Témpore Properties is shopping at home. The Socimi, listed on the MAB, is finalising the acquisition of a portfolio of 1,110 homes from Sareb worth €160 million. The company, created by the bad bank, is planning to sign the operation before the end of the year, according to explanations provided by its CEO, Nicolás Días Saldaña, during the Investment in the real estate sector through a Socimi listed on the MAB day, organised by Renta 4 and the CEOE.
The Socimi, which specialises in the rental market, will use own funds to complete the purchase of this package, through which it will benefit from the right of first refusal that it has over Sareb’s assets.
This privilege reflects the interest that the bad bank has in ensuring that Témpore achieves portfolio growth over the next few years to become a reference play in the rental segment and debut on the main stock market before 2021, with a portfolio worth €500 million.
On the other hand, the Socimi is working on the sale of 20% of the company’s dispersed assets. The aim of that plan is to raise capital to use to make new investments in developments and entire blocks.
Currently, Témpore has 1,330 homes in its portfolio and generates revenues from rental income of around €7 million. The Socimi has an occupancy rate of more than 90% and obtains an average gross yield of 4.1% from its assets. The management company’s delinquency rate is 3%.
