Federal Capital Partners (FCP) announced today its $29.5 million investment in a portfolio of manufactured home communities in North Carolina, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The 1,358 pad portfolio will be owned by a newly created joint venture between FCP and current owner, Horizon Land Co., LLC (Horizon) and is currently 88% leased.
“We are delighted to have formed this venture with Horizon Land Co.,” said FCP Managing Partner, Thomas A. Carr. “Over the last six years, Ryan Hotchkiss and Horizon have built a reputation throughout the region as an excellent investor in, and operator of, manufactured home communities. Manufactured home communities offer their residents the opportunity to own their own home at a substantial discount to either owning or renting a home in markets throughout the Mid-Atlantic. For investors, these properties offer an excellent investment opportunity as well, typically offering strong and extremely stable cash flow. For FCP, this is a very logical extension of our multifamily strategy.”
“Horizon Land Co. has focused exclusively on the ownership and operation of manufactured housing communities since its formation in 2006,” said Ryan Hotchkiss of Horizon Land Company. “At Horizon, ethical practices are as important as profit, and we have achieved both as we have strived to provide our residents with safe, quiet, and well managed neighborhoods while at the same time creating a profitable investment. We are excited to be joined in our venture by FCP, who understands and shares our vision and we look forward to working with them to expand and build upon our successful business model.”
