business activity relative to November. The industry extended a year-long pullback on production as higher interest rates impacted demand and reset the housing market more broadly.
“Housing manufacturers are still grappling with decreased demand, forcing them to cut payrolls and reduce workweeks,” said Wesley Miller, senior research associate at the Texas Real Estate Research Center (TRERC). “Inventories are building up on the retail side, resulting in fewer orders for manufacturers until more homes are moved.”
