August 2, 2021 | Pacific Oak Capital Advisors
HOUSTON (August 2, 2021)—Pacific Oak Capital Advisors, LLC, a sponsor primarily focused on commercial real estate-focused alternative investment programs, today announced the recent acquisition of 42 single-family homes in Houston-area suburbs for $6.45 million. The acquisition involved multiple sellers and was completed in an off-market transaction. With this latest portfolio acquisition, Pacific Oak and its affiliates now own and manage approximately 1,850 homes throughout suburban centers in the Midwest, South and Southeast.
The acquisition represents an extension of Pacific Oak’s prior investments in the broader Houston submarket. Pacific Oak paid on average $153,000 per property for the portfolio which is generating average monthly rents just north of $1,300. The majority of homes are located southeast and southwest of Houston in cities like Baytown, Missouri City, Pasadena and Texas City.
“The for-sale housing market in Houston is performing well,” said Ben Aitkenhead, managing director of Pacific Oak Capital Advisors. “Many people, especially those interested in moderate income homes, are turning to renting a home instead of buying, and we are delighted to have been positioned to expand our presence in this strong market.”
Pacific Oak and its affiliates focus their single-family investment platform on quality housing for median-income families who prefer to rent their homes, rather than own. These properties typically feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms and more than 1,000 square feet of living space, providing attractive homes for families.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
