Christina Real Estate raises equity commitments of $ 44 million

Christina Real Estate Investors has completed Christina Real Estate Investors 4 with $ 44.1 million equity commitments from more than 150 investors in the United States. The platform, part of a programmatic series, was launched in 2019 and has already acquired seven properties in the Los Angeles area.

Christina 4 has acquired six residential properties, including a total of 61 units near CBS Television City, a 22-unit condominium that is about to break ground, and a 15-unit beachfront lot in Playa del Rey. The seventh property is a 7,500 square foot retail property in the West Third Street shopping district. These assets are all in line with the company’s investment strategy of owning and operating high quality properties in prime locations that can generate high returns.

In the third quarter, the Los Angeles housing market had already returned to pre-pandemic activity, so research by Marcus & Millichap. The rental of apartments is at a 15-year high, which shows the strong tenant demand. The demand is so good that the vacancy rate has fallen to 4% and rents have increased by 3% over the course of the year. Delivery bottlenecks are driving activity. The momentum is strongest in the luxury segment, where Class A vacancy rates have declined in all major sectors of the Los Angeles market. Although there will be 10,500 new home deliveries this year, only Greater Downtown Los Angeles, which includes Mid-Wilshire and Hollywood, reports an increase in supply. However, the Westside Cities, San Fernando Valley and South Bay-Long Beach will see a 10-35% decrease in new home deliveries.

Christina Real Estate is undoubtedly benefiting from this rebound. The company has already announced that it will launch a platform in the series, Christina 5, later this year.
