This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet

CBRE Affordable Housing has sold Carpenter’s Point, a 150-unit senior housing community in Dallas that opened in 2010.

Carpenter's Point Senior Living, Dallas

The property was financed as part of the Section 1602 Tax Credit Exchange Program. Zimmerman Properties, in partnership with the Raymond James Housing Preservation Fund, purchased the property with assistance from National Housing Advisors LLC for an undisclosed price.

Dmitry Gourkine and Johnathan Smith of CBRE Affordable Housing, and Chris Deuillet and Chandler Sims of CBRE’s Dallas office represented the seller.

“Carpenter’s Point is the first Tax Credit Exchange property to be sold in the state of Texas and the second that CBRE Affordable Housing has sold in the country," Senior Vice President Dmitry Gourkine said in a statement released with the sale. “This program allows properties to be sold fee simple earlier in the Tax Credit Compliance Period and provides tax benefits to the seller — while keeping properties available to the low-income residents who need it the most.” 

The Tax Credit Exchange Program was part of the 2009 federal stimulus package, known as the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. The program was created to offer grants in lieu of tax credits to stimulate the creation and renovation of affordable housing, according to the Texas Low-Income Housing Information Service.

Carpenter’s Point is at 4645 Dolphin Road and has maintained a historically high occupancy with a wait list of over 1,000 applicants. All units are restricted to residents 55 and older who earn at or below 60% of average median income.

The property has a Project Based Voucher contract with the Dallas Housing Authority. That voucher closes the gap between tenant payments and unit rent.

CBRE Affordable Housing is a specialty group within CBRE Group that combines investment sales, debt and structured finance, and investment banking into a fully integrated service offering for clients in the affordable housing industry. The group has closed over $16.2B in sales and financing since 2001 and has conducted transactions in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.
