NewStar Exchange announced the acquisition of Tranquil Gardens, a single-family rental subdivision located in the Woodstock suburb of Atlanta, Ga.
The property is 95 percent leased and features 73 newly constructed three- and four-bedroom detached and townhome plans with two-car garages, luxury vinyl tile floors, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and fenced-in backyards. NewStar Exchange acquired the property on behalf of NewStar 6 Tranquil Gardens BTR, DST.

NewStar 6 Tranquil Gardens BTR, DST is financed with a first mortgage through Freddie Mac, offering 40 percent leverage to DST investors on the offering’s syndicated basis, and seeks to raise approximately $19 million in equity from accredited investors. The minimum investment is $100,000 for 1031 investors and $25,000 for cash investors. The offering is being distributed by Preferred Capital Securities.
