DALLAS, Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- NexPoint Residential Trust, Inc. ("NXRT" or the "Company") (NYSE: NXRT) announced today the December 30, 2022 closing of the sale of Hollister Place in Houston, TX, a 260-unit property built in 1997. The Company acquired the property for $24.5 million on February 1, 2017 and completed an extensive repositioning and value-add initiative, improving both the common area amenities and a significant portion of the unit interiors. As of December 29, 2022, the property was 93.07% occupied with a weighted average effective monthly rent of approximately $1,200. Net proceeds from the sale were approximately $20.6M, delivering a trailing nominal cap rate of 4.37%, a 13.5% levered IRR and a 2.02x equity multiple, each of which well exceeded expectations. Management used the net proceeds from the sale, and proceeds and reserve deposits received from the 18-property mortgage refinancing announced on December 1, 2022, to make a $25.6 million paydown on the Company's corporate credit facility on December 30, 2022, continuing our strategic de-leveraging and balance sheet improvement initiatives. This paydown reduced the drawn balance on the facility to $72.6 million, a 78% reduction from September 30, 2022.
Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce the execution of a purchase and sale agreement to sell Old Farm and Stone Creek at Old Farm in Houston, TX, with an expected closing in late Q1 or Q2 2023. The Company expects the dispositions of these assets to generate approximately $62 to 64 million of net sales proceeds at an approximate trailing nominal cap rate of 4.97%.
And as previously disclosed, the Company has executed a new loan application to refinance The Venue on Camelback, with an expected closing date on January 31, 2023. This refinancing is expected to further improve the Company's weighted average debt maturity and cost of capital going forward.
With the completion of these sales and refinancings, the Company expects to pay off the full $72.6 million outstanding balance on the corporate credit facility by the second quarter of 2023. The combination of these asset sales, refinancings and maturity extensions, on a significant portion of the Company's first mortgage debt at favorable terms, provides greater strategic flexibility, increases liquidity and modestly "de-risks" the Company's balance sheet heading into 2023.
"NXRT is thrilled to enter 2023 fulfilling our strategic objectives to sell out of our positions in the Houston market, completing our portfolio refinancing initiatives, and paying off our most expensive debt capital. These maneuvers unlock liquidity the Company can use to repurchase shares, should our stock continue to trade at a material discount to our internal NAV estimate, and/or to pursue attractive internal and external growth strategies should those opportunities present themselves throughout the new year.," said Matt McGraner, Chief Investment Officer.
