ATLANTA, Sept. 30, 2021

ATLANTA, Sept. 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A joint venture between the Auerbach Opportunity Fund II, LP ("Auerbach Funds") and Atlantica Properties ("Atlantica") has sold the last home in its single-home portfolio, originally purchased from the Housing Development Corporation ("HDC") of DeKalb County, Georgia.

The portfolio was extraordinarily successful...and we feel that everyone, from our investors, to the community, and to the end buyers ended up with a victory.

Upon acquisition of the portfolio, Atlantica contacted each renter and offered them an opportunity to purchase the home at fair market value. If the tenant declined to purchase the home, they could remain until the end of their lease term or move to a month-to-month lease until they found another affordable rental option. 

Peter Auerbach, Managing Member of Auerbach Funds says, "Our Funds have a strong business and personal relationship with Darion and Trent Dunn of Atlantica Properties.  To date, we have worked on four separate transactions representing more than 500,000 square feet.  One of our prime objectives is to 'do well by doing good'; this investment was a testament to the ability to do both.  The portfolio was extraordinarily successful on a return basis, and we feel that everyone, from our investors, to the community, and to the end buyers ended up with a victory."

"The process was not easy, especially since we received offers from investors who were offering cash," said Darion Dunn, managing partner of Atlantica Properties. "However, we wanted to make a positive impact on the community by preserving affordability and neighborhood stability, and we feel like we accomplished that," he added.
