Pure Multi-Family REIT LP Announces Closing of Previously Announced Property Disposition for US$17.85 Million

VANCOUVER, Sept. 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Pure Multi-Family REIT LP ("Pure Multi") (TSXV: RUF.U, RUF.UN, RUF.DB.U; OTCQX: PMULF) announced today the successful and profitable sale of Oakchase Apartment Homes ("Oakchase"), located in Arlington, Texas, a submarket of Dallas-Fort Worth, for gross proceeds of US$17.85 million.

Oakchase is comprised of 236 residential units, situated on 10.2 acres of land and was built in 1984.  As part of Pure Multi's commitment to create value for its unitholders through selective dispositions of its Class B assets, Pure Multi intends to use the net proceeds from this sale towards the previously announced acquisition of a newly constructed asset located in San Antonio, Texas, which is expected to close on September 30, 2015.

Oakchase was purchased as part of Pure Multi's initial public offering portfolio in July 2012 for US$13,580,133.

Stephen Evans, CEO stated, "We are very happy to continue to execute on our value-add strategy culminating in the successful sale of Oakchase, one of the oldest assets in our portfolio, at a significant profit, where we realized an annualized gain on the equity invested of over 27%. We are pleased to once again be able to utilize the 1031 like-kind exchange that exists in the U.S., as we intend to re-invest the net proceeds, on a tax-deferred basis, in the previously announced acquisition of a brand-new property located in San Antonio, which will enhance the overall quality of our portfolio."
